We went with a few adults and two kids and ate outside - nice setting and service. One veal pasta dish was a little too smoky tasting (the peppers?) but the calamari, yellow snapper, ravioli and veal parmesan were all very enjoyable. I would certainly go back and recommend this spot.

Caffe Luna Rosa is a waterfront
Caffe Luna Rosa is a waterfront favorite ... always great service, wonderful food, and unbeatable atmosphere across from the ocean. Dined there both Friday & Saturday evening!

delicious italian food on the beach
The food is wonderful, I'm on a diet and was worried about what to eat, to my pleasant surprise there was a Weight Watchers menu on the back page that told me how many points were in each entree!

Luna Rosa has the best breakfast/brunch in Delray Beach. And you are sitting looking at the ocean while enjoying wonderful food. And they are well know for their pasta, as they are an Italian Restaurant. Great Pasta (especially the A La Vodka), great fish also.
5/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Waiters are average, in spite of working they are looking at people passing by

Service & ambience great.
Service & ambience great. Food is Ok to good but overpriced like everything on Atlantic & A1A in Delray; would recommend because UNLIKE everyone else in Delray, I thought that the service @ this restaurant was terrific and staff very friendly, efficient and knowledgable

see by the sea
Because of the rain we ate inside with a beautiful view of the ocean. Lamb chops cooked to perfection as were my scallops.

6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Greatly enjoyed our evening at this Delray Beach gem. Excellent ingredients create excellent dishes. Pollo pancetta and burrata special appetizer are well worth the drive.

Evening started on the right
Evening started on the right foot when the host, Franco, warmly welcomed us to the restaurant. Franco is gregarious and seems to have fun with everyone who comes through the door. When I arrived I asked if a sidewalk table might be available with a short wait and although they were quite busy he was happy to accommodate us providing an excellent view of the Atlantic. Our waiter was also great as he was attentive and knowledgeable, and the food was simply outstanding exceeding expectations. Neither cheap, nor ridiculous, but in life you get what you pay for and if you're looking for excellent food, superb service, coupled with a nice view of the ocean, this one is worth it!

Another fantastic dinner!
We've taken each of our sons to Caffe Luna Rosa separately when they've come for a visit, and it's been a terrific experience both times. Great service, wonderful food - the snapper dishes are particularly amazing - and the views of the Atlantic are nice, especially if you get a window table. We love this place!!

We had a fantastic meal. Brought
We had a fantastic meal. Brought a couple of out of towners. The veal chops and the shrimp special were outrageously great. The shrimp looked like lobster. Food was fresh and reasonably priced. Service was great. Can't wait to come back.
6/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great causal Italian dining
Food was very good, causal atmosphere, across the street from the ocean with people watching. Staff very knowledgeable and attentive and very reasonably priced. We will return!
6/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great evening
Fantastic food. Outside watching people and the view. Made new friends. Service friendly and excellent
6/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Luna Rosa a gem
Sitting directly on A1A across from the beach this is a hot, jumping spot for both tourists and locals. There is a vibrancy and energy that makes it a fun place. The food is excellent, the service outstanding. If I had one complaint it would be the noise level inside a bit too high but not enough to be annoying.
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a wonderful birthday dinner. As always, excellent food and atmosphere. Fine view of the ocean. A happening place. Nicola, the excellent wine steward, talked with us and made an excellent dinner recommendation - branzini - prepared whole but fileted at our table. We had a wonderful time as we do when we visit Caffe Luna Rosa.

I was in Delray beach for
I was in Delray beach for 6 nights. We dined here twice as they were family friendly and were able to accomodate our kids of 2, 5, 10. The food was high quality and price was reasonable. I would return again if I go back to Delray beach.

The Best of the Best
Having traveled thru out the US, Canada and other parts of the world, you can place Cafe Luna Rosa right up there withe the other fine dining establishments found around the world. Although it is casual, everything about CLR is first class

Loved the food and the service. I will be baxk agian soon.

The food and service was excellent. The host on the other hand was VERY rude and ignorant!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a great time. Rebecca (only female waiter) was fantastic. Super service and delicious food. We had reservations at 7:30, but got there an hour earlier, and they took us no problem. The food was superb, their meatball appetizer was fantastic and the veal Marsala was delicious.
Tiramisu was authentic and home made........to die for!
Well done, and we are looking forward to our next visit.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We Will Be Back
Next time we will be back for dinner. This is a hidden gem and now I know why it's one of the highest rated restaurant in the area. We will be back again for brunch, lunch and dinner.

Oceanfront (ish) casual dining
We always enjoy breakfast at Cafe Luna Rosa. They are located across the street from the beach. There are only glimpses of water from the tables however and the street is quite busy with traffic. That being said, the food, service and overall efficiency of this establishment more than makes up for it. Usually quite busy, it is well known to the locals. My wife loves their blueberry pancakes and I usually am more than happy with an omelet. The coffee is outstanding. It is really a terrific place to come for breakfast. Beware....we were 8 minutes late and our table had already been given away. Show up on time or be prepared to have to wait.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Luna Rosa provides consistently great food, service and value. We have dined there on numerous occasions at different times of the year and the results are always the same. Go, you will not be sorry!!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Italian food
Excellent meal. Wait staff was too busy so service was a little less than excellent.
8/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
We love Caffe Luna Rosa!! Brought guests who also enjoyed it very much!!!

