LUNA TRATTORIA ~ When you walk in you'll first see the bar area and the great remodeling which help create the warm atmosphere your about to enjoy. We started with warm homemade bread and Calamari and Marinara dipping sauce for our appetizer. Next Mac got the Orecchioni and I the Penne al Sangiovese. Mac liked it so much he wrote his own review! "I ordered the raviolis in a meat sauce. Although the restaurant was fairly busy we received our orders quick and the our plates were piping hot. My raviolis were green in color, probably made from spinach and resembled broad leaves and were mildly stuffed. The meat sauce was just delicious, I left none behind. Just before receiving our entree they served us a home baked bread that was hot and delicious. As I took my last bite of food I was pleasantly full. Since Fort Bragg only has a couple restaurants that serve Italian meals, I was very impressed with the food, service and especially with my meat sauce. Plus our waiter was friendly, personable, and very attentive." I had the penne pasta with ground sausage in the wine cream sauce, it was so rich and filling with the freshly grated Parmesan. The price is completely worth it, the experience the that Massimo, Chef/Owner, has acquired from his birth home in Italy is a direct reflection within the food. We are going to go back for lunch.
Ravioli above. Bread, Calamari & my Sausage Pasta to the right. Yum!
