Fabulous Lasagna and Incredible Chicken Carbanora!

A unassuming little brick-face restaurant, out on St Helena Island...."Frogmore" community to be exact. After saying probably 100 times, "I need to try them sometime!", I finally did! What a delight! A friend and I had dinner, and "taste tested" one another's selections. I had the Carbonara, and... read more

While staying on Fripp Island, we often eat at this restaurant. We were alerted to it by my wife's daughter who works in the area. I can say that I never had a bad meal here. We have traveled to the area many times over the years. One of my favorites, the Antipasto, is almost a complete meal. It's meant... More

We ate here in 2012 and enjoyed it so much we went back in 2015 during trips to Fripp Island Resort. We had an antipasto and pizza for dinner, and both were very good. One was a meat pizza and the other a veggie. The crust was very good, and the toppings were fresh. We returned for breakfast twice during... More

Enjoyed a great dinner with my oldest grandson. He loved the lasagna and I had a great veal special. Tender and great flavor. Good service and wonderful gelato to end a nice meal. If visiting our area do stop in Bella Luna for some really good Italian. They have a great breakfast and lunch menu also.

We just took a chance on Bella Luna and were pleased that we did. All 5 of us had excellent salads. I had the pear/arugula salad and the parmesan grilled shrimp, Both dishes were a good choice. Our wait person was very patient and efficient. One in the party has Celiac disease and our waitress checked several dishes on the... More

Not the kind of place you would expect in the Low Country but they serve a pretty good pizza. Helps that the owner is from New York. Not fancy but then the food is not fancy. Just good!

Well prepared regular southern Italy food. The daily specials are excellent and are more unique in nature.

Some people really like this place. I have been there four times and disappointed each visit. The pizza is good but the rest is average at best. Service is slow. We waited over an hour after ordering and they were not crowded. The time difference between the first and last dinner when served was twenty minutes. If I ever have... More

Great ingredients, expertly prepared and generous portions at a reasonable price made for an excellent dinner. This is a restaurant we have been eager to try, and hope to become regulars. The atmosphere is a bit loud because of all the people enjoying the good food and attentive service. Most of the clientele seem to be regulars and you immediately... More

A group of our friends dined at Bella Luna. We go there often and it is like visiting friends. Food is delicious and graciously served. Try the spagettini with sausage.
