Incredibly disappointed. Our first visit was so nice, good service, food was very good. This recent visit, the restaurant was pretty busy but they seemed to have enough staff. We were sat on the banquette against the wall and it was unusually hot in the restaurant. Our server was brusk and we felt rushed, once we had our order, had to ask for items such as parmesan that should have been an automatic ask on his part.

This place has great Italian dishes with attentive service and a good selection of wines. What was really noticeable is that even though tables are close together, it didn’t get really loud unlike a lot of places in the city.

Excellent little Italian restaurant on Columbus. The Mezze platter is delicious, and a bargain - even without additional proteins, the platter for two was the perfect appetizer for three. Delicious basic pastas; the special farfalle with peas and salmon was perfectly sauced and well laced with salmon.

Bella Luna is the best in the neighborhood. Friendly staff, affordable food, constantly good food, always busy. We went lite fare (sorta): recommend calamari and mussels
veal chop special to share (pour that green peppercorn sauce all over your veal immediately though!!)
classic shrimp scampi for the garlic lover
The original 1930’s mural on the wall ain’t bad either!

Have eaten at Bella Luna several times and the food is always excellent: fresh, tasty, top quality & reasonably priced for a NYC restaurant. All the salads are great, I had the seafood pasta entree (amazing), and everyone was happy w/their entrees as well. The vibe is fun, positive energy. This past Sunday (MLK wkend) we came for an early dinner after a movie. Our waiter though was a bit intense from the beginning, got testy when we were not ready to order & towards then end, made it apparent we needed to leave. It's the first time I left Bella Luna feeling uncomfortable. But b/c the food & vibe are so good, we will still come back.

I am giving 5 stars because I am not sure you can beat the price-quality ratio they put out all the time. This is a go to place for delivery for us. We had family visiting and they wanted Italian. We shared the muscles for an App. We ordered the Lobster Ravioli, Ravioli Basilica, Chicken Parm and Chicken Piccata, all delicious. Spout the tiramisu and Ricotta cheesecake, fresh and delicious. Worth the walk on a cold night

Went to dinner here with three others and we were all impressed by the food. Chicken parm, eggplant parm, and rigatoni alla nocina. The food was served warm and was very tasty. The chicken and eggplant was tender and the saudage in the nocina was plentiful. The tomato sauce is slightly sweet, which we wll enjoyed. Service was excellent. Quick water refills, bread and oil on the table. Oh - and the bruschetta was outstanding - chopped tomatoes marinated perfectly. Looking forward to returning when the weather gets warmer.

I have enjoyed this place since we moved to NYC in 2012. It is a quality spot with very reasonable options and excellent service. My husband and I are vegetarian and they have some great pasta options and often a special that is vegetarian as well. Beers are $7 and entrees are reasonable around $12-$16. This is a solid option in our regular rotation of places we enjoy.
