Nice dinner

The Luna Ristorante was a very nice place to eat dinner. The food came out fast and hot. The portions are very big, so for a family of four you only need a couple meals. The Stromboli was great.

Would like to comment on the review stating that the staff and owners are rude and compare them to people from New York and New Jersey. I AM FROM NEW YORK and resent that statement. Been going to Luna's for years mainly because their food is the best. As for rudeness, maybe if you stop to think of the arrogance... More

This is one of my all time favorite restaurants! My family and I go to Luna's every trip we take to Venice. The portions are huge so we always get a table full of food and eat left overs for lunch throughout our trip. If you like spicy, get their spaghetti with mario sauce!

Local family members recommended this place - we started with the Volcano spread and it was amazing! We left with a quart to take back to Houston with us! The pizza was the best we have ever had. I definitely recommend the meatball sandwich. This place has amazing waiters and a really cool venue.

We love to stop at Luna at the beginning of our stay in Venice. The portions are always big enough to share a meal and have leftovers for another day besides. Then it is easy to eat in or take along for a sunset beach picnic. Since Luna is located right downtown, it is an easy walk to music in... More

Whenever we visit Venice we always got to this restaurant. Everyone orders their own dish so we have leftovers for when we're too tired from walking on the beach and don't want to go out. On this trip we visited just before the dinner crowd so our food was quick and very good. I especially liked that my wine glass... More

Lots of friends love it at Luna's. Huge portions, good food, good service. Great location on the Island of Venice. You can stroll along Venice Ave after eating to shop and walk off some of the food.

Large portion and a real value when you eat family style. Great owners say hi to Sam and Mike. Don't forget to look at all the pictures on the walls

Yes the portions are very large but that is about it!! The staff is very rude... Rude like they are doing you a favor! Yeah right... The only thing worse was the disgusting meat balls or so they are called... More like meat loaf. Much nicer and trendier Italian place across the park thing on Venice ave!

No locals go here. The Owner is Rude, and the epitome of a Bad Citizen. However, if your a tourist, or a snow-bird from the north-east (think N.Y., N.J., east coast) and used to rude nasty people, you might like it here? The Pizza is not too bad. Not cheap. They open it when they feel like it, and close... More
