My husband and I travel to Hot Springs at least twice a year from Louisiana to celebrate my birthday by attending the Corvette weekend and to celebrate our anniversary by boating on Lake Hamilton. We found Luna Bella on the internet and decided to give it a try. We are so happy that we did. Our waitress was awesome. We got to the restaurant about 35 minutes before they were closing after our 6 hour drive but never felt like we were rushed. We decided to try martinis for the first time and loved them! They have several unique flavors. I got the lobster macaroni and cheese and it was wonderful. The owner came to talk to us and was extremely nice. He gave us a brochure for a nearby bed and breakfast and told us to call him from our boat when we come to visit in June and he will pick us up at the marina and bring us to the restaurant for lunch. Nice guy!

Luna Bella was a treat this Memorial Day weekend. Don't let the outside strip mall appearance fool you -- walk indoors to discover a relaxing, romantic atmosphere. We had the seabass (falling apart perfect) and a gluten free version of the chicken marsala dish. The wait staff was professional, and they were helpful when we asked for gluten free options. We'll visit again.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Nice to hear good things about us. You are right our outside of our building leaves a lot to be desired ( we rent for now) but the inside is perfect Once inside the staff is great the food is impeccable and if the owners come around we will get a hug. Thanks for coming by and look forward to seeing you again

We live in Hot Springs - year-round! Luna Bella: the best (in our opinion) if we want special food, a warm, friendly, knowledgeable waitstaff, and if the customer is nice, lots of hugs are a bonus! Cindy and Dick, the owners, seem to consider that they, too, share the joy of being in their own restaurant; they scurry around bringing food to the tables if the dinner hour is busy or whatever needs to be done. We've never seen a frown - only smiles! We're such frequent guests, Ray fixes our drinks and Jayne brings them to our table. Cindy and I stand chatting and Jayne drags me to join husband Peter at our table! We love our Luna Bella!
Salads are the best! ...and all the rest of the menu, too! Oh, and the chef is darn' good!

Thanks so much for a fabulous review. Glad you feel so comfortable here and enjoy our food. We do as owners enjoy each and every customer that comes in the door. We try to greet each person and maybe even learn a little bit about their lives by the time they leave Each customer gets a piece of our heart when they leave because they are like family to us. We always look forward to our returning customers we always seem to have so much to talk about. The fact that we are serving good food while we talk is a plus You have been so kind in your review thank you so much. Looking forward to your return visit.

We were so dissatisfied with the Italian meal last night that we went into Hot Springs to try their #1 rated Italian restaurant. This little place, hard to find with 2 GPS systems was worth finding. Great meal with the hub and he was as satisfied with his sausage penne as I was with my spaghetti Bolognese. Excellent food, try it for a special occasion. Reservations recommended for weekends
