Diner Reviews
  • "Before this visit, we were very impressed with the food. This time, we wondered if the chef had changed. The risoto was far inferior to the risoto we had the last time. Other dishes were equally not up to snuff."

  • "we looked at so many restaurants and decided from reviews that we would try Luna Blu. So glad we did, it was wonderful in every way.If in Annapolis don't miss it. Say Hi to Erin.."

  • "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!"

  • "Food and service were very good - only complaint was the parking - Restaurant needs to update their web site as they no longer validate parking at the garage."

  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "A small venue in Annapolis definitely worth a visit. Very nice selection of dishes and wines. They have a 4 course meal that includes choices from their apps, entrees and desserts. The only course for which you don't have a choice is the salad. Definitely a nice option. Service was great. Will return when we're in the area."

  • "We love this place. We dine at Luna Blu prior to a performance at Rams Head. Met friends this time, they loved it too."

  • "seating was quick and easy even though we were late for our reservation. server (only one working that evening) was incredibly pleasant and helpful (above and beyond the current norm) food was yummy (especially the house made rolls!), food was prepared/served incredibly fast and piping hot. definitely a great experience. absolute only thing that i would have changed is that i was very chilly in the dining area- bring a sweater"

  • "Our experience at Luna Blu was mixed. We ordered the bruchetta appetizer that was excellent - very flavorful. I ordered the fettuccine with vegetables and added sweet sausage: the proportion of noodles to veggies was a little too high. also, the "creamy wine sauce" was very thin and had little flavor. My spouse ordered the chicken scallopini: the marinara sauce had an excellent flavor, though she had requested the other sauce. the chicken itself was rather bland, so the sauce was essential. Although we dined somewhat early (5:45pm) we found the limited outdoor seating space clashing with the sidewalk traffic - unfortunate."

  • "Dinner was excellent as always....the desserts are homemade and outstanding. My guests thought the Tiramisu was the best they had ever tasted. We went for a family birthday celebration. Perfect intimate atmosphere for such an event."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "This was our second time eating at the restaurant. The first time was much better. The service was great and the wine was fantastic, but the food was very bland. I ordered the same dish and this time it had no flavor. Very disappointed."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "My girlfriend and I have been to Luna Blu a few times now and have never been let down. The food is excellent, the location is great, and the atmosphere is perfect. Each time we've dined, we would arrive a little early and our table was ready...only once have we not gotten the window seat. The restaurant has a small, intimate feel to it...great for a date night. This is definitely a favorite of ours."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "We ate at one of the two outside tables on a busy Sunday night. Fun to watch the pedestrian traffic! Varied menu with lots of choices! Didn't have their 4 course $35 special, but surely appears to be a bargain! Food was delicious, and very reasonable. Our waitress, Bernadette, was energetic, helpful, and on target! We'll definitely be back. "

  • "Although I understand why they would give us only one piece of bread per diner, they should at least put the bread in a smaller sized basket. We were wondering if there was bread in the basket at all when the waitress brought the basket to our table. After searching, we finally found the 2 lonely pieces all swaddled in a napkin."

  • "Annapolis has very few good restaurants and it is even harder to find them in the central business district. We walked in the door and they had our table waiting with menus......right in the window....best table in the restaurant. The food at Luna Blu had a nice flavor and was proportionate... so after bread, salad, dinner, and a dessert we were full but not uncomfortable. The prices were expected for an Italian restaurant in downtown Annapolis. The martinis are good, but strong---one will do you. Our server was great and polite. The only negative I have was that our dinner took a little long to come out, but it was Saturday night with a full restaurant and I was half way through my martini and did not care. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Luna Blu was a great find for two people with a gluten allergy. While they only have one gluten free pasta, you can have pretty much anything with either asparagus or spinach as the base with the meats, chicken and seafood. Everything is made fresh to order. Yum Yum Yum"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We ate at Luna Blu for Mother's Day. We had a nice time and while this was not necessarily a kid friendly restaurant, our boys were well- cared for. We all enjoyed our food which was excellent. Nice relaxing time was had by all. Would definitely come back!!"

  • "The food and service in this restaurant is outstanding. A repeat customer, keep coming back, no other place around measures up. Always new and interesting specials to try that will be memorable. "

  • "Dined here for my birthday. My daughter and I chose their 4-course meal for $35. Tremendous value with no restrictions on your choice of appetizer, entree or dessert. House salad was the only thing that you could not change. Portions were generous, food was outstanding. Will definitely return."

