My girlfriend and I had our first date here 4 years ago and do Valentine's dinner each year. Always amazing food, friendly service, and a romantic (but fun) atmosphere. We enjoyed the live music this year!

Another great dinner and night out at Bella Luna! The menu options were great (pleasing a vegetarian and a carnivore). Staff friendly and warm. The vibe was positive and the event that evening was a blast.

A Very quaint interesting nice place! The service was great! The food was overall delish. The sweet potato fries were sooo awesome hot crispy outside soft tasty inside! I Was happy with what I ordered but another person I was with ordered a burger well done. It all wasn't quite well done! Also, someone ordered the curry scallops, but they couldn't taste no curry😕. But it was still delish. However I would definitely visit again! The Parking is slim to none as it is nestled in the middle of residential area.

Our third visit to Jamaica Plain to dine at Bella Luna was as great as our first two. My husband and I were celebrating my successful surgery and I couldn't think of anywhere else I'd rather be. My husband ordered the meatballs and spaghetti. Incredibly delicious. I know because I sneaked a bite. Ok, I sneaked two bites. (He wasn't looking) I had the most amazing shrimp with rice noodles, peanuts, cucumber and a wonderful sauce. A nice twist on pad thai. I highly recommend Bella Luna. The atmosphere is inviting, the service on all our visits has been spot on. Attentive but not intrusive. I wish we could live in Jamaica Plain. We live almost an hour away! But it's worth the trip.

This is a great place to bring your family but be sure to make reservations as it fills up quickly, especially for early dining with kids. Their pizza is quite good - crust and ingredients are fresh. There are good options for pizza, plus a create your own. Their salads are good and the option to add chicken, salmon, or beef is pricey at about $10 extra, but the portions are generous. All the food is prepared well and with fresh ingredients. Their beer list is good. The wine selections are limited, but there are some good choices by the glass.

Exceeded my expectations. Food was very good. I had the Farro salad with Salmon and it was delicious. My husband had a burger which was goregeous..very gourmet looking and deliscious. My 7 year old had the pasta and meatballs and proclaimed the meatballs and one of the best he's had. My older boy gobbled down his pizza. All in all a great meal as a quick bite enroute to kids hockey game.

I also should mention the ambiance is very fun. Kind of sparkly and quirky

We had three kids and three adults in our party. Kids menu is expansive (in addition to a small kids menu selection, there is an abundance of pizza choices). Adult food was mostly nice - scallops and calamari were great. Drinks were tasty and not watery (esp. Smoky margarita)

Nachos with ribs meat were bizarre, not sure why there was cabbage on top instead of cheese (and a few other ingredients that you wouldn't expect on top of nachos). It wasn't tasty either.

As usual, Bella Luna didn't disappoint - except for one area that is __always weak__: the service. While our waitress was very nice, she didn't once check on us . No drinks refills. To get our bill, we had to wave to her while she was chatting with her peeps. And the staffers who actually bring the food to the table slam it down and run off.
Having said that, the food is phenomenal, the atmosphere comfortable - it's a real neighborhood place that welcomes all.
