Description: Situated on Walworth Road, La Luna is a real treat if you���re looking for authentic Italian food and a welcoming atmosphere. This small family-run restaurant is popular with South London locals who make the short trip from Elephant and Castle and Camberwell to take advantage of the modestly priced menu. The rustic d��cor and friendly service makes it an ideal setting for lunch with friends or mid-week dinners with the family. On the menu, there are classic Italian pastas and delicious crisp-based pizzas that the kids will love. Popular dishes include the sirloin steak in a red wine and mushroom sauce; and the seafood risotto.

Very friendly welcome on arrival from attentive staff. Restaurant seems like a corner of Italy. Lovely atmosphere. We enjoyed watching the Pizzas being prepared in fround of you. Nothing to hide, just tasty rustic cooking. I had the octopus in a tomato sauce from the specials board and my partner had King Prawns. The King Prawns must have been good as I wasn't offered any! My octupus was tasty but I had visulized pieces of a large octopus rather than whole baby octopus, but I didn't ask. My Calzoni was excellent with plenty of moisture. My partners homemade pasta was tasty. This time I was offered a taste! It was similar to Cannelloni but served with a tomato sauce rather than been stuffed. A couple of Peroni beers went down well.
A very enjoyable evening was had by all. Good rustic well prepared food in a warm friendly part a Italy. Excellent value and far better than typical chains.

We had a warm welcome and attentive staff. It was good to see the pizzas being made. We had the specials which were excellent. A real Italian experience worth coming from Cornwall for!

Dropped into La Luna for late Sunday family lunch. Fabulous food and a very warm welcome from very attentive staff. Mentioned to them that it was Dad's birthday and at the end of our meal the lights dimmed and he received a cake with candle a a round of 'Happy Birthday' from all in the restaurant. Very nice Italian food, lovely caring people, great place, a little gem.

This quaint local Italian continually serves up the best traditional food. Pastas and Pizzas are wonderful. Family run and very welcoming. Never had a bad experience here.

No frills, authentic, and once through the door you are transported to the back streets of Roma. So refreshing after the soul-less Italian chains that have taken over. La Luna is warm and welcoming with great food at great prices. We love it and visit at every opportunity.
