With three floors of casual and upscale dining, everyone is sure to find something to satisfy their tastebuds. Highlights include Macellaio RC – an Italian butchery serving certified Piedmontese beef, N.0 Osteria – which features some of the best cuisine of Southern Italy – and Puro’s, an entirely gluten-free and vegetarian restaurant. Luna Park even offers Italian cooking classes, which makes it a great place to both eat and play.
