A Surprise Treat – Great Italian Food in Coronado

Across from our hotel was a very pleasant looking little restaurant, Luna Rossa, so we decided to wander in for lunch. We never expected such a wonderful lunch! The management is from Florence, Italy, and I haven’t had such good food since visiting Italy a few years ago.

The photos cannot give a real sense of the food. The flavors were perfectly blended and delicious. The salad had the perfect amount of dressing, and the caramel sauce on the flan was outstanding. Everything was presented with attention to detail and made with much care. The staff was also a real pleasure and we enjoyed talking with them very much. We went back for dinner and they were very busy, but considering the workload I think they did an excellent job of giving good service to all their customers.

If you are in Coronado, visit this restaurant if you get a chance. Reservations are recommended in the evening because this restaurant is popular, with good reason!

    This restaurant was being renovated on our first trip. On our second trip we made it our big night out, since it was pricier than all the other meals we had had while in Coronado, El Valle and Pedasi. I had the BEST Sicilian Style Corvina (peppers, onions, tomato sauce) and Ray finally found a place for GREAT BEEF! Imagine that! The steak was worth the $$. We met a few expats there that live in Coronado and other expat/grandparents with their grandkids. Yes, it’s pricey, but it is worth it every so often for an excellent meal.


    • I agree. We spent a bit over $70 for appetizer, main course, wine, and dessert for two, but it was worth it. I get annoyed when I spend a modest amount but get something I could cook better at home. There’s no way I could cook this well at home though, and I’m happy to reward this level of quality with my business.
