Elpida loved a song. she loved italian cuisine even more! so she decided to combine those two and make good on her pledge to provide an exquisite italian dining experience. “luna rossa” is in fact a small house situated in a quiet street in the south of athens offering some kind of private dining. after all it can only serve around 30 guests.
personally, i was lucky enough to reserve a table at the “just the two of us” room; a small space suitable for a maximum of 4 people.
if you have a craving for black truffle you can order some of the signature dishes like the heavenly asparagus topped with egg, the homemade aromatic agnolotti with minced meat and sage or the creamy parmesan risotto. of course there are always the traditional veal tagliata or saltimbocca choices.
if you ask me though, i still have strong feelings about the maltagliati, gorgonzola, pancetta combination that did miracles in emotional arousing. yes! happiness can be found in a pasta dish.
but why not expanding your happiness by ordering a bottle of fine wine from the extensive wine list? so go my friends, let the red moon light the way and lead you to this well hidden gastronomic treasure.
