Had high expectations based on reviews. Experience was OK not great. Thought this would be a cozy rather romantic place but instead it was like a noisy tratorria compounded by a large loud birthday party. Waitress failed to mention specials; only heard them offered to...nearby table after we had ordered. Service was at an acceptable pace. Ancini appetizer was very good. Entree portions were large but flavor of parmigiana was rather bland for my taste. We did not encounter owner; only person who checked back was our waitress. Not sure we have ever been to an Italian restaurant that did not offer gelato as a dessert option! So overall experience was just average; not bad but nothing to rave about. No intention to rush back.More

I apologize for your server not doing her job in full. We are normally in our restaurant every night but I had been rushed by ambulance to the hospital and I’m sure they were all shaken some. As for the noise yes sir we serve...More

Choose the spot for the good reviews and were not disappointed with the food for sure! Started with the delicious arancini which we knew from going to Sicily — these were better! Loved my chicken fortuna and husband was thrilled with his seafood risotto. Service...was OK. Ambiance in the back room in the corner was LOUD because this is a popular restaurant that was full on the week night we were there. I would return though!More

The food at this restaurant is fabulous. Wide variety of choices, not just Italian and the presentation of the dishes is first class. I had the Lobster and Shrimp Risotto. The best I have ever eaten. The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere is...nice. You will not be disappointed.More

Based on the reviews, we had to visit for my wife’s birthday. We came over dressed but looking good. Nothing about the building or the inside says fine dining, BUT the food and the people were awesome. We were seated near a large party in...back of restaurant . I hoped for a table away from large parties because I wanted an intimate experience for a birthday dinner and covid is still around. The staff accommodated our request to move and that gesture was appreciated. The owner or the manager came by to check on us at least 4 times. The food was excellent and didn’t take long to come. My wife order the shrimp portofino and I had the fettuccine with chicken added. On both entrees the pastas were slightly under seasoned but the chicken and shrimp were well seasoned which balanced the entree out. The desserts were a 10. A lovely lady dining in the restaurant paid for us to have dessert. My wife had the bread pudding and I had the strawberry short cake. Delicious!!!More

A friend and I came to Luna Bella for the first time tonight and absolutely loved it! We both ordered fettuccine alfredo as our entrees and it was perfect :) The bread and homemade butter before our meal was very appetizing as well! Our server,...Lee, was also super welcoming and kind. & a special thanks to Cindy for a great time ! Will definitely be coming back and I highly recommend anyone to eat hereMore

We were visiting from out of state and were staying at Lake Hamilton. We decided to place an order for pick up. I ordered the Grilled Lamb and the Caesar salad, there were 6 of us ordering and we ordered a couple of wedge salads,...the warm spinach salad & the warm cabbage salad. Other entrees were the Filet, Eggplant Parmesan, Veal Scallopini & Penne Aila Vodka. Everything was delicious but the waitress who helped me said there was bread in the bag and there wasn't. In addition, I had left my credit card and had to go back and get it. (my fault) I was surprised to see only 4 lamb chops since it says rack of lamb which I'm use to seeing at least 6. It looks like an happening place and I would have loved to sit down have had a good cold vodka martini but we were dressed like Lake Bums so we just went with a pick up. I do recommend Luna Bella.More

The bread didn’t seem like it was baked that same day. The outer pieces were hard and stale. The whipped butter would have been a good addition had the bread been fresh. The shrimp portofini was not as expected. The spinach was not completely sautéed...and there were large pieces of garlic which was not what was expected based on the description.More

Sorry you weren’t excited about your meal. The bread I can explain, doesnt mean a reason just sometimes it sits in the warmer a little too long and that is the result. I will speak with my server on that ASAP. As for your food,...More

We made reservations well in advance because it was for a family anniversary. Everyone from Sarah confirming our reservation to the multiple wait staff bringing food, clearing, filling waters and taking our orders - all helpful, friendly, professional, exceptional service all the way around. Bonus...- the food was wonderful. We ordered both of the specials and various items from the menu and I can’t say enough good things. If you drive by during the day, restaurant doesn’t look like anything special but such an amazing experience inside. I don’t normally write reviews but had to send our appreciation for a great night.More
