I cannot believe that I have only just found this restaurant, it's been in Oxford since the 1970s. Simple, rustic but very appealing relaxed atmosphere. The calves liver was simply amazing, great selection of wines. Very expansive menu - good value.

We were seeking an alternative to English food and found Luna Caprese on line....the food and price were excellent and we enjoyed a delightful chat with the owner Luis. Not fancy, just good food.

A group of us went here with a friend for her birthday. The food was good, but they seemed to overcharge us, and wouldn't give us a proper bill so that we could check it.
