It was wonderful. My husband was amazed since it was both our first time. It's like eating on Monterey Bay Area. The food was very tasty overall.

Items as described on menu were not what was brought to our table. A carpaccio of porcini mushrooms with truffle oil had no truffle oil, a sea bass with leek-based cream was not a sea bass and there was no leek flavor in the cream. We came back to this restaurant on Sunday because we had been so impressed by it two weeks earlier. This time was a serious disappointment. We won't be back

Lovely atmosphere but seemed very overpriced and I am not sure that the fish I ordered that was billed Chilean Sea Bass actually was Chilean Sea Bass vs another kind of Sea Bass. It was far thinner than any i have ever seen.

We had a wonderful dining experience for 3 of us on Mother’s Day. Truly a treat to be “dining in” again!

We each ordered 3 different items: Split an arugula salad 3 ways, eggplant Parmesan, spinach half moon ravioli (great sauce!) & a seafood pasta dish. Dessert was wonderful cannoli! (Sorry, no dessert photos!)

Service was great-attentive staff, quick service from order to table. Helpful with suggestions. Tiny bit noisy, but we could hear one another talk without having to shout! We were inside, not on the patio. All safety protocols followed. Felt very safe. Highly recommend!!!

Luna Blu is one of my favorite spots, especially for lunch on a beautiful day. This past weekend, my daughter and I had lunch there. We were seated at the most perfect table right next to the railing of the deck overlooking the bay and the boats. The experience reminds me of being on Capri. My chianti classico reserva was delicious; my daughter's cocktails were as well. We shared a fried calamari appetizer and Caesar salad. I requested extra anchovies on the salad but none arrived. When I requested bread, a basket was delivered with 1 small ciabatta roll in it. The entrees (branzino and seafood pappardelle were delicious, and the chocolate gelato and espresso martini for dessert were terrific. Our server seemed less than enthusiastic but the view, the food and drinks made up for it. The hostess was delightful and accommodating.

Terrific food, great service, and immediate responsiveness in making an outside table available when one freed up. The outdoor deck is wonderful. The waiters were attentive but not intrusive, and knew their menu.

Completely rushed. Relentless waiter pushed me 4 times in the first 15 minutes to pick my entree. I know the table has to be turned, but this was a joke. Oh, and his comment (at 6.50pm) as he put my entree down was 'not to spoil your dinner, but there's a party booked here at 7.30pm'.

Never again. Especially not as a single diner.

Hi we are sorry you felt rushed. We are only able to offer seating for guests of 1 to 2 ppl for a maximum of 1.5 hrs (3 ppl 1.75 hrs, 4 ppl 2 hrs, 5 ppl 2.25 hours and 6 or more 2.5 hours). Because your reservation was at 6pm we did have another reservation at 7:30pm. Our kitchen is very small it does get backed up when multiple orders are placed simultaneously. We do our best to have orders be placed so it gives sufficient time to make to the food and our guests eat without feeling rushed.

Had the brussel sprouts with pancetta - it was ok, some of them were not cooked enough and were tough to eat - the cioppino had a nice broth but the fish, mussels and calamari (chewy). were all over cooked, very disappointing , especially for $33!!!! We live on the water so the fact that they are on the water isn't such a big deal to us, BUT good food is!!!! Don't think we will be running back anytime soon, sadly

Feels like a little slice of Italy every time we go. It’s by far our favorite in Tiburon. Try the Mandarin Cosmopolitan (I have it every time I go), and the Calamari is a must. Also super friendly service.

The service was fine but nothing special for this quaint little restaurant on the water. The food is excellent and the price reflects so I would expect friendlier service. The waiter brought the wrong pasta dish for my son and when we told him, he said it's what our son ordered without questioning himself. It wasn't what our son ordered but didn't make a fuss.
I would try it again and hope for better service not just delivery of food.

My girlfriend and I came to celebrate our anniversary and it was great! Exception service, food, and views! We were seated on the deck, right along the Marina, with a few of the yachts and the city. They even gave us a complimentary Tiramisu since it was our anniversary!
