Description: In Italy, when you plan a meal for someone you care about, you do many things to prepare. You start with the freshest ingredients of their favorite foods, and then you combine those ingredients with so much affection that you can taste it in every bite. Only the best will do, and here at Luna Rossa Trattoria & Wine Bar, we want you to feel like our family and best friends, and we have been anxiously awaiting your arrival! We hope you feel right at home with us, and like you’ve experienced a little bit of Italy with your best friends and family right here in Stillwater.

I LOVE to eat here! Such great food and the service is always on. I have celebrated quite a bit of Birthdays here and enjoyed everyone. There is also a little spot connected that you can view the caves and purchase wine. :)

Loved the Cesear and Chicken Alfredo. Great atmosphere as well. The only negative was the drunk lady schmoozing with the owner at the bar. I was sitting trying to have dinner with my son.

The 1st restaurant we ate at after moving to Stillwater was Luna Rosa. I love Italian food & was anxious to find a good Italian restaurant in my new town. However, Luna Rosa is NOT it. While I LOVE the ambiance, the food is just so so. Deciding that every restaurant can have a bad night, we decided to try... More

We did not try the food at this restaurant. We did the cave tour and wine tasting which was excellent. The first male host was a Bit over the top but grew on you as you went, the second young gal was extremely knowledgable and fun. The tastings were more like glasses and we were definitely getting our money's worth... More

I have mixed feelings on Luna Rossa. I have been here 10-12 times in the past 2 years my first few visits were really great but the last visits all have been so-so.. Not the quality of food they used to have.The history and atmosphere are really great but the food that i have had recently has just been average.

I just like the place and food. Lots of history in that old building including sandstone tunnels once used for beer.

I have gone to Luna Rossa a few times for lunch. I have always had the "pasta bar" where you pick your own pasta and ingredients you want. It is excellent. A great place downtown Stillwater.

We met friends at, what was for us a new spot and for them an old favorite. The staff was wonderfully cordial and attentive. We found out about their cave for wine storage and how wines; from around the world, can be purchased at off sale prices and consummed in the resturant with your meal. The menu was reasonably priced... More

We were drawn in by the Groupon for the cave tour and wine tasting (which was enjoyable and informative, but glad we did it on the Groupon and didn't pay regular price). While waiting at the bar before the tour we decided to have dinner after the tour and we were glad we did. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the... More
