Diner Reviews
  • "I was looking forward to Bella Luna- it was a dinner for our anniversary and it had gotten some pretty good reviews. We weren't impressed with the service or the food. Overall, it was okay. Don't think we will go back."

  • "Great neighborhood dinning complete with excellent, attentive service. My date and I were there for hours and not once did we feel they wanted to turn the table. We were offered a standard menu as well as a price fixed menu. The Price fixed menu, which we both chose, provided plenty of choices and really good portions. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that Wednesday evenings (which this was) wine by the bottle is half priced, how can you go wrong. A good place to have a good dinning experience without breaking the bank."

  • "I had to find a last minute place to meet a group of friends for lunch. Since I knew that no one wanted to stand on one of the endless brunch lines, I tried to find something different. Bella Luna had a brunch menu, but their regular menu looked great and reasonable. Throughout the meal, people said, " Wow, this food is wonderful,", or " It's so nice that you can hear each other in here.", or "The waiter is so nice." We had a great bottle of wine, shared a dessert, and the bill for the four of us was about $85.00. Without the wine, we would have been looking at about a $55 bill for the four of us including a nice tip. I will definitely be back, often."

  • "So glad we decided to try this one. The food was delicious. Pasta sauces were amazing. My veal piccata was not the best, but I forgive them because the rest of the meal was fabulous!"

  • "I was looking for a good and reasonably priced restaurant to eat my favorite dish - veal piccata - in the Upper West Side. Wasn't in the mood to venture to Little Italy, Lower East side or crazy midtown. The service was outstanding and the veal was everything I expected it to be. Will definitely stop by here again."

  • "Bella Luna has been my and my husband's special place for years. Usually you don't have to make a reservation, but because it was Valentine's Day, I wanted to make sure we got a table. I made my reservations through opentable, however due to a computer glitch, they did not have our reservation. Because we are regulars and I had my email confirmation, we were assured that we would get a table. We waited maybe 10 minutes. Management and staff were great. They apologized for the inconvenience, they entertained our 16 month old and she entertained them as well. The food was delicious and I enjoyed the special "for her" Valentine's drink. Thanks to David for sitting us down so quickly and to Tim, the waiter we always ask for."

  • "Waitstaff was friendly. Food was good. Nice ambience. Def a decent little date-night place. The best part was the prices: $10 for a bowl of tasty pasta with fresh mozzarella and very good sauce. Dinner for two with one shared appetizer was $31. Can't beat that. Quibbles: bread with dinner would have been better had it been warmed up, and even better had they given us some olive oil to dip it in. We didn't drink, so we can't comment on wine/drinks. Overall, thumbs up."

  • "My second time in this restaurant and I never get disappointed. Excellent service, the maître d was very pleasant, greets you at the door,escort you at your table even deliver your food at the table because the waiter was not available. The most important is the food,I recommend to try black fettuccine Bella Luna shrimp,scallops,squids,tomato sauce, very delicious. The ambience is very relaxing,not too many loud art just subdued Italian Provence, big mirrors on the wall and variety of different wine displays. Great experience each time in this place. I will recommend this restaurant to my other friends and family."

We all ordered pasta! Excellent service, very attentive and the dessert was exceptional! Very reasonable for what you get - we recommend this restaurant and will definetely go back again!"

  • "Ate here during a trip to New York. Restaurant was in a decent location, safe etc. Welcome was pleasant and efficient. Food was well cooked, tasty and well presented. Would have liked a few more chicken based dishes but this is being nit picky. On the whole happy to recommend."

  • "A few years ago we dined at Bella Luna and were underwhelmed - in the last few months we returned and were so pleasantly surprised. The menu is interesting and the preparation is excellent. Every dish was delicious and well presented. The staff was excellent and helpful with suggestions. It's becoming one of our default dinner destinations."

  • "We just moved to the UWS and this place was recommended by our new neighboors. The past dishes very delicious and for UWS very well priced. Pasta was fresh and cooked al dente and for $10 a true bargain."

  • "I lived in the neighborhood 7 years ago and this was one of my favorite places to eat....I went back after all those years and it was still just as fabulous!! The menu is diverse in Italian dishes, but not overwhelming, the food is seasoned well, the portions are a perfect blend of enough to share a few bites but not so much you walk away overstuffed or loaded with take out and the staff is attentive without being overbearing, professional and courteous."

  • "We went here as a group of six. Most of us had the lamb pappardelle, which is excellent. The pappardelle special with shrimp was also delectable.The tiramisu was made fresh that day and was also excellent."

  • "I'm a regular at this UWS italian. My friend and I both had the linguini pesto with goat cheese, sun dried tomatoes and shrimp. My favorite! they have a great wine list with some pretty affordable selections and drink specials. Our waiter, Diego, was very attentive. I love how they show classic flicks on the screen and the open feel to the restaurant. They have a cute outdoor seating but we decided to eat inside this time as it was hot outside."
