Honestly, it took us a moment to enter. The decor is inner-city Italian. But as soon as the waiter, the owner, or everyone else greets you, you feel welcome. And the food doesn't change that impression: a good selection of pasta and meat dishes. We tried the special: a tender juicy chicken breast with cheese and mushrooms and enjoyed every bite. Except the mashed who were on the cool side; but still ok. Will we come back? Certainly

Sole Luna Cafe is so handy because it is right by the hotel I stayed at. The inside looks a little bit weird I could say and iffy. But the patio and front were nice especially in the summer. Food is great as well as drinks and the staff even remembered me! Service was awesome.

Have yet to find anything we did not like. Love the thin crust pizzas and the specials are always good and the serving is abundant. Sadly we were unable to eat here on the last visit because someone damaged the front door. Remember that there are different regions in Italy and their Marsala is a red sauce while mine at home is a wine & mushroom, but still very good

So the decor is like Milano modern but the service was homey and welcoming. We walked in and were treated like "family." The smells coming out of the kitchen were wonderful so we order Cannelloni and a mushroom pizza. The food was very good except for the pizza crust, which was spongey, not crusty or yeasty.
I'll go back here; the prices were reasonable, the service excellent and the food was very good.

The manager at our hotel suggested we try it out and the food was excellent and bested only by the service. Terrific waitress and the Owner/bartender from Italy was an interesting fellow who spent at least 30 minutes visiting with us. The prices were cheap considering the quality and presentation.
