    We had a group of 5- the ambience was energetic- it was a little loud so that needs to be taken into account. We had an 88 yo with us and it was probably too loud for her-we were seated out side near the sidewalk. The food was awesome- great pizza sauce and marinara sauce! Salads were great as well as drinks! It is now on our list of one of our 'go to" restaurants! Also Dee Dee was awesome waitress!!

    Really good Italian food at this downtown Naples restaurant. The two dinners and bottle of wine special for $30 can't be beat. Great spot for people watching. The garlic knots are yummy also. Very busy spot so recommend making reservations.

    Shared a small Caesar, Cecchi wine and two entres of clams w/white sauce. At least a dozen clams in the shells served w this dish. Delicious. Our waiter, Art was excellent. We had a great table outside. Request outside seating.

    Service was prompt,friendly and efficient. My dinner (eggplant) was all mushy bread and not edible. My husbands veal was good and he finished it all. The waitress recognized the error and compensated with a choice of a bill reduction or dessert. I picked dessert. We have been to Cafe Luna frequently and will come back again.

    We were greeted by Dave, the Maitre 'd, in a warm and friendly manner. He advised us to make a reservation and to request outdoor seating, if we wanted it, and even a specific table. Our waiter, Courtney, who was from Jamaica, was competent, knowledgable, and personable. The Veally Good Deal food and wine were tasty, making this evening a good value and pleasant dining experience. I will definitely go back.

    My husband and I enjoyed our food, but the the two loud tables of women next to us did not make it very enjoyable. Also, the fan blowing really fast towards my head was not very pleasant and it made my food get cold really quick. We will be back, since we did enjoy our Caesar salads and veal Marsala.

    We came to the restaurant to see El Gato Solea, a great guitarist we heard was playing there. Wasn't too sure about the restaurant itself because I had seen mixed reviews. In the end, we were very glad we went. Our waiter was very nice, the food was good and the price was unbeatable for a Downtown Naples restaurant. The ambiance was great listening to the guitarist who was fantastic too. Really liked the place

    The food was fabulous. We upgraded one of our dinner salad to a wedge salad. That along with the included Cesar salad were both delicious, so was the bread. Our entees were the daily catch which was Red Snapper and Shrimp Scampi. Both portions were large... Leaving no room for dessert!!!

    Took our son, daughter-in-law and three granddaughters - ages 3, 5 and 7 - for dinner Fourth of July weekend. It is now our favorite place when they visit. The atmosphere was "energetic" enough that we didn't have to keep shushing the girls. The kids menu was very extensive - they each found something they enjoyed. Chef/owner Eddie and server Terry went above and beyond to make feel welcome. We will be back!
