My husband and I had dinner here before heading to the IMAX and it was excellent. We started with the Fresca salad, then had Farfalle al Salmone (bowtie pasta and salmon) and Tortelli Crostacci (Fresh Pasta Stuffed with Lobster, Crabmeat and Prawns Sauté in Cream). Oh my, both dishes were delish! Crostacci was the favorite. We added a great bottle... More

Had some business associates in town for the day and suggested Cafe Luna based on many past positive experience. Reservations for 9 of us, service was excellent, the atmosphere was light and bright, perfect setting for a business dinner. The food was outstanding. The fried calamari appetizer was "melt in your mouth" good. I had the grilled salmon entree, the... More

We have often dined in this place and have never been disappointed in the food. It is open for dinner so reservations are a good idea as it is located near the opera, theatre and symphony as well as museums and large screen movie. Always good food and service

We ate here for "carbo loading" before Ironman 70.3. This was of course hi end carbo loading. I made the reservation through open table earlier, and we were seated promptly and the waiter appeared immediately. The menu was varied, but my wife and I both chose shrimp dishes. I had a wonderful penne pasta special with mushrooms that was amazing.... More

Some awesome service every single time we go in! The food is always good quality and pretty well priced for what they offer. The restaurant itself is also so cute, it's great for a night out. It's also surrounded by most of the great things in downtown so it's in a perfect location.

Although Raleigh offers many dining opportunities, Caffe Luna has been a favorite for several years. The Italian based menu offers some expected dishes but adds some specialities that give diners options. We enjoyed Veal Parmesean, an old stand-by, and grilled, seasoned jumbo shrimp with roasted asparagus, a lighter but equally delicious selection. The staff was genuinely helpful. They held our...

This has been one of our favorites for years. Parker runs an excellent restaurant. Food is delicious, service is attentive without being stuffy, and atmosphere is upscale and comfortably trendy without trying too hard. The Farfalle al Salmon and Taglerini del Golfo are our favorites. The calamari is also top notch. Wine list is great and not overly pricey. You... More

The food here looked amazing and tasted even better. We visited Caffe Luna for our pre-marathon meal. Smart choice. The food was spot on and the service top notch. The location is great for people watching as well.

Pleasantly surprised. I wasn't sure what to expect in an Italian restaurant in NC. I had a very fresh and yummy salad pastore ( with walnuts and goat cheese) and very large serving of pasta with spinach and scallops in an olive oil and garlic sauce. I would have loved to try a desert but I was too full. Maybe... More

We attended a wedding reception at Cafe Luna the first weekend of April and I was simply blown away by the place. The place has a very retro/turn of the century feel to it, and the atmosphere is the kind of dressy casual and the staff is super friendly and quite attentive, and the food - the food is fantastic....
