Luna Rosa


Phone240-1455 or 6780-3509

Located on Roberto Eisenamm (the road into Coroando), past Coronado entarance gates and just past the Fire Station and church on the right hand side.


Since 2002 Anthony Bruno a native of Florence, Italy has been splitting his time between Italy and Panama to run Luna Rosa, a popular Italian restaurant in Coronado. Luna Rosa has the ambiance of a quaint, European restaurant and draws a large, loyal crowd of Italian food lovers. The restaurant offers a Tuscan style menu with a large array of choices from fillet de res appetizers to main course meals of chicken, fish, steak, lobster crepes, and their fantastic, Italian style pizza. Thier menu is complemented with a nice wine selection featuring wines from Italy and Spain.

I suggest the Margarita pizza; tomato, garlic, mozzarella, oregano, and basil.

The servers at Luna Rosa are just as loyal as the clientele. In the nearly two years that I have been dining at Luna Rosa the staff members have not changed. The servers are always friendly and you can count on excellent service and excellent food, every time. Luna Rosa offers espresso and cappuccinos made with the Italian brand coffee, Lavazza, and many wonderful deserts, such as Panacota (similar to flan, but better).

Open Friday, Saturday for lunch and dinner and Sundays until 5pm. Menu prices range from $5.50 to $14.50. You can order dinners and pizzas to go, and for those who wish to bring their own wine, corkage is free.
