What a great find! We tried
What a great find! We tried various bruschettas and all were delicious - a great variety from sweet to savory to rich. the brussels sprouts were excellent, as was the orechhiette ragu. Bravo!

A neighborhood gem indeed!
We had an exquisite dinner with friends. Some dishes were pure poetry. Don't miss the pasta e faggioli!

The food was really delicious.
The food was really delicious. My guest and I really loved it. We especially liked the lamb tomato sauce and pasta. The different types of bruschetta were wonderful, especially the mushroom. Also the spinach with cream sauce was fantastic. My friend lives in New York and she will go back again soon. That is a real compliment because my friend's husband is a chef!

We had a terrific meal at the kitchen bar with our 5 year old daughter. She was fascinated watching the chefs do their thing!

A consistently great restaurant
I come to Lunetta, all the time. The staff are great. Every dish I've had is delicious and the restaurant has a nice ambience.

Our favorite Italian
Lunetta's menu is not extensive, but this is a good thing. Each dish is a perfect melding of appearance, smell, and taste. We have never had a disappointing meal here. The wait staff is very friendly and it is great to sit at the kitchen bar in the back and watch the chefs ply their craft. Pleasantly informal and laid back, it's a great place to relax and have a fantastic meal.

I've eaten here twice and
I've eaten here twice and have had great wines and superb pasta dishes and soup. My only complaint is that for this last dinner with my wife and adult daughter, there were no fish options on the menu, leaving very few choices for my dining companions. They enjoyed their food, but had to settle for less exciting spaghetti with oil and garlic and spaghetti with clams. The service was nothing short of perfect: warm; helpful; and making us feel very much at home.

I love Lunetta. I like to call it "modern" Italian. I've never had a bad meal. The portions are the perfect size and the food is always flavorful. They also make delicious cocktails and have a nice selection of wine. A great place to eat in you're visiting Cobble Hill or Boerum Hill!

You must check out Lunetta and try the food. It's a little bit on the more casual side if you go in the earlier dinner hours, but could definitely also be quiet and very romantic. A rainy summer Friday 7:30 reservation was apparently during a very hectic time or possibly understaffed time, where we waited a number of times before our waitress came back to us. Otherwise, the food makes up completely for the service, and I would go back to try their other pastas and bruschettas.

Family get together
Returned to this neighborhood restaurant for the first time in almost a year. The waiter was very friendly and informative about the food. we had a panzanella salad (split between my wife and I) it was good but a bit small. The others split a few of the bruschetta, which they enjoyed very much. For the main courses with had; chicken Milanese,gnocchi special,linguini with clams and I had the orecchiette. All the entrees were excellent.
The server was very good.a few items were ordered soon after the initial order was taken, but took too long to get out to the table especially since it wasn't very busy.
I'd recommend this place to people.

Our favorite neighborhood Italian
This has become our go-to neighborhood place for Italian. The menu is small, but focused and the food is stellar. I'd highly recommend Lunetta to anyone who loves Italian comfort food. A keeper beyond question.

I discovered Lunetta on Trip Advisor. They are always right on. Had a wonderful dinner and dessert. Try the bruschetta with honey lemon ricotta. I will definitely be back

We adore this place. We are regulars, it's true, so we are a bit biased about the consistent quality of the food and the professional but warm service. During the week it is a romantic get-away, on weekends a festive party. Their food is the star. Cozy, yet adventurous. Something daring, something comforting, something for everyone.

Lunetta never lets me down!
I love this place, and their bruschettas, pastas, wines, and more are always made to perfection. I wasn't a fan of the meatballs, but everything else is just heavenly.

Delighted first time!!!
This restaurant is welcoming and authentic! The food was delicious, creative and hand crafted.

Cozy and Deliciious
Lunetta is one of my favorite local restaurants. It's a great place to dine out alone and an even better place to bring family and friends.
The food is delicious - stand outs are the orecchiette, broccoli rabe & fennel sausage and the pappardelle, rosemary braised spring lamb. There are some delicious seasonal salads and side dishes too.
The cocktails and wines are terrific. As for dessert, I recommend the homemade gelato served as a trio of 3 flavors.
I've always had solid wait service so in combination with the tasty food and casual ambience, this makes this a place I often go bak to.

Slow Food Italian
Everything we ordered was delicious, especially the pastas--the pappardelle with slow-braised pork, heirloom tomatoes and fresh peaches was a revelation, as was the spaghetti with clams and escarole. Main courses were also excellent, from the sparkling version of chicken milanese with lemon, capers and arugula salad to the grilled steak with sauce verte and roasted potatoes. We were only sorry that we were too full for dessert. Maybe next time!

Wonderful meatballs, delicious
Wonderful meatballs, delicious bruschetta, even have a lambrusco on the wine list, which I don't find often enough at Italian places!

I'll be back
First time at Lunetta - The food was delicious, the service was attentive but not intrusive, and my cocktail (The Ginger Ginny) was perfect!

Will return for sure.
Really delicious food. Grilled corn was incredible, pastas were great. Very nice servers. Would definitely return here.

Good food, service and location
Lunetta is well located in walking distance to Barclay and BAM. was very good in small dining space just off Atlantic Avenue. Early dinner was quiet with few customers, but very nice service.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a fantastic little spot! The food is unique - little twists on traditional Italian dishes make each memorable. Bruschetta is particularly good - the meatballs have an added twist (dried cherries, if I recall) which make them outstanding, and chicken Milanese done to perfection. The place is spotless, and the service is fast and friendly. We had a party of ten, the the server was all over it the whole night. We will be back.

Friendly with good food
We got there at 5:30 and left at 8. We hung out and had drinks and horsdoeurves and never felt rushed even though it got crowded. Our waitress was friendly, prompt and helpful. All the food was good. My friend lives around the corner and she said the only thing that she could not recommend was that the meatballs were a little dry. However, one of the others got them and they came with sauce and she enjoyed them. Note: if you go at 5:30 there were a lot of kids.

Interesting, excellent food
..in a lovely, quiet atmosphere in a vibrant Brooklyn neighborhood. Inventive but yummy takes on pasta, and other things looked good too. Highly recommended.
