Buenisimo!!!! A very special place. The food was outstanding. We stayed in Lo de Marcos for a week and tried everything on the menu , from pizzas to pasta. Even after we left LodeM and moved to San Pancho for a week and found ourselves coming back in the evenings to have dinner. Laurie and Max, the owners are super nice and accommodating. I caught a 40 lb dorado one afternoon fishing and Max was kind enough to filet and prepare the fish for us . he made a delicious pasta primavera and Greek salad to accompany the grilled fish. it doesn't get any better than this.

Luna is the best thing that has happened to our little pueblo in a long time. I have never been a fan of Italian food but there is something very different about this. I have become totally addicted! Have never had a bad meal! Primivera - vegi - pizzi and Greek salad are my favorite. But have tried many other dishes and they are all excellent. If you get to Lo De Marcos, you must try this restaurant - I promise - you won't be sorry.

This little place offers a welcome respite from traditional Mexican fair in the village of Lo de Marcos. There is one other non-Mexican restaurant in LdeM but it doesn't touch Luna in terms of quality and originality of the food. Three of us had hand made spinach and feta ravioli, prepared perfectly al dente. The 4th in our party had the prawn/camarones. We all had the beet salad with baslsamic reduction and agreed that it was the best salad we had in Mexico. he couple who run this place also cater so they aren't always open. As with most places in the area, it is open-air. The furnishings and decor are simple but clean and well-maintained. The emphqsis is definitely on the food.

We had the pleasure of dining here during our stay in Lo de Marcos. Having read the previous reviews, we brought a bottle of wine with us - only to discover that La Luna now has a liquor license and serves wine and drinks. Laurie, the owner, very graciously allowed us to drink our bottle since we had carried it along - but next time....
The food was excellent - perfectly fried calamari appetizer and the special that night, duck ravioli, was delicous.
We look forward to returning very soon!

Last night four of us ate at La Luna and it was wonderful. Italy in rural Mexico. Max and Laurie do a really good job both with the service and the food. I took a chance and had Max serve me his choice. What a treat! I would recommend this place to anyone.
