Cross section measurements for quiescent stellar H-burning are hampered mainly by extremely low counting rate and cosmic background. An effective method is to perform cross section measurements in an underground laboratory where cosmic ray flux is reduced by several orders of magnitude. The main features of un underground nuclear reaction measurement are presented focusing mainly on accelerators and detectors techniques taking examples from the LUNA experiment at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy. Finally some astrophysical consequences of LUNA results are discussed.
