    Food and service were impeccable. I especially liked the fact that the kitchen was flexible regarding the sauces available for the various dishes. I don’t particularly like cream sauces, and the dish I ordered was also available with a fantastic tomato sauce. Overall, I highly recommend Cafe Luna.

    Only my second time at Caffe Luna and it confirmed my previous visit that it is very, very good. The value for money is outstanding. Both the food preparation and the service are excellent. The partners should be proud of their restaurant. Well done!

    Out of a table of 4, 2 felt their meals were good and the other 2 gave a poor rating and would not go back. The bread was cold and rather tasteless. The garlic was burned and the scallops were overcooked. We have eaten at Cafe Luna several times and always enjoyed the meals there - very disappointing. Perhaps it was because it was the week before Christmas and the place was very busy.

    We love Caffe Luna and always choose to have dinner there before a concert. Because of Friday night traffic we were late by a half hour, however they were able to fit us in right away upon our arrival. Service was prompt and friendly. Food was great.

    We went to Caffe Luna to celebrate a birthday. The ambience in the restaurant is very nice. The food was okay, not bad, just okay. The bread was cold - almost like it just came from the freezer. We were a party of 5. Two of us had the lasagna and it was good but not great. The server brought our food out, laid it on a serving table and it sat there for a few minutes until someone realized it hadn't been served to us. I understand the restaurant industry is still recovering from Covid and has staff shortages. Overall, it was okay.
