Pulled in the parking lot at 4 on a Friday afternoon. Only two persons there. By the time we left at 4:45, the parking lot was full and there were people outside waiting to get in. You can get take out, but by 7 pm they have to take the phone off the hook. Small place, nine tables. Oh. The food. As good as it gets. It's a 45 minute drive for me, but well worth it. Go early. No liq licence, but I think this place is the finest Italian around. I had spicy sausage with broccoli over angel hair. large portion. $17 included small salad. Pasta perfect. Good sausage. I'll get two meals out of it. Did I say go early?

So surprised! Such a delicious meal!

I was "...along for the ride..."; didn't know the restaurant and went with friends from Harrisburg, who HAD heard great recommendations about the Moonlight Cafe.

The dining area is small, packed with diners, yet conversation with your table-mates is not difficult nor drowned by the noise of other patrons having good times. The wait staff was prompt, informed and very engaged in providing good service. We had come for dinner - the choices were varied and quite sufficient in number.

The meal was SPLENDID! Each of our orders was perfectly prepared and flavored. By the end of the meal, we had all shared tastes of our dinners, so we had a well-rounded impression of the menu offerings.

The chef/owner is a lively, personable man who clearly loves his establishment and clearly enjoys his work. We asked to speak to him personally in order to convey our great pleasure with the food and service.

We will certainly go back! You should go, too - it's great!

It's a tiny little place tucked away and hard to find. The food is very good and the prices fair. I expected larger portions, but they were certainly reasonable. I think they have a site license so you can BYOB, but they don't sell. I suppose i've been spoiled by the tiny cafes in Boston, but around here...this place is a gem!

Moonlight Cafe is the best kept secret dining establishment in York. The food is outstanding! Try the Bruschetta or the Calamari as an appetizer, both are the best I have ever had. My family loves this place. The staff is the best around, from the waitstaff to the Chef, you will be treated just like family. We bring our own wine and enjoy our dinner every time. The food is cooked to order and comes out piping hot..and the Chef makes dishes that you can't get anywhere else. Chicken dishes, gourmet sauce, homemade Tiramisu...and espressos. Bring cash because they do not accept credit cards, and sometimes it can be a wait for a table. I have seen many people enjoying their dinner, and the staff is on first name basis with a lot of their clientele. We can't say enough good things about this establishment.

We take of work half an hour early just so we can be the first people to get there. There isn't a lot of room but the food is so excellent nobody in the family minds. Not even our thirteen year old daughter! We have recommended this cafe to everyone of our friends and family. We have given out gift certificates to many of our friends also. Every dish I have tried is absolutely wonderful.

A gem of a restaurant just south of the Dover square. Many delicious choices including lasagna and chicken Marsala. The restaurant is small but clean. Waitstaff is knowledgeable about the menu. Meals are prepared as ordered. Treat yourself to canolli for dessert. BYOB

Tiny parking lot. Only a few tables. But incredible food! No wonder people are talking about this place. I can't resist the chicken marsala panini at lunch. And any pasta dish is incredible for dinner. Be sure to leave enough time - you may have to wait for a table, but it will be worth it!

I promise you will not find Italian food like this anywhere around these parts. Creative Chef meals, open kitchen to smell the aroma's of all ingredient's being used. Come early to get a seat. Again, no betting Italian cooking thank this. Large portions, friendly and responsive service, and a great atmosphere for a great price.
