My late husband & I had been going to Luna for years because from our first time there (I don't remember how many years ago) we never had food or an experience that was not to our liking. It quickly became "our" special spot for romantic dinners for special occasions or just a dinner out when we needed/wanted to make it special. It has a very cozy somewhat homey feel and the food and service are consistently excellent whether you have a few favorites you like to stick with or want to try every new special they create. Food is always beautifully presented & delicious from appetizers to desserts & everything in between. You knew you were someone special to us if we treated you to Luna. Staff is personable, attentive & professional. I have yet to find its equal here in Concord.

The Seafood is awesome, the Hafid is the best waiter and you just couldn't ask for better service. He surprised me by remembering what we ordered the last two times. We have been there 4 times and each time has been a winner. Since it is so good we have decided to do my Mom's 78th birthday party there this week. We have tried the pasta ,seafood, caprese, salads and the dessert. All were fresh, beautifully prepared and flavorful. We spend a lot of time in North Beach, AKA little Italy and we know our Italian food-

Pros: Food, service, ambience

Cons: It's on the smaller side but I like that and it's not super quiet but not super noisy either

This is by far the BEST Italian restaurant in the area. My wife and I go here for every special occasion - or when we get a babysitter. We recently dined here for Valentine's Day and had a wonderful meal - the food was perfect (as usual) the service was very good. The ambiance was nice, as well.

Found this restaurant when I queried for family restaurants and tried it based on the posted reviews. We were quite disappointed. The decor is nice although a bit typical for an italian restauraunt. Although we were seated immediately, I found the service to be so-so, although they did keep my husband's ice tea filled. There's only a limited wine by the glass menu, particularly in whites. When they took our orders, the server didn't try to "upsell" at all by asking if we wanted salads or appetizers. I had to stop her from leaving to order bruschetta. No suggestions or asking if we had questions, etc. Maybe it was because we brought our 4 year old; I kind of got the impression that they didn't want us to linger too long.

We had a mushroom bruschetta, which was tasty. My husband had the stuffed chicken breasts, which he said weren't that good. I had the crab risotto with a lobster-based tomato sauce and prawns. The risotto was an odd, unappetizing grey-brown color, and wasn't particularly flavorful. Most of it got left on my plate. Even my daughter, who eats almost anything, didn't touch it. The prawns and sauce were decent though.

I wouldn't really rate this restaurant as "family friendly" either. They have no kid's menus, no activities (although what parent doesn't bring their own?), and it was really too adult of an atmosphere. Also, as mentioned above, they didn't really seem too pleased to have children there.

We MIGHT try it again without our daughter, just to see if it was an off night, but probably not anytime soon. I really can't recommend it right now.

We tried this on a whim early one Saturday night. When we went in, we were asked if we had reservations, which we did not. They were able to seat us right away anyways. The food was excellent and the wait staff was nice. We went there on a Monday night for my boyfriends birthday and pretty much had the whole restaurant to ourselves. The staff was still very friendly, but without hang over us all the time so that we had our privacy. The place is VERY small, but that makes it all the more desirable to me.

I have loved Italian food for many years. Luna is great for anyone who craves authentic Italian. The place is small, but don't be discouraged it is truly a gem. I have been visiting Luna's for years now, has been my best kept secret. The word is out and they deserve the praise. Visit and you will not be disappointed.

Pros: Food, Service, Food!!

Cons: They need a bigger location.

I am writing this with plans to jet out the door for my third visit to Luna Ristorante in Concord. Abdel (the Chef/Owner) keeps it true to form when it comes to the intricacies of mastering a good sauce, then seasons with his own specific recipe beliefs in mind. I know this review reads like I am trying to write like a professional food critic, but the reason for that is Luna operatesunder the highest professional level of service, food, wine selection, and yes...clientele. Abdel's regular customers eat out often, and would swear by there experiences at Luna. Look for my after lunch update.

this restaurant was surprisingly good, especially for the east bay. my boyfriend and i (both exceedingly picky eaters) felt that this was one of the best meals we'd had east of oakland/berkeley.

j started out with an artichoke bruschetta with caramelized onions which was very tasty (but rather filling - consider sharing this appetizer). i opted for a spinach salad with apples, pears, pecans and blue cheese crumbles. the salad was pretty good but nothing to write home about. again, large portions, so consider sharing!

for his main course, j ordered a veal dish (i forgot which sauce he ordered; i didn't taste it) which he found much to his liking. the meat was accompanied by some very flavorful sides - potatoes, sweet potatoes and a garlic spinach with pine nuts that was so delicious i had to order an extra side. my main dish was a gnocchi with scallops, tomatoes, spinach and a flavorful pesto sauce. i think the dish would have been better had it been a bit warmer (i made our server wait as i made my way through the giant spinach salad). the sauce was good, but the scallops rubbery and overcooked (and/or perhaps not that fresh).

for dessert we ordered the chocolate souffle - excellent presentation and again a delicious sauce, but the souffle itself tasted like a mediocre brownie. i ordered two glasses of the da vinci chianti classico, which nicely complemented the meal right through to the dessert. oh and the service was very impressive - our waiter was attentive and accommodating, and offered a lot of useful advice and recommendations. overall an excellent dining experience for the east bay, and one that j and i will surely revisit.

My boyfriend and I went to this restaurant on a Saturday night. We did not have reservations, but got seated right away. It is very small, but tastfully decorated, but the food was outstanding. I had the filet minon with a gorgonzola sauce and my boyfriend had the gnocchi with the same sauce. Here is the true test of a good Italian restaurant, the gnocchi was perfect, and the left-overs that my boyfriend brought home, when reheated, did not seperate into an oily mess that you can get from many other Italian restaurants with their sauces. We can not wait to go back. I would recommend making reservations though, we got there a bit earily and lucked out.

Pros: Food, nice people, even though crowded, not loud.

Cons: Parking sometimes difficult in area.

Salad, dinner and dessert were all excellent. Small, intimate setting. Best italian I've had in the area. Staff was attentive.

Ambiance perfect for that romantic dinner but also suited for a good business lunch.
Prices are competitive.
Food is very very good. I have eaten there several times already and the menu changes always bring pleasant and delectable suprises.
The tastes and textures are varied and paired excellently. The dish I remember the most is the pork medallions that had the suteed/steamed spinach with cranberries and nuts on the side.

We loved this place though tables are close together-- this can be a plus or minus depending on who you sit next to. I'll be honest. I have had better food but this was still satisfying and WELL DONE! It hit the spot. That satisfying feeling we got from Luna was different from what you get from the "great" restaurants of the world. Luna appeals to your soul like when you're with family members that you actually have something in common with. Nice presentation of food and fresh ingredients consistently come out of Luna's kitchen. We had the best time chatting with our neighbors and closed down the restaurant.
Grazie!

Note: we probably will have our wedding rehearsal dinner-- can seat 40-80 guests and the room dividers can be easily moved.
