Down-home Italian - Authentic and Unpretentious

La Mezzaluna Café in Charles Town doesn’t look like much from the outside. The exterior entrance is just one more storefront in a row of similar entrances located in a strip mall. The sign declares simply "Café" and leaves it at that. Once inside, the prospects are more encouraging. This isn’t a... read more

Been here twice and this is a great Italian restaurant! Both times were great. Staff is friendly and fast and the food is authentic and just awesome! Don't let the low prices fool you...this is great food for a very reasonable price. The Manicotti is my favorite - you won't be disappointed. Dishes are coupled with garlic knots and salad...fresh...

Even when the restaurant is crowded (as it often is), the staff does an excellent job. The food is always delicious and the best Italian food in the tri-state area. Totally worth the wait to get in - you'll think your in a high-end DC eatery.

We wre a large party which included kids and would say the service was good, food came fast, portions were large. The food quality was lacking. Perhaps adding some fresh vs frozen processed items would help.

Fine Italian food, good service, and easy to get to. Enjoyed the experience. A cut above average and a good experience. Would come back.

My mother, kids & I went there during a non peak time (AZ time difference for us). The waitress was fantastic, listened & have us several recommendations on what to eat. We ended up ordering bodies with pink sauce and my kids a cheese pizza. Garlic knots were served hot with a scrumptious salad. Then our meals were served hot... More

We just had dinner at La Mezzaluna, and won't be returning. I ordered the scampi, and it came with 6 small shrimp that obviously had been frozen. The dish had a good flavor, but $19 is a high price for less than fresh shrimp. My husband got the veal carnivale, and was also not impressed. It was disappointing, since we... More

Service is usually better than average being that it is quick and the servers are always within ear-shot. Inside is okay and I have always found the place clean. Carry out is okay but the containers they use are terrible as they collapse when stacked and your food ends up in the bag. So I remove the food container from... More
