Wonderful dinner with great service.
Been here many times. Food always good, service good and nice ambience. Great value.
Excellent dining experience! Great wine, attentive service, and excellent Italian food. We will return on our next NYC trip.
I love Bella Luna. It is a great addition to the neighborhood. Food is consistently good and very good value.
The lamb Ragu sounded great and then was rather sad. My dining partner and I both ordered it and were sadly let down. The caprese appetizer was tasty though. The waiter was attentive until we needed more time and then didn’t come back for ages, then when we ordered, all of our food came at literally the very same time, so we had to let our mains go cool while having the appetizer. The waiter apologized but didn’t make any attempts to rectify the issue.
I thought this place would be a win and I was fairly let down. It was good for conversation, but with the downer being the food.
We were seated promptly even though we were early. The food is basic and good.
First visit - happily pleased with both food and service. Will be back!
nice neighborhood restaurant. veal marsala was tender. veggies were crisp. riccata cheesecake was not too sweet.
Great food and wonderful service. Our favorite Italian restaurant to meet with friends.
Neighborhood gem! Professional & courteous service. Great Italian comfort food. Reasonable portion & prices. Nice wine list.
We took our niece who was in New York for her 21st birthday. She had a great time. The food was great and the service as always attentive but not intrusive.
I had reserved a table for 6 to celebrate my sister's birthday. I needed wheelchair accessibility. I was very pleased with the area where we were seated. Everyone enjoyed their meal (calamari, mussels, bruschetta, grilled salmon, shrimp scampi, salmon with farfalle, shrimp with pesto pasta). My sister was surprised with a candle- lite tiramisu, a very nice touch. Our waiter Sirhan was pleasant and attentive to our needs. This was our first time at Bella Luna and it certainly will not be our last.
The food was
A great neighbor place that remains reasonable. Excellent food and service
Great local restaurant. Discreet & fast service. We will be back
The service was very good, staff was very attentive. The food was delicious and very well made.
Always great service here. Friendly, helpful staff and good food.
Great spot good food excellent service seated right away
We take our granddaughters there for good pizza with great buffalo mozzarella ,lots of pasta choices and fabulous gelato!
Ate here on a quiet Monday evening. The decor and ambiance were quite nice. Our server (Timothy) was terrific. Ordered a bottle of wine, shared a salad and each of us ordered the Pappardelle special ~ served piping hot. Despite being basic Italian fare, we felt we received good value for what we spent. If we lived in the city we would return.
Always a wonderful time at this restaurant. The waiter service is terrific, the atmosphere is grand and the food is always on point. Thank you very much.
We had a nice dinner. But what truly stood out was our waiter. He went to great lengths to make sure that my rather extreme dietary restrictions were taken care of while also providing me with large portions of carefully prepared food. He was understated in all of this and I wanted to make sure to give a shout out for this gentle detail. Thank you!
Will go back definitely!!
As always, Bella Luna has excellent food. Always, consistently good and has never disappointed me.
Reservations are an excellent idea for dinner on any night as it is known neighborhood good food and good value, consistent good service.
Only issue that I have personally, is that it is a bit noisy, but hey, it is everyday full for dinner place, and when you have full house, there is conversation and people are social. It is a nice neighborhood social place, where you often see a neighbor at another table and go over to chat.
So, yes, conversation noisy and lively, unpretentious.
Lovely atmosphere, cosy, romantic, intimate, but not intimidating. Quality food, good portions. Decent wine list. Would return
I still consider Bella Luna one of my favorite restaurants. I had the mussels and they prepared it without the tomato sauce for me with wine, butter and garlic. Really hit the spot! Then, the grilled lamb chops were perfectly medium rare, seasoned exactly right.
Had a lovely Malbec with my meal and a decaf coffee that was delicious.
Overall, my catch-up time with an old friend (36 years!) is always a pleasure when we go to Bella Luna.
Our group of ten was grateful for the excellent service and accommodations, not to be taken for granted with such a large crowd. We'll go back!
Very Fast Service. Almost too fast. But great food and great service
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.
Perfect. Everything is great 💯
Serviceable, pleasant neighbourhood restaurant; food is fair to good (pizzas and pasta dishes best). Nothing spectacular but it’s worth checking it out!
This is a great neighborhood spot with classic pastas.
Neighborhood gem: intimate atmosphere, attentive service, good food and reasonable prices
Lots of choices. Good food and wine. Great ambiance.
Lovely restaurant with food that is always consistent and delicious. Excellent service.
Great food! Big portions and the best tiramisu!
We frequent this restaurant and I have to say they are always consistent and accommodating. Not sure if they still have an early bird special which is great with kids. There is something for everyone to eat. Highly recommend
Good neighborhood place. Only downside is they only sell beer and wine and I am a hard liquor person - oh well.
