URBAN USHER: LA LUNA
Published on Urban Usher (April 2013)
La Luna is the place you bring someone you want to knock socks off. Whether its impressing a date with your suave foodie find, or sucking up to the boss, La Luna has the right mix of sophisticated dishes and cosy décor to impress any dinner guest.
For my family, La Luna is the celebration restaurant, the go-to for birthdays, promotions, graduations, end of exam celebrations…. we really find any excuse to head down. The staff never fails to make you feel special, always attentive and offering great suggestions
La Luna is definitely for the carnivorous folk. If your wallet is feeling a little heavy (or if mum is shouting), lighten it with one of their delicious rib eye steaks. At 550gs on the bone, its massive, so prepare yourself and wear stretchy pants. Also, their Gnocchi dishes are always crowd-pleasers.
No matter what your budget is, always save your pennies for dessert. The pannacotta, with its creamy deliciousness, is amazing. If you can’t choose, order the Tasting Plate, although prepare yourself for a fist fight for the last morsel of crème brulee.