Best eggplant rollatini
I judge Italian restaurants by their Eggplant Rollatini and Caffe Luna Rosa scores 5 stars! I've only had as good in one of the best restaurants in Rome. I'd definitely go again. Everyone loved the restaurant atmosphere, location, service and food. There were 5 of us and each of us chose something very different for dinner - fish, chicken, prime rib - there is even a weight watchers menu. Dessert was delicious - had the cheesecake and the chocolate mousse layered dessert. They have valet parking for $5 located on Atlantic by the corner of South Ocean Blvd.

60th Anniversary Dinner
This was a 60th wedding anniversary dinner with my parents who enjoy traditional Italian food. Frank, the head concierge, took care of with our special request to be seated indoor but at the cabana opening in order for my parents to have a nice view of the ocean. Sean our waiter took care of us, the food was delivered promptly (we had 5:30 PM reservations), and the food was delicious. My father ordered the Zuppe di Pesce and my mother and I each ordered the Yellowtail snapper. Portions were generous. The bar area is small but each seat at the bar was occupied for Happy Hour (4-6pm), a good local spot on AIA.
A good choice and you will not be disappointed. Delray Beach.
Prices are fairly reasonable $$-$$$.

Great Service and Food
We just moved to Delray and had heard that Luna Rosa was a great place to go near our house. It did not disappoint. My husband our friend had the Prime rib special that was seasoned and cooked to perfection. I had their pasta with Lamb Ragu and it was tasty with just the right amount of sauce. Rebecca was attentive and made good suggestions. We will be back often.

Caffe Luna Rosa
I celebrated my birthday here with friends. Food and service were good. It was a quiet, rainy Sunday evening and we had a cozy booth in the back of the restaurant. The waiter put a candle in my Tiramisu which was delicious!
9/14/2013 5:00:00 PM

The view is great and the food is also. I had the veal marsala and the taste was perfect and the portion was large. I would reccomend it to all I know.

Always a nice experience
Been here several times over the past 8 years and always for dinner. Bar can be busy and it is rather small - but it makes for the "action" of being in a hip place - facing the beach - and off the bustle of Atlantic Avenue. Outdoor dining here is great as opposed to doing it on Atlantic and breathing in the long line of automobile exhaust fumes! Food ranges from great to nothing special - depends on the dish and how you are feeling. Staff is very attentive and engaged in the experience. Reservations a must during prime time!
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food and menu selection
The food was excellent and was an extremely enjoyable dinner. I will certainly go back again. Leave this for special occasions - the menu is a little on the expensive side (mid 20's and up for dinner entrees). Certainly a worthwhile place to dine.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Street side tables beach view
I enjoyed the warm fall evening breezes while the attentive waitress and wait staff served the delicious Monday night special Zuppa Di Pesce With Lobster Tail over linguini with red sauce. The dish was perfectly prepared accompanied by fresh baked bread with roasted garlic oil for dipping. The menu has a great selection of fresh fish and Italian dishes that I plan to return many times. Overall a very enjoyable evening that would only have been better if my wife was with me!

Great spot across from the beach
Join the VIP Club and get 2 for 1 lunch during the week.
Also get a Birthday dinner.

Cafe Luna Rosa worthwhile
The food was excellent, but the owner/manager not appreciated. He tried to convince us we were not getting rained on, when we were. The fish special was just superb!
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Beautiful view of the ocean
A lovely dinner. Delicious Italian food. We ordered three appetizers between us and it was more than enough. The bread was worth every calorie. And the meatballs were the best I even had!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
we will go again
First time we ate at Luna Rosa. The fried artichoke appetizer was excellent, enough for two. I had the mussels over pasta, very good, rather pricey however. My wife had the chicken piccata. Though good it had way too many capers which greatly diminished the dish.
Cheese cake for dessert was average. Drinks and bar service were very good.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delicious as ever
Chef Ernesto did an amazing job as always. I've eaten here many times and never had a disappointing meal. The view is great. It's right on A1A next to Atlantic Beach. I took my fiancé there on our first date, and now we go there on special occasions. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone's the only knock on Luna Rosa is the waiters can be curt and un engaging, but the food is the main plus here.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
ALL IN ALL WAS A VERY GOOD

Food was very tasty and well prepared. Just disappointed that my entree was just above like warm when served. My bad for not telling the waiter.
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
a nice place but dont rile the mgr
The manager needs a different approach when apprehending a customer regarding a particular coupon after a dinner.
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Dined early on a Sunday evening in mid-December. Not crowded plus it was a beautiful evening. Server was very helpful. Food was was verygood. Well definitely return.
