Just OK...

Luna used to be much better. We ordered it to go and I think we were overcharged a few bucks. The chicken was swimming in grease and oil. As always, the portions were huge, so we split our entree. We also ordered a calzone that was enormous, but again, greasy. We ordered a quart of Lava to... read more

We have been going to Luna's for years, but I am just now reviewing it after going two weeks in a row. I do have to say, the food, as usual, is outstanding. The prices for the amount of food you receive is also good. There are no complaints there. The service is a different story. We had horrible service... More

So I'm having dinner with friends and a lovely loaf of bread is brought to the table. Manager/hostess (but more of a manager) made a snide remark. I mentioned how I was trying to stay away from eating too much bread and she said" I eat pasta and bread all the time and I don't look like you". What kind... More

Servers are so bad. Foods not that great either. Large amounts of food but not much flavor. To much money.

Our party of six was seated immediately. It was a little early for dinner. We were waited on immediately. Our family member who resides in Venice 6 months a year advised us to try to order one dinner and to share it. My wife and I ordered Angel hair pasta with meat sauce. We were expecting a large portion. (... More

We have been looking for good pizza since moving to Venice, Florida, from CT a year ago. Luna has thin crust and is generous with the toppings. It was very good!

My father winters in the area and said the restaurant had to be visited because it was so good. When we finally got to sit, he was right, the food was good and it was plentiful. Portion sizes border on the ridiculous. I will say that they had great meatballs! The antipasto was enormous, but disappointing. The meats and cheeses... More

Let me say firstly, Luna's has great food,and great portions for the price. However, there comes a time when rudeness of the owners and staff, sadly, trump everything. On a recent visit, I was accosted by a server on my way to the BAR to order TAKEOUT, saying I had to wait to be seated. I kindly corrected her.with "Uh...there's... More

I had friends who told me to come here while I was in Venice, I only made one mistake, I waited till the last day I was here so I had no way to enjoy what would have been some wonderful leftovers. The staff was very busy yet was very attentive and quickly responded to requests. Don't miss this place.

Very busy with no bartender on a Saturday evening. Had to ask server twice for beverage refills and to get bread for the four of us. The food wasn't anything special and quite disappointing.
