Over priced. Waitress ignored us. Mediocre food. Charged us for something we never got. Left seafood out of meal that should have been included. Never apologized.

First time at Luna and very disappointed. We were served horrible pan rolls instead of a nice Italian roll. Food was ok but no “wow” factor. Very small portion of raviolli.

We initially were going to try the wine/2 entrees special but the meal options are very limited and only one of us drinks so we decided to order off the menu. Service was not terribly attentive and it was not at all busy; adequate is stretching it. We were through our meals before he even came back to see if it was satisfactory. We had to wave him down to get water and drink refills. Basically he could have cared less.

Food....this is purportedly an Italian restaurant; we asked finally for bread and got....2 soft dinner rolls that looked like they were from Publix’s buy one get one free. The table next to us had the same reaction except he literally tossed his back on the plate. This is inexcusable. I asked for light/minimal dressing on my salad...very specifically...it came drenched and goopy. The chicken parm was adequate and I thought the picatta was quite good.

Entree prices are average..$20 to $30. It’s sad, a dining “deal” is not worth it if the service and food is average to below average. So many things could be easily fixed....but with all the Italian restaurants in Naples, I doubt this one will last at this location either.

Loved everything about Café Luna but the boisterous voice of the bartender that filled the entire bar area....although not crowded at all, there was an continuous animated conversation and laughter with him and a few folks at the bar....very distracting to customers looking for a quiet dinner...next visit we'll sit in the dining room! Julie our waitress was wonderful!

Food was very good. We had the special-2 meals with a bottle of wine $34.99. Actually, without the deal, meals average about $17 so you're really just getting a free bottle of wine. The people who work there are gems. They're very professional and gracious.

Nothing special. In order to have their Happy Hour cocktails you have to sit at a booth or high top table. Problem with that my husband has a knee replacement and it is very hard for him to get his legs to the chair. Our friend’s husband is way overweight and cannot fit into a booth.

They were out of one entree (notified after order was placed) and one wrong entree was brought, but my table mate was too hungry to wait for the replacement. Both understandable issues, but disappointing when you go there because you are craving one particular dish.

Went for Mother;s Day in the early afternoon and it wasn't crowded. The special of two dinners and a bottle of wine for #34.95 is a great value. Can upgrade if desired. Calamari was done perfectly. Would highly recommend this restaurant as we have been there several times and always enjoyed it.

the rigatoni with vodka sauce was not that good.
The sauce seemed to be too thick and the sausage was plentiful but bland.
I would not order this entree again.

Great food and a VERY patient waiter! we were not the easiest group to wait on and our waiter had the patience of a saint. the food was all delicious. Some of us had scrumptious fresh salads for dinner and others had the chicken parmesan which was also excellent. I tried a side of the risotto and that too was prepared to perfection. we enjoyed the dinner combo that included a bottle of wine. Great meal, nicely priced and a fantastic waiter. not a fancy dinner BUT all around excellent.

This was the first time we visited Cafe Luna for dinner. Ordered veal piccata which was excellent. Had a side of garlic knots which were wonderfully tasty but definitely full of garlic! Will be back to this neighborhood gem.

Janell was an excellen waitress. She was very personable and knowledgeable about the food and wine. I was there with my husband celebrating my birthday and she couldn't have done enough for us. I would highly recommend this restaurant to our friends and hopefully she ( or Tim) will be working.
I am 100% Italian and found the chicken parmesan was as good as 'Nonna made'. Can't wait to get back to Florida. This is a definite keeper!
In closing, the best thing about Janell is: She's from Massachusetts!!!

It took us a long time after they opened to decide to try it......wish we'd done it sooner.
It was really good....great selections....good service. We did go early and managed to avoid the big crowds that were entering. Only complaint, and this goes for many Naples restaurants, is that since we're early diners, places are not very crowded when we enter, but, they always seem to seat us in the worst seats (in front of or next to the kitchen or bathroom doors , etc..) Not a great idea, especially since we dine out every night. We'll definitely return here and hopefully get a better table. (We had reservations.)

Cafe Luna is located perfectly for North Naples when you don't want to do people watching on the street while enjoying a delicious meal.
Veal is usually on one of our plates when we dine anywhere and Cafe Luna is VEALLY good!
