We were very impressed to find such a high quality restaurant in this small, cozy town. The service, food and atmosphere was outstanding. We could have been in Dallas, or St. Louis, or Houston and Café Bella Luca would fit in at any of those locations and still stand the test of quality and customer service. You can tell the... More

We have been to this little restaurant twice. Each time several years apart. The quality of the food is exquisite. Everything we have had from appetizers to dessert has been so flavorful and prepared with such appeal to the eye. We will continue to visit when we are in town again.

Around 6pm only two tables were occupied and we quickly learned why. The food is overpriced and the service is bad. Once seated we didn't see a waiter for about 20 minutes - not sure why when the place was so empty. After we ordered our food, we still rarely saw our waiter - except of course to deliver the...

Good Italian food in the middle of the desert. Bella has a good menu and a good wine list. We go back there whenever we visit TorC.

There was very few people in the restaurant, yet we sat at our table with no menu's and no waiters. We just sat and waited and waited. Finally I got up and asked for menu's, a lady did finally bring our menu's and tried to leave as quick as possible. I actually thought she was a hostess they way she... More

Other reviews on the quality of the pizzas didn't pan out on our visit. To be fair we were here the night after Christmas day. Many of the other restaurants near by were closed. I suspect they were anticipating a quiet evening as they had one person on the floor and one in the kitchen. Shortly after we arrived the... More

This was quite a find in the small town of Truth or Consequence. By a large margin they have the best Calimari appetizer I've ever had... They have a nice wine list and the entree tasty and well executed. We had a very nice bottle of wine that was unfortunately a bit "corked" from being stored in a non climate... More

I've been popping in while celebrating my birthday down in T or C in a local hot spring motel. Always friendly, excellent Italian American food considering how isolated the town can feel. Love the calzones, desserts, beer and wine choices, relaxed but professional staff. Happy place!

This is the other T or C restaurant that seems like it's straight out of NYC. Not kidding. Fashionable servers, chefs and decor. The food is dynomite and the ambiance is impeccable. We had a pizza pie there the other night while drinking wine and beer on the back patio. The barren alley's and pink buildings surrounding add to a... More
