good food

Food is always good. Service is spotty, and you probably won't get a visit from the owner as he browses around to the tables unless you are a VIP in his eyes!

We've eaten at Caffe Luna prob 4 or 5 times over the last 10 years. Most recently in March 2012. We have yet to have a bad experience or meal here. The staff is all very inviting from the time you walk in, throughout your dining experience, and even when you leave. The food and wine selections are all diverse... More

My husband and I stopped in during the lunch hour to take a look at their dinner menu. My husband took a look but I was too put off by the aroma of the place that I could not stay. Can't explain it but I didn't get the garlicky aroma of an Italian Kitchen from the place.

cute cafe, good food! I would recommend, but it is a little hard to spot so look for the moon in the window.

Always outstanding. Delicious food, reasonable prices, and the proprietor, Parker Kennedy, is the perfect host. His wife, Nicole, paints all the beautiful artwork around the restaurant - it's worth going in just to see it. Also a great place to host a fundraiser, reception, or a brunch. The restaurant has several different rooms to accommodate parties of different sizes.

Having moved from Raleigh after 37 years, on every trip back Caffe Luna is one of our top choices. Atmosphere, taste of the food, the staff, owner all top notch.

I usually don't go out for Italian food, but I had heard so many good things about Caffe Luna that I had to try it. Finally went with a Meetup group and loved it. Everyone loved their meals and the portions were a good size. I got the salmon, which was cooked perfectly (I did request that it be cooked... More
