Everything was excellent , we were a group of 6 for a big birthday and were treated so well. Loved the menu and seemed more reasonable than other restaurants we had tried. Never rushed us. Excellent evening! Thanks

We’ve been coming here for years and we are never disappointed. We had the salmon and branzino and both were cooked well and not overdone. The wait staff is very attentive; our server was Pedro.

While others in my party enjoyed their food, I did not. The pasta was stuck together and almost no sauce. The service was fair, had to ask several times for ice, had to ask to have the table wiped clean of crumbs and the waiter's water spills.

Bella Luna is a favorite due to the level of service, the intimacy of the space and the amazing deals- Italian for under $20, fantastic pizzas (and great customization options, getting rarer in the city) along with their famous beef carpaccio. Absolutely incredible, every time!

This is a nice neighborhood family and kid friendly restaurant. The food is ok. It is average Italian. The wine selection is average.
The people are very nice. Good for kids.

A go-to neighborhood restaurant. It can be relied on for competent service and good food. OK, there were a few too many capers in my a Beef Carpaccio this time, and my husband’s clams were a bit too large to be as sweet as they should be in a Vongole sauce, but the overall experience remains very good. This is a step above the average restaurant and we’ll definitely be back.

This restaurant was fabulous for a weekend lunch. The menu offered both a regular lunch as well as a brunch menu. The food was really good and the service was even better. We had a very attentive and knowlegable server. The restaurant was full but not crowded. I don't know if it's good accoustics or just considerate patrons but it was not noisy at all.

Bella Luna is a UWS oldie but goodie. It moved a couple of blocks south of its original location. The new place is smaller than the old. Service is very good. Noise level better than most NYC restaurants. Prices reasonable. Good pastas, salads and entrees.

I love everything about this restaurant - food, service, ambiance, price. Good variety for any diet. Food prepared well with good ingredients, the Rigatoni Alla Norma being one of my favorites. A great restaurant on the Upper West Side.

As a neighbor, I enjoy Bella Luna many times during the month, and often bring friends.
My only suggestion would be to expand the menu from time to time. One who eats there regularly finds it repetitious; even the specials are always the same.

My gluten-free hubby declared that his GF pasta in eggplant ragout was the best Italian food he had had in years. And my fresh tagliatelle with Bolognese sauce was tasty and plentiful. We really liked the attractive & comfy space. Service was quite good. Great value. Will definitely return.

Bella Luna is a great spot for a family dinner. We informed our waiter that we were going to a show and needed to have prompt service. He immediately took our order. He was very kind. The Margarita pizza was delicious. The waiter returned with our food very quickly and was very efficient. Bella Luna is a NYC winner!

Ordered Rigatoni Alla Norma served with ricotta on the side. Very disappointed. Sauce was very bland and ricotta was old.
