The Italian Restaurant, Luna di Mare is the winner for fine dining restaurants at the Hilton Rose Hall Resort and Spa. Two Saturdays ago, it was an elegant evening for my party of four. It was also a refreshing experience compared to the mediocre service, quality and poor range of options offered by the Main Buffet Restaurant and Grills during the days.
Our waiter, Kenrick pleasantly greeted the table and within 5 minutes our appetizers arrived, of which we all chose the Seafood Soup of the day. It was a bit spicy, but to the right degree. I must also point out that the table’s serving of garlic bread came with a very tasty Pesto sauce. Their menu included Pizzas, Pastas and Piattis with salivating descriptions of a Salmon Filet Risotto, Seafood Medley Pasta with creamy tomato sauce, Smoked Salmon Spaghetti with pesto cream sauce and more. Kenrick was quite knowledgeable about the menu and based on his description of various items on the menu I ordered the Fusilli Marinero, the Seafood Medley consisting of fish, scallops and shrimp with creamy tomato sauce. I suppose either my friends were not feeling as adventurous that night or the dish just seemed so appealing that we all ordered the same thing. The pasta was as good as we thought it would be.
Our servings were filling and the quality so satisfactory to our standards, that there was no room or need for dessert, so we enjoyed the quiet, dimly lighted setting with Italian themed wall paintings as we chatted about current affairs and sipped Chardonnay.
