Though spinning massive amounts of dough above one's head is an amusing way to display a coin collection, it requires superhuman stamina to maintain. Rest your triceps and leave the dough spinning to the pros with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pizza, pasta, salads, and drinks at Bella Luna Pizzeria.
Bella Luna's culinary czars rule over a menu packed with hand-tossed and specialty pies, salads, sandwiches, and pasta dishes. Hunker down with a personal-size venetian pie, a white slice donning a rich frock of ricotta, mozzarella, and romano and flecked with garlic and parsley ($8.99), or treat a pack of hungry wolf impersonators to an extra-large tuscany, with feta cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, and artichoke hearts ($19.99). Right-angled eaters can dive 90 degrees into the square, Sicilian-style pizza ($17.99+), coating its deep-dished surface with a selection of 26 possible toppings (each additional topping, $1–$1.35).
While pizza patrons salute their slices, pasta barons can make away with orders of mozzarella-smothered baked spaghetti and marinara, ($6.50) or lasagna ($8.95). Salads and hero sandwiches round out the mealscape, giving forks, hands, and table-top steam shovels a thorough workout. Bella Luna also serves up a selection of domestic brews by the bottle, glass, or ancient Grecian urn, as well as white and red wines by the glass ($4.99).
- The XL was h.u.g.e. and so were the slices. I could only eat one. I wanted to take a picture once I got home but the kids tore into it. The pizza disappeared fast! – J D., Yelp, 1/4/11

Bella Luna Pizzeria
The chefs at Bella Luna Pizzeria like to get creative in the kitchen, dreaming up unusual names for their pies—such as Mona Lisa and The Vatican—and tossing their thin New York–style crusts with unique toppings such as barbecue pork and andouille sausage. They even extend their culinary expertise toward vegan pizzas, topping them with dairy-free cheese and fresh vegetables. When they’re not perfecting their pies, the chefs keep busy slicing up meats for crunchy hero sandwiches and whipping up meatballs for spaghetti dinners. As the chefs bustle around the kitchen, customers await their meals in the bright dining room over pitchers of draft beers and bottles of sparkling champagne.
