The red moon is seen as a sign of bad luck, but if you make a trip to Luna Rossa – red moon in Italian, obviously – you’re really onto a winner. They’re one of the best Italian restaurants in Sheffield, and the way that they have made their reputation is away from the tried and tested classics of Italian cuisine (though they are all there and up to scratch as well) and instead offer steakhouse favourites as well. Come to Heeley, on London Road and close to the River Sheaf, to try something special from one of the most respected Italian eateries in South Yorkshire.
There are Italian restaurants in Sheffield like there are Italian restaurants everywhere in the UK, and the competition between them is fierce. To stand out can be difficult, and to elevate your restaurant above the average red sauce and checkerboard tablecloth joint can be hard, but at Luna Rossa on London Road in Heeley, they have managed it through incorporating the best elements of the classic steakhouse into their milieu. They offer 16oz rump, 20oz t-bone, a mixed grill of fillet, sirloin, rib-eye, sausage, lamb chop and fried egg with a selection of chips, vegetables or salad, plus Italian sauces such as Diane, Pizzarolla, Al Pepe and Dolcelatte.
The steakhouse elements are important and they represent what makes the menu at Luna Rossa special, but there are plenty of classic Italian dishes too. You can start your meal with seafood, bruschetta, antipasti platters and garlic breads, and follow it with a huge array of pastas and pizzas, meat and fish, risotto and crepes, plus dessert favourites such as tiramisu, profiteroles and even nutella pizza. Book a table and send yourself over to London Road in Heeley on the south side of Sheffield for an Italian restaurant experience to remember. Book at table, though, as they do get crowded on occasion.
Nothing's too much trouble fabulous variety of foods. Cooked absolutely perfectly perfect offeringl great value for money too would definitely recommend here for a great evening
This was my first time visiting and it did not disappoint, the food was lovely and the service was great too. I was also very happy with the huge amount for vegan choices.
Super food.Served piping hot. Delicious cocktails a good quality house red wine at a reasonable price. Served by efficient and friendly staff who aren't over the top or false ...definitely recommend it.
Fantastic food and service and an amazing vegan menu. Very friendly greeting, food arrived quickly and was delicious. Will definately be going back sometime soon
Was slow service, but it was valentine's day which is forgivable. As the waitress was very nice and apologetic. It's a shame that my main dish (which I've had many times before) was over salted, when I complained the chef said it's a salty dish (which it isn't). It was like they had put 3 tablespoons of salt into the dish. The waitress asked me what to do, so all I could think of was to have cream put into it. Which they did, it made the food ok but not great. It was a shame because the restaurant usually cooks amazing food. This is the first time I was ever disappointed with this place. Will go again because they are usually excellent, just think they had an off day. Which happens sometimes.
A curates egg of a visit. Vegan stuff was magic - well done. The two servers couldn't have been more different. One extremely attentive, pleasant and smiley, the other surly and fierce - more like being served in Paris. Pizzas were excellent, steak cold and the seafood spaghetti distinctly lacking in seafood - although the spaghetti itself and the sauce was really good and tastey. Vegan tiramisu was as good as previous reviews. Would go again because of the great vegan menu otherwise not polished enough to rush back for. For the food that was good the prices are very reasonable.
We were unavoidably delayed, phoned them up to explain, and they kept our reservation open for further 90 minutes. Very clean, could've had heating on a bit more as it was a bit cold. The meal was very nice and plenty of choice on the menu. Good value for money. Staff very friendly and hard working. Overall a really good night out, eventually.
We enjoyed the meal and the restaurant is nice, quiet and reasonably decorated. Staff was very nice and friendly. The vegan meals we had was good, little bit too focused on the vegan "cheese" and vegan "meat" rather than focusing on flavours and combinations of plant based food, which is a shame but it was a good experience
A rare treat for a restaurant to have a vegan menu. Disappointed they had no fresh mint to make a mojito but lovely house red made up for it. Ordered a special of vegan stuffed aubergine and off the menu vegan arancini, both delicious. Amazing to get vegan tiramisu. Starters were disappointing, tough aubergine, old tasting oil and old looking salad.
Really good atmosphere and the staff were welcoming from the start. Food was lovely and great value for money (had to look twice as the bill was so little!) a fantastic night in a lovely Italian!
