Very good food, will be back to try more

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.

Eating here is a MUST every year when we go to Florida to visit my parents. The service isn't always the best, but the food is worth it. They bring out lava and bread before you get your meal. I would describe the lava as being an Italian relish (peppers, onions, garlic, etc.), it is quite spicy but absolutely delicious.... More

Our family including 2 four-year olds went to Luna's on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was crowded and loud and it took a while to get drinks and menus. Food portions are very large-- each entrée serves at least two people with some left to take home. The spaghetti with meatballs and Chicken Alfredo were both exceptionally good. However, I... More

When you leave Luna after dining there, you know you know you are more than satisfied. Luna offers an extensive (mostly Italian) menu which also includes some beef and seafood dishes. After being shown to our outdoor table on a nice warm evening. Our waiter brought out the bread which we glady consumed along with a Stella A draft and... More
