    This is a neighborhood gem. Everything on the menu great and the service is fantastic. I know people go here for the pasta, but if you see a meat dish on the specials menu, get it.

    Tjhe best Italian kitchen in NYC. The Caesar salad is incomparable. So too the Matriciana and Arrabiata sauces. And the Vitello Tonnato is to die for.

    Luna Rossa is an UES gem. The food is the most authentically Italian that I have found in the neighborhood. It's not cheap, but worth the splurge for a special occasion or family/ friend celebration.

    Excellent local Italian restaurant. Service is good, will accommodate any dietary concerns, chicken parmesan (not on the menu) is terrific. House wines are a good value.

    We sat outside. The food was very good and nice staff as well. However, I believe the service is better inside the restaurant Service is not up to par outdoors. It feels like we were forgotten. Otherwise., we were happy with the food and would return. Of course indoors.

    I was introduced to Luna Rossa by a friend on Tuesday. On Thursday, I invited another friend who really loved it. She will invite many others because she dines out a lot. I'm glad such a special place has survived the pandemic.
