    The dining room is very small but quaint. When you are 6' tall with long legs you have to make concessions from time to time. This time it was well worth sitting "side saddle" as I ate a magnificent meal. I commend this restaurant for somehow presenting a memorable meal for such a frugal price. The four course deal for $35 can't be beat anywhere that I have been in this area. The pan-seared Scallops served over delicious polenta, with red pepper puree, AMAZING! Then the Greek salad is everything a Greek salad should be, AMAZING! The entree was the Seafood Fra Diavola, one of the best Italian dishes I have ever eaten, AMAZING! The dessert, Strudel de Mele, words can't express. Therefore, AMAZING! I will be going back to Luna Blu!

    Went for my birthday celebration with friends. Had reservations for 5pm, was a little worried when we got there and the place was empty... then found out they had just opened for dinner. As the night went it got full and people were actually waiting inline for a table. Food was great as well as their drinks... chocolate martini was awesome, you get a lot of food for the price.

    This small restaurant is not near the waterfront and since we were in a boat we had to take a taxi from the pier. The waitress was lovely and very attentive. However, the food was mediocre at best. The shrimp neapolitana appetizer was almost inedible; the sauce was filled with huge capers and olives and was wayyyy too salty. The portions were large and the selection plentiful.

    When making my reservation on Open Table, I requested that we have very nice seating....to my delight the folks welcomed us by name as soon as we walked in and then took us to the best seat in the house....we felt like VIP! Luna Blu offers appetizers half off every Thursday....some members of our party made their meal from ordering several appetizers and the waitstaff was so good with that choice. Service and food was excellent...we love going there as it is small with a quiet atmosphere and friendly service.

    Had a late reservation - a number of larger groups had come in that night most before us. An earlier group had not cleared out as expected - and so our table was not ready - that's ok and not the fault of the establishment but even after they had gone it took another 15 - 20 minutes to get us seated. And really only after I had to ask again. Food wasn't that good for what seemed like a summer at the beach type experience. They chose I think because they knew the service was lousy to add a tip to the check without telling us until they delivered the bill. Nothing special about the food. They got one of our orders wrong and had an overall Italian quality not quite as good as Carrabas - enough said.

    Service was nice. Food quality was somewhat uneven. Risotto special was quite good, as were fried green tomatoes and escargot. Chicken with marinara was dry (overcooked) and lacked flavor. Desserts were fabulous!

    This isn't a very big restaurant and it has a tall ceiling so you could hear most people's conversations. The blue all over the walls and ceilings was too much and made the room feel cold. The food was good but not great. Service was very good. We went on a Friday night and it wasn't very busy.

    My parents and friends were in town and thought we would take them here since we had such agreat experience last spring. The waitress was bossy (referred to everything as her own [e.g. all my seafood is fresh, I just put that on the menu, etc.]) & stern, the place was freezing, and the food was bland. One of the people in our party mentioned Olive Garden as superior....embarrassing. Very amazed at the differences in our experience. There are a million Italian restaurants to choose from and we won't be back.

    Luna Blu is a stylish take on Fine Italian cuisine. I had the seafood scampi and it was great. The flavors were superb and the ambiance was great for meeting friends. I had my teenage kids with me and they both loved the food as well. The restaurant had a decent selection of wines, beers were limited to Italian beers and a token bud light. Vibrant scene. Lots of people around since it's close to many west street bars.

    This was my 2nd time at Luna Blu. It is an amazing place. By far the best restaurant in the area. I did the 4 course $35 dinner, a great deal! You pick any App. get the house salad. Any Entree and any dessert. Sounds kinda iffy right? Well its not. Our server who I believe is also the owner Erin was very nice and such a charm. I highly recommend the Fried green tomatoes, Crab Bruschetta, The salmon with the crab, cream sauce, spinach, and Scallops. For dessert the Tiramissu was divine along with the apple pastry and egg custard w/ strawberries. The last time I had the chocolate mousse and it was absolutely amazing! I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to enjoy some good food and great drinks. Also the best Amaretto Sour ever!

    My husband and I went to Luna Blu for his birthday dinner celebration. Our waitress was great and very attentive. The food was borught out in a decent amount of timw, and everything was delicious! We ordered their special which is a four course meal from their entire menu for $35. We ordered the scallops with polenta, which had a beautiful sear and caramelization on them, the antipasta platter, arugula salad, watermelon salad(their special for the evening which was amazing), Sea bass that had marinated tomatoes and bufala mozzerella, and salmon with alfredo, crab, and scallops over spinach(amazing). For dessert we got the apple strudel, and house specialty zabaglione. Strudel was buttery and flaky, and the custard was light and favorful.

    Went to Luna Blu for a second time since our first was such a wonderful visit and wished we never took the ride. The night we went in was not crowded, in fact we were the only people in the restaurant for a while. Though the service was INCREDIBLE (Brian was one of the best servers I have ever had) the food was inedible. My dish was so spicy that I could not even stomach it and I LOVE spicy food. I think that we had the D Team in the kitchen though, everything we ordered was terrible. Not going to return.

    We were lucky to have John has our server and he was attentive and responsive. Our meals consisted of the $35 special where they practically bring the entire restaurant to you. I had fried green tomatoes that were crispy with a great sauce. A Greek salad and the Seafood Fra Diavola which is always terrific. Consists of a spicy marinara with loads of seafood. The desert was Zabaglione that is always wonderful here. A great price for a wonderful meal and evening this is always the case when I go to Luna Blue.

    A small restaurant with great Italian food. The location is right across the street from Ram's Head, so it is a nice place to have a leisurely dinner before the show. The service was a little slow, but we were not in a rush and enjoyed being able to take our time with our meal. The Penne dish with crab, shrimp and creamy tomato sauce was wonderful!! They also offered a very nice Price Fix menu which included choice of appetizer, salad, choice of entree and dessert for $35...great deal! We will definitely go back!

    We've heard good things about Luna Blu and they're tru (spelling intentional)! We had the 4-course dinner for $35, which was simply more than we could eat. Nice location with a couple of outside tables (we chose to eat indoors since it was our anniversary dinner). The atmosphere would support anything from a quick dinner in shorts and flip-flops to a romantic interlude. We'll be back!
