It’s about hospitality
With luminescent candlelight spilling into every corner, fresh food to lighten your spirit and warm Italian hospitality, Bella Luna has put the heart and soul back into the Italian dining experience. We offer exceptional Italian food, an enchanting, eclectic atmosphere and the festive vivacity Italians are known for to refresh your “Let’s do Italian” night out.
Every dish begins with an authentic Italian recipe, handed down through generations of our family. Throw in a pinch of the unexpected, a dash of inspiration and a generous amount of passion, and that’s how we create every delectable item on our menu. We import the finest ingredients from Italy, combine them with the freshest ingredients available and prepare memorable dishes from scratch daily.
Sample our Taste of Cincinnati award-winning dishes, such as the Shrimp Scampi appetizer and Eggplant Lasagna entrée. Another Best of Taste award winner, our signature Bread Pudding with Amaretto Sauce, is owner Gay Stephen's treasured recipe. If you’re craving something decadent, give our mouth-watering Lobster and Crab Ravioli a try. Bella Luna is also famous for their delizioso marinara sauce, or "gravy" as they call it back East where Harry's from. The delectable combination of flavors has been passed down through the Stephen's family by Harry's grandmother, Michelina Scozzafava. To enjoy a symphony of salty and sweet, or agrodolce, taste our Bella Luna salad, a combination of field greens, roasted red pepper, figs, Gorgonzola and honey balsamic vinegarette.
In Italy, when it comes to food, dishes are created to celebrate what’s in season and fresh. This simple principle is what makes Italian food so divine. True to our Italian roots, an ever-changing regional menu captures the essence of the flavors unique to the different regions of Italy.
Come a stranger; leave as a friend. A true Italian dining experience should not end with the food. It’s about hospitality. While you dine with us, we consider you a part of our family. As you sip your wine or savor a bite of your meal, it’s likely you’ll receive a visit from Harry or Gay Stephens, restaurant owners. They’ll exchange a story, a laugh, make sure you’re having a great time, and be sure to spoil you rotten.
