Being big fans of Italian food we decide to give Bella Luna a try on our last night on the island. We're glad we did. We ate in the restaurant part which is located on the upper level of a converted house on well landscaped property. Pizza is served on the lower level.
We had the eggplant parmesan with pasta, the linguini tuttomare and the lobster with linguini. The entrees were all very good and the pasta cooked perfectly, "al dente". We found the portion sizes were perfect for dinner, not too small and not too large.
We started with the bruschetta and it was only OK. We would have preferred the more common interpretation with chopped tomatoes, basil, olive oil and mozzarella on top of lightly toasted pieces of bread. The Bella Luna version uses a single piece of fresh mozzarella and slice of tomato on top of a toasted piece of bread. The mozzarella and the slice of tomato was fine but we found the pieces of toasted bread were much too hard for our liking.
For desert we shared the chocolate truffle with ice cream. It was excellent. A word of caution; the desert is very rich and serving size is large, more than enough to be shared between 2 or 3 people.
I had a glass of the Chilean Pinot Noir. It was very good and I would recommend it. Also, I was particularly impressed because the wine arrived lightly chilled the way it should be because room temperature is actually too warm for red wine, especially on the islands. Most restaurants fail this test.
The service was excellent and the food arrived in good time.
If you're after pasta Bella Luna won't disappoint. The menu is pretty large and the prices are reasonable for the Grace Bay area.
