We have been residents here for 14 years and this is one of our favorite places to come for some excellent Italian cuisine. The pasta is always al dente, and the sauces are amazing. We never have had a bad experience here. Sometimes, you have to wonder about some of the reviews. Usually, we don't come with 12 or 20... More

Luna has the best salads around, and they are large enough to feel a family of 4! Their dressing is off the charts, and they serve home-made garlic knots with this awesome spicy spread - addicting. I love their pizza with the sesame seeds on the crust. Their entree portions are immense, and almost require that you come with your... More

The best mussels marina I've ever eaten. The marinara sauce is so good you need to eat it with a spoon. Their fresh hot bread and spicy dip are also very good. Make sure to bring a check or cash! You will be amazed at the portions.

Have given this eatery so many chances. Keep getting disappointed each time I go back. The servers are not the friendliest, but that is not my main concern. The food is plentiful but not the best. If you are looking for quantity and not quality, then this is the place to go. I have had food served to me that... More

I have been to Luna's hundreds of times ... I still say they are top shelf in the Venice area. I had a restaurant myself and taking all things into consideration they do a great job and are the best & busiest restaurant in Venice for over 20 years. Food is great, the server's have always been very good and... More

Nice place on Main Street. Out door seating allows you to people watch. Food was very good and plentiful.

I am used to NY Italian and had a very hard time here in Florida finding anything close. Luna meets my needs. My family loves this restaurant and this is our go to comfort food place. I love the shrimp Dominique and the shrimp parm. Chix parm is a favorite of my son and they sell their sauce in containers,... More

Living in Venice, I've been here several times. It has so much potential with the location and building, but the food is not very good. And, on top of that, you will receive enough to feed you three meals a day for all week! My boys get the pizza and they don't complain too much about that, so maybe it's... More

My family and I ate here recently and since it had been such a long time we forgot how big the dinners are. We each ordered something different and had plenty of leftovers to feed us for the next three days. The next time we will share!

Went there with a party of 9. Our table was waiting for us when we arrived. We had excellent service with a server who had a good sense of humor. As everyone else has said the portions are HUGE !! Either plan on splitting a meal or as I did plan on taking half home for a dinner later in... More
