Made reservations for Resurrection Sunday Family Dinner and it was amazing. Everyone ordered something different and everyone had the same opinion about their food..........DELICIOUS!! This place is definitely an Annapolis best kept secret! I lived in Italy for 3 years and this food was the most authentic I’ve tasted since being back in the USA for the last 10 years. Thank you Luna Blu for making our experience one to remember and we will definitely be back soon!!

We had a Groupon voucher for lunch. Their eggplant and mozzarella Napoleon appetizer is awesome. We enjoyed sharing a 16" pizza, which was more than enough (we ended up taking some home). Each of us enjoyed a glass of pinot grogio.

Food was fantastic as always, service top notch per usual, nothing new to say except if you have never tried it, you should! This is a great dining experience, the Owner waits tables and is intimately involved. You won't be disappointed no matter if it's Pasta, Seafood, Chicken, Veal, or Pork that you crave.

Not a great meal. The Alfredo style pasta dish ordered by my table was not appetizing. The noodle consistency wasn't pleasant, too gummy and stuck together. It was like they had been over cooked or left in a pan too long. The sauce tasted too much of flour and not enough of Parmesan cheese and butter. On the up side the server was fantastic.

We had a delicious dinner at Luna Blu prior to the Capitals Stadium Series game at the Navy Stadium. Service was friendly and prompt, food was delicious and abundant, prices were reasonable. There were multiple vegan options on the menu and the staff was happy to modify other options to veganize them for me. As the waitress said, everything is prepared to order. Although it isn't around the corner for us, whenever we are in Annapolis, I would't hesitate to dine at Luna Blu.

Went there with some colleagues in a business trip; was pleasantly surprised by the restaurant. They offered an amazing prefixed menu. $38 for 4 courseS; and they were full sized courses. Very generous portions, amazing appetizer and entree selections. It was hard to make a choice. I think it was the owner who was in the front of house; she was warm and friendly. Made for a great experience.

Great neighborhood gem of an Italian restaurant. If you are really hungry, the prix fixe menu is a great deal. Four courses for $38. Every meal I have had here has been spectacular.

Four of us went there for lunch during restaurant week. I have been there a few times before and really found it to be a real nice place, with good food and good value, so I rounded up the four of us to have a really great lunch - and this was not a disappointment. Our server was very friendly, the food was great, and the manager stopped by our table to check on us.

Portions were generous. My appetizer was very good. My entree was very good. My wife is a good cook, and be particular at times. She bought the scampi and thought that there should have been more garlic in it. We were very pleased overall with our meal. Our waitress was excellent. Can't remember her name, but she had brown hair.

This place needs a makeover. Thought I going to a nice restaurant for lunch but was disappointed. No parking, I had on a casual outfit and felt way overdressed. Food was ok. I had salad(it was blah) dressing had no taste. The shrimp risotto only had 3 shrimp and lacked flavor. My husband had a chicken sandwich in which he said he liked. It’s not the worst place ever since his food experience was much better than my experience but Probably won’t go back.

After a larger, noisy restaurant the night before with disappointing food, it was great to find Luna Blu. We received a friendly greeting from the owner on arrival and she also was our server during the meal. The restaurant is very nice and also on the quiet side which was great for conversation. The menu offered many options and the food was all fantastic.

The food has been phenomenal on both occasions we have eaten here. The wine list is quite extensive, the choices we’ve made have been very tasty. Erin is quite the server, and quite the gracious hostess (as well as the owner) and remembered us (and our wine choice) from our only other visit. The dessert options are excellent and the Port is so good. All in all great experience, highly recommend Luna Blu

A great Valentine's Day menu made for a great Valentine's Day. Kudos to Erin for a wonderful prix fixe menu with some gems like the lollipop lamb chop appetizer and the osso bucco enter was excellent. And, still offering Wednesday night half price wine choices... What a combination.

All four of us had different appetizers and main courses, and we enjoyed every one. Erin’s service and advice was excellent, and she had the chef modify the risotto special for one of us. The lack of noise was wonderful. No ever had to raise their voice. We will return.

We really enjoyed our dinners at LUNA BLUE. The service was prompt and very helpful and the food was wonderful!! I had the four course special and everything that I ordered was wonderful, but it was too much food, so I probably won’t do that again.
MJ wife had the stuffed Australian sea bass and it was wonderful too! Very nice atmosphere; convenient lot parking garage immediately behind, attentive-knowledgeable-responsive servers and great food!
