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.

I went to lunch here with my niece and my sister. My niece recommend it after being a bridesmaid at a wedding that took place at the restaurant. I had the Pasta Granchio, and the crab was delicious and nicely seasoned. My niece had the Filleto De Spalla. She shared a bit of the beef and potatoes, and they were... More

Caffe Luna (or Cafe Luna if you insist on spelling it wrong) has been a cornerstone of downtown Raleigh for as long as I can remember. It has an authentic cafe feel with wood floors, table only seating, cloth napkins, and daily specials. Once seated you are immediately served water, which is almost an extinct practice which I appreciate. The... More

What a nice surprise to discover this charming, and delicious italian restaurant. The owner personally stopped by to say hello, and poured our wine. The wait staff was very attentive and food was served within a reasonable time. Finding a good italian restaurant in the Raleigh/Cary area has been a challenge for someone who loves italian, but who must also... More
