Lunetta is the very model of a Slow Food NYC Snail of Approval restaurant. The menu changes with the seasons, but a recent winter version included house-cured pancetta, soppressatta and finocchiona, local rapini, brussel sprouts, kale and cauliflower, and the now famous Lunetta meatballs made from sustainably-raised Berkshire pork and grass-fed beef.

Chef Adam Shepard is also a big supporter of other local food businesses—he features ricotta from Salvatore in Brooklyn, sorbetti and gelati from Il Laboratorio del Gelato, and cheeses from Snail of Approval purveyor Stinky Brooklyn. In addition, Lunetta is in the process of receiving its "Green Restaurant Certification" for its efficient use of energy and water, its handling of waste, and its use of sustainable foods and materials.
