We "splurged" one night during our vacation in Hot Springs and dined at Luna Bella. It's off Central Ave, south of downtown Hot Springs. We'd pass by the sign for the restaurant every day when leaving or returning to our resort on Lake Hamilton. Don't trust your GPS, though, because it led us astray! It's tucked away in a small strip mall/plaza behind another building.
Upon entering the busy establishment, we were immediately greeted by the owner. He was extremely friendly and shook our hands to welcome us. In fact, everyone there was super friendly and provided excellent service.
The interior is pretty dark and intimate. We were seated by the one streetlight in there and I wished that the whole inside was filled with these streetlights to make you feel like you're dining al fresco on an Italian evening.
To try something unique that I hadn't had before, I ordered the Avocado Shrimp Fettuccini. I had never had avocado in a pasta dish before. I love avocado, and while it was good, I don't think I'd order avocado with pasta again. I kind of wished I had ordered something else, but I'm glad I tried it. The red wine I ordered was delicious and filled pretty high for a glass of wine (thanks!).
We had a great time and I'd recommend Luna Bella for a nice, quiet, Italian experience in Hot Springs.
