“Awesome find for delicious pizza”

Bella Luna Pizzeria
Ranked #2 of 50 Restaurants in Trinidad
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Italian
Description: We found the restaurant on yelp and decided to give it a try after we had had a long day of driving/sightseeing and we were not dressed for anything that couldn't accept road weary types. (i.e. slightly sunburned, hair covered with a hat, etc). So for our dinner we ate at the Bella Luna Pizzeria. They have a fantastic wood fired pizza oven and their pizza is delicious - reminds us of the ones we got in Italy. They have a good wine selection and some microbrew beer selections were available. The owners, Sandy and Jeff, are very friendly and really welcoming. Their pride in their place shows in the restoration work they did on this historic building. They have a unigue mix of pizzas that are their own creations but I have to say, judging by the pizza we had that included "pesto" as one of the toppings, we were happily surprised that the pesto did not overpower the other flavors. They also offer a daily special for dinner (when we were there). They also offer gelato which I believe is a secret too good not to be shared. We were content after splitting a 12" pizza and some mozzarella bread sticks and slept well that night. We'll be back.

“Awesome find for delicious pizza”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

We cannot say enough great things about this place. We were on our way from Denver to Santa Fe and stopped in town for lunch. As soon as we saw the wood-burning oven we were happy! We each had a salad and we shared a pizza. The salads were fresh with quality ingredients and delicious dressing - rivaled what you'd get in a nice restaurant in a metropolis. The sausage pizza we ordered was wonderful. No wonder it is rated number one on trip advisor for this town. Very nice atmosphere too! Highly recommend!

“Great Find”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Wonderful wood fired pizza in a mom and pop restaurant located in downtown Trinidad. Try the Bella Luna pizza and split a full salad. The char on the pizza adds a distinct flavor and the wood fire keeps the freshness of the ingredients. Owner was operating the oven and was quite friendly and charming; Servers were too. We will be back next time we are in the area.

“Wood fired pizza”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

The pizzas are wood fired, thin crust and very good. The cheese could be upgraded to add more pizazz.
