First time but not last

We were overdue visiting Bella Luna. So many of our friends had recommended it but we had not made the time to get there. The 4 of us were there on Saturday evening. Room was busy with an acoustic guitarist in the main/bar area. We were greeted warmly by the owners daughter and seated promptly... read more

We made our reservation on Open Table and were seated at the time specified with no problem. Quaint atmosphere where you feel at home in casual dress with delictable food of and wine choices that leave you thinking about when you will return again and what you will try next! We enjoyed the Prime Rib Cannelloni and the Ossco Bucco... More

Friends took us here for my birthday and were treated with friendly style and comfortable charm. The food was great and generous, the winter was lovely and the owner personally delivered a handwritten gift certificate as a birthday gift. Could not have been happier!!!

Have visited several times over the years and always enjoyed the informal neighborhood atmosphere and reasonable quality Italian food. This visit was terrible. We had to ask for the specials as they were not offered. The food was about normal - C+, but the service was terrible. They have apparently trained their wait staff to use the terms "our", "we"...

Our server Chrissy was amazing. She took the time to explain several dishes and asked if we were celebrating an event. We were here for my friends birthday. We started with the appetizer eggplant meatballs and they were very good. So is the two kinds of bread they bring with a great flavored butter and olive oil with balsamic vinegar.... More

My wife and I dined here with another couple. Service was efficient, friendly and attentive. Food was very tasty. Jazz on the Saturday we were there. A bit pricey for Italian food though (ergo the 4 stars out of 5). Eg. $150 for 2 including a bottle of wine!

Had been there several years ago and enjoyed it. A friend invited me as her guest for a prepaid daily deal she had and I gladly accepted. The menu for the deal was limited, but offered a lot of variety. Unfortunately, they were not at all accommodating to dietary needs. My friend limits carbs and asked if she could substitute... More

Food is fabulous - it is family style. We ordered several dishes and everyone shared. It is a little pricey but the amount of food was worth it. One note, the staff kept coming by and chatting us up, even sitting down near our table. It didn't bother me, but my boss and one coworker were a little unnerved. I... More

My husband found Bella Luna while doing a Google Search. We were in Cincinnati visiting our daughter and wanted to take her and her boyfriend to dinner - the menu had something for everyone. From hearty lasagna to crab and lobster raviolis and my husband's favorite - Prime Rib Cannelloni, the dish Bella Luna is known for. The restaurant has... More

Ok, so you are worried you may scuff your Choo's in the lot. Good. If you are that pretentious, scram. It was a surprise dinner for someone special. They had always seen the sign and mentioned, They wanted to go. They thought only good Italian was on the Kentucky side of the river. This is where you will be schooled.... More
