Great Italian food from a great family that knows how to prepare it. The wine list is very italian with the reds being the majority of the selection and all of them are worthy of a try.
The Teramasu was the best I have had to date and as a birthday special it was even better.
Great Italian foor prepared by a great Italian family - the right way!

My guests from Chicago had the salmon special and raved about it. We were trying to catch up on our lives initially and the waiter gave us ample time before ordering. 5 stars.

Made reservations on open table for a birthday. We were early, not greeted but front was busy and a sweet older woman did see us and directed someone our way. Immediately seated after seeing our reservation then greeted by our server. Did not catch her name but she was very I formative with specials, when asked about an entree her description was spot on. She is the only star here. Ordered stuffed mushrooms. Okay. Very small mushrooms holding maybe a 1/2 teaspoon of stuffing? That is being generous. I ordered the shrimp with tortellini, kinda flavorless. Do they even use salt? Portion was average, shrimp was sizable. Tortellini was pretty good though but still lacking in flavor almost seemed that they were filled with plain ricotta nothing more. Generous with the cream sauce & large chunks of hard garlic. Hard, not cooked hard but hard like straight out of the bulb. My birthday guest had cheese ravioli with nothing more to say later that evening, would have tasted better breaded and fried with marinara. Our sever checked in on us multiple times asked our opinion if things were ok. Of course I say yes. I am a firm believer in not complaining in person unless absolutely needing attention. This will allow the staff, manager and servers to be themselves. I really wanted to like this place with its high marks. Must have been an off night for the cooks. Might try again. Maybe?

As part of our monthly date night, we make an effort to try new places for dinner and this visit was no exception.

The restaurant is welcoming with what appears to be the Owner serving as Host and general assistance in the flow of diners.

While the Service could have been stepped up just a bit, the wait times force you to relax, step back and enjoy wonderful food.

We tried the Zucchini and Cauliflower appetizers which were quite tasty, the warm slices of bread/oil and butter were most welcomed!

The Entrees, of which I can only remember mine, fully were the lamb chops, served with sweet potatoes and asparagus, tasty, tasty, tasty!~

The other Entree was some kind of Pasta with some kind of panchetta, I believe, either way, the plate was cleared.

Now the clincher, the Bread Pudding was STELLAR! We plan on returning on our next outing, but I would be content, even if I only came for the Bread Pudding.....

Many times bread pudding can be heavy and dense. This was magnificent!

Arrived at 7:05pm for out 7:15 reservation only to be greeted with a long line of both walk-ins and other reservoirs! Who appears to be the owner was slowly checking people in regardless of reservations!! All reservations were on an ipad but were then hand writen on 2 list? When we enquired why walk-ins were given preference to reservations this obviously out of her depth hostess was rude and refused to give a reasonable explanation!! We felt like reservations meant nothing! 1hr later we were finally given a table.... Lucky for us our server "Amay" who was new and enthusiastic turnen what was becoming a frustrating and disastrous evening around! She deserves to be running the front of house and the unfriendly/overwhelmed staff should step away!!

First off, I booked online several days prior to Xmas Eve. We got there on time but they had no record of not only us but ANYONE booking online nor by phone. Some people waited almost an hour to be seated with reservations. This was the 2nd & LAST time we will go there. It only took us about 15 minutes to be seated. The service is great, however, the food was mediocre at best especially for the price. We ordered the salmon oscar. It was just adequate. The decor screams, "hey, the 1980's want their walls & decor back" It's small & stuffy feeling. There is so much more they could do to improve this place with the clientele in this community that can certainly afford it. It's really sad, the owner could spend a little money & make this shine but is apparently a bit out of touch with keeping up to date.

Food and Value are great. Noise level became unbearable. We were two people, and finally had to quit talking. We were practically screaming to be heard. If we go again, it will be at a time when we can sit outside. Hopefully that will help. When we dine out, it's a rare special occasion. Ambiance is important to us.

Not greeted very promptly,made open dining reservation and listed 2 birthdays and was not recognized. I did not mention it to the server because I thought it would be recognized without even saying we didn't want dessert, just bring the celebratory item to the table without even asking, so I speculated the server was not advised. We had a good celebration last time there and also went thru Open table listing B days. The lamb chop special which has been the same, used to be good, lamb chops were cooked ok, but the overly sweet sweet potatoes and asparagus all floating in melted mint jelly was not very tasty.Leave out the sweet potatoes and put that jelly in a small bowl on the side. Mussels still good, veal was good, but have noticed a change going on here. Seems to have become a bit more generic than it used to be. Service was ok but not as attentive as it used to be. The bus person came by several times and I was not finished, it is a good thing to have good bus people but at the right time and don't pick up the dishes until all diners at the table are done, feels pushy doing that. Menu needs to get revised and specials need to be recreated.

