Hate to say it but the food we ordered tasted like it was frozen and reheated. The food was tasteless and over priced. I know it's closing but even if it wasn't I would not recommend this place. Horrible last experience here!

This was a great restaurant but the owner has decided to call the quits and is moving to Florida. A great loss for Cincinnati, especially Christmas Eve's "Feast of the 7 Fishes" which has been a family tradition for years.

Sadly, Bella Luna's days are numbered. Harry is retiring and the restaurant is closing the end of the year, but you still have time for some fantastic Italian dishes. I had the prime rib cannelloni; my wife had stuffed shells. Both were out of this world. Be advised that the entrees are a la carte--if you want a salad, you... More

Bella Lina is a great spot for good food and conversation with friends. It is relaxed and certainly not at all pretentious. The owner has stopped by our table every time we have been there. He even straightened a crooked picture on the wall that was driving me a little crazy. The menu is not huge, bt a great variety,... More

Mom Pop original homemade, made fresh, italian cooking at its best!!! Have to say the neighborhood was a little scary. We advise go early, leave early, wish the location was better. There is some history to this place, very interesting family background. We were told the recipes go way back in the family and there is no room for improvement... More

We really enjoyed our first visit here in 2015. Did not have the same feel this time. My wife ordered the branzino, to many bones. Sent back but lost her appetite after that. Salad was less than fresh. My stuffed pasta tasted frozen. I will say it he manager on duty who had previously waited on us was very professional.

We went to this amazing restaurant for my birthday and I must say I am very glad that we went. The food was out of this world good, much better than I was hoping for. To start off we got the fried eggplant meatballs, which I highly recommend. For dinner I got the Prime Rib cannelloni. It was the third... More

The seafood cannelloni was very rich. A... More
