Response to COVID-19
October 2020 UPDATE
Please call if you would like to reserve a table, 212-877-2267. We are not offering online reservations at this time.
Beginning September 30, 2020, we will resume indoor dining at 25% capacity. We strongly encourage you to make reservations as availability is limited. We will continue to use our sidewalk cafe for as long as possible. YES, we do have heat lamps!
We kindly ask that you limit your visit to 90 minutes so that we may safely seat as many tables as possible. This will help us operate with limited capacity.
We want to assure you during these trying times that we’re taking extra precautions, as guided by the CDC, NYC Department of Health, and New York State Governor’s Office to ensure your well-being. We are monitoring updates closely and will keep you updated as our situation changes.
You can always order delivery on Seamless, Grubhub, here on our website (where you’ll receive a 10% discount), or by calling in.
The health and safety of our community is our greatest concern. Bella Luna has been an Upper West Side staple for over 30 years and we will continue serving you through anything and everything that’s put in our path.

FAQ about dining out during COVID:
Do I need to make a reservation?
No, we are accepting walk-ins and reservations. We strongly encourage reservations, especially on Friday and Saturday. Please specify indoor dining if that is your preference. All reservations will be for outdoor dining unless otherwise specified.
Do you have a party maximum?
For indoor reservations, we only allow parties of 4 or less. Outside we can seat 6-7 on a case by case basis. Call ahead if you have a larger group, 212-877-2267
Can I request a specific table?
We always do our best to get you the table you want however it is becoming increasingly difficult to fulfill requests for specific tables because of our seating limitations. Please note that reservations always get the "preferred" tables over walk-ins.
Do you have heat lamps outside?
Yes, we do. It's still a good idea to bring an extra layer if you plan to dine outdoors.
What can I expect when I dine indoors?
The state has issued mandatory guidelines for indoor dining. Here's what you'll need to know for dining inside:
Temperature checks will be performed with a non-contact infrared thermometer on every member of your party. Any individual with a temperature greater than 100°F will not be permitted to enter. Temperatures will not be recorded.
One person per table will be designated the "Point of Contact". This person is required to provide name, phone number, and address for tracing efforts if needed.
You must where at mask at all times when not seated (e.g. walking to/from the table, walking to/from the restroom).
We offer hand sanitizer throughout the restaurant should you need it.
We have updated our air filtration system with UV light and MERV-13 filters. These two filters used in conjunction eliminate air pollutants, bacteria, mold, and viruses (including COVID-19)
If you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past two weeks please stay home. Order contactless delivery, we're the fastest in the neighborhood.
