I had a party of five, the bill came with a hard coded 20% tip and a 20% activity charge adding $50.00 to a buffet meal. Vegetables were cold, the rest of the food was pretty middle of the road. Think of how you would feel dinning in

this place has the worst service. Been here 3 times. Had great food three times. Had some of the worst service imaginable three times. The owners a mean drunk, the manager is crude and unapproachable, and the wait staff is poorly trained.

I used to be a huge fan of Bella Luna. I always looked forward to going and it was a special night out every time we went. But, over the years the prices have gone up while the quality has declined.

Pros: Fun place, Really friendly owners

The setting and atmosphere were funky, eclectic and relaxed. We started with a caprese salad ($9.00) which was a meager portion size, dressed with a basalmic reduction that was quite bland. The server suggested we order the "flight"

Pros: I cant think of why I would go back ......................

Great Italian food with specialty menus that change every month or so. Potato gnocchi and mushroom and gorgonzola ravioli (summer menu) are excellent. Great wine selection. Setting is in historic old building in Linwood, near Lunken

Pros: Atmosphere, Bread Pudding, Crab & Lobster Ravioli

Cons: Parking Lot Potholes and Gravel, Slow Bar Service, Expensive Cocktails

This out of the way restaurant is worth the trip. The food was authentic, portions were ample and the desserts were to die for. We had the Shellfish Stew with mussels, calamari, shrimp and scallops over linguine! Wow! The service was knowledgeable and friendly and the owner seemed to visit every table to greet us and make sure all was right.
Try the mystery bucket of wine. It is a fun way to try new wines at a price of $30.00. The interior is funky and warm. It reminded us of a place in the Hill section of St.Louis. A really neat place

Cons: Appetizer Portions Too Small

the service was awful: it took forever to get somebody to talk to us, even after a man (who i assumed was the owner) came and asked if we'd been taken care of: when i told him no, he said he'd send someone right over, but that didn't

I saw a very good write up about Bella Luna in the paper so wanted to try it. I love authentic Italian. I ordered cheese ravioli/spaghetti and my guest ordered the filet. The "authentic" cheese ravioli was the frozen round ricotta

Editorial from

Despite the fact that the owner has a non-Italian-sounding name (Harry Stephens), he really is from a big Italian family in upstate New York. For the money, Bella Luna's pastas and sauces are decent, and the approachability level is high.…
