“Great service, great food”
Reviewed 25 May 2013

It was a really cold and rainy night and we were keen to try some Chinese in Chinatown but took a different turn and we were in Little Italy! We had a quick look at the menu and hurried into the warm and friendly place that Luna is. Great waiter very knowledgeable about the menu and as we were from Australia steered us to what was the equivalent of a shiraz - which matched perfectly with our meal. The younger couple both had pizzas - huge and really only needed the one between them, I had a chicken dish Petti di Pollo alla Vesuviana just beautiful. Finished off with a complimentary tiramisu made the whole night special. As we were leaving we saw a couple looking at the menus of surrounding restaurant then as they came over to the Luna I said just go in! and they did. Well done Luna!

“Awesome! Best service ever!”
Reviewed 11 May 2013 via mobile

We were having a hard time finding anything for my sister to eat that was gluten free. Our waiter, Apel, and the chef made adjustment to menu items just for her so she could enjoy a dinner out in Little Italy! The service was exceptional, the food was sublime, and the price was mid-range ( 10-25 dollars) but so very worth it! I would make it a staple any time I visited the city! I can't say enough about this place!

“Good local place in Little Italy”
Reviewed 10 May 2013

Four of us recently had dinner at Luna's. While waiting for our companions, two of us had sangria from large jugs at the front of the store. The red was good, the white excellent. Neither were too sweet, and the price wasn't bad - I think $7 a glass.

For appetizers we had rolotini (sp?) - thinly sliced eggplant rolled with a cheese filling and covered with red sauce - and fried calamari. Both were excellent. The rolotini was tender and delightful.

Our meals were also very good. We got great service from Aldo and the other waiters.

We were served a fabulous tiramisu to share - to "show their appreciation for our business. Just the right sweet finish to a nice meal.

One caveat... check your bill. Everything is done by hand, and mistakes can be made. :-)

“Great food”
Reviewed 19 February 2013 via mobile

Ate here on our visit from UK. Very friendly staff and food was excellent. Price was very reasonable by N.Y. Standards. Got offered some dessert which we declined and then waiter appeared with a piece of cake for us to share and said it's on the house. Tip of 20% is included when you get the bill which from our point of view made
Life easier. Will visit again when back in N.Y.
