Everything is fresh, and well thought out. The blending of flavors, presentation, & excecution... Fantastic! This type of dining is hard to find in a small locale. Celebrity chef Vinnie DeAngelo & the Bella staff will delight your senses at every turn. A must for real foodies. Bev selections, outstanding! Craft cocktails, premium brews, eclectic wine list... Something for everyone.... More

A group of 11 for dinner, followed by a meeting of 16 folks. Quick, efficient and friendly service. Food was all over the place from sandwiches to pasta to chicken picatta to dinner salads. All arrived in good time, mostly together and were very tasty. Drinks were refilled magically.... Some had separate checks while others were together. Overall, a very... More

We weren't all that hungry so we each ordered a salad. My husband had the iceberg lettuce wedge and I ordered a half antipasto salad. When the salads came I was sure that there was a mistake as the half salad was very large. Both of the salads were very good. Our lovely and attentive waitress, Leticia , recommended We... More

Seems like we picked the right restaurant for a Saturday night. Lots of people there and seemed it might be a wait but they opened another large room they have and were able to seat us within 10 minutes. Menu has everything from Italian cuisine, burgers, pizzas, crab raviolis - I might be missing some things. Good wine.

There are not many fairly nice restaurants in Merced but this is one of them. Nice atmosphere and menu at moderate prices. Many large salads and sandwiches at 10.99 making splitting a tab easy. Also smaller salads for a lesser price. Other good entrees as well

Needing to stop for lunch on our way back from Yosemite I just took an exit from Hwy 99. Followed the signs to Downtown Merced and parked the car. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good. Bella Luna looked nice so we tried it. Hit the jackpot, GREAT FOOD, Duck sliders, California burger. Both excellent. AND, you get a... More

We always enjoy Bella Luna. For lunch or dinner the food is always good. Had my husband's 70th birthday party in the banquet room. Everything was perfect. Thank
