Visited here for a work event & a wedding. Service was horrible both times. Wait staff needs training or just new jobs. Food was good but the service just left a bad taste in our mouth. No bueno!

Many people may overlook La Luna because of it outward appearance. If you do you are missing out on some good Italian food and wonderful service. It's great for a weeknight dinner on a budget.

A group of friends and I tried La Luna for ladies night and were pretty disappointed. There was no live music as it had been advertised and the food was not very good. Our waitress was nice, however did not package my leftovers well and the contents spilled all over my car. If you want a good ladies night go... More

There were 8 adults and 6 children. We were given a private alcove to sit in. That proved to be a God send considering that one of the kids was 4 years old . The food was priced differently for the children according to their age. Brunch was excellent especially the roast beef and the large shrimp. There was something... More

I believe they were understaffed in the kitchen and in service. The dining room was not full--thank goodness. But they had a special banquet in the back. Two hours for our food! The waitress did not remove our app plates or salad plates. I think she too was embarrassed to come to the table...her lack of presence just made the... More
