Got calamari, the La Bella Luna pizza and a pepperoni pizza, along with beer and cocktails. The calamari was the best; the pizzas were OK. The drinks...did they forget to put the alcohol? Not very good service. In a neat old brick building with fun décor.

I frequent Bella Luna because it's convenient, has special event nights, live music, dancing, nice bar scene and it's a very convenient place to meet friends in the neighborhood. I so wish the food was better though. Probably the best items on the menu are the pizza and the calamari. Cocktails and wine are decent but nothing exciting. They carry... More

I love this restaurant. My favorite time to go is kind of early, before the crowds hit. Great al fresco dining (in JP). The best calimari too! Really great place for a vegetarian. I got the vegetable stuffed avocado and it was amazing.

Caught the Sam Adams open house last night and thought we'd try this place out afterwards rather than venturing too far outside of JP. They were busy and that was a good first sign, however that ended up translating into very slow bar service and lacking attention paid to the outside patrons. Not good as the wind picked up -...

A very busy spot, with sometimes queues at 5pm opening on a Friday. Right next door to the Sam Adams brewery. Good bar area with range if drafts and very good range of reasonably priced, but great quality food. Pizzas very popular. One or two dishes a little salty for some tastes, but speak out if it is! Most servers... More

I went here by myself to hear some music and listen to some stand-up. The jazz quartet playing on that Wednesday was awesome, led by a Berkeley music teacher, I wouldn't have minded listening to them the whole night! The standup afterwards was ok, although the last guest was much better than any of the other artists before him. As... More

Bella Luna is one of my favorite restaurants in Boston. The atmosphere is fantastic, the service is great, and the food is always awesome. On Friday or Saturday nights I would suggest making a reservation in advance.

I love pubs, and this is a great one. My daughter lives in JP and brought me here and since then I have introduced other people to Bella Luna. I'm a calimari afficionado and Bella Luna's calimari is unusual and good. I would give this 5 stars except that I get slighly annoyed with the number of quite young children... More

Great local spot for a drink before or after your brewery tour. Pizza is very good. Other entrees, not so much. Good place for LGBTQ crowd, but anyone and everyone are welcomed. I often meet colleagues there for after work drinks. Great bartenders.
