We loved this patio - of course dog friendly and fun. The pricing was so reasonalble and so yummy. Can not believe you can get a bottle of wine and dinner for under $40.00. Love it.

Bella Luna is an OK Italian restaurant in the Market Square. And that is their biggest plus. The food is average, so is service. But if you're hungry for Italian, definitely go there if in the area. But I would not make a special trip...

On Wednesdays they have happy hour all day! The linguine with meatballs was very good; however, the sauce has a kick to it. So if your stomach cannot tolerate spicy it's best to avoid this dish. The tiramisu was very good. The only thing lacking...More
