Enjoyed delicious Italian pasta dishes on a Friday evening before going to the theater. Greeted at the door by the owner, who found us a table despite not having a reservation. Great service and great food. Be advised that the restaurant does not serve hard liquor -- only beer and wine -- and that reservations are advised

When Café Luna opened up years ago, it actually served decent food. Alas, this is no longer the case, and hasn't been for several years. I was dragged there for a business lunch with a medium sized party once again recently, and oh dearie me! The food, all the food, is utterly mediocre and common, bland, mostly tasteless if you're...

had a salad with grilled chicken for lunch. everything was fine on the salad (not great, but fine but the balsamic dressing tasted off to me--somewhat sour like it was old? most everyone i talk to loves this place, but i have not had much luck there. also, parking near there is a challenge

Nice venue to meet & greet politicians for their receptions. Also enjoyed nice private lunch there. Good spot.

A friend and I were at Marbles with our grandkids and decided to take in a late lunch. She wanted to try Caffe Luna but I would have preferred something more casual and quick with two five year olds. We loved the atmosphere and they had a nice selection on the menu. They even had a kid's menu. The service... More

Went there after a noon concert by the North Carolina Symphony. We were with some of the orchestra members. It seems that they do this often. My wife and I come here because it's our favorite lunch spot. We can't tell you much about the menu. Because we always order the same thing. The quality service and food are just... More

A group of ten of us had a really nice dinner at Caffe Luna. Unique and authentic pasta dishes in a beautiful and tastefully decorated restaurant in downtown Raleigh. Very nice wine and beer list. Note, the restaurant does not serve liquor. However, a great bottle of wine is all you need with great pasta and breads. Server was excellent.

And I grew up in a NY Italian neighborhood....this is truly a remarkable experience anywhere. And in particular for Raleigh. The pasta is homemade. The broccoli is outstanding. The service is magnificant. The owner is there quite often. The artwork is done (sometimes) by his wife and is quite good. It's got a great feel to it. The ambiance is... More

Enjoyed dinner with a large group (60 people). The staff did an excellent job and were very intensive and responsive to our needs and request. We had several choices for dinner and someone at our table tried each, all the choices were reported as good.
