Loona Rosa is a place a friend and I like to come when we want to gorge ourselves on an excessively large homemade pizza, loaded with toppings.

We sit in the cosy dining room and chat about what is going on in our lives, and try as we might, no matter how long we sit there, we never manage to finish the pizza.

Portion control is not an option at Loona Rosa and I am not exaggerating when I say that.

For example, the Veal Cutlet Lunch Platter ($9.95) with roasted potatoes had the largest cutlet I’ve seen yet with potatoes the size of a baby’s arm.

The veal was tender, with a hint of allspice, and was smothered in an onion and mushroom gravy.

The other dish I tried was the bacon crammed B.L.T. ($5.75) with homemade fries ($2), both of which were delicious and fresh.

If you’re looking for quantity at a good price then Loona Rosa is for you.
