This Jakarta’s new international semi-fine dining resto takes its guests to a classy ambience that marries New York style bar with authentic Italian dining venue.
Before the dining area, you will be walked through a cozy bar and lounge that lists a rich selection of quality wines and cocktails. The restaurant’s geometric tiles, round metal lamps and exposed brick walls make up the great culinary setting of Luna Negra, which has drawn various crowds of crème de la crème.
Luna Negra’s menu includes a variety of international dishes, ranging from homemade pastas and pizzas to steaks. Try the Fusilli Tuna, spiral pasta cooked with tuna in spicy tomato sauce. The pasta offers the delicacy of Italian authentic fare with international taste. And don’t miss sipping the signature Luna Iced Tea, sweet flavoured iced tea with grass jelly cubes. It’s a delectable way to quench your thirst.
There is an open kitchen at the back of the restaurant. While enjoying live food preparation, relish your palate with Napoletana pizza. This generous portion of one of the restaurant’s must-tries is topped with mozzarella cheese and anchovies.
Prefer to sit in the bar for a distinct atmosphere? Just ask the waiter/waiters for a seat, get your choice of fine red wine and pair it with steak in the menu. But there are people seen to line up entering the place. So, making a reservation is strongly recommended before you get your dining experience buzzed with excitement.
