  • "This is a very good place to eat food is great and good service only set back is that they do rush you a bit. We were there for an hour I know they want to turn the tables but that’s too fast and are reservation was at 8pm."

  • "I was told there was a special on the menu that could be served with whole wheat pasta. They brought me gluten-free pasta which tasted horrible and didn't even discount the plate from the Bill. Will not be going to this restaurant again."

  • "In a city the size of NY, choosing a restaurant can be overwhelming. I am always looking for a great total experience - great food, of course, but also ambience, service, and location. Luna Piena meets all of these for me! The food is truly amazing. Any of the pastas are a good choice (my favorite being the wild mushroom ravioli), as are the meat dishes (plenty of chicken, veal, and seafood choices). The wine list is not huge, but the restaurant maintains a great selection of wines by the glass and by the bottle. Other than the food the main reason I keep returning to Luna Piena is the impeccable service. The wait staff is charming, knowledgeable, and discreetly nearby. A trip to NYC will always include a dinner at Luna Piena for me!"

  • "My wife and I were in NY for an impromptu weekend getaway. We were able to get tickets for a show, then scoured Open Table for a good place to grab dinner, and with the zillion choices to review, it became very overwhelming. We contacted the concierge at the hotel, and he suggested Luna Piena. With that we checked it out on OT, liked the menu and reviews and took our chances. Glad we did! The service was fantastic, very attentive, and you could see this was a family run place. Our waitress was very informed on the menu items, and even offered to have something made for me that wasn't on the menu. The food was fresh, flavorful, and hands down, TOP NOTCH! Will definitely go again my next trip to NY and I highly recommend."

  • "This was my husband's and my first time at Luna Piena and we were so pleased to have found this gem. We had an early dinner before attending a local event. Menu selection was excellent and I opted for one of the specials which was pasta with bite size pieces of fillet mignon, mushrooms in a wine sauce. My husband chose the veal parmigian which was outstanding. Portions wwere plentiful. Also wanted to mention that we each started with a large bowl of vegetable soup which warmed us up on a cold winter eening. As it was my birthday, a delicious piece o tiramisu ended our meal. Attentive service was provided throughout the meal"

  • "For the last three years around the holidays, i have been taking my son's girlfriend for dinner here after we go for facials a block away at Mario Badescu. I love it. The pasta is delicious and I love the warm and cozy atmosphere .The workers are always friendly and there is just a general good vibe. My husband has been there a number of times for lunch as well and also really likes it."

  • "Stopped in on a cold Friday in December. Modest exterior with a warm, friendly ambience inside. This is clearly a family-run place, and everyone pitched in to provide impeccable service. Food is truly authentic and delicous: we had a Veal Chop Special and a Veal Milanese - both were excellent. Try the blood orange sorbet for dessert - delicious. And the prices - for New York - were very reaonable. Try this place - you won't be disappointed."

  • "The spinach stuffed ravioli was excellent with the homemade pasta being cooked just right and the fresh tomato sauce being awesome. We'll definitely plan to eat here again the next time we are in the city."

  • "An unexpected find: a relaxed neighborhood fine dining experience. If you don't like fussy, but you do appreciate well prepared and presented dishes with impeccable service, try Luna Piena. You will not be disappointed. The staff is deservedly proud of this restaurant. This was our first dinner there, but we will be back."

  • "Wanted a pasta-based dinner the night before NYC marathon, and the choice proved good, with nice food and quantities that definitely do not leave you in want of more carbs."
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "Given this was our pre-race NYC marathon dinner, we ate a basic spaghetti meal and didn't indulge in the wine or dessert but we would definitely go back. The food was very good and the service was excellent. Loved it!"

  • "The staff were all very nice and accommodating but the food was just ok. It wasn't bad but it was nothing special so I wouldn't eat there again."
