delicious and authenticWe recently celebrated my daughter's graduation from NCSU. Caffe Luna went out of their way to make our dining experience very special! From the service, to the food, everything was excellent! We will visit again as much as possible!!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways the BestCaffe Luna always delivers for us. Reservations are handled by staff (Brent in particular) well. Service is always professional (all staff are well trained), I suggest the penne cappasante (sic) or lasagna, House chianti is excellent.
We will be back!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMCaffe Luna is Always DependableCaffe Luna has been around for years, has quite reasonable prices, very good service, the food is always fresh and authentic, with reasonably sized portions. If you need to make a concert time, you can be in-and-out quickly, but not feel rushed. Free parking across the street is a welcome extra. An old standard that never goes out of style!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had family in town andWe had family in town and wanted a good place for Saturday evening meal. We've been multiple times before, but not recenty. We were reminded how much we enjoyed the food. Everyone loved the meals. And making reservations via Open Table was very convenient.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AManother winner!If you haven't tried Caffe Luna, you're missing a great experience. This was our [group of 4] 5th visit in about a year and each one has been throughly enjoyable.
The service [John K was our waiter] was excellent as usual. The food was fantastic. We had calamari fritti and the smoked salmon as appetizers. For dinner, was carbonara, bistecca luna and fiocchi. The carbonara was the best I've eaten anywhere, creamy smooth with just enough cheese, loaded with bacon and perfectly cooked pasta.The fiocchi deserves special note. I've had it and it is delicious.
Additionally, we all split a bottle of chianti which went very nicely with our dinner selections. Dessert was tire mi su and tartufo, both excellent.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFine dining with an urban flairI have never been disappointed with the food or service at Cafe Luna. This a great place to take your special someone.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful as always!Caffe Luna is quickly becoming my favorite affordable upscale hole in the wall. Every time I go, I am given a wonderful experience. Parker (the owner) always comes over and welcomes you and sincerely treats you like family. The service is wonderful. I always want to request a certain waiter but forget and whoever we end up with is equally as genuine and pleasant. The food has never disappointed, and as an ex-Yankee, my expectations for Italian food are high!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service are ALWAYSThe food and service are ALWAYS excellent.

Great ambiance, delicious food, and attentive service. The only downside was being placed at a very small table along the wall when the majority of the restaurant was open.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFun night outWe had a group of seven for a Saturday evening birthday celebration. Even with arriving about ten minutes late, we were greeted and seated right away with no problem. The restaurant is in a very cool, old building with high ceilings, beautiful wood floors, and windows looking out onto the Raleigh street scene. The service was personal, informative, and accommodating. Salads offered interesting combinations. Main dishes were fresh and flavorful. If anything, portions were oversized-the college-aged boys at the table were the only ones who could finish their entrees; most salads and entrees could have been easily split between two adults.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOur food and service was excellent.Our food and service was excellent. My of the menu dish was more favorful than the special my husband ordered. But his was still very good.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe lasagna is incredible,The lasagna is incredible, as is the Irish Bash desert. Salads are solid if not out of the box, pasta dishes are huge and, so far, all delicious. Favorite is the Farfalle w/ salmon. The creativity level isn't out of the park but the delivery is solid and on point every time, great place for proper higher-end comfort food.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMCrowded, obviously popularCrowded, obviously popular restaurant, as a result quite noisy.

The food was fantastic and the waitstaff was very attentive. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI had the fish feature andI had the fish feature and it was terrible. The other people that ate off the menu was good.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI ordered one of the 3 specialsI ordered one of the 3 specials of the day which was a pasta with shrimp, mushrooms and asparagus. The sauce had a great flavor but I was disappointed in the shrimp. The shrimp were small, limp and tasteless. They should have been at least of medium size and firm and fresh. Service and atmosphere were great.3/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
