“another great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

Yet another great meal in this fabulous restaurant. Wonderful atmosphere, wonderful hospitality, fabulous food and all set in one of Italy's most beautiful hilltop villages. The rack of lamb, the fillet steak, the duck and much more - all highly inventive takes on regular favourites and ALWAYS delicious. A great chef working with the highest quality ingredients. Front of house is welcoming and efficient. Not expensive when you consider the high standard. We'll be back!!!!

“Excellent for a special occasion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

We first came to Erba Luna in 2009 and were impressed with the location, architecture and food quality. This year our stay in Montone coincided with our anniversary so we decided to eat here. The owners responded very quickly to an email booking request before we left UK
Although the outside dining is very pleasant, we prefer the fantastic feel of the inside with its vaulted brick ceilings, discreet music and tasteful decoration. The food quality and service remain excellent- I love their pistachio crusted lamb cutlets which have a wonderful taste and fantastic presentation. Antipasti and deserts are equally good. One slight disappointment is that in our years of coming here, the menu hasn't changed, but for those on a first visit to Montone this won't be an issue.

“Great service, wonderful Umbrian fare, wonderful setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

This is Umbrian fare at its best. We stopped here for an unplanned lunch on a day trip to Montone. We had done the same last year only to find the restaurant full. This time it was empty. I guess we hit on a fiesta last year. The restaurant is located at the top of the village, just outside the medieval walls. Tables are available inside and outside. The welcoming staff server (Edyta?) escorted us to a nice table inside - linen table cloths and napkins, cool, and tastefully decorated. Our party of four opted for a carafe of the vino rosso della casa, which was very good. We ordered a couple of plates of mixed antipasti and then followed with some homemade pasta. The antipasti was wonderfully fresh and included a tasty fig paste and a fairly wide variety of meats. Two of us chose primi from the pranzo menu and two from the carta. Those who chose from the carte got a slightly better deal. The homemade ravioli stuffed with salmone and drizzled with lemon oil was superb, as was the tagliatelli with porcini. The gnocchi from the pranzo menu was also good but reports on the ravioli stuffed with ricotta and spinaci were less enthusiastic. All of this was topped off with some really good espressi. Will we return? Absolutely - either for lunch or dinner. We agree with all the other favourable reports - and Montone is a lovely little village to visit.

“Great food and beautiful restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

The restaurant catered for a group of approximately 50 people for a pre wedding evening meal.

Food was great, with all guest satisfied. I'd like to go back with a smaller group to enjoy a more intimate dinner.

Definitely worth a visit when in Montone.

“Wonderful restaurant superb setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

We just had a wonderful lunch at Erba Luna at the top of Montone. Extremely friendly service, excellent food. Try the tuna tartare, gamberi salad, and risotto with asparagus and fresh black truffle. Excellent wine list as well. Perfect summer lunchtime destination!!
