A small restaurant with a lot of charm! I have never had a poor meal at Luna Blu-- and they give u plenty of food, some of which I usually enjoy another day. Our server awesome nice and did a super job. Deserves a prominent position on your Annapolis list of restaurants!

Luna Blu is a reliable and relaxed choice for dinner in Annapolis. Great value in the four course fixed price dinner. Servings are very large, and they're happy to box leftovers for lunch the next day. Very reasonable wine list, and 1/2 price bottles on Wednesdays is a fantastic deal!

Erin & her team make “Dining Under the Stars” an experience unlike any Annapolis restaurant. I always feel like I am at a family owned restaurant in a quaint Italian neighborhood. The service is superb, the food is Michelin star quality & the wine selections by the glass & bottle are exceptional. Erin’s passion for her restaurant & respect of staff shines through the entire evening - extremely impressive & refreshing.

Usually our go to place! Service was dismal and we waited over half an our for our reserved table. When one table opened, they sat a party that had just gotten there when they could have sat us there. Food was not up to usual standards. Maybe if we were offered a drink while we waited? Server did his job but certainly without a smile.

Nice restaurant close to hotel. Spaghetti a la carbonara was excellent; spaghetti a la puttanesca was too rich with too many olives. Caesar salad and Aperol spritz excellent. Unfortunately, noise level too high. Very narrow restaurant so tables close together. Could hear everyone’s conversation.

Last night was the second time in 2 weeks that we’ve been to Luna Blu— guess we like it! Erin (the owner) is an amazing woman: great chef but a lovely person besides. She has been so innovative with a multiplicity of wine dinners to be enjoyed at home during the pandemic. Each one benefits a charity and includes zooming with a knowledgeable representative of the particular wines chosen for that evening. Plus the dinners include 4 bottles of wine and several courses for an extraordinary price. Oh dear— No, I am not related to Erin— just want to support someone who is trying so hard during these tough times. Everyone we’ve introduced Luna Blu to has enjoyed the experience very much. Now, the restaurant is open to inside diners and it’s been delightful.

Luna Blu has been an Annapolis favorite of ours for a number of years now. We have our favorites but we often take advantage of the creative specials and 1/2 priced wines on Wednesday. The staff is wonderful and service is top rate and we are often asked to take our out of town friends back there when they come to visit.

Luna Blu's creative menu brings the food of Naples, Italy to Annapolis. The selection is among the most original and unusual I have seen at any Italian restaurant in the U.S. -- and this Italian American has been to a few of them. Obviously fresh ingredients, well and creatively prepared, well served by attentive staff -- I would recommend Luna Blu to any of my Italian relatives, here or in the Old Country. Bravo!

The owner was our waitress. Or so she said. She was harried, not focused and not friendly at all. I rarely write reviews but decided to do this one. She of all people should be friendly. One bathroom worked and a line of five women waiting. Ask 3 times for a wine glass for her and two Buser’s so I could share my wine with my husband. Never got it. Finally went to the hostess and she got it for me The last straw was the owner/waitress who literally forgot us and another table on the rainstorm. We waited and waited for our check. She came out and watched the rain fall. No hurry to get us our check finally the guy standing there with her saw me make the writing motion and he said they want their check. She went back I. To get it. We easily could Have skipped out on the check due to the storm. When she finally came I said we’ve asked you and others multiple Times for the check. She was not busy as she claimed. Three tables of people two of us who were waiting on the check from her. Not once did she smile During the entire encounter. The food was amazing and that was the only reason I ha e great ratings. Owner quit making excuses and get your attitude right. Act like an owner. We won’t be back because of you. Don’t blame short staffing. You weren’t.

We had been curious about Luna Blu for a while but it is kind of tucked away. We reserved a table for Diner Under the Stars and were quite impressed with all aspects of the dining experience, notably the pleasantly understated but efficent service, the chicken scallopini (OMG), the quick addition to anchovies to the salad upon request, and the pleasant ambience - we appreciated the umbrella. It's a quality operation. We'll be back soon!

We love Luna Blu and frequent here semi-regularly. The food and wine is excellent (especially the seafood pastas) and the staff are regularly very kind and helpful. It's always fun to attend for their Dinner Under the Stars nights in the summer as well, where there's the chance to sit in the street and enjoy live music. Highly recommend - one of our favorite places to eat in Annapolis.

We went to Luna Blu on a Wednesday night where West Street is closed to all traffic and tables and chairs are out on the street with umbrellas. It was a beautiful 75 degrees and the setting was charming. But the best part was the half-price bottle of good wine, two delicious entrees and tiramisu for dessert. We will definitely go back again.

We sat in the outdoor seating area which was on the sidewalk right in front of the restaurant next to West Street. The weather was great, and it was mid-week, so not too busy on the sidewalk. The server was very attentive even after warning us that she might be delayed covering tables inside. The food was exceptional, and overall a great night out.

We brought out of town guests to dining under the stars and chose Luna Blue after looking at the menus online. We didn't know that Wednesday is half price bottles of wine...bonus! Food selection was excellent including the appetizers, entre' and deserts (deserts are all made in house). If you are doing a low carb diet there are substitutes (I chose asparagus). The stuffed rockfish was excellent! Had a really fabulous time. If you are dining under the stars you will need reservations and there is live music (maybe a little loud).
