We had a wonderful dinner. We've been to this restaurant many times but the menu has changed apparently due to a new chef. It's improved considerably, although the bread could be better. We had a lovely quiet table in the back with great wine and great service. This is a terrific neighborhood, casual spot, near the movie theaters on 86th Street.

It was price fixed menu. The food was amazing, and really the only reason I would go back. A 9pm reservation had us leaving at 1130pm. I received my filet at 11pm, a full two hours after we were seated. The food really was great, just took forever to get the courses along and the waiter did not seem to care to give any input on what the best options were on a limited menu.

All went well until we had to wait over 30 minutes for dessert with no one on the wait staff giving us any updates.

I have dined at Luna Rossa on a number of occasions. Always the service has been caring and
accommodating. The food is very tasty. I especially like their wild salmon with spinach. I have
also had pastas that are very good. A friend loves their calves liver. I have split their chopped
salad that is a favorite. The noise level is a tad high but that is because I am a bit hard of hearing and the staff always works to find the least noisy table. All in all I have always enjoyed
my meal at Luna Rossa. It is also very conveniently located near the 86th Street movie theaters.

Really lovely atmosphere, personable staff - they make sure you are taken care was heavenly - some traditional Italian dishes and some with a really nice twist of flavors. Would whole heartedly recommend to others! The gelato was heavenly!

Absolutely incredible food. My boyfriend and I both agreed that our meals tasted like they were straight from Italy. I would say it’s definitely the most authentic tasting Italian I’ve had in the city. Service was great. Ambiance was great. We had the spinach ricotta ravioli with truffle cream sauce (out of this world) and the parmesan encrusted chicken piccata, also amazing. We will definitely be back very soon.
