Our experiences at Bella Luna were not pleasant. At dinner, we ordered the "special," only to wait more than an hour and a half to be served. Lots of excuses, but the waitress was embarrassed. The food was mediocre at best. Now this restaurant is...More

This restaurant recently changed owners, it is now called La Bella Luna, located in an old bank building. For a change of pace, this is an excellent Italian food restaurant in southern New Mexico. Try just splitting an entree with a small dinner salad as...More

Good Italian menu, great wine list. It's a little "stilted" feeling--needs background music! The waitstaff was slow, but responsive when we needed something. It's a nice touch for a place like Deming.More

Thank you for coming in and posting a review. I'm sorry to hear that the music was apparently off when you were here. It seems the player cycles through the music and shuts off and the staff doesn't realize it is off sometimes. Again, thank...More

I purchased this restaurant in April 2014. I am attempting to provide diners with a fine dining experience. We prepare your food from scratch as ordered. Our Chicken and Veal Parmigiana is pounded, breaded and cooked when ordered. Our Porto and Marsala is made when it is ordered and takes approximately 20 minutes to get to your table, so please, order your favorite beverage, try our fresh bread and our wonderful roasted garlic and prepare your palate for a wonderful dinner.
