Luna is gem that you must never miss if you are in the vicinity of Savona, actually it is worth a rather long detour. It is seldom that you find extremely well prepared food, excellent selection of wine mixed with a very friendly and embracing atmosphere, at a very decent price level.

The two owners of Luna put pride and dedication into all they do. Step into the restaurant on a non busy day and you will in a second know what I’m talking about.

The menu selection is rather simple, but exquisite and pure homemade, no shortcuts here.
Don’t let the menu selection scare you off if you bring your kids to the restaurant. Children are also welcome, my daughter at 7 enjoyed some of her best meals here, just ask the kitchen to prepare something for the kids and they will do magic, but don’t expect pizza.

Actually Luna embraces the full essence of the Italian cuisine, simple recipes prepared from the best vegetables, meat and fish, turned into something magnificent, so if you love food and wine, this is definitely worth a visit or visits because it is addictive:-)

This was the best meal we've had in a really long time...and we live in France! We enjoyed every course of our meal here. The owner and his wife are both very welcoming, friendly people. They utilize the local seafood well. Each dish was well balanced and creative with the flavors. To top things off at the end, we had fabulous desserts made by the owner's wife. Each course was complimented with a perfect wine pairing. If you go here, order the special of the day. It is sure to dazzle your taste buds. Do not miss eating here if you are in Savona!

The dishes and glasses were dirty and the red wine was served all to hot. The risotto more tasted like cooked milk - the rice was pre cooked and was not al-dente. Furthermore it was all too salty.

Fantastic food and a great atmosphere.
The owner was such a doll.
We had heard that Savona was famous for their Pesto so asked if he would be able to do one of his pastas with Pesto - he agreed and stuffed it with pesto as well - amazing.

The desserts were amazing..a different take on the normal Italian desserts which were excellent.
A GREAT find in a more seasonal place.

Excellent food and service - Ithe food is traditional Italian but not like the traditional Ligurian seafood place on every corner, the wine selection is small but they carry very good Italian wines, the staff are very friendly and speak English and French. It is good quality fresh ingredients that are local and in season, therefore the menu changes as vegetables come in season. I bring alot of business associates here and I eat there every week I am in town. Its a bit hard to find and like most places in Savona parking is limited.
