Bella Luna Jamaica Plain
I love this local neighborhood place and have been going there since they opened. Always great vibe and staff is very customer focused. Food is always great and reasonably priced. Had the spinach fettuccine and lobster pasta which was delicious. Wish is was on the regular menu!
Wonderful meal and better service! Will be back!
I love going to Bella Luna for the ambiance & good service (most of the time). However, I feel as though you never know what you’re gonna get when it comes to the food. Several menu items change periodically and some are good, while others are not so good. Even when you order standard menu items it’s a toss-up. Sometimes the pizza and calamari are on the money, and other times they are not. This past Thursday they had a Cuban steak dish on the menu which was beautifully presented but the execution was beyond wrong (I’m hispanic so I know). The teriyaki salmon was just ok. Even the butter pasta was bland - no salt, no garlic... my daughter barely touched her food. We will continue going because we just love the feel of the place, the outside deck, it’s close to home, and the food quality surprise adds a layer of “excitement” (if I were to try to put a positive spin on it). I certainly did not appreciate having to come home to prepare after dinner snacks because we were hungry again within an hour of getting home.
Excellent food and a great draft beer selection; very pleasant out on the deck (with the historic, huge brick chimney stack!). Very pleasant service.
First time at Bella Luna, we celebrated our one year anniversary and absolutely loved it!! Everyone was was professional and friendly, service was amazin.... Enjoyed the Pink Floyd Tribute after. Highly recommended
We sat outside - you would never know you are in the city
We all enjoyed our food !
cocktails were delicious!
Wait staff was attentive but let us be as we were catching up with old friends...
I’m ready to go back!!!
One of the best family dining experiences we’ve had in Boston. Amazing live music, kind and attentive staff, delicious food, great ambiance, good value. Would go back in a heartbeat!
Great experience all around!! I will definitely be returning.
My friends took me out for dinner for my bday and it was GREAT
Very pleased with this choice the food was good the wait staff was great the service was quick
I think the restaurant is missing a vegetarian option to add to the salads. Why not have a tofu or vegetarian protein source?
I find this restaurant noisy both inside and outside. But I've only gone about 4 times. Easy menu for families. Nice beer selection.
First drink was weak but when remade on request was much better. Waitress was a little resistant to having drink remade. Short ribs in nachos was dry. Not usually the case so was disappointing.
Everyone loved it! Great funghi pizza and cod incredible beer wine and cocktails!
Service was easy and fast.
We had a superb Father’s Day experience. We went on Sunday night kids eat free & live music! Can’t beat that! We’ll definitely be returning!
Super family friendly. Perfect venue to celebrate father's day with young kids plus delicious food.
My wife and I enjoy eating at Bella Luna. The food and service are good.
i love bella luna. the food is always properly prepared, the waitstaff are friendly and accommodating, the price is right. and it's a local neighborhood restaurant with a proven record of staying power in j.p.
The food was fine, but the mixed drinks were overpriced and awful. The pizza looked good; I regretted having ordered something else. Marguerita tasted like it was from a premixed bottle. Appetizer portions were small. Overpriced.
Fun and relaxed, outdoor seating on a lovely evening was great. The host and server were super. Strange to have a veggie burger on the menu but not make it vegan.
We were able to sit outside. Noise level was OK. Salad, main courses and dessert were very good. It's one of our favorite spots, especially if we can sit outside.
Went for my son’s graduation dinner. Great food, service and location.
I was pretty nervous (I get that way around pretty girls) so I put too much ketchup on my burger and spilled water everywhere. I told her I want to be cremated and have my ashes fed to people which may have been the reason she left halfway through the dinner and said it wasn’t going to work out between us.
The food and service was phenomenal though, would recommend!
I don’t want to die alone
It was my first visit and I loved it! The food and beer were great. The portions were perfect. The atmosphere very friendly and lively. It would have been nice - but I may be quibbling - if the live music weren't quite so loud. All said, I'll definitely go back.
The food was delicious and the service was the best we have had anywhere in quite some time.
Food was good - pizza and calamari. Service was so, so. Waiter wasn't focused. Had to ask multiple times for water before he brought us some.
Great food, great atmosphere, great service! Absolutely adore this place.
Always a treat!
Great food, great service, great drinks, great music, I love going to Bella Luna
Our go-to family restaurant. Food and service consistently excellent.
Make a reservation on weekends, lots of kids so noisy but overall will return.
We had great service and food but really hate the kid drawn plates.
Food and service was great. It is popular with the locals so I recommend making reservations. The ambiance was cosmic and I felt comfortable. If in the area I would go again.
Creative menu, great food, pleasant environment with good service.
Food is delicious. Service is excellenr
The server was utterly perfunctory is basically just rushed us through the meal. Food is good. I go there all time... but I hope I wouldn't get this person again.
It kills me to leave anything but a high review, I’ve always loved Bella Luna. This last experience was very disappointing. There was a private event going on in the lounge area, but I don’t think that excuses our terrible service. The waiter did not check on our water/drink needs, every time we asked for something it took at least 10-15 minutes to arrive. I hope this was only a one-time experience. Still love the food, beer and vibe though.
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.
Loved the live music and general atmosphere. Decent parking for its location, would like to come back.
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.
Festive, interesting ambiance, excellent food, and a genuinely attentive, cheery server! My guest group really seemed to enjoy the evening at "Bella" (as my family calls it) in every respect.
