Bella Luna on Columbus and 88th is a casual but elegant bustling Italian restaurant. The food is solidly good and the service is excellent.

Still the solid, generously portioned, reasonably priced food in the new digs.
But except for the old stalwarts, Timothy, Tomas, and Tony, the service is down, and the atmosphere has darkened. Hosts and hostesses prowl with Ipads, making note of when you might be freeing up your table, and some of the new staff, when they can be bothered to interact with customers, are decidedly unpleasant. Come on, Bella. We need you back.

The food taste truly amazing and homemade. They offer a set price menu which is good choices and price is very good. Customer service is great and sitting is offered inside and outside weather permitting.

After passing this restaurant several times we decided to check it out. When we approached the restaurant there were 3 waiters standing there who never greeted us. We should have turned around at that point but decided against it. I ordered the lobster ravioli which was awesome. My friend had the Capellini Alla Campagnola which was served with a big lump of goat cheese in the middle. She found it very boring and tasteless. All the tables around us were served bread which would have been a great accompaniment but none was offered. After our meal was served the waiter did not even inquiry whether we required anything further. We were only asked after we had requested our check from the busboy. We normally tip well but did not leave one for this waiter as we've never had such horrible service.
