    Wow, what a find. We went for the Sunday Night Feast & it was just that. The meal started with fresh baked bread served with an oil & garlic dip. It was absolutely fantastic. For an appetizer we had caprese salad. The tomatoes were fresh & tasty. Our dinner was meatballs with ricotta cheese and the Sunday night feast. The pasta was cooked perfectly the meatballs, sausage & pork were slow simmered to enhance the taste of every component. We took at least half of the meal home so that we made room for dessert. Without a doubt this was THE BEST Tiramisu we have EVER had. Sorry Nana, Aunt Rose and Aunt Lucy but Casa De Angelo gave you a run for your money. You can be sure that we will become regulars at this authentic establishment.

    We enjoy Luna Rosa. Food is consistently good. Service is always good and friendly. My only caution is that while most entrees are $20- $30 the specials tend to run over $40. You need to ask the price as the waiters do not include in their description. They are worth the price, just don't be surprised if you don't ask.

    Dined on 8/1/2014
    It was a bit strange that an Italian restaurant had brown rice as the main side on 80% of menu. Pasta was available at a $6 extra charge... Found it to be unusual. Several customers around us also made note of that & actually complained to management. Restaurant has great location but probably will not visit again.

    Luna Rosa is a treasure. The managerial and wait staff are engaging, fully embracing the true meaning of service industry. The food is extremely good, with fresh seafood and produce properly prepared. To add to the experience, we sat on the patio with our Golden Retriever and enjoyed the live guitar and the breeze from the Atlantic.

    I have dined here many many times over the last 15 years and every time is memorable. One in our party had to return her dish because it was not what she expected and the Maitre d was so accommodating and nice that you would have thought that we asked to have another instead of a replacement. I will recommend this place for ever. I LOVE IT !!!!

    My daughter had just moved to Boca Raton and we were looking for a great place for dinner. Man, were we seriously NOT disappointed. We were seated promptly at an outside table with a view of the ocean. Server arrived promptly and was excellent throughout the entire meal. Present when needed but always at the right times. We started with the Arugula salad. Not sure where they get they arugula from but it was the best I had ever tasted. Then on to entrees. Three - Pasta with Vodka sauce, Mahi Francese style with an extra side of pasta and the real treat from my wife. She had the colossal shrimp stuffed with crabmeat. They were huge and she raved through every single bite. Tiramasu and excellent cheesecake to end. We loved it all.

    We took our Golden Retriever to Luna Rosa; the owner gave us a large outdoor table so the boy could stretch out. The food is quite good and the mostly Italian wine list is funky and fun. The broccoli rabe/Italian sausage appetizer is wonderful. It's hard to beat pasta and shellfish, both properly cooked. We can't wait to return.

    Their website links to open table but they don't honor the reservation you make. I had the South Pacific pancake special. They were dry and the fruit and pineapple syrup were uninspired in preparation and presentation. My companion had the French toast which was made from thin sliced challah bread and a bit dry as well. The restaurant is very popular but our selections were quite dull and rather mediocre.

    We were very disappointed. It took our waitress a very long time to come and ask what we would like to drink.the drinks took also very long to come. We ordered wine and club soda with cranberry juice. Nothing special. Again after a while they brought out the bread. Finally the waitress came and took our order. She was in a hurry. When our meals arrived two orders out of three were wrong. The bus boy changed one but we had to wait for the waitress to come and she insisted what she wrote is what was ordered. It was not. She was very dissmissive and walked away. This is not my first time at the restaurant and I was extremely embarrassed since it was my recommendation. We did tip her 20 0/0 but she did not deserve it.

    First time trying this restaurant, and not disappointed!! Brought wife here to celebrate her birthday - she loved it! Seated outside with nice view of the ocean. A little noisy street traffic, but worth it for the view and the ocean breeze. Food was very good, enjoyed a nice appetizer of fried calamari - done in a different way (with squash, zucchini and arugula) which we enjoyed very much. Entrees chosen: Rigatoni with Sunday meat "gravy" and special made pasta alla vodka with pancetta... excellent! Pistacchio gelato - homemade... terrific!! And nice friendly patrons as well... all in all, a great night. We will be trying the other great selections on the menu when we return. Thank you Gabriela for making it a great experience!

    I made a reservation to celebrate my birthday and my expectations were high (from reading the reviews online) and I am sorry to say I did not enjoy my night. The server did not introduce himself and left us waiting for a long time before he came to ask what we wanted to drink. Even though he had to pass right by us it was hard to get his attention to order the food. I really wanted to like this place, but I did not happen. We were left unattended for the majority of the night, the food was good, not different from a chain restaurant, just more expensive. One a positive note the server took the calamari off the tab because we could not eat because it was extremely salty.

    Cafe Luna Rosa never fails. We have not been there for dinner in quite some time and it was a real treat. Our meals were outstanding and the service was even better! Long term employees have an ownership interest in the restaurant and it surely shows in the service from the bus boys, runners and waiters. Can't wait to go back.

    Food was quite delicious, however the host was not welcoming and the waiter was pushy. He described the "specials" and made a recommendation, however, we had selected other entrees instead. He relentlessly stated that the special was "way better." I asked him if it was more expensive and he answered sarcastically, "Well of course it's more expensive!". Description on line said "panoramic view of the Atlantic. Not quite!

    We took our vibrant 91 yo uncle for his birthday on June 14th. He ordered a $130 bottle of wine. When I asked if they do anything for a birthday, our waitress said yes. I asked that it just not be chocolate, as he doesn't like chocolate. She asked him if cheese cake would be ok and he said yes. She brought the cheese cakeand then the bill. They charged $10 for the cheesecake!! I told her and she said "yes, that's right!" I wish I had time to say "the why didn't you give us the menu to chose what we wanted to spend $10 on!? One would think that with a $130 bottle of wine purchased for a 91st birthday they might have comped a piece of cake!!2 strikes! But of course they have location! We just won't be back. Too bad, food was good.

    We enjoyed declicious taglitelle bolognese and the garlic olive oil spread got the bread was a nice touch. Outdoor seating was great. Problem was service. Our waiter wouldn't help us pick a glass of wine unless we were interested in the most expensive wine on the menu and just walked away. We had to beg to get pamesean cheese on our pasta. Coffee showed up at table we didn't order. It was not a busy night. While food showed up quickly waitstaff seemed to not really care .
