Not sure how anyone gave this place terrible ratings, must have been competitors.... My family and I stopped in for breakfast and we all enjoyed ourselves. The bacon and cheese omelette hit the spot!! Great service, friendly staff, a great experience all around!!

very good service by the waitress/order taker on phone, great italian food, they were very cooperative with our vegetarian requests and also the penne ala vodka was delicious... delivery was on time when they sent via restaurant staff, but delivery was very delayed (over 1 1/2 hr) when they used another service. overall very good food for the money charged.

My daughter, her husband and their three children who live in Connecticut came to visit their grandfather and great grandmother for a recent weekend. So what do you do to feed kids who are 8, 6 and 4 years old? "Pizza," their mother responded immediately. But do you take them to a restaurant on a Saturday night? No, it is... More

My cuz told me I must stop at this place via facebook, I've been to Chicago many times, (even lived nearby for 6 months), and I gotta say this was the best Italian food eats we had here. small, charming, and was cheaper than breakfast we had earlier in the day. this place is a must visit

Bella Luna has really good thin crust pizza. We regularly get deliveries from them. We've also dined-in several times and have been pleased with the pasta dishes. Definitely worth a try if you enjoy good Italian food

I have been to Bella Luna many times and generally had decent food. As I live across the street, it was definitely a place I wanted to continue dining at. I purchased a gift certificate to use at the restaurant, which explicitly stated that it did not expire. When I went in to use it, the waitress stated she didn't... More

Nothing fancy here but good basic dishes. The fresh bread is a real treat and is made on site. Not expensive, half orders available and are a good size. Not a great bar but adequate. Friendly waiters, clean and quiet dining room. Not loud like so many places. Great for a family with children. We didn’t have the Pizza but... More

You're always going to get a argument when the conversation turns to Chicago pizza. Yes, no matter who makes it, it's better than New York. But who makes the best? And do you prefer thin crust for deep dish? We've tried a lot of pizza from all over the city and suburbs. And there are many good ones. In fact,... More

We ate two different chicken dishes. The meat was moist and the flavors were perfection. Portions were very ample, and we did not go away hungry. The waitress was attentive and friendly. The cafe is close to a public parking deck and easy to get to by the "el." Prices are reasonable. We have visited Chicago a half-dozen times, and... More

Bread and oil for starters, wonderful pasta dishes. My half pound burger was really rare, as I requested, but don't often get. They were running a reasonable recession special - pizza and wine.
