Nice restaurant & fun cave tour
The restaurant was very nice with good food. We sat outdoors; it was noisy but pleasant. The memorable part was the cave tour which was fun, romantic, historic, and a slightly spooky. Our child really enjoyed the tour.

Awesome staff..friendly, good food and decent prices. We had a great time there!
The atmosphere is very European and beautiful. Make sure to peek in at the wine caves adjacent to the restaurant!

Once again, the food was excellent.
Once again, the food was excellent. Had reservations but it took 3 hostesses to seat us and we waited about 10 minutes for our waitress to find us. Small mishap and overall, the meal was a wonderful experience in which I would recommend others to enjoy.

The food and service was excellent
The food and service was excellent at Luna Rossa. The server even showed us where the caves were and told us about the cave tours that are held. Everyone was polite and attendant, and the food was wonderful.

A fine evening at Rossa
The service was excellent. We ran a little late for our reservation, but they quickly got a table cleared for us. The food was also excellent. We got good advice for our waitress on what wine would go best with our food, since my girlfriend and I don't know that much about wine. The rest of the staff were very courteous and friendly also. There were a couple larger groups of people that were a little noisy, but we could still hear each other fairly well without having to raise our voices much. Making reservations online also had a link to order flowers that can be delivered to the restaurant, which was a huge plus for me.

Great Service Despite Surprise Wait
My girlfriend and I had a Groupon for Luna Rossa that required a reservation. Upon arriving with a reservation, we were told it would be a 10-minute wait due to prom. After 15 minutes and still not being seated, a manager walked by and asked if we had been helped yet. We explained that we had made a reservation but were still waiting, to which she responded by offering us a complimentary beer or wine while we waited. She even went into the bar area and found us a small table so we could be more comfortable until our table was ready - which was only another 5 minutes. Once we were seated, the service was outstanding and quick, and the food was fresh and tasty.

Luna Rossa- a great place for dinne
Stopped by on a Tuesday night. It was not too crowded, thus to my friend and my benefit. The food was fantastic! I had the best tasting salmon with steamed veggies, while my friend tried the seafood ravioli. Both meals were excellent! Highly recommend to all.

After reading reviews ranging from loved it to never again we were unsure what to expect. Happily our experience was unreservedly positive. The place is very busy and staff may have some challenges there is a large event, but the wait for service and for the food was no longer than might be experienced in any busy place on a weekend. Appetizer was delicious, hot and served quickly. Server recommended a large house salad could be made "Caesar style" (romaine and caesar dressing) rather than having to order three side Caesars; we experoenced no problems with being a party of three or with our desire to order and share anumber of menu items family-style. Instead, plates and extra cutlery were cheerfully provided. We will return.

Another wonderful meal at Luna Ross
My wife and I wanted to take our daughter some place special to celebrate her college graduation. My first thought was Luna Rossa, because I love it there. The food was delicious and the service was prompt and very friendly. The duo playing music was not too loud and played music that I personally love. The three of us had a very pleasent evening. Thank you again Luna Rossa!

Good food and excellent value
Luna Rosa is in the heart of downtown Stillwater so you are right in the middle of tons of fun shops and a block walk to the river. Parking is available on street and also down about a block there is a city lot. My husband and daughter had the Fettuccini and I had the cannelloni. Both were good although my husband would have liked larger shrimp in his dish. I told him the dish would be priced much higher for large shrimp. The restaurant is very nicely decorated and would be great for a romantic dinner but also was great for my 11 year old daughter. We were there on a Friday evening around 6 and there was live music playing in the background which was an added bonus!

Great variety, great price
We had a wonderful dinner. I was impressed with the large selection on the menu and the food was wonderful. I also thought the price was great considering not only how good the food was, but how much food we received. We all brought food home with us. We will be going back again for sure!

Food was good, had the steak
Food was good, had the steak with a very favorful topping. Wife loved the wine and pasta. Daughter liked her pasta as well. We sat outside and there must have been a car show that night. Many old cars and motorcycles driving by. Made for interesting conversation. Waitress was energetic and friendly. Would certainly go back.

Good Date Night
We went here for a last minute date and had a great time. I had a fantastic wine, and the food was very flavorful. I have dietary restrictions and the waitress and chef had no problems at all accommodating me. We sat outside because the weather was beautiful, and just had a chance to look around and enjoy Stillwater.

