Went to Luna for lunch one afternoon after hearing about it from a friend. Walked in and was seated immediately by a very busy waiter named Fernando who actually became our waiter. Food was excellent, service was excellent.Owner pitches right in bringing food orders right out when they are Hot.Somewhat of a comedian at times. After a week we invited... More

A group of us ate at Luna's and we really liked the food. We had Chicken Cacciatore and Chicken Tettara. Both were cooked well with lots of vegetables on a bed of pasta. The Cacciatore had a red sauce and the Tettara had a garlic cream sauce. Both were served with a loaf of hot homemade bread. The server was... More

We ate there about 4 months ago and it was very good, but the tables are so close together that you have not privacy when dining with your husband or friends. We would only go there early so we could have a bit more privacy.

Their servings are so big that each couple got one entree and we shared a big salad between 4 of us. The stromboli with sauce was fantastic!! We sat outside and had a very friendly and attentive waitress.

I had my birthday dinner at Luna this year. We went early (4:45) to avoid crowds and it was a really nice experience. Lots of sports and celebrity autographs covering the walls and ceiling, so there is plenty to look at, if you like that kind of thing. Prices are on the high side, but well worth it for the... More

It has been at least a year and a half since my last visit. Good in the past, but I left shocked at how disturbing this recent experience was. I ordered a side salad and the fried calamari appetizer. The salad was large, and I requested at some point that my calamari order be held. When it was delivered, it... More

My husband and I always try to get to Luna's when we are in Venice. Our go to dish is the Mombo Combo a casserole that is a sampler of pastas served up with lots of cheesy goodness. It is a very large portion and feeds two with some usually left over. I personally love the lava relish but beware... More

We eat here every time we've visited for the last 8 years. Yes the portions are large but who doesn't love leftover Italian? It's not too expensive so cash is never a problem. The owners are very friendly and welcoming as well as the staff.

Everything is fairly good, service was ok. We dined there as a couple and just for our personal choice that much food being set before you is not that appealing. A choice of smaller portions for a couple would be preferable. I guess if you are in the area, it is worth giving Luna a try especially if you have... More
