What a great find! Went to dinner with some new friends who have been coming to St. Maarten for 15 years. They recommended Luna Rossa, and the restaurant did not disappoint. The owner and her son were so friendly. A nice wine and cocktail selection. And the food was outstanding. Who thought you could get such great Italian food on... More

We tried to get a table across the street at another Italian place. Their reservations were holding up four tables outside so we crossed the street THANKFULLY... We literally bumped into Luna Rossa! We were greeted, seated and had drinks in hand in minutes. We had an excellent meal and reasonably priced. The homemade pasta was delicious and to end... More

Bar none, Luna Rosa has the most incredible italian food on the island. This small Simpson bay gem makes everything from scratch! The homemade pasta is incredible! The family, straight from Milano, Italy knows exactly how to create authentic italian dishes. Fantastic!

Service was a bit off that night as we had 3 different servers who really weren't very attentive at all. This seems to more the norm on the island than the exception. We ordered a pasta dish and stuffed chicken. The chicken was very nicely done but the pasta was not quite al dente and the sauce was lacking flavor.... More

I've been to 2 other Italian places right in the same area and they weren't very good at all. So we will stick to Luna. The food is great, the only suggestion I would make is to turn down the lights a bit and turn up the music!!!

The atmosphere is a little like eating in a starbucks, but the food is really good. Serving sizes are good, but you can use the appetizer or dessert to feel full. Recommended was the Gnochi, it was the best she had ever. The lobster ravioli was large and the sauce was fantastic. Good selection of wine by the glass.

This is second time we have come to this best kept secret. I have eaten in many country's and this place is incredible. The bruschetta is without a doubt the best in the world. All the pasta is made fresh daily and I had the lasagna which is so good you want to lick the plate. I can only say... More
