Frank Lenti had yet to name his restaurant when he looked up at the most beautiful moon…and there you have it, the name Bella Luna was born! Since 2004, it has been an absolutely delicious staple in the Washingtonville/ Blooming Grove community serving detectible Italian dishes.
Prior to opening Bella Luna, Frank had a successful restaurant, Divinci’s, in Rockland County NY. However after moving to Orange County in 1986, he sought out a closer location.
With over 42 years of serving delicious eats under his belt, Frank attributes his success to hard work and great quality food. However, if you know Frank, you know he generously sponsors many events in the community. In fact, he also sponsors a scholarship each year for a lucky student to attend the CIA – Culinary Institute of America. Aside from hard work, and awesome food, his giving nature can be “tasted” in his carefully crafted dishes. After all, the best food is made with love:)
While there are so many to choose from, Frank’s fav’s on the menu are his Chicken Francaise and his special Nonna Pizza, which is a thin crust deep dish pizza. Yum!! While you are there ask for Sanquino who has been with Frank since his days at Divinci’s!!
Of course, COVID has impacted his restaurant, as they had to decrease indoor dining from 21 tables to 10 – to ensure safety for their customers. However, Frank remains hopeful as many folks are taking advantage of their takeout option. Keep in mind they also hold events and cater.
