Seemed like there was only 1 waiter for the whole restaurant. Service was very slow and the marinara sauce they used tasted like a jar sauce.

My only concern is that the restaurant tends to get a little Smokey. Perhaps the kitchen needs additional ventilation. Otherwise, the food is considerably good as is the service.

The service was good and the food absolutely delicious. Very sensitive and obliging to allergies and special requests. Will definitely be back. Note that 4%is added to bill if paid with credit card

This is the absolute BEST Italian Restaurant around Boca. From the attentive wait staff to the friendly hostess, you cant ask for more. Kenny our waiter kept our glasses full and really cared that we had a good experience. This place is consistently excellent and clean.

Restaurant has more walkers than tables. Food is very good, but more pricey than it used to be. So many geriatric customers that block the aisles with their apparatuses, but a nice group of people. Place needs a remodeling to make it brighter, but food and service are worth the trip

Food is always good. The restaurant tends to be very busy until 7:45 PM when the early diners leave.
Lobster special was great, but all the other dishes were terrific.

We brought our friends to enjoy one of our favorite restaurants, La Luna. Kenny was our outstanding server, whose personality & expertise always enhance our dinners here. We all ordered the lobster specials, which were not only delicious, but very generous portions. Another wonderful evening here, & our friends also can't wait to return. (Charming hostess Alexa was a delightful greeter)

We had a 6:30 reservation and were meeting a couple of friends that flew in from Texas for the weekend. We arrived about 6:20 and gave the hostess our name and I had requested a quiet table so we could talk. At first the gentlemen @ the hostess station wanted to seat us at the front by the window, but I said no........it was too crowded and wanted to sit toward the back. Thank goodness I did that because as we walked back to a table in the rear of the restaurant........there were our guests already seated. They had arrived early and were seated and when we arrived.......neither the hostess or the gentlemen were aware that they (the rest of our party) were already seated and waiting for us. How embarrassing would it have been if we had taken the table by the window and our guests were seated at a different table. Need better organization and professionalism.

the osso bucco was delicious. the soup was too beany and not to my taste. the stuffed mushrooms were not very tasty with no garlic sauce. the linguine with white clam sauce had no taste needed clam sauce.
I was disappointed in my meal but as I said the sauce on the osso bucco was very good.

If all you care about is quantity then this is the place for you! So much food but the quality is very mediocre. Pasta is way over cooked, salmon had no taste, chicken dishes were bland- overall very disappointing.

Hadn't been to the restaurant in some years but decided to give it another try last month. Had a great meal. Now the other night we went for the 2 lb. lobster special (Mon-Thu). Several other folks were there for the same reason! Hard-shell lobsters, they were steamed to perfection. Soup or salad was included and veggies or pasta. We took our pasta home as we couldn't finish at the restaurant since we ate every speck of lobster. Will definitely go again soon. Service was excellent. If you love lobster, this is the place.

Food is always excellent. For value, they offer a sunset special that ends with a 5:30 seating. This is always well attended and service can be on the slower side. If you are not looking for the sunset specials it is best to arrive after 6:30 when the staff can be more attentive and service quicker.

We did not have a good experience whatsoever. The place was way overbooked and completely understaffed. Had to wait an hour at our table for food and ask for bread four times. Everyone was fighting over tables. A very elderly crowd that was extremely demanding and taxing. Food was very, very average. Never to return. DO NOT GO.

Very good Italian food. Always busy, so make a reservation if eating before 7:30PM. The diners before seven are older folks.

We dine at LabLuna at least once a month. Every item on the menu is excellent. My favorite is the potato crusted snapper although the lasagna and the flounder are a good choice as well.

We have gone to La Luna many times and it was always good. However this time the air conditioning in the back was turned off. My husband, who is usually cold, was so hot that he left the table and could not ear his dinner. I felt the manager should have come over since we are very frequent (at least3 times a month if not more) diners. The couple we were with were very upset and said they would never go back

My husband and I will try it again

I felt our waitress was unfamiliar with the side dishes..only offering us one pasta and then when we asked about another she said "ok"...I also felt she was rushing us to get out. Since we made a mistake and thought the "early bird" was until 6 not 5:30 and our reservations were made on Open Table we were not able to use it and had to pay the difference as well as no dessert or beverage. Had I called the restaurant I would have asked but you didn't open until 4..
We were seated before 6 and when we asked her if we could use the "early bird" she said no, the computers won't take the order.
Needless to say we were unhappy from the start.

Visiting my mother-in-law who lives in Boca Raton from the the greater Chicago area, we were looking for a special restaurant to celebrate her 75th birthday. One of her friends recommended La Luna. What a great recommendation. My wife and I both had Eggplant Parmigiana and my mother-in-law had a chicken dish. My mother-in-law loved her dish and my wife and I raved that the Eggplant Parmigiana was the best we've ever eaten. The setting was excellent and the service beyond outstanding. My mother-in-law even received a complimentary birthday dessert. All in all everything was perfect and spectacular!! If pining for a great Italian food experience while in this area of Florida you can find no better Italian Bistro than La Luna Italian Bistro!!
