As usual we had a great meal
As usual we had a great meal here. The pasta with seafood was cooked to perfection. The pasta was al dente and the seafood fresh and cooked perfectly. The staff was professional, friendly, and attentive. This is the reason we return here time after time.

Very good food at a fair price
for that part of town the prices were good, especially for the quailty meal. Best mozzerella i've had. Only drawback, although they were not crowded in the least, really rushed us through. we went early , maybe they thought we were in a hurry.

Lovely ambiance and excellent service. We had a lunch meeting here and we were able to hear each other while we enjoyed excellent food. We ordered the following dishes: Pasta Integrali alla Sorentina (baked whole wheat pasta w/ mixed veggies & mozzarella); Guazzetto di Pesce alla Barese (mixed seafood stew in a tomato sauce, served w/ garlic bread); and Gnocchi di Patate (Homemade potato dumpling w/ bresaola & radicchio in a pink sauce). All the dishes were excellent. Luna Piena has become one of my favorite restaurants!

Comfy delightful Italian
It is not a suit and tie restaurant. If you want to talk with old friends, you may invite them to the place like this restaurant.

Great Food And Great Service
Not knowing much about Luna Piena, we booked dinner for a dinner meeting and were truly impressed by the wine, the fantastic food selection and especially the service. We were completely looked after and everything, from the bread to the dessert, was extremely good, far above average. Highly recommended.

First the service in this restaurant was excellent. Everyone was very attentive. Presentation of food was very good and the food itself was very good. A little on the "rich" side so I couldn't finish my meal but the gravy was very good. It wasn't very crowded but it is not a large place so I could imagine if it was busier that it could be a little too "crowded" for my taste. I certainly would go back.

Authentic, Classic, Nice Find
We took a chance and were nicely surprised. We sat at an outside table and the weather was perfect. Everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable (and Italian!). The service was very nice and not rushed. We started with a prosecco and the chef's special antipasta which was quite nice and more than enough for two. There was a very long list of specials and it was hard to remember all of them, but our server was very gracious about repeating any items I wanted a refresher on! They have a nice selection of wines and after dinner beverages. We passed on desert, just not that hungry, but had a nice espresso to wrap up the meal. Definitely try this place if you want some good Italian food in an authentic setting.

Great marathon pre-race dinner
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!

Mid-town Neighborhood Gem
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.

Great Authentic Italian
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.
