“Nice & easy”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

The good reviews for La Luna are well earned.
Don't get misled by the humble outside, a small old typical Belgian café with an Italian touch.
The food is great, well spiced and for a reasonable price.
It is not gastronomical, but an excellent choice of plain food: scampi, escalope, .. no pizza's.
The house wine is only 13 € en very nice.
A good place to eat & drink nice & easy.
One minor problem: a very very small toilet.

“Super delicious Italian food and hospitality”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

We heard a lot about this restaurant and yesterday we finally went there. It was one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever been to. There are only 2 people working there, the chef and the waiter. It's hard to describe, but they are SO friendly. We had to wait some time for the meals, but I don't think you can expect a faster service with only 2 people working there.

The meals were fantastic and surely a lot of bang for your buck.

The restaurant looks simplistic, but in my opinion it gives the restaurant a warm atmosphere.

Don't hesitate and try it out!

“Wow! this was quite a find”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Thanks to Trip Advisor I found this little restaurant which I would have never come across otherwise. It is a real gem and the Italian food is just fabulous. The Zabaglione was probably the best I have ever tasted.
From the outside you would hardly know it was a restaurant but inside it is warm and welcoming.
The service is friendly and welcoming and they will even lend you a blue parking disc if you haven't got one in your car. This is a restaurant I would not hesitate recommending and I will certainly go again very soon. Very reasonably priced and the house wine is excellent - charged by the centimeter consumed if you do not want a whole bottle (I wish more restaurants would do this).
The restaurant is quite small and not surprisingly it gets very busy so booking is definitely advised.

“Thanks again trip advisor!”
Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

I lived in Rome for 12 months and I will tell you this is pretty good for not being in Italy. Awesome chef and owner who come out and talk to you. The place is filled with locals. The owner will explain the menu and specials to you in English. Try the tiramisu and Irish coffee! Excellent value!
