Really not a fan bad pizza sauce small about of toppings. Rude waitstaff. We won't be coming back the only reason we went was one of us had been there before. He said it had changed a lot and not for the better

I've been to Moonlight several times and I've never had a bad meal. The service and the atmosphere is casual, so don't come looking for a quiet date night place. (You could still count it as a date night destination, but only if you're looking for fun and funky, not quiet/romantic.) The staff is always pleasant and attentive and, again,... More

This is a find. A little off the beaten path of Glenwood et al but still easy to get to, etc. Atmosphere is nice, we ate outside and it was quiet and nice. Pizza was great service likewise.

We have visited twice now and Moonlight is consistent for quality of food, atmosphere and service. The pizza is excellent - I appreciate the fact that the crust is cooked perfectly and holds up tot he ingredients. Hot and tasty - the first bit of each slice is perfect, and the goodness continues. The "braided" edge makes it easy to... More

I have been wanting to eat at this place for 4 years now. We live just next to Wake Forest in North Raleigh and Moonlight is in the city. My son chose for us to sit outside on their patio. We were made very comfortable sitting in the shade under an umbrella. All the food is delicious! (They were out... More

Took friends to Moonlight to celebrate a birthday on 8/14/15. Venus pizza is the best anywhere. BUT, the salad ($3.90) that I ordered had yellowish brown lettuce, one tiny piece of mushroom, and a sliver of tomato. Should have charged a quarter for it. Halfway through the meal another Margarita was ordered. Waited and waited but it never came. If... More

This is not pizza hut. Moonlight has many specialty pizzas but you are not going to find very much in the line of cookie cutter delivery classics. What you will find is hand made pizza on hand made crust with fresh toppings and robust flavor. The pizzas are good sized for sharing with one or two friends. This is a... More

We have dined here quite a few times and have never been disappointed. Have tried almost all their appetizers and quite a few of their pies. This last time we dined outside on the outdoor patio area. It was a perfect night outside.

I have this fight a lot! People think the best pizza in Raleigh is Lily's and some even claim Trophy is the best now, but Moonlight is my jam! I have an affinity for the building too! When I was 3, this was my dance/art studio...it's where Arts Together used to reside. I think it's pretty cool to eat in... More

This is almost a mom and pop operation except it's runs by a group of young pepole and so the atmosphere and the menu are acordingly. The pizza I had, a variation on a California pizza was very tastey, unfortunately the avocado wasn't of the best quality. One big miss as I see it. On the wine list there was... More
