This is a sweet little trattoria that is classic in its operation, food service and ambiance. The food is the biggest part of the equation and the open kitchen delivers. The meals are large and main dishes are easily big enough to share. This is a nice feature as then you can try the appetizers and have room for desert.... More

Its the personal touch, passion that goes into meal, that sets it apart. We especially enjoy the lamb, the best in Calgary but Chef Benito always has amazing specials to temp you with. Food is prepared using only the freshest, quality ingredients and it shows in every meal that I have ever experienced at La Luna.

We enjoyed our night out at La Luna Rossa restaurant. Small, cozy, family run Italian restaurant. Warm atmosphere, same as if you were really in Italy. The food is amazing and tastes like homemade fresh food. Chef Benny always looks after you, service is excellent, great selection of Italian wines. Overall great value. We will definitely go back.

I have been going to La Luna for years. It is the definition of quality and passion and the review prior to mine actually makes me slightly angry that others would come in and not understand what goes into the word quality and what that takes. Sometimes quality ingredients and hours of time prepping costs the consumer slightly more than... More

If you are looking for authentic delicious Italian food this is the best location in calgary- hands down!! It's a family owned and operated restaurant and everything is of the absolute best quality. Super fresh seafood and meats and perfectly cooked pastas. Honestly unreal! I would chose this place in a heart beat.

We went to this resultant because we purchased a Groupon. The servers are very polite & welcoming. We ordered the Calamari, Pasta & dessert. All I can say is what a waste of money. For what they charge there was hardly any Calamari on the plate 10 pieces maybe, you can go to OPA and get more stuff that tastes... More

We visited the restaurant for the first time many months ago. In October, we visited again for the third time with the same couple that were with us the previous times.

We purchased a voucher and we intend to return! Amazing menu of authentic Italian prepared by the Chef daily (you can see the chef prepare the meals from the seating area). Fresh ingredients in a small venue (this is one of those 'hole in the wall' delights) - reservations are suggested due to the limited dining room seating, but you... More

My family were here as part of a large group and none of us could fault our evening. The venue is so beautifully simple and authentic; the food, service and wine just perfect. We had an amazing evening here and couldn't recommend it highly enough.

The food was very good, and our waitress was extremely helpful. The only problem I have is that it was a bit overpriced. But all in all a good bust, and will definitely be visiting again.
