Here at Bella Luna we are deeply versed in “the joys of the table.” Perhaps the first thing people think of when they think of Italy is the joy, warmth, and magic created around the Italian table. It is one of the most enduring images and metaphors in Italian art, celebrating their greatest paintings and films, from the Renaissance to the present day. When I hear “A Tavola” – or “at the table” – my heart begins to open and I know that life’s greatest dramas and celebrations will unfold there. Familial bonds and battles are forged a tavola; the deepest ties of love and friendship are developed and strengthened around it. It is in my experience that fellow Italians understand and appreciate the magical synergy that is created when the joys of conversation and intimacy commingle with the pleasures of beautiful food and drink. We welcome you to join ours!
