A pleasant surprise that exceeded expectations on our most recent trip to Raleigh. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner (Parker) who was very hospitable and engaging. We will return.

Wonderful food and service. I was greeted warmly by name upon entering the restaurant and seated promptly. Food was properly prepared and was well presented and delicious as always. Both the owner and manager came by to check on us.

My favorite spot for dinner in Raleigh.

Our server absolutely phenomenal! He was attentive, informative, and all around very helpful. I believe his name was Cory. (I have an awful memory when it comes to names. We all demolished our insanely delicious meals. It was my Fiancé’s birthday and everyone there made her feel very special. 10/10 would definitely go back.

Fantastic service as always from the time I entered the restaurant, as a regular customer I was greeted by name at the door.

I usually come for the tuna but for this trip I opted for a sirloin special. It came out properly cooked and was delicious.

Food was awesome and they had lots of gluten free options and good portions! It was very nice and had a great aesthetic. The appetizer we got (tomatoes and mozzarella) was not super impressive and wasn't worth it, but our meals were great.

Love the dining room and service. I wish the food was less salty. The first taste is delicious, but by half way through the dish it was a bit much

The food was definitely subpar (cold, not very tasty or unique). The worst part was our waitress would not stop rushing us through the meal and came to our table approximately every 2 minutes to ask if we were ready to order to to try and clear dishes that were clearly uneaten. The dessert was wonderful but that was the only part we enjoyed.

Valentine’s Day dinner was great. We got our reservations earlier and sat in a quieter spot. Ordered the two specials and an appetizer. Service was prompt and the experience exceeded my expectations compared with the costs.

Food was okay. Honestly surprised by how small the portions were, and the salad was only “dressed” with vinegar. Other than that, good and fast service, and nice scenery.

Everything was just okay on our visit to Caffe Luna. My husband ordered Farfalle al Salmone which had good flavor but was cold! I ordered the Lasagne and it was very soupy. We each ordered a caesar salad and it arrived on a small plate with lettuce, croutons, very little cheese and hardly any dressing; had to asked for more dressing and asked for more cheese, they brought the graded parmesan cheese that goes on a pizza instead of the fresh shredded. Our waitress had the personality of a wall and the guy that brought the food pretty much waited on us with everything that we needed through service. I would rather go to Mulino Italian Kitchen & Bar or Amalia's Authentic Italian Restaurant and pay more money for better quality and service.
