My friends and I had a function to go to in Guilford Ct. -so being that I had a Groupon - to try at LaLuna - I suggested we go there for early dinner afterwards. Restaurant is easy to find and has plenty of parking....And quite nicely decorated with a fireplace and full bar- different banquet rooms etc. And the day we went - a Saturday at 3:30 pm - the place was Fully packed- with 2 large functions going on - but we were seated promptly- and the waitstaff was very pleasant. The lunch menu was still on for another 1/2 hr. But with Groupon - it was for dinner - so we ordered from the dinner menu! Our salad was quickly delivered. My friend also had pasta fagiole soup- it was good she said - but it tasted like tomato soup with beans- not like what she is used to All 3 of Our pasta dishes - 2 -zuppa di pesce- fra Diavolo- And 1- pasta carbonara- were ok. The pasta was pasty and had small clumps of stuck together linguini / and angel hair - that we couldn’t eat. But everything else (seafood) in our plates was good. We were disappointed but we saw the foods- going by us - to other tables - and said we would come back and try something else ( but not pasta) and we were told the brunch buffet - was really good - so we may do that next time. They have several desserts -as well - and the carrot cake was delish! When we were leaving they were setting up for another huge party coming in. Check them out if you are in the area. Try using Groupon - it helps us to be able to try new places - more often !More

It was my first time going here and I must say it was a good one. The restaurant is easy to find and has plenty of parking. I was here for a brunch banquet and the seating was good with a good variety of food...to chose from. The food was very tasty and the staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely go back here based on this experience.More

Recently dined at La Luna's restaurant and I wasn't thrilled with my meal, nor were the two people I was with. I ordered the scallops with lobster risotto and though there was plenty of lobster meat in the risotto, it was too dry and not...very flavorful. I expected something a bit creamier as this is how the risotto I have had at other restaurants was prepared. Since there are many other Italian restaurants in the area, I don't anticipate returning for dinner. On a positive note, I will say they have the best Sunday brunch in the area! I will return for that.More

La Luna is a Southern Connecticut favorite for the 50 + crowd. Weekends at La Luna include live music and dancing in the bar. The full menu is also available. Sunday’s, choose the brunch buffet. It is typically a great variety of seafood, pastas, and...other Italian favorites. Most guests appear to be families there for an occasion. Otherwise, other places like Eli’s are a better bet. Overall La Luna is a decent night out, or a great place for a holiday or business gathering.More

This restaurant is popular on the weekends when there is entertainment & a Sunday Brunch. The food is ill-prepared. The salmon was watery. This was my second time here, & I had a different ill-prepared meal & lousy waiter the first time too.

We were looking for a place for a leisurely lunch, and we got lucky with La Luna. The lunch menu is extensive, and the Monday Lunch Special offers a 2 for $25 menu that includes soup or salad, main dish, and dessert. The fettucini a...la Luna had plenty of lobster meat bathed in a scrumptious sauce, the linguini with fresh clams was also very satisfying. Wish we could have tasted all six desserts, we'll have to go back and maybe begin the meal with all of the desserts next time.More

La Luna has always been the place to go to for excellent food and phenomenal specials. I especially enjoy their Monday Lunch Specials, 3 courses, soup or salad, entree {20 to choose from}, very generous servings and dessert for 2 for only $25.00. You can't...beat that and did I mention the divine garlic knots with a delicious chimichuri dipping sauceMore
