Pizza is their specialty. Fresh ingredients, good crust. The figs-in-a blanket are delicious. Good beer selection. Lively atmosphere, but can be a bit noisy. Recommend making reservations.

There wasn't much to choose from. Waitress didn't seem particularly happy to be there. No greetings or small talks. Food wasn't that impressive.

A lucky find - fun, upbeat, eclectic restaurant. Really liked the vibe of the decor, friendly staff and good, not fussy food. Would have liked to have more vegan options, but the chef was able to accommodate our dietary needs. Nice cocktail and beer selection too

We were placed much too near a very loud party out about 14. I should have asked for us to be reseated as soon as I heard the first over-the-top shouting-talk from one of the 14. It was irritating and distracting. Food was great; service excellent. Environment was impossible.

Bella Luna is a venerable JP institution. Its Brewery location adds to the fun. Visit Boston's 19th century history and its neighborhood renaissance of the 1980's of which the Brewery and Bella Luna were central parts.

Every time I go to Bella, the service is amazing and the food is great. This time, the pizza was surprisingly lacking, but I have had it twice before; The Latin Quarter which has bacon, jalapeños, avocado, and chicken (I think) is a great pizza with some kick to it and nice flavors. It has never disappointed before, but it was lacking flavor this time. Other than that, I still love Bella Luna and everything else was amazing, including the calamari and chicken wings!

We are regulars for a few years and are not objective.
The mixed drinks are carefully crafted
Staff all helpful and friendly
Mixed group of locals chatting and enjoying their dinner choices
One of my fav s is the scallops and mash d potatoes
Rarely disappointed about dinner choices and the wings are always good also!

So good!! The calamari is delicious and the pizza crust is some of the best I’ve had in Boston. The crust is perfectly thin but still holds up to toppings without getting soggy.

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.

Cool atmosphere. Building is shared (not sure if same owner) with a music club. Would imagine place gets crowded when concerts are scheduled. Would describe food as upscale bar fare. Was good. Nothing really jumped off the plate, but didn’t disappoint. Would go back.

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.
