“Very enjoyable Italian Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Bella Luna is a very good Italian restaurant in a fun, quirky and off the beaten path location. The menu had some interesting surprises along with Italian classics. My wife especially enjoyed the eggplant lasagna, which replaces the pasta normally found in lasagna with eggplant. This was a great creative twist on "regular" lasagna (which they also have). Our server was terrific and knowledgable about the food and wine choices.

Great service and fantastic food in a funky resturant. The live music in the bar was a cool as well.

“One of our favorite places”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We think everything is just the best! Great food and wine, funny/eclectic decor, and a staff that is dedicated to making sure you are having a good time. Owner Harry Stephens makes it even more special with his "walk-arounds". He has a great knowledge of Cincinnati history.

Be sure to try the tiramisu and the prime rib cannelonis. Also, if they advertise a brunch (normally on Mother's Day) be sure to go. One of the best buffets we have seen.
