We were hosting a small party at home and didn't want to cook. We ordered the chicken pot pie and the key word is PIE. It is a full size pie and delicious. It worked perfectly for us.

This is the closest I've tasted to "real" Italian food, since, living near "little italy" Philadelphia. The portions are HUGE, gives a new meaning to "family size"; the whole Soprano family, would have leftovers!

We visited Luna Ristorante after a long day of sightseeing and hanging out at various tiki bars with great friends. There could be no better way to end a perfect day than with our first dinner at Luna Ristorante! From the character of the restaurant, to the super friendly waitress, to the killler Italian Food and finally good wine, it... More

On a rainy Saturday we decided to take home a pizza. This is the first time we've had a carry-out pizza from the Luna Ristorante but it will not be the last. Our order was handled quickly and, most important, the pizza was excellent.

Dinner is a lot of Italian food. You'll need carryout boxes. Good Italian food and pizzas. Just beer and wine.

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!

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.
