Fun atmosphere in quirky, retro factory setting. Enjoyed the short rib nachos; beet and faro salad with huge scallops was excellent! Gluten free pizza, not so much. The music "venue" - a bare brick walled room packed for standing room only, was king of disappointing though the music was fun.
This was my first dining experience and I look forward to a return visit. The Brewery Burger was delicious especially with the truffle fries ON the burger. Kids loved the cavatappi & sauce and Better than your Mama's Meatballs. The sides of regular fries and sweet potato fries were a pretty generous portion and tasted good but are more on the soft than crunchy side.
Great menu something for everyone, confortable seating perfect staff.
Ambience is great, service decent and food this trip was just ok. 2 out of 3 apps were barely eaten (calamari, fried avocado taco), pizza good, kids meals great! Stick with pizza and beers and you'll have a great time!
Usually in JP Centre Street is my restaurant destination. I was happily surprised by Bella Luna, which I hadn't been to in years. The menu was varied, besides pizza. Good food, good service and definitely a community vibe. Come for food, stay for music.
We LOVE Bella Luna! We had fantastic service and amazing food. What a neighborhood gem!!
The food was pretty good, the service was slow, and the prices were steep. We enjoyed our girls night out but didn't think the food was anything unique or something we would need to return for. Especially when a salad cost $17 and the nachos only had two pieces of meat on the entire plate.
Wouldn't recommend if you're in a hurry, but if you are interested in taking your time it won't matter that the staff is incredibly and consistently slow. That being said I still go there at least once a month because it's great.
Server, Lily, was excellent- friendly and professional!
I grew up in JP..I meet my husband 26 yes ago..in the house behind the restaurant.. Was there this past Saturday with family and friends celebrated my 55th birthday.. Food..service..wine..DJ was perfect!!!
I LOVE THIS SPOT. HAVE BEEN TELLING ALL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY ABOUT IT. GOOD TO MAKE RESERVATIONS, WHICH IS SO EASY. MY HUSBAND HATES TO WAIT.........PLEASE CONSIDER LEAVING THE SPINACH ARTICHOKE DIP PERMANENTLY ON THE MENU. I KNOW YOU LIKE TO MIX IT UP. GREAT DRINKS, DESSERTS AND CHOICES FOR EVERYONE. KIDS MENU ALSO. LOVE THE ATMOSPHERE. WAIT STAFF, ETC. ARE AWESOME.
Great food and great service! We went on Jazz night which was alright, varies week to week depending on the group!
Awesome, as always!
I had dinner here with a few friends. The food was delicious! There we some things that gave me pause however…
Service is rated only “good” because while our server was great, very personable, attentive, got everything right, the people who actually brought the food to the table were curt, bordering on rude: no eye contact, as little interaction as possible, no smiles – it was off-putting.
Value is rated “fair” because the portions are so small! We ordered two appetizers for the table (there were three of us) and had to order a third because the deviled eggs only had three ½ eggs. To be clear: that is only one and a half eggs. The figs in a blanket were amazing! Though again, too few of them for the price. Additionally, the entree portions were small as well. Better Than Your Mama’s Meatballs was delicious! But had so little pasta that my boyfriend was still hungry afterward, and that is after the three appetizers we had. I ordered the scallops and wished I had ordered something more substantial. There were four scallops, which would have been okay if there were more than a small dollop of mashed potatoes along with them. For the prices we paid it just did not seem worth it.
Good food and service but should add more things to menu
Valentine's Dinner was very good food but service was a little slow, they were very busy. Would definitely try it again, staff was friendly and we were seated right on time for our reservation.
This was my date's first time being at Bella Luna (Milky Way) and she had a great time! I had been before to a few late night open mic events, so I already had a feel for the food and the vibe of the place. It was really nice to find a very popular restaurant on Valentine's Day that had the whole menu available (unfortunately, a rarity nowadays), and the food was excellent! The service was great, and our favorite part was the Brownie Sundae, which we didn't expect to be so big, but it was a great surprise! Her favorite drink (Midori Sour) wasn't listed on the menu, but our waitress asked the bartender if they had that available, and they happily obliged. Needless to say, we were both happy campers, but she's the one that really matters here. We'll certainly be back for upcoming events and general dining. Thanks for everything!!!
Our favorite neighborhood spot. Good food. Great drinks and beer. Great ambiance.
Waited 30mins despite having a reservation.
Our waitress was very friendly and courteous. She checked on us throughout the night to make sure everything was good and to our liking. Had the short rib nachos, deviled eggs, mac and cheese entree, and the grilled ribeye. Nachos were good but felt like it was missing something. Wasn't a big fan of the deviled eggs. The mac and cheese were very cheesy.. extremely hearty. The grilled ribeye was delicious.
Delicious food and wonderful service! Perfect spot for a casual meal, neighborhood gem!
I love Bella Luna/Milky Way! The pizza is amazing! I love that they offer gluten free and soy cheese. The deviled eggs are my favorite starter.
Great spot for a dinner with the kids. Family friendly atmosphere, delicious cocktails, and good food. Kids eat free on Sunday nights with an Irish jam session included!
We had such a lovely time! The pizza was kind of unimaginative, but the mac and cheese was great. There were all kinds of interesting things on the menu, and the server was very clear that they could omit ingredients if we so chose. The atmosphere is great, the music just loud enough to be fun but not to interfere with conversation. And the dance room was a blast! Plenty of people dancing, together and separately ... all in all, thumbs up!
BEEN HERE SEVERAL TIMES. LOVE IT. OPENS AT 5PM.WOULD SUGGEST ONLINE OR PHONE RESERVATION FOR BUSY NITES. GREAT FOOD, ATMOSPHERE,LOCAL, SERVICE AND PRICE. RECOMMEND. I HEAR THEY BOOK OUT FOR PARTIES, GROUPS. VERY ATTENTIVE STAFF.
Food was decent. Ambiance was lovely. We had to ask for creations for our children for times and has to wait 10 minutes for some water. These two annoyances put a damper on our experience.
Special of Duck Soup Thai was really good
Shrimp appetizer also really unique
Fun night of trivia with friends
Friendly and helpful staff
We come once a month for more than a year always fun!!
The place is really cool. I'm even considering hosting an event there! Amd although we didn't love the brownie (they didn't have the smore's thingy), our server was very ver nice! Loved the place!
The dinner was ok. I arrived a bit late but I couldn't enjoy the 4 course dinner that I paid for, they just said, they didn't have first course anymore which is unfair because I paid for the 4 course dinner.
We have made Bella Luna a New Years Eve tradition over the past four years. Early dinner when the restaurant isn't yet crowded, then off to First Night Boston for the evening festivities. And it is all via the MBTA.
