Authentic Italian Cuisine 1/27/2006

Caffe Luna, located downtown on Hargett Street, is owned by Parker Kennedy. This restaurant is no chain. Parker opened the restaurant in 1996 after twenty years in the wine business. He is an expert in italian wines and cuisine and speaks the language. His wife’s art work blesses the walls of this little trattoria. Caffe Luna has seating for 200 people and can hosts weddings and other parties. more

Cool atmosphere 12/11/2005

I first "found" Caffe Luna on a girl's night out with a friend. We were driving around downtown and were immediately pulled in by the warm and inviting decor of Caffe Luna. With high ceilings and warm walls, the restaurant is still cozy inside. The wait staff was pleasant and not pressuring at all on the subject of drinks or appetizers. On a later visit I had the mozarella appetizer and it was pretty good. My favorite entree is the Italian sausage and shells; though there is no sauce, the slightly spicy kick of the sausage permeates the pasta noodles and broccoli, making it a very flavorful dish. The desserts I've had are also good. One of the best things about this place is what deal it is - even with appetizer and dessert split between two people, you can easily get out for under $20 per person. In fact, our particular meal was cheaper than comparable meal at a chain casual-dining restaurant. Affordable and lovely experience. more

Great food, location, and atmosphere 7/31/2005

Located near Exploris in a corner of Moore's Square, Caffe Luna offers authentic Italian dishes that are consistently very good. The Farfalle al Salmone is a personal favorite. Over the years they have acquired extra space by adding on rooms, which allows them to accomodate even larger parties. The paintings that adorn the walls are works by the owner's wife and partner, and help to evoke a Mediterranean mood. Very good selection of Italian wines. more

  • In Short
    Caffe Luna could be an ultra-trendy trattoria, but the atmosphere is too comfortable and the service too sincere. Arched doorways, picture windows and high ceilings, however,...
