Here's what people say after redeeming their Nift gift.

I have returned to Bella Luna multiple times since receiving this Nift! The food is phenomenal, the atmosphere is relaxed and hip but not pretentious, and the events and happenings at Bella Luna make it a must for anyone visiting or living in Jamaica Plain!

Elizabeth, January 25, 2020

Bella Luna & The Milky Way is a funky, hip restaurant in a cool restored building. The food was great and the colorful decor definitely gave me an intergalactic feel, to match the name. Would definitely go back and recommend!

Bella Luna is always delicious but using Nift was great since we're so close to there having another reason to go there. Our server was great and we will definitely go again.

Shannon, August 5, 2018

Great food and best staff ever!

Mary, July 31, 2018

Hostess was slow for a not busy night. Service was. Good, but slow to come acknowledge us.

Jason, July 10, 2018

We sat outside to enjoy the sunset while having a drink and dinner. I was very pleased to see a vegan pizza on the menu - the Farmer's Garden pizza was very good. It was a partly self-serve set-up since we were on the patio and both the bartender and food server were both extremely friendly and accommodating! Bella Luna is now on the top of my go-to places and recommend this neighborhood restaurant.

K, July 7, 2018

Cocktails are overpriced, but otherwise great place!

Bella Luna never disappoints! Make sure to get the green goddess pizza, you won't regret it!

Libby, June 27, 2018

Great location perfect for a date night. Pizza is amazing but dinner has the best options.

Veronica, June 25, 2018

Cool vibe - good music and good alcohol selection. The veggie burger was good, but could have had a little more flavor in the patty itself. Overall, would recommend!

Audrey, June 20, 2018

The food was good but the service was slow.

Kyla, June 17, 2018

Good food and service, great live music, and nice ambiance.

Amy, May 17, 2018

We’ve been fans of Bella Luna since it’s original location. The food, beer choice and atmosphere are great... one of the best neighborhood spots!

Annika, May 14, 2018

fantastic evening! nice weather to sit outside to enjoy drinks and dinner

SARAH, May 11, 2018

The food was great, the service was great, the out door patio was wonderful! :) Great experience. We will definitely be back.

Brandon, May 9, 2018

I got the pasta and it was a huge disappointment. It is on the menu as follows: Better Than Your Mama's Meatballs homemade italian meatballs, marinara & fresh parmesan served with linguini & garlic bread However, it tasted like pasta and meatballs if you were to take a taco seasoning packet and dump the entire thing into the sauce. It was overwhelming. I was just looking for traditional marinara and pasta as the menu stated. The waitress gave us half off the entrée so the service wasn't bad.

Brianna, May 9, 2018

With good weather, we were lucky to be able to sit outside. Nice patio! It was a busy night, so service was a little slow initially, but got better quickly. Food was delicious. We loved our pizzas. Wait staff was responsive to allergy situation of one of us.

Deborah, May 5, 2018

Great time and deal! Bella Luna is the spot to go in JP!

Brian, May 3, 2018

Such a wonderful restaurant with excellent food and service! I loved Bella Luna already, and now feel even more inclined to dine there because of this Nift. Thank you!

Lynette, April 29, 2018

What an incredible nift! We went to a restaurant where we’ve been a few times, and had a wonderful night. When it same time to pay the bill, it was so nice to have $30 off. Definitely going back! Thanks, Nift!

Great food. Great place!!

Rebecca, March 20, 2018

The food was great, they were able to seat us right away, and the waitress was terrific. My husband was shaking pepper on his pizza and the cap fell off, and there was pepper all over his pizza. They quickly brought him a new one, no problem.

Hillary, March 19, 2018

Great food and funky atmopsphere

Tam, March 18, 2018

Bella Luna was wonderful! The food and service was great as always - I can’t wait to go back!

Izzy, March 17, 2018

Had to wait for a very long time to get a waiter's attention to order our food, had to wait even longer to get our check... That being said, the atmosphere was great, the food was fantastic, and we were able to order drinks at the bar beforehand, so we didn't mind the wait as much as we might have otherwise.

Julia, March 16, 2018

Bella Luna is a fun-spirited, great environment with lovely staff and exciting live music. I enjoy my trip there every time, and again recently with the use of this Nift.

Ana, March 12, 2018

We loved it! The atmosphere was fun and the food was great. I read about its history and significance to the community and loved it even more. Will definitely be coming back and bringing friends!

Ashley, March 10, 2018

I love Bella Luna & the Milky Way. Its a neighborhood favorite and as a resident of JP I love being able to walk to a great restaurant. Our service was really nice and prompt and the food was good. My boyfriend is vegan so its nice having a place that has options for him. However, its always nice to have more vegan friendly dishes! I also love that Bella Luna & the Milky way has a lot of entertainment like music and trivia and things like that. Keep up the good work!

