Jazz quartet every 3rd Wednesday of the month

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... read 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.

My husband and I recently had a nice dinner on our first visit to Bella Luna’s (no-longer-so) new location. Overall, the food was good. We shared an excellent Greek salad that was loaded with cukes, tomatoes, olives, and feta and dressed with a tangy balsamic vinaigrette. It was huge, plenty for two. We also loved the bread. My husband enjoyed... More

Swung by for some food right before they closed. They were very nice and accommodated our group. We all got a variety of food ranging from pizza to salmon to ravioli etc. pumpkin ravioli was the best.

Bella Luna is a neighborhood joint that far exceeded my expectations for that kind of place. Great vibe, outdoor seating during good weather, cool bar area, and the food was very good. Met up with friends to celebrate a birthday, and on a packed Friday night our table of 12 was handled perfectly. Thumbs up to all the food -... More

I recently ate here with my son, who lives nearby and frequently eats here. They usually have pizza, which the restaurant is known for, and is excellent. This evening, we ordered off the entree special menu. The food was served quickly, it was artistically arranged, and very good- the staff were all very friendly, attentive, and timely in their service.... More

It's got a nice vibe of a neighborhood bar and restaurant. I've been there a bunch of times and usually the food is just ok - never fantastic. But after tonight's meal I might never go back again. I ordered a soup and salad. The waiter came back and said the soup was sold out. Then he came back 5... More

I went to this restaurant with a friend, and we really enjoyed it! I got the pomodoro pizza, which was delicious. White pizza with fresh roasted tomatoes and goat cheese with a taste of honey that was surprisingly delightful. My friend got the bean burger and also really liked her meal.
