“What a bummer”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

This site gave this restaurant great reviews - if you are from the tristate area, you will be sorely disappointed. The sauce seemed like it was from a jar and the pasta was totally overcooked. Mozzarella was not "fresh" just a big fat letdown.

“Good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

The atmosphere is very cool. Feels like eating in an Italian grotto. The menu has nice traditional selections. The portions are a good size and the prices are reasonable. The waitress was very responsive. Overall, an enjoyable experience.

“Great choice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

My family ate here the other night, great value, good service, quality food. Compared to what we've experienced this trip, this was tops. In fact it was so good we are going back tonight! Mixed grill was top notch!

“Italy in Vermont”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

We always make a point of eating at Bella Luna when we are in the area. While one might call it an Italian Restaurant, there is a fusion of tastes ranging from sophisticated and subtle, to comfort food. Never had a bad meal here and the staff always works hard to please. Lots of Italian restaurants around, this one is a cut above the rest.

“Oh Starry Night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

We enjoyed dinner at the Bella Luna Ristorante after choosing it from a hotel's recommendation. It's a lovely atmosphere with a ceiling of shining stars - and even a comet. Very Italian atmosphere and menus. There were four of us and we all chose different entrees and enjoyed their presentations, amount and flavor. The desserts are offered on a dessert tray and can be followed by an evening liquor such as limoncello. The prices were average, the service was good, there was plenty of parking - we had a lovely evening.
