I have eaten both in the restaurant and gotten take out as well. The food, besides being amazing, is served in mass quantitites! I always have enough left over for another meal. The help is friendly - the place is charming - My mother was Italian so I know good Italian food! They don't take credit cards so bring cash... More

Luna has by far the best Italian food in West-Central Florida. Located on a side street adjacent to downtown Venice, Luna is always busy. Have been there about 5 times in the last three years, and never disappointed. Great Food and Pizza, enormous portions (so big that no one can eat all of it so you take it home or... More

The food is good but the service was horrid. If the lady who seated us is the owner she needs a big attitude adjustment!! Wouldn't eat here again if I had to talk to her. Had a problem because we got the wrong dish she literally jerked it away from us!!!! What a B

Very disappointed. Ordered lasagna with salad. Salad was super but entree took an hour and it wasn't lasagna... just a pyrex dish of sauce, melted cheese, noodle pieces, and a few pebbles of meat

We have eaten here several times and have always enjoyed it! The pizza's are HUGE and Awesome tasting! They made a mistake on our "toppings" and the waitress asked us what we would like to do to make the order right, giving the impression that they would do anything we asked! To me, it was the perfect response to a... More

We have found through being in the Venice area for quite a while that ordering, via phone, our dinner "to go" solves the problems of dealing with habitual rudeness. It is much nicer to eat in the comfort of my own home. I call and order our meal for a certain time to be picked up and it is always... More

I've dined here 4 times. The food is amazing; most of the servers are friendly. The hostess, who I believe is the owner, ruins the experience. During my most recent visit, there was a 45 minute wait. When asked questions by various customers who were waiting, the hostess was short and unfriendly. One gentleman who asked to sit down at... More

We just happened onto Luna while wandering downtown Venice (a very enjoyable activity, by the way). Luna is tucked away a bit off the main drag but it's easy to find. They have three types of seating (maybe even four): inside, outside under a cover and wind blocked, outside on the sidewalk at round tables with umbrellas, and the fourth... More

Long time customer had terrible service from the wait staff. Went up and told Mike owner about the poor service. He looked discussed that I brought it to his attention. Leaving after the meal to pay without a bill. Good example of poor service. Told Sam wife and owner about service and no bill. She just walked away saying nothing... More