Jared, March 9, 2018

Lovely atmosphere and decor. Food was wonderful - presentation even better!

Bella Luna is a great member of the JP community. They have fun events many nights and the food is delicious, especially their pizzas.

LOIS, February 15, 2018

Really love Bella Luna! Conveniently located and tasty food. Wish they were open earlier in the day on weekends.

Elle, February 14, 2018

Bella Luna is my favorite JP restaurant. They have long been a queer-friendly establishment, and host many events for folks who live at the intersections. I also really like their pizza, and their bolognese special tonight was on point.

Lauren, February 13, 2018

Yummy food and great service

Claire, February 13, 2018

Excellent food + ambiance! We are regulars at the Milky Way for dance events, but after trying the food we will be regulars for that as well!

Tasha, February 12, 2018

Food was good - especially the sweet potato fries, the bread and pasta. So full no room for dessert. Sad! I would give a 5 on 1-5 scale

Julie, February 8, 2018

Great atmosphere, delicious food, wonderful staff! And the bartenders make fantastic mixed drinks!!

Nicole, February 3, 2018

We had an absolutely wonderful time tonight- the salmon and scallops were delicious. And our waitress was wonderful too!!!! The tangeray martini (shaken not stirred) with lemon was fabulous. All in all, it was a wonderful evening for two old friends from MASS and Maryland who were catching up. Lovely!

Nancy, January 13, 2018

Great pizza!

Taylor, January 10, 2018

Delicious food & drinks, fantastic, caring server, cool decor & warm vibe. Added bonus was the live music wafting from the Milky Way. What more could a diner ask for? Will return! Thanks, Nift for giving me a reason to try Bella Luna. I’m giving Bella Luna a “5” For some reason, the rating boxes don’t seem to be working.

Robin, January 2, 2018

I've been here before but just for drinks. We had a great dinner here. We went on a Saturday night, and were seated pretty quickly, food and service was great. Definitely eat again here.

Julie, December 17, 2017

Such a wonderful dinner out!! Got to explore a new part of the city too. I love Nift! Thank you :)

Kira, December 16, 2017

Cool atmosphere. Tasty food. Live music many nights.

Jenn, December 4, 2017

We had a wonderful date night! Pizza was delicious - we had a half and half mix for variety and enjoyed the calamari app beforehand. Not sure of it was special for the holidays, but twinkly star lights were a fun, romantic touch that we really enjoyed from our cozy booth.

A, December 4, 2017

Bella Luna was so yummy. We had the pork nachos which were delicious. And pizza was yummy too. I bought the holiday egg not which was dope.

Marguerite, November 4, 2017

Fun neighborhood place to grab a great salad and pizza.

Eileen, November 3, 2017

Awesome coupon! The place is a great sit down so the coupon is better for 1 person for food and drink. If you're going for two, bring more than the coupon!

Marc, November 1, 2017

Great food and service. A group of 8 of my friends and I went on a Monday night when they had trivia night. The staff were extremely friendly, helpful, and on top of it the entire night. Will definitely be back here with groups on future nights.

Great restaurant with a nice outdoor atmosphere. The food is top notch for such a chill place. Loved everything about my experience here!

Beth, August 20, 2017

It was a good place to eat in an area with not a lot of dining. The patio is lovely and the interior was a cool place. Overall, however, I doubt this is a location I would go out of my way for. Mine and my partner's meals were good but nothing special.

Bryan, August 14, 2017

Such a good pizza!

Taylor, August 11, 2017

Bela Luna is such a fun local hang out. Wide menu choices on top of the usual pizza and beer. Great music, laid back atmosphere. Perfect for an impromptu night out.

So glad for the extension because of a family emergency. It was worth the wait.

Yes, it was great! We are new to the neighborhood and really loved getting to try Bella Luna - we will definitely go back!

Terri, March 13, 2017

Cool place

Daniel, March 10, 2017

Great vibes and music. Friendly staff

Guerda, March 9, 2017

The service was excellent -- friendly, fast and helpful. The appetizers were excellent. I'll choose something other than the scallops next time -- They were cooked perfectly but the seasoning and sauce weren't great. Quite acceptable but just not very good.

Lynn, March 8, 2017

Awesome food. Great vibe and warm feel. Nick, our server, was super nice!

EslineEstinfil, February 17, 2017

Absolutely wonderful! I had the Braised short rib sandwich and it was amazing. I have never had anything like it before, it came with french fries which tasted just like summer shack fries. My SO had a pizza that was covered in a wonderful combination of gooey mozerel cheese, cherry tomatoes, carmalized onions, and pesto. We both thuroly enjoyed our meals and look forward to going back and hopefully checking out trivia night!

Amaliya, February 1, 2017
