Stopped by in the mood for pizza. The sweet waitress Tara gave great service. Average atmosphere but very good food and good value. I'm always pleased when gf pasta is available and they had perfectly cooked gf penne. We will be back.

We've lived in Stuart for over 20 years and Luna was here before we got here. That says something for its quality and service. Both excellent.

We just felt sad. We'd heard so much about this place over the years and when we finally made it our experience was at best mediocre. The atmosphere is old school, familiar, comfortable. The server arrived on auto pilot. No welcome, no specials no nothing, deadpan, blank stare looking out the window. What did we want to drink and gone. Um ok we'll wait to order the appetizer. Comes back with the drinks in relatively small plastic glasses forgetting part of the order. Ok we'll have a large antipasto, pizza, meatball parmigiana etc, she's looking out the window while we are ordering, whoosh she's off.

Basket of garlic knots arrive WOW, Fresh, hot, covered on garlic & parm, nice! Can we get ... whoosh gone waiting, waiting, hello, wave, can I please get some ... deadpan look, sure. Great rolls. Waiting, waiting, waiting, drinks are empty, the place only has 4 other tables and 2 have their food. The Antipasto comes and it's magnificent. The presentation was as nice as we've ever scene, absolutely gorgeous. Meats, cheese like flowers on stems of cucumber & tomato & pepperoni, tasty giardinera and more ok we're jamming now. Um how about those drink refills?

Hello, drinks please? More small plastic glasses. Waiting, waiting an inisually long time for a slow restaurant. The entrees arrive, man it looks good. Whoose gone again. Well lets dig in! Yum! We love thin style crust. It looks sooo good. Hey wait a minute the pizza is soaking wet. I mean dripping an almost opaque thin liquid and everything just slides right off the wet dough when it's moved. Ok we're flexible, knife & forks work fine, dig in. Taste - none, bland, looks exchanged, what do you think? Everyone seems to be at a loss to be able to discribe it. The consensus is saltine cracker like without the salt, taste neutral, strange. The liquid is relatively flavorless and seems to wash out the other flavors. Lets go for some crushed red pepper. Where's the server? Waiting, waiting. How's the meatball sub it looks great? Kinda flavorless comes the response. Really it looks so good. Have a bite. Ok, wow that is strangely flavorless and the meatball doesn't have much of a meat flavor or texture it's kind of soft. Where's the server? One of us gets up to go and find her and she comes from the back side of a pillar towards the kitchen eyes focused on the kitchen door. Um hello, wave, lean, wave, hello wave, start to get up. Can we get some crushed red peppers? Red peppers arrive & no check back.

Ok I know this is a bit much to read thru all this but it's really how it happened from our point of view. Great knots, better than great antipasto, terrible pizza, boring meatball sub, barest of service what are you going to do? Well for us it's to not go back and to share the mediocre nature of our experience, sad.