Nice Hot Spot
This restaurant is located right at the entrance in to Stillwater. Although our appetizers were late in arriving and came along with our salads, the food was exceptionally good. I would recommend this restaurant. The management was more than accomodating and we had a great time. The live music outside as we dined was also a very nice touch. We will go back.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Even though it was busy we were not forgotten about and seated at bar then shortly seated afterwards

Luna Rossa a winner.
I took my wife to Luna Rossa the night after our wedding. And it was a good choice. We were greeted, and seated, promptly. Water and bread were quickly delivered to our table. A very well-informed and friendly waitress described the daily specials to us, and took our wine order. The tomato-basil soup was very good. The Margherita pizza was excellent, with fresh tomatoes and basil on a perfectly baked crust. I had one of the daily specials, The Lobster Ravioli, with shrimp and scallops in a pesto cream sauce. The ravioli was great, albeit drowned in a pool of too much sauce. And while the sauce was tasty, the dish could easily have passed for a soup. But, overall, a very nice restaurant. We will be back!

Great time and experience. Excellent food and service. Would definitely go back.

Good food, odd seating selection
Food was very good. Not sure if Kraft paper table cloth overlays were quaint or cheap. Kind of felt like fussy aunt not wanting kids to spill on her real table cloth. Had reservation for our anniversary and place was not busy on Saturday night, yet they seated us at a tiny table against wall between two Windows where we could see nothing. We're not usually fussy, but it would have been nice to be asked about our seating preference.

foodies need not apply
It was a cute restaurant but The pasta dishes are nothing special. The spinach manicotti was doused in parsley and the Alfredo noodles were a little bland. Otherwise the service was excellent and the bar tender knew his stuff.

Shared a seafood flatbread at lunch, frutti di marre pizza. Loved it! Also ordered the only beer on tap, Oberon, and it was fabulous. Can't wait to go back!

Saturday nights they have live music. Depending where you sit the music is too loud.

This restaurant is a good place for special occasions. It is a little crowded with the tables so close together but the food is very good.

Great place, but did wait
Great place, but did wait over 30min at table for a server.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Receptionist was cold and inefficient but server & busser were AWESOME! Food was great! Table request (quiet, with a view, away from music were mostly honored). Had to tell server about the 50th birthday we were celebrating. She felt bad about not knowing and covered for receptionist. (We don't drink so cannot comment on wine, but there was a lot to choose from and most of the tables had wine.) Music was two person group playing James Taylor-type music. We were about 15 feet away and were only there for about 15 minutes so don't know if it would have become an interruption.

Wonderful Italian in Stillwater
For years I have been going to Luna Rossa's sister restaurant. So, I was familiar with the menu before coming here. We had the same wonderful food we come to expect. It was made even better with the decor in the old building the dining room where we are, with its windows into the cave behind the restaurant.
What made this experience even better was the incredible wait staff. The were very friendly, helpful and frequently checking to make sure we were satisfied. I have been to more "elegant" (expensive) restaurants that could take a lesson from Luna Rossa. I strongly recommend this restaurant.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was wonderful and very sweet when reserving i had stated it was my boyfriends and i's anniversary and they wrote happy anniversary on the table and went out of their way to say it an give a free scoop of gellato the food was wonderful an our waitress Amanda was fantastic fast friendly service all around and a very romantic ambience
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a great time at Luna Rossa. The service was excellent.... friendly, attentive and fast. When we walked in the restaurant we were immediately greeted and then seated at our table. The waitstaff made some great recommendations for wine. The food was super. Luna Rossa may be a little more expensive that other restaurants but I would expect that when receiving great service and food.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Will still go back
I've eaten at Luna Rossa a handful of times. It's always been a wonderful experience. I recently had dinner here 2 times in a month and had the same thing for dinner. The taste had totally changed from one visit to the next. It was better the first time. But in any event, the wait staff is wonderful, very attentive and friendly. The atmosphere is romantic and fun.

when we got to Luna Rossa
when we got to Luna Rossa we were told they did not have our reservation. Regardless we were seated right away and waited for our friends. Turns out our friends had already gotten there, checked in on our reservation and were waiting in a different part of the restaurant. it took us about 20 minutes to figure this out. Had our reservation showed up as 'checked in' or something to that effect the hostess would have seen that and let us know. Instead it supposedly disappears, therefore depending on the hostess who checked my friends in, she didn't realize they were there and the mix up occurred. Was our hostess misinterpreting the reservation system or is there a flaw in it?
