Bella Luna Pizzeria

121 Main Street, Trinidad, CO

Improve this listing
Ranked #2 of 37 Restaurants in Trinidad
Certificate of Excellence 2014
Cuisines: Italian
Description: We found the restaurant on yelp and decided to give it a try after we had had a long day of driving/sightseeing and we were not dressed for anything that couldn't accept road weary types. (i.e. slightly sunburned, hair covered with a hat, etc). So for our dinner we ate at the Bella Luna Pizzeria. They have a fantastic wood fired pizza oven and their pizza is delicious - reminds us of the ones we got in Italy. They have a good wine selection and some microbrew beer selections were available. The owners, Sandy and Jeff, are very friendly and really welcoming. Their pride in their place shows in the restoration work they did on this historic building. They have a unigue mix of pizzas that are their own creations but I have to say, judging by the pizza we had that included "pesto" as one of the toppings, we were happily surprised that the pesto did not overpower the other flavors. They also offer a daily special for dinner (when we were there). They also offer gelato which I believe is a secret too good not to be shared. We were content after splitting a 12" pizza and some mozzarella bread sticks and slept well that night. We'll be back.

Was traveling through Trinidad on our way to drop our daughter off for college and checked for pizza places online. Bella Luna had high ratings so had to try it. We were there pretty late but the place was packed. Good sign. Rustic atmosphere with the brick oven in view. We are traditionalists when it comes to pizza.....we just go... More

Oh my goodness where to begin. First we turn off from the highway and are hit immediately by the charm of this little town. It was beautiful and we found Bella Luna nestled on one if the main streets. Don't worry parking was just around the corner. The service was outstanding we were treated like we were weekly customers.

This place was hopping at lunchtime on a Friday afternoon. We ordered one 12" Baloo pizza and special we saw on the board for a Turkey BLT. Both were delicious. The turkey meat on the sandwich was awesome, and the fire roasted pizza was wonderful. My wife had her first slice down before I got my first bite. She had... More

I had read reviews and just had to try it. The waitstaff were very attentive & seated us right away. We ordered our food at the same time as our drinks. We were in and out in an hour, but it was very nice atmosphere. The salad and Pauli pizza were both delicious!! We will definitely be back again and... More

Ate here on a travel stop to Colorado. Not too much to choose from in the town, but the main street had a few options. THis was good thin crust wood fire grilled pizza. Kid Firendly and fast service, was not too crowded - perfect for our needs.

The service at the Bella Luna was friendly, but not particularly attentive. However, the food made up for that! The salads and pizzas were excellent. Just come with an extra measure of patience.

What a find driving across the country. This place would do well in most cities. The pizzas were very good. Our preference would be for more tomato sauce and a bit less cheese. The roasted garlic was a fabulous addition. We are trying to plan our return trip so that we can revisit on our return to Texas.

Talked with some folks in Raton, NM about places to eat in Trinidad, CO. Bella Luna was the recommendation, so we drove up. The place is simple to find on Main St. They only had three beers on tap, so both my buddy and I had the pale ale. The ceasar salad was good, but I was really hankering for... More

Found this place via trip advisor on my way from Texas to Denver. The pizzas are indeed delicious, crispy bottoms and fresh toppings. Yummie. However if you order one make sure you have enough time coz they take a long time to make, like over 45 minutes long. And don't make the mistake of asking your waitress why it has... More

Wonderful wood-fired pizza in an historic downtown building. Service was prompt, and waitress was very friendly and helpful.
