  • Great local restaurant

    Really nice place to have a relaxing meal. Our waiter was very attentive, , the food delicious. The only reason not to give it 5 stars was due to a very miserable waiter with a bad attitude. Our waiter was great, tall italian with a permanent smile. However, when it came to pay, the guy who took the bill appeared to be very unhappy and should not be working at a restaurant! Overall, a great place to go.

    Pasta
    Dined on 9/21/2014
    I just had brunch at Luna Blue in Tiburon with my wife and I was pleased to see their pasta menu is available all day long, also for brunch. I had seafood before at this restaurant and it was excellent, but i heard that the pasta is made from scratch in house every day so i had to try. I t was delicious, especially the filled pasta , ravioli and tortellini were my favor. I asked the host and the waiter to help me pick their best dish of fresh pasta and it was a real good treat for me, a pasta obsess fanatic. Now i need to go back for dessert, i was too full today to even get close to for the special dessert.

    This restaurant is so authentic, I felt I was in Europe. Their signature cocktail Luna Blu passion started the night off perfectly. Every single dish we ordered was presented beautifully and tasted delicious. We were lucky enough to meet the owner/executive chef Renzo who was very friendly and gave us suggestions for our next vacation to Italy. We can't wait to come back and enjoy another memorable evening with thoughtfully prepared food and drinks.

    Luna Blu is the best Italian restaurant in Marin. The food is always outstanding, the servers very attentive, and the chef, and his wife, are an absolute delight. They make you feel like you are guests in their home. This is the closest we have come to finding Italian food that makes us feel like we are in Italy. The pastas are superb and the menu changes enough to get something new every time we go there.

    This was our second visit to Luna Blu. The food and service were again excellent and where we sat was very comfortable. On this occasion there was a minor heating problem which is why we rated the ambiance at 4 stars rather than 5. We plan to go again soon.

    My wife and I have been to Luna Blu twice now within the past 4 months. Both times we have had great food and service. My wife who is of Italian decent thinks the linguini vongole is the best she has had. Crystal,who runs the front of the house is so friendly. And just hearing her speak with her British accent is a treat. The interior is small but comfortable. There is also outdoor dining on the rear deck,with views of the bay and San Francisco.

    Frissel Salad mined goodies like pinenuts, Heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, dressing soaked crisp bread cubes, mozzarella cheese marinated in the light balsamic herb infused dressing, Marinated sirloin of lamb, medium rare and perfectly done, fresh light sauteed spinach, perfect al dente pasta dish with wild mushrooms and rock shrimp, garlic wine sauce. We would have tried for dessert, but as tempting as the dessert menu was, we were sated. Warm friendly service, from the couple who were owners (hostess and chef) who greet you and check up on your dining pleasure, to a waiter with a delightful sense of humor. I told my husband I had to write a review, and the woman at the next table urged me to tell folks the mussel dish was delicious!

    The food tasted like it was pre-prepared and then heated up. I would describe it as mediocre, at best. The service was hurried. Even though the restaurant was not full, they treated us like they couldn't wait for us to leave. We paid the bill and then went to another venue for coffee. I would definitely not recommend the restaurant, and will not be eating there again.

    This is our favorite restaurant in Marin. The food is always consistent and always very good. Renzo and Crystal are doing a fantastic job in becoming the best Italian place to dine in Marin. The only complaint is that our server was terrible - never saw him before - and he won't last long. We brought a very nice, expensive bottle of wine with us and he said that they had much better wines on their wine list, which was a direct insult to us. We will go back because we love Renzo's food, but won't have that waiter again. A waiter like that is definitely not good for business. Hopefully, Crystal can solve his problem so it won't hurt business.

    Reception and wait staff not good. The window table was vacant when we walked in and we asked for it. Were told it was reserved for party of 4. Minutes later a couple comes in and want same table and they are given it. When we inquired, hostess told us that the couple changed their mind and went from 4 to 2. The waiter was very rushed as a matter of style, not necessity. He also was very familiar and was being too "cool" and cavalier with diners. We will not return as there are other good choices.

We couldn't sit outside due to a party but after they left, we were seated outside for our dessert. Good choice for a nice dinner, especially outside!