  • "Was there with 11 other people on Christmas Eve & half of us were disappointed. It's hard on a holiday so decided to give it another try. My meal was extremely bland. The pasta was over cooked & very soupy. I paid to have dinner "over asparagus" all I got were a few pieces of chopped up asparagus. I can prepare a tastier meal at home. Very pleasant & attentive server. "

  • "My husband and I decided at the last minute to dine here before a concert in town. This restaurant is small but quaint. They offer several specials each day, as well as a four course special daily ($35) which includes your choice of any appetizer or soup, house salad, choice of entree AND dessert. The waitress was very accommodating and attentive. The food was outstanding and plentiful. We will definitely choose this place again!!!"

  • "Excellent food, service and ambiance. We are repeat customers and every visit has been excellent."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "Food was mediocre at best. Menu is not particularly interesting, pasta was overcooked, the tomatoes in the caprese appetizer were not ripe, and the pasta sauces were poorly seasoned and watery. Server was not familiar with any of their wines. "
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "We had a nice dinner here before a show at Rams Head across the street. A group of 4 ladies we had seen on their website that appetizers were 1/2 price the night we went. So we chose to order 7 appetizers for dinner and share them. It was a great idea and the food was very nice. But we were in a hurry to get to the show and didn't check the bill well. We were charged full price for the appetizers instead of 1/2 price. We are currently trying to get a refund from the restaurant. We even asked the waiter and he confirmed that they were 1/2 price that night. We'll wait and see how the management handles this issue before deciding if we will return in the future. "

  • "This is our favorite spot for higher-quality Italian fare in the Annapolis area. Wonderful and varied selections including a changing mix of specials and an extensive wine list means there's something for everyone. Located in a very active evening hot spot zone close to the colonial downtown can't be beat....and isn't!"
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "We love Luna Blu; it has become our go to place. It's always consistently good. We all had seafood on this night and it was all delicious. I enjoyed my favorite, seafood fra diavolo over spinach! Yum. My husband tried the scampi over linguini and loved it. Our friend from out of town ordered the special, swordfish over risotto. He almost licked his plate! We enjoyed a gorgeous Brunello with our dinners. It all made for a wonderful Monday night."
    Dined on 4/21/2014
  • "Just spent a nice Friday night at Luna Blu. The menu is thoughtfully-chosen and varied, with a variety of antipasti. The salads are fresh and vibrant (I enjoyed the Greek salad), my family liked their Caesar salads. We each got different pasta dishes and they were deliciously rich. Luna Blu has a nice wine list and a good selection of wines by the glass. While we did not get dessert, we saw several diners enjoying theirs. Overall, the portions were just right. Their bread was warm and delicious and the accompanying olive oil the perfect combination. Service was attentive and prompt. Thank you for a wonderful night!"

  • "The carbonara is a special treat - go for that alone and be oh-so-pleased with everything else. "
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "Very good food with great service. The pasta/mushroom special was fantastic! If you like spicy food, the aribiata is for you. It was actually too spicy for my taste and I like hot sauce. Portion sizes are enough to fill you up - you won't leave feeling hungry. Wide selection of wines to choose from. Everyone we have had has been very good. Excellent restaurant that we will definitely return to."
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "We are local and decided to give Luna Blu a try with out of town guests---big mistake. It is not authentic Italian, the space is cramped and not attractive, the staff was nice but not attentive, and the food was average to poor (such as over cooked fish and low quality/tough veal. We will not return."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Terrible bread. How can an Italian restaurant not have good Italian bread? At least they have an expresso machine, and the expresso was good."

  • "My wife and I love dining at Luna Blu whenever we're in Annapolis. Luna Blu is located on West Street just across the street from the Rams Head Tavern, a fabulous venue for musicians and groups from all categories of music. The penne a la vodka is my personal favorite at Luna Blu although the menu is wide-ranging and offers lots of delicious possibilities. If you have the time, I highly recommend their 4 course dinner. To put it simply, Luna Blu's 4 course dinner is the best bargain in Annapolis (at least in the historic area). The service at Luna Blu is always top notch and the desserts wonderful (and they get you out in plenty of time to attend your concert at the Rams Head!)."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "The four course special is a nice deal. Very flexible. I don't think there are any restrictions on the entree you can choose. I tried the rockfish and it was just ok, but the rest was very good. I recommend the baked brie appetizer. Service was very good."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Food is fine. Can't say I would go out of my way to go here unless I was going to Rams Head later. My husband and I had fish dishes and they both were over done. Wait staff slow. We have so many choices in Annapolis with great food. They could step it up a bit."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Great dinner and all our meals were excellent! The seating is limited so a reservation is important. A very XL group arrived and that did make it nearly impossible to talk which was the main reason I was at dinner that evening. Our server was excellent with one small note - when I said my iced tea didn't taste right and could I please get a coke instead she then questioned me a little too long on why. Just get what is requested. I said it didn't taste right and that should have been the end of the conversation. She was almost arguing with me. That was very MINOR - really - but having worked in 5 star hotels for a decade I appreciate a good response from a customer complaint and this wasn't quite up to par."
