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.

We thoroughly enjoyed Bella Luna. The service was very good, and our waitress was attentive and funny. The food was very good, both the field greens salad and the Menino pizza. The live music was nice, and the place wasn't too loud. We will definitely go back again.

I came in with a group of 12 as a work outing. Our waiter was really on point, even memorized our entire tables order without writing anything down! Food was great and came out for the entire table incredibly fast. Our drinks were kept filled and the waiter was very attentive. Great experience all around.

Bella wasn't bad! This was my second time going and I really liked it! I would just spruce up the food and make it a bit cheaper; the meat on our pizza with jalapeños we had was dry, but it was alright; our server was really nice and the inside is lounge-like which is beautiful.
