We arrived late - after dinner, and received excellent service. We enjoyed a couple of nice bottles of red wine with some delicious chocolate desserts. I'd visit again. I'd be interested to see if the food menu is as good as the desserts.

Family restaurant? Staff needs to learn some manners - 16/6/2017 6pm very disappointed. Food average for the price. Child's meal did not come out at all - had to ask for it. Atmosphere ruined by staff member. Will I be returning - not likely.

We had a lovely early week lunch at La Luna, so the restaurant wasn't very busy. Bonus! The menu caters for everyone - the carnivore and the non-red meat fan. We choose the pork loin and my husband wasn't disappointed. I choose the potato gnocchi...More
