    At Luna Blu you will be bumping elbows with your fellow patrons. Menu has a good selection of dishes to fit any palate. A bit of a tight fit inside the restaurant but understandable considering the limited real estate. Very fine dining that won't break the bank. Great for a first date.

    This restaurant is a gem in downtown Tiburon. It is on the water with great views and the food is terrific. Service is excellent and the staff couldnt be nicer or more professional. It is definitely one of the best (if not the best) restaurant in Marin.

    My bride had four days of grandma duty with our 3.5 yr old DGD and I asked where can I take you to dinner... "Luna Blu!". We had a new server, Korinna, who was super. She recommended a Terradora Falanghina a crisp white from Campania with her Frisee salad, and bold enough to hold up to Ravioli di Salsiccia and sauteed spinach with garlic side. I had a loose leaf jasmine green tea with my gauazzetto (mussells in a SPICY light red sauce.. mmmm!), my Poletto al Limone (Cornish Hen) main and Brussells sprouts side.

    Luna Blu is a welcome, refreshing addition to the Tiburon food scene. My wife and I had lunch there recently. Interior is stylish and welcoming, but the gem is the deck. They have covered it with an awning which still allows for beautiful views of San Francisco yet now offers welcome relief from the bright sun. We sat out there and watched the folks on the deck at Sam's bake in the sun and battle with the seagulls. Crystal, who is co-owner with her chef husband, stopped by our table for a friendly chat. Oh, and the food? We both had a generous, delicious crab salad and a delightful glass of sauvignon blanc. Well done, Luna Blu.

    The best thing about this restaurant is the atmosphere and the view, especially if you have a table near the water. It's a cozy place that seems devoid of tourists. The food is generally good although not perfect. The "crab cake" was actually 1/4 " of crab over 1/2" of mashed potatoes. Not exactly what we ordered. The most annoying thing was the waiter coming over several times while we were having a pre-dinner drink to ask if we were ready. Finally when we told him we were still not ready and not in a hurry, he said: well, I have to check to see when the next reservation is for this table. Meanwhile there were several empty tables around, which is not even the point. This is kind of a fast food approach which we did not appreciate.

    It's nice to find a good Italian place that is intimate enough that the chef comes out and greets the diners. It's even better when the whole experience leaves you satisfied but not stuffed. Quantities and pricing felt just right. Simple favorites like eggplant parmigiana came out just right. Don't miss the triple espresso martini!

    Went to Luna Blue for our 10th wedding anniversary and really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere . We had a table right on the water and was clear enough to see the city. Eggplant Parmesan was excellent and so was the calamari and zucchini appetizer . We also ordered the Dungeness crab pasta which was good but a little bland for our taste. Overall it was a great experience.

    Recently were looking for a restaurant in Tiburon for a late lunch with relatives from Florida. Decided to try Luna Blu since there was a nice table on the deck overlooking the Bay and the serve staff at the door were welcoming. But the real surprise was the food which was creatively prepared with fresh ingredients and tastefully served. The prices were reasonable and the service excellent. We also got a chance to chat with Renzo, the owner/chef, who was warm, entertaining, and very Italian. We actually returned to Luna Blu that same week for dinner and again were very pleased. We highly recommend Luna Blu, it is among the best Italian restaurants we have tried including restaurants in Italy and Michelin starred establishments.

    Luna Blu is EXACTLY the type of restaurant Tiburon needed - amazing food, a great food, and a good crowd that isn't full of drunken frat boys like Sam's always is. I always have an amazing meal there - breakfast, lunch, dinner whatever it is, Luna Blu never ceases to blow me away! Can't wait to go back again :)

    Nice casually or dressed-up place with good food. Seafood was fresh. Seating is a bit close at places. Had a loud-laughing-talking young lady bellowing throughout the deck that was very disruptive to other conversations. Wish there would've been a way to remove her.

    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.

    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.

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.

    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.

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.
