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.

This has always been one of our favorites in Stillwater but something is different here? Servers/staff were sparse but the ones that were there were trying hard but you could feel the tension. There was no background music. We were told wines were being "transitioned" out and several selections on the menu were unavailable. We were told "we have no... More

There were 15 of us that had dinner at Luna Rossa in Stillwater. We had dinner in the back cave part of the restaurant, it was very neat and had a great atmosphere. Our service was nice and we had a great time. The cave area was a little chilly, but it was really neat just to be there. Most... More

I purchased the Groupon deal for the Cave Tour with appetizers and wine and we made dinner reservations for after the tour. We had a group of five women, two of whom had been on the tour previously and were returning because they had such a great time, so we were expecting fun. The tour of the cave was informative...

This was a wonderful evening! There were 5 of us ladies. We experienced the wine tasting cave tour and it was AWESOME! Thanks Anna! Very interesting stories! Great appetizers and wonderful wine  We went to the Cave wine store and got 20% off on our purchase. We then headed into the restaurant for an excellent Italian dinner. Our server... More

I would also give this place a zero if it existed. We sat in a booth near the bar. The bartender took our orders and then we waited for an hour. After finally realizing we had been completely forgotten----I walked up to a group of four waitresses and asked them if we could have a waitress. You think at that... More

Made a 2 pm lunch reservation and a cave tour for 3 pm prior to leaving our home in Red Wing, MN. We arrive at the restaurant and confirmed the reservation with the hostess regarding lunch and the tour. My husband instructed the waitress to add the tour fee on to our lunch tab which she did. When the dessert... More

I made a reservation for a bachelorette party here (for tonight) well over a month in advance so I could specifically request the back room that we wanted. I got a phone call last night (24 hours) before my reservation time telling me that they overbooked and I would have no choice but to move rooms and give up my... More

We enjoyed all of the experience here and Sunday was a great day to go as not too busy but just enough for atmosphere and we enjoyed the bartender too.

If I could I would rate this restaurant as a 0. My experience here was terrible. It started off as very slow service. Our server took 10 minutes to even greet us for the first time. We had to ask another server to get our server for us on multiple occasions. Even though it was extremely slow me and my... More

Food was very good - authentic Italian. Very fresh tasting. Restaurant is located within a cave that was used for a distillery years ago - we took the cave tour and it was pretty neat. Prices were on the high side but that seems to be the case for the Stillwater area. Excellent service which was a huge plus!
