We had drinks which were just ok. I had a martini that I would not order again. We went on the Saturday after Valentine's day. I ordered the chicken parmsean which was the best I have ever had. My husband ordered the lasagna and it was stellar. For dessert we had the bread pudding, it was WONDERFUL. They had a... More

We've eaten here quite a few times. Sometimes it is great and sometimes not so great. The by-the-glass wine selection is terrible. The pasta, especially ravioli, is often overdone and mushy. The red sauce ranges from thin chef boyar dee to robust, spicy truly Italian depending upon the night. The veal is usually good. Most of the appetizers and salads... More

This is our third time visiting Bella Luna and every time has been excellent! The live music in the bar was great while we had a cocktail and waited for our table. The wine list was very good with many great choices. The food and dessert was off the charts! Our server, Casey did a fantastic job! Be sure to... More

Exceptional, eclectic Italian restarante. The menu is large and there is sure to be something for everyone. The food is way above average. If you think Olive Garden is Italian, wait till you eat at Bella Luna. Its the closest to Italy that I have found in Cincy. The desserts are house made and top self(the best). Service is perfect...

Went the week of Valentines for a friend's birthday dinner. It was great. The service was excellent, the food was fresh and plentiful and very tasty! The location is a bit out of the way but it sure is worth finding this place!

The visit was the experience. The restaurant is owned by a New York family who take pride in serving real Italian fare with honest Italian hospitality. We were greeted by a server who did everything, including take my coat, to make us comfortable. Soon, the owner himself visited and regaled us with stories of his family and some standard, but...

This still stands as one of my favorite local restaurants. Everyone there is always so welcoming and the food is always great. The server was not as good (did not know the menu well) as what we have had in the past but she was plenty cheerful. I again had the Pork Shank Osso Buco which is my personal favorite... More

My daughter and fiancee took my wife and I to dinner at the Bella Luna to celebrate our birthdays. We were greeted warmly by the hostess and seated immediately upon our arrival. The server then came and took our drink orders, and explained a few things about the history of the restaurant, why the dishes were all different (quite interesting)... More

We hope they were having an off night because we find it hard to believe so much could be so terrible in one sitting. The restaurant has a nice cozy atmosphere, but that is where any pleasure ended. We started with the stuffed mushrooms. Rubbery and oily. About 40 minutes later the salads came. My wife ordered the marinated beet... More
