  • "The second time we have been to Cafe Luna while in Naples vacationing. Always one of the busiest spots on 5th. Great Italian food, "Veally" good dinner deals."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "We were seated near the kitchen and were in the path of the waiters delivering food in a timely manner during a busy evening,. Distracted by the activities. Food mediocre and prices competitive. Waiter was very nice and trying to accommodate us during a busy seasonal evening. Matre' D mentioned to request outdoor dining on the comment section during open table online request. I appreciate his advice. Plan to do this next time!"

  • "We've eaten at Cafe Luna many times, food always fresh, good value, nice size portions. Dinner with wine special well worth the price. Inside can be a little hectic, service always prompt and very personable servers. We will be returning often."

  • "Great food, wonderful service, super location, energetic ambience, not to mention reasonable! We loved it and would highly recommend it----everything was terrific! Our salads were perfect---my chicken piccata was scrumptious!"

  • "Our group thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and service. It was a beautiful evening to sit outdoors and 5th Avenue was, as usual, crowded and energetic! Cafe Luna is our favourite downtown restaurant, to which we often take our visitors and friends."

  • "The value is exceptional and it is a wonderful no frills neighborhood type of place."

  • "We've lived in Naples since 91 and have been here when there was just a couple of restaurants...now there's many to choose from and all types. Café Luna is an established Naples 5th Avenue eatery and has survived the years because as a customer, you can count on your dining experience to be first rate. Last week was no exception from the timeliness of our reservation to the wait staff to the quality and quaintly of Café Luna's food, the place just does not disappoint. We would highly recommend Café Luna as someplace you can count on whether it's for you personally or guests you may have in town...., .If you haven't been to Café Luna do yourself a favor and get a reservation."

  • "Service is quick and efficient. Food is generous in portions and served at the right temperature. Desserts are delightful. We like to splurge a little and upgrade the wine. Our favorite go to restaurant Sta before theater or meeting friends. The value is great and reservations are suggested in season."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "the hostess was friendly and helpful. a significant gluten free menu for my wife. Good bread and pasta for me. One note - the price of the "special menu" was actually more favorable than the price we paid through the coupon."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "Have been here quite a few times. They've expanded and still seem to retain the quality of the food. Of course, their $29.99 dinner special for 2 (2 entrees + bottle of wine) is the big draw. Fun place for 5th Avenue dining scene. We'll return, I'm sure. It's also a nice place to bring out of town guests."

