About
Established in 2013, owners Renzo and Crystal were honeymooning in Tiburon and came across the vacant restaurant on a romantic stroll on Main St. They put a lot of love into the renovations to enhance the beautiful spot. Executive Chef Renzo has been a restauranteur for over 15 years and his new wife Crystal is happy to assist with the front of house. The name Luna Blu means blue moon in Italian, it relates to their honeymoon and also something special and rare "once in a blue moon". Serving weekend brunch, lunch and dinner. We are business partners of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch Program, which means we only serve sustainable seafood. Also our meat and poultry is all naturally raised
