Wow...we ate here a year or so ago, and I wanted to share what happened to us! I still can't believe it...everything was going great until we got our food. I ordered a rib eye. It came a bit later than my husband's food, but we made no mention of it. However, it was an omen as to what was... More

Been there numerous times. Quality excellent and delicious. Very reasonable. They make me a spaghetti putanesca even though it's not on the menu. Their service is very attentive. The owner is always making sure the clients are happy. Will be going back next week. I am having putenesca withdrawal.

I have only eaten here at lunchtime and it has always been busy. I have tried just about everything on their lunchtime menu and have no complaints except I found the lasagna to have waaaaay too much sauce and not enough actual lasagna. The atmosphere is pleasant and the decor is pleasing. Tables are rather packed in together, so if... More

We had the opportunity to have dinner at Caffe Luna the other evening with some friends. We've been there before and it was wonderful. It is reasonably priced with a limited but decent reasonably priced wine list and a broad range of menu offerings. The menu changes, but all good. The room can be loud and a bit cramped between...

We arrived at Caffe Luna and were promptly seated. We ordered a glass of wine, which was brought promptly. Our server came by with a basket of good looking bread and some olive oil. I asked for butter and was told that they did not serve it. I asked if they cooked with it and she said yes they did... More

party and of eleven so we pre-booked, table waiting upon arrival. Friendly, attentive staff. Large selection on menu... And not just your standard Italian food, if you have a starter, entree and dessert you'll be waddling home! The food was tasty and reasonably priced with entrees ranging from $13.95 a $17.95. Decor has authentic Italian ambience and is also bright... More

The food was fantastic, but our waitress kept us waiting! Also, she did not even bring something we asked for at all. It was a busy night as there were a few large parties.

My husband and I have eaten at a variety of Italian restaurants worldwide and our dinner at Caffe Luna ranks in the top 5 and that is saying something if you have ever eaten your way through Italy! I rarely eat everything that is served to me while dining but there was not a bite left when we finished our... More
