“Outstanding as usual”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

Simply great service from owner Daniele who has a great passion for food and wine. If your looking for fine Italian food in a relaxed atmosphere La Luna is the place to go. Danieli has a huge knowledge of Italian wines and is as happy to talk you through the house red as he is the more expensive bottles. We are regulars but had an excellent meal there last night so thought it was time I write it up!

“Little Italy in Surrey.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

We have very few good Italian restaurants outside London (in Surrey, Hants and Sussex), but this is one of them...and i mean Italian, not your silly chain pizza piazza's etc....

Great service from the moment you walk in and are welcomed at the door by an entourage of Italian gentlemen....it's as if they know you well....Well i dont think i knew them! The service remained great throughout.

A good selection of many italian wines, right up to th good barolo's and barbera's....

Starters were excellent - the focaccia with rosemary balsamic, the zucchine and the risotto balls were lovely with the other relishes etc with it. One of our pasta dishes was a little bland, they left out the chilli.....but this was reduced from bill without us even batting an eye lid....my monkfish was superb, desserts to die for - orange tart with clotted cream and berries and chcolate fondant. Super viognier from Sicily of course!...
Will be returning as soon as possible.....

“It's a delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

I'm not sure where Tellitasitwas was on the night he has talked about, but it doesn't sound anything like the La Luna we have always known and loved. Interesting also that another member of his party seems to describe something completely different! We used to go to Cambio in Guildford very often when it was at it's original location in Chapel Street, but when it moved into Castle Street some years ago it became substantially different and we searched for somewhere else. We found La Luna quite quickly and it became a firm favourite. We are often in London and eat in good restaurants there, and La Luna compares very well without the top notch prices. A very warm welcome, always excellent service and fantastic food and wine - regardless of how busy they are. What more could you want? Staff are always professional and friendly and will do everything they can for you. You'll find it hard to beat.

“Lovely, varied Italian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

The menu was imaginative with plenty of variety. My husband and I shared three different rustic antipasti choices, a pasta dish, secondi and desert. The portions in isolation are small (except the secondi which we thought generous) but if you like and expect to have the traditional four course Italian meal, then the sizes are exactly right. The wine menu was fantastic, full of so many Italian choices but some were quite expensive - our only criticism of the place. We left pleasantly full and in no way stuffed which I think is a sign of well-designed menu and great cooking. Service was attentive but not intrusive and the atmosphere really got going about 9pm. Highly recommended

“best italian around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

this is by far my most favorite Italian restaurant around. The food is spectacular and the service is fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble, and the whole ambience is brill. The pasta dishes are fresh and vibrant, always with a slight twist. for a special evening go no further. I love it.
