Nice casual Italian in Chicago

We sat in the outdoor patio area and had a really excellent pizza. It was pretty quiet on the Wednesday night of our visit, but I suspect it can get pretty busy at the weekends.

This is my fifth review of Bella Luna Cafe at 731 North Dearborn and I never can find enough good words to say about the quality of the pizza and the home delivery service. We prefer the large thin crust pizza with cheese and extra sausage. It is always hot and fresh and topped with just the right amount of... More

Pizza is an individual choice. Some prefer thin crust while others opt for deep dish or stuffed or New York style. Some prefer cheese and sausage only while others can't resist such toppings as anchovies and pineapple and spinach and pepperoni. In the 1980s, our favorite pizza was delivered by O'Fame on Webster, which has closed. There are thousands of... More

I placed an online order at Bella Luna for pizza. The pizza I received was wrong. I was given regular pizza when I ordered stuffed. The pizza I had was all around average. I wouldn't go back here, especially with Pizano's right across the street!

Funkybeat85 only proves that if you keep reading reviews of hotels, restaurants and attractions long enough, you'll come up with a negative analysis that leaves you shaking your head. This is my fifth review of Bella Luna Cafe at 731 North Dearborn and I've never had anything but positive things to say about it. Or else why would we keep... More

I have lived in Chicago for 25 years and I have never tasted worst pizza. The managers brought up free pizza to my work so that we can tasted it and recommend it to our guests. What a mistake...keep that pizza away from us. I just cant believe that its so soggy, wet, and flavorless. I took a bite and... More

We enjoyed our light dinner at Bella Luna. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted - like we were old friends. We started with a Caesar Salad. It was a very generous portion with quality ingredients, including Parmesan cheese that was freshly grated - and the dressing was super and plentiful. Then we split a small Sicilian pizza that was super... More

I know I sound like a broken record because this is my fourth review of Bella Luna Cafe at Superior and Dearborn in Chicago. But frequent travelers have their favorites--the best hotel to stay, the best restaurant to eat, the best attraction to visit. My wife and I love to stay at the Greenbrier and Inn at Little Washington. We... More

There are 30,000 pizza joints in Chicago and I haven't been to all of them. But I've sampled enough pizza to be convinced that Bella Luna's thin crust cheese and sausage (lots of sausage) is the best. I've read a lot of surveys, a lot of top 10 and top 20 lists of the best pizza in Chicago, and Bella... More

Let me just start by saying I have lived across the street from Bella Luna Cafe for over 7 years and cannot tell you how great their service is. Mario is the most familiar face when you walk in, and always there to greet you with a smile! The atmosphere is quaint and makes you feel like you are a... More
