A friend who lives in Charles Town recommended La Mezzaluna - I visited nearby Harpers Ferry with a friend and was looking for a good local dining spot. I was not disappointed. We had a short wait, which I expected on a Friday evening. We had the fettuccine Alfredo (very good) and manicotti (excellent). Service was pleasant and efficient. The restaurant is small and not very well marked - it is in a shopping center and the overhead sign just says "cafe." This is a good family-run Italian place: if you are tired of the big chains you will enjoy this.