  • "The scallop appetizer when it arrived late was cold and raw. Stay away."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "Cafe Luna was very busy, even on Sunday night. We were thankful we had a reservation. We were seated immediately. Cafe Luna on 5th feels like a genuine Italian cafe, tables are somewhat crowded in and chairs are the metal italian bistro style but very comfy thanks to cushions! We had some nice wine and then 2 at our table had the catch of the day special which was salmon w pesto on marinara, along w risotto and green beans. I and one other person had the shrimp fra diablo which was delicious with just the right amount of kick. Bread was fresh, hot and delicious. It was our first time eating here and I can see why people were lined up for it!"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "We were happy to find a restaurant where we could eat dinner at 11:00, after theater. The saltimbocca was good; the pasta that came with it wasn't. The Ceasar Salad was good."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We sat at the round table near the bar and kept getting bumped into. Very crowded and noisy. Food was okay."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Pouring buckets on this last Saturday night in March...however, we had a great table tucked in back by the bar and enjoyed a nice farewell dinner. Portions of veal and chicken parmesan were huge and delicious. Our waiter was attentive providing great service. It was extremely noisy as the rain pounded on the enclosure but it did not dampen our spirits. We shall return!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "This is a great Italian Resturant and it has a very large gluten free menu to choose from for your meal. The serving staff was very helpfull explaining the different options for the gluten free dinners. It was a very busy night but the server acted like you were the only table she was serving."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Very good food but very slow service on a busy night. Worth the wait."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Although the restaurant was full, the hostess immediately responded to a request to move us from a table on the busy central aisle outside to another outside table."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "The best restaurant on 5th ave for the money. The deals are confusing. But the staff are very accommodating and help explain everything. We upgraded our wine and food selection and were very pleased with everything. The place to dine on 5th ave south."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "This restaurant was good but not great. Good for outdoor dining. They put too many tables outside; was very crowded."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Can't beat the value of the "Veally Good Deal." If you don't find an entree to your liking on the basic VGD menu, you can upgrade to a variety of other choices for only $5.00. Plus the service is always good."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "It must be that when a restaurant begins to succeed they feel the need to squeeze. This place was a mad house and the seating areas outside are so cramped that you can barely move your arms. The hostess looked overworked and stressed and was not friendly toward the waiting customers. Our reservation was at 7:00pm and she actually seated people whose reservations were 15 minutes later before she seated us and that wasn't until one of the members of our party approached her on the matter. Not a relaxing dinner at all and entirely too crowded to enjoy."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The price attracted us to this place but the food was fairly average. Service was great and for the price it would be worth going back to."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We stay in Naples during the winters, yes we are snow birds. We find Cafe Luna a very special restaurant on fifth ave. It is very different than the standard high priced restaurants you find there. My wife and I go to Luna often during her shopping trips on 5th or 3rd . We enjoy the food, the menu selection and the prices are quite reasonable."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "With reservations we had a 35 min wait. I know it is "high season" but you would think with reservations you wouldn't have the long wait. Service was poor and long wait for dinner, the chicken and broccoli was something I will not order again."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "While in the Naples area for the past 2 months, we had the privilege of eating at Cafe Luna on 3 different occasions. Twice at a table on the outside, once in the inside of the Cafe. Service was great, our table was available exactly at the time of our reservation, and the surroundings were wonderful. We were always amazed at how quickly the tables were cleared and prepared for the next group in a very professional manner. We would not hesitate in recommending Cafe Luna to our friends. The only think negative about our experience is that we did not know about Cafe Luna until this year. For sure we will be back next year."

  • "Very busy spot, so do your self a favour and make a reservation or you could be standing outside in line for a while. If you are seated inside, or outside, it is loud. The food is very good and the portions are generous."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "food is good but service is not. We have dined here often when coming to Naples. We keep saying "one more try". The food is consistent its just the service seems to be getting worse. This time our meals were delivered and we had no flatware to eat it. We asked and asked and finally got it . Our food was sitting in front of us getting cold. Very frustrating."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "Very very busy, but they need more table waiters. I wanted some Parmesan cheese but only water server returned until waitress came to collect empty dishes. Overall great experience just extremely busy"
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Attempted to have lunch but it was very busy and service was very slow. We asked to be re-seated because patron at neighboring establishment was smoking a cigar. Hostess apologized and adjusted the fan but the cigar smoke lingered everywhere. It was not our best dining experience in Naples."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We enjoyed the food from "the veally good deal". Delicious pasta sauces. But there is a problem if you have an odd # of people ordering the special. Instead of splitting the deal as many other restaurants do, the single person has to order 2 meals and double drinks. Makes it difficult when there is an odd # wanting the deal."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Great food and terrific value with their Veally good deal!"

  • "Good deal, server was good, but a little noisy, maybe put less tables in there."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "We love this place - been there many times, always love to take our guests and visitors here, but this occasion was not up to the usual standards we've come to appreciate. We've always raved over the exceptionally outstanding service, terrific wait staff, excellent food, convivial atmosphere, and great value. Alas, not this time. We sat down at our table at 6:30 and didn't get out until 3 hrs later. Very slow service. I wanted to think it was a slow kitchen, maybe short handed in the kitchen, but we couldn't even get a check at the end of the meal. Of course this is the high season, but we've never felt so ignored before. I hesitate to give a review based on this experience, but we now hesitate to go back, for service like this."

  • "Four of us dined together. Our pasta and chicken parm dinners were well prepared and satisfying. We had the s dinners and a bottle of wine combo. It was very good. Our server had a long day starting with the St Patrick's Day Parade and by dinner he was wiped out so our service was poor. Un fortunate for us. Our guests were first time diners and we were repeat diners; however, food was good and we will retrun."
