We love going to Bella as its good food and in our neighborhood. But when you really think about it, it's a very expensive place to go out to. A burger averages $18??? And entrees over $20. I feel like we spend a fortune every time. Husband had a cocktail off the specials and definitely not worth spending. We'll keep coming back of course but question something each time.

Our first time visiting. Loved the ambience of this place, and the live jazz music. The Autumn flatbread was fantastic, and my husband loved the vegan lasagne. Great selection of draft beers. We'll definitely be back.

Our table was ready when we arrived. The ambiance was really nice. Dim and comfy. The waitress was nice. We loved drawing on the paper tablecloths. It was my friend's birthday and they came out and sang happy birthday to her, with dessert and candle. She was totally embarrassed. It was great! LOL! There was a dj there playing music and we were singing and dancing whilst we enjoyed our meal. We had a great night.

We love Bella Luna and really want to enjoy ourselves there but they really do seem to have a problem with service. Every time we go we wait and wait and wait for a server to greet us or take an order (or both) and once we get our food, we almost never see anyone again (either that or they "check in" before we've had a chance to take a bite or consider another drink). We LOVE that it's so family friendly, we LOVE the live music and we love the overall friendliness of the atmosphere and place. We just would LOVE to have a second drink occasionally...

I like getting the email news updates about the specials that week but I also like some standby favorites like the kale salad. This time I tried the chicken sandwich and loved the spicy sauce on it.

Although the service was slow (water came right away but no drinks for 25 minutes - about when the main courses arrived), the food was tasty and worth the price. We shared a brownie sundae for dessert and that was quite good. The place was convivial and noisy, not recommended for romance but not bad for a get-together. Portions were a decent size and waiters were friendly.

The server was attentive and hardworking but the bar was backed up and we never got the wine we ordered to have with dinner. The beet and goat cheese appetizer was odd and unbalanced—three thick pieces of goat cheese, each topped w a thin, dried piece of beet. The lamb was very good. The pancetta pasta was far too rich. Loved the music we could hear coming from lounge.

Excellent, very responsive service. The problem was my entree: the breaded port (cutlet) came into two pieces, one piled on top of the other. One seemed over-cooked, thin; the other seemed fine. Perhaps the topping was something else? I’m sorry; I couldn’t tell! Otherwise excellent: my guest had a great pizza; great experience. It was a bit cold in the corner in which we were placed.
