Construction continues on the new location of the Luna Rosa Trattoria.May 17th planned opening date for new Luna Rosa: As some readers may know, the Luna Rosa Trattoria in Seaside Heights is temporarily out of business, awaiting the completion of a new location. The Luna Rosa will move to a location between Hamilton and Webster Avenues, at the site of the old Karma bar, known for its blue illuminated exterior. Not only will Luna Rosa occupy the Karma property, but it will also have its liquor license as well. In order to accommodate Luna Rosa, the Karma location had to have a dining room built onto it. This is a pretty straight forward building job, just one large room. Work continues to progress, and Luna Rosa owner Carmine DiRosa has set a tentative opening date of May 17th.
