We had lunch during restaurant week. The staff was great and the food very good and there was a good portion of everything. The mussels in saffron sauce were superb. I was a little disappointed with my pasta dish, think they may have left out the basil, but it was still good. The only real negative was my cappuccino as I really didn't like it. But that will not keep me away as I am looking forward to going back.

We went to Luna Blu on a Wednesday (half-price wine!) night during Annapolis Restaurant Week. What a wonderful experience! The variety and quality are amazing. For starters, we had Crab Bruschetta and Prosciutto-wrapped Burrata with figs and pistachio nuts. Both amazing. For mains, we enjoyed Veal Annapolis (veal with crab and mushrooms) and Salmone con Spinaci (grilled salmon with scallops and crabmeat over sautéed spinach leaves). Portions were plentiful, the veal and seafood were perfectly cooked, and the sauces complemented the main ingredients superbly. We finished with Chocolate Mousse and Zabaglione, both served in stemmed wine glasses, and both perfect sweet endings. A bottle of Pinot Grigio San Pietro, from Alto Adige, Italy, was a lovely accompaniment and a super bargain (half-price wine!). There's so much to like at Luna Blu. We'll be back soon.

the appetizer of clams and mussels was outstanding. After the appetizer I was expecting the veal to be fantastic. It was just ok. the service was good and it's a cute little place. Parking was difficult. I will go again in the future.

Erin (owner) does a nice job in ensuring the food is high quality with good size portions and that the service is always good. Prices remain fair and we keep returning to Luna Blu. Location is convenient and we can usually find street parking within a block or two

We had an absolutely fantastic dinner the other night. Food was out of this world, couldn't beat the price, service was great, I could go on and on. The owner, Erin, was taking orders and serving food as she made a point to stop and talk to each table. Highly recommend. We are already looking at the calendar for when we can go back.

My husband and I had been looking forward to our trip to Luna Blu. We had heard great things about it. However, if you are Italian (as I am), don't go. It was EXTREMELY disappointing. We will not return, nor do I recommend for anyone else.

This was our first time at Luna Blu and we left feeling underwhelmed. The food was really sub-par. We had the antipasto platter and all three types of meat were old and brown and the flavor was off. We went there because my son wanted carbonara-turns out theirs isn't actually carbonara, it's pasta with alfredo sauce (a common issue that we've run into before, so luckily we asked for clarification before ordering). I had the barramundi-which was completely flavorless, overcooked, and dry. All in all, nothing was super offensive, just not good. The dessert was the best thing we had (the strudel), and that helped end the night on a not totally negative note. They were super busy-it was restaurant week, service was fine, not exceptional. Overall, I expected more from a place with such positive reviews. Unfortunately, our experience was not great :(

First time here and I wasn’t overly impressed. Nothing was terrible, but this is not a place I would rush back to. We had a reservation for 7:30 and weren’t seated until 7:50 but there’s no room to wait so we were cramped in a tiny hallway, standing room only. There was no one to greet us when we first arrived. We were there until 10:45 - the whole meal process went sooo slowly. The food and service were pretty good, but again, just not super impressive.

Enjoyed our meal again. Business was busy but noise level was still quiet.
Great place. Reservation honored.
Nice for singles, couples or families.
Not inexpensive but worth it for our food, atmosphere, location.
Because we dine early we have managed to get street parking within a block all three times we have dined here.

Luna Blu was exceptionally busy the night we went. We had to wait at least 15 minutes passed our reservation. we told the waitress we had another engagement at top of the hour. She took our order prior to seating us which allowed us to make our other appointment. This was added service that was much appreciated. The food was excellent as it has been in the past. A definite place for Italian cuisine.

Their set menu for $60/person wasn’t worth the quality of the food. The bronzino wasn’t poor quality and the lobster used the in Farfalle Adriatico tasted over cooked and frozen.

We went for the Valentine's Day four-course meal and it was absolutely fantastic. We started with an appetizer that included shrimp served on cheesy grits and a fantastic seasoned octopus that was out of this world. The salad course was truly spectacular: candied pecans and goat cheese served over a bed of salad and topped with a pear vinaigrette. Wow! The main courses were equally awesome, and we finished off with chocolate covered strawberries and prosecco. Two friends joined us after dinner, and all of us enjoyed drinks from Luna Blu's extensive bar. Our server, Colleen, was absolutely top notch and made the evening very memorable. Overall, the food, service, and quiet cozy atmosphere were all very much to our liking, and I'd highly recommend Luna Blu to anyone looking for a great meal in Annapolis.

Wish we lived closer. We were seeing our financial advisor Ann, and knew there would be food offered so We went there for just appetizers so I could have their - Lumache alla Luna*
Escargots sautéed with mushrooms, marsala wine and tomato cream sauce served in a puff pastry.
This dish is my favorite. It’s only an appetizer
And my husband had a special dish with Pancetta Bacon, Mussels in a cream sauce. Which he said he would enjoy having again if it was available.
Yum and Yum
