This was a great place for dinner but you better come hungry! Portions are huge and easily shareable! Their homemade sauce was amazing!

The atmosphere of Luna is what attracted us to this restaurant. They have a lovely outdoor patio with hanging lights and a fire pit. The place was packed so we figured it must be good. We were wrong. However, I will start out with the positives. Aside from the cozy atmosphere, they serve the most amazing bread.I couldn't get enough... More

Horrible!!! Worst place we have ever eaten. The owner was rude. Food was still frozen and she got angry when we complained.

The portion sizes at Luna are incredible. For a party of 4 we order 1 appetizer and 2 entrees and took food home. The food was decent and overall it was a good value for the area.

La Luna is a 'must return' restaurant! The staff were so professional and friendly. The ambiance spans from feeling you are in Italy to romance to super laid back. The food is served family style so either have a number of family and friends or expect to take home leftovers for the next couple of days. The home made meals... More

OK, so the portions are huge and make this review 5 stars. The food is good, the service is fine. It does get busy in season. Great location! Worth the trip.

We've heard so much about this restaurant and the delicious food they serve with huge portions that we finally had to try it. We went for lunch during a recent Venice Art Festival. Sat inside. Our young server came to the table to introduce us to the restaurant and informed us that the restaurant only accepts checks or cash. No... More

If you don't bring a big appetite, stay home and train. This hole in the wall ma and pa operation is actually bigger than it looks from outside. But it's the food not the ambience. Meatballs the size of baseballs , magnificent Veal Francaise with 2 giant cutlets, bracchiole that you count unroll into a doormat, and a small order... More

The Luna is a fine Italian restaurant with plenty of parking . Dinner platters is overwhelming and should be shared with your dinner partner. The salad was enormous and again shared by two . Delicious pastas and fine meat portions made a very enjoyable meal.
