Very good food, will be back to try more

Some friends were raving about this place so my husband and I went to dinner with them on a recent evening. There are too many Italian restaurants in Venice, so it's hard to stand out.

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

we love to sit outside on the patio for a true Italian experience. The food is very good and they sometimes will make your own combination. Be sure to get a container of Lava to go. Great in your own recipes ("Hot Lava Dawgs" with sweet relish is awesome!.)

We visit Luna's almost every time we are in Venice. The hot pepper "relish" is addictive (so much so that my mother in law surprised me with my very own container for Christmas!). Entree portions are truly enormous, enough to share. Our favorites are the seafood pasta (with pepper relish added) and the lasagna. It is family friendly and has... More

The food is great! The portions are huge!!! They do tell you that and they encourage you to share. One main dish can easily serve two if not 3 or 4. They will provide extra plates. Try a few things and share. Be aware that they do not take credit cards. I have been to Venice 5 times and Luna's... More

My wife and I went to Luna for supper but the minute we walked in the Hostess(who had the personality of a rock) told us "first come first serve". We decided to get take out and you just about had to beg someone to take the order. Again the food was good but the service was horrific !!!!!

The food at Luna's is absolutely delicious! The portions are very large and defiantly made to share. My husband and I shared the chicken parmesan and we're not disappointed. Make sure to bring cash since they do not accept credit cards.