Made reservation. On arrival found that they had no space and the wait would be as much as 30 minutes. No real explanation as to why reserved space was not available. Placed at a table by the entrance to the kitchen where I had service staff working hard not to collide with my back. The table for four should never be there. Waiter was the worst I have experienced anywhere in quite sometime. Took 15 minutes to get a drink order taken. Delivered three salads and forgot the soup. Did not bring bread until the salads were served which was about 30 minutes after we first sat down. Timing of service for rest of the meal was very slow, and we were offered no explanation, no apology for the time or anything. He did offer ersatz European brusque, surly disposition.

We have dined there many times over a 10+ year period. Service has always been good, the food is awesome. It was embarrassing to have taken out of town guests there after raving about the place and have such a dismal experience. If it was not for the food, we would probably never go back.

The food was definitely 5 star. My wife ordered the Chicken Special and I ordered the Veal Oscar. I asked for Fettuccini Alfredo in lieu of the spaghetti marinara. The waiter happily made the change. The appetizer, salads, and entrees, were all spaced out perfectly. Tommy, our waiter was very attentive the entire evening. All in all, Bella Luna was the perfect choice.

I recommend getting a reservation here to ensure you get a table. Location seats avout 60 to 80 people by the looks of it. Great food selection. The wine selection could be a bit better unless your a big Pinot fan. Great place for romantic dinners and company get togethers. Lunch is good and prices over all are decent. Quality is high. Service is high. 4 stars out of five due to the wine selection.

We had high expectations for this hidden Goodyear, AZ gem! Planned a date night and wanted some good Italian. To our surprise our food was extremely bland and flavorless. We both wanted to send our food back but thought it would be rude. I ordered the Clam Linquini and my husband the Salmon Oscar. They both looked wonderful, but lacked any type of flavor. With the long wait time we had for the food, we thought it would have been wonderful. The wine, bread and dipping oil were good, but not when you spend $80 and have to take home the main food that you wont get eaten.

We were a bit disappointed and probably wont be back. Stick to apps and wine if you choose to dine here.

It has been awhile since we dined here. Our waiter Simon was friendly and very good. We weren't rushed. Our party of 4 ordered different entrees and each of us were satisfied. The portions are good sized, tasty and not loaded with salt or sauce. The fresh bread basket emptied out fast and deserts were delicious too. The price, portion and service is just right.

My friends and I decided to try out Bella Luna and it turned out to be a wonderful experience. We dined outside in the patio area which was very nice and relaxing. Our server was attentive and the food was spectacular. I had the 8oz filet mignon and it was cooked just right. My friends had ordered the chicken and shrimp Alfredo and both seemed to enjoy it very much. I will definitely be back.

Been here many times for fantastic dinners, never for lunch. This time brought 3 others who have never been here. Lunch is equally fantastic as is dinner. Had a couple specials, orange roughy with spinach and risotto and also mussels with scallops and a good size lunch menu which were perfect lunch portions. The menu is full of pastas,veal, chicken, veggie,salads. Something for everyone. Always greeted with smiles. 2 Diners had the orange roughy special, they devoured it all, very tender fish,great risotto and spinach. Another had the lasagna, was told that was the best lasagna ever. Homemade sauce, fantastic. I had the veal marsalla, great sauce, mushrooms onions and tasted like a few nuts. Also with great veggies. The bread on the table and dipping oil balsamic is great too. All meals come with soup or salad, yes even at lunch. Leave room for the fantastic tiramisu. Great to share. This is the real deal. Great staff. Alexus our server was great. Nice outdoor patio. Small bar, good wine list.

As the West valley continues to grow, it appears that quality fine dining still needs to catch up. However, there is no need to drive out to Scottsdale to find it. Bella Luna not only offers incredible authentic (and quality) Italian food, but the service is also unsurpassed. No more spending extra time and gas to drive out of my community --Bella Luna is our place from now on!

Took my boyfriend here for a romantic dinner. Thought it would have been much better given the abundance of positive reviews, but I was not impressed. Im usually very reasonable and not hard to please when it comes to most things. Our waiter brought us our drinks and then left. We had to go find him to ask for an appetizer. After he brought us our appetizer he gave us bread that was basically store bought white bread that had been toasted and even burnt in a kitchen toaster. 10-15 mins after finishing our appetizer we had to find our waiter again to let him know we were ready to order our meals. The clam chowder that came before dinner was very good. My Pasta dish, however, had no flavor and was so watery that the sauce seemed diluted. My boyfriend enjoyed his meal though, so that was nice. Still, this place was not so great and I will not be coming back.
