An upbeat environment with a healthy menu offering. The crab ravioli was quite tasty. Save some bread to wipe up the sauce. :-) My bill was kindly adjusted to compensate when my dessert choices happened to be out of stock. The wait staff was very friendly and will make you feel at home.

Really excellent food and fun place to dine. We were visiting Merced and it is usually really hard to find a decent place to eat in Merced. There were five of us and we all enjoyed our dinner. I would highly recommend the Bella Luna Bistro!! There are lots of choices on the menu. We were very happy with our... More

My daughter and I go here often. I have always been happy with what I ordered. Then we stopped by last Thursday and what I ordered was on the special menu for the night. It was the braised beef. I decided to give it a try and I will tell you right now that this was the most delicious meal... More

A good restaurant experience always starts with the service. Well....JJ who took care of us did it bigtime. The american italian style food and bar style is a winning combination. We had a Garlic parmesan fries as a starter and continued with Smokin 55 burger and a great bella margarita pizza. Try the home white wine...you wont regret it. Next... More

The food was yummy. But it took 2 hours to get it. I got lasagna, the size of a deck of cards, thinnest I've ever seen. A small scoop of veggies, cost way too much for such a small amount of food.

Wonderful food, gourmet pizza, fancy sandwiches and the only place in town to get authentic Italian food. Why is it not the number 1 restaurant? Seating. Make a reservation for dinner, they are disorganized when the crowds get big during the dinner rush and there is no waiting room unless you want to stand over people trying to eat. (Awkward... More

The server said Bella Luna serves the best pizza in town and the pizza lived up to the reputation! My husband and I shared a veggie pizza which was delicious! Great crust, not too much sauce or cheese, lots of veggies and big enough for two people. We also shared a full garden salad which was huge and full of... More
