    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!

    Every time we have been in Naples this place always has a line to get in so we wanted to try it. I would say it was very average. If you want good food with reasonable prices on 5th avenue then this is then place . They do have some special that comes with a bottle of wine and 2 meals for $29 so I think that is what packs the. In. Service was quick and everyone was very nice, our server was new so he was still learning. When our lobster raviolis came out served COLD. He did quickly get it replaced and even offered a free dessert. The mgr came over too. We wil add they had the most wonderfully, fattening, amazing bread called a. "Garlic knot" so get those for sure.

    With many excellent food choices in Naples Fl. I am glad we choose Cafe Luna. We had reservations at 8:30 but arrived early . They seated us immediately but too close to the speakers of the guitar player. They accommodated our request for a quieter location where we could easily talk. The service was outstanding. Jonathan was very attentive and very cheerful! When asked he would give his suggestions which were spot on perfect! We had five in our party and four of us chose from their special menu that included a bottle of wine for two. Every selection was authentically Italian! Each of us would return again, for an unhurried meal of outstanding value.
