Tucked away from busy city traffic is Luna Rossa Italian Restaurant, a gem situated at the southern end of the sparkling Gold Coast. With the beach just minutes away from this well-loved Tugun local, Chef and owner Orlando Piccinini provides a personal touch when serving up specialties designed to nourish and delight. Order delicious mains like grilled fillet steak, topped with green peppercorns and French mustard in a dry sherry and cream sauce; or perhaps ricotta and spinach ravioli, served with baby spinach in a creamy tomato sauce. Pizzas are also popular with regular diners, offering classic flavours such as meat lovers’ delight and ham and pineapple; or pick up a slice of pizza picante, with prawns, fresh avocado and sweet chilli sauce, topped with mozzarella cheese…buon appetito.
