For more than 21 years, Luna Pizza has been serving traditional New York-style pizza to the West Hartford community from their Farmington Avenue location. Ryan and Jeff had a chance to have lunch at the new bar and chat with owner Alex MacDonald about his journey as a business owner and pizza chef over the past two decades, the key to a good pie, and about the recent transformation of Luna, including a new bar and menu.
Check out their Happy Hour at the new bar Monday through Friday from 3-6 p.m.
