Owner Vinnie De Angelo says it will offer fresh baked bread, pizzas, wraps, and desserts like mini cheesecakes and gourmet cream puffs.

The building was home to De Angelo's Italian Restaurant until fire destroyed it last summer.

Vinnie re-opened De Angelo's in another building near Highway 99 a few months later. And it's been even more successful than the original location. "That fire which seemed horrible at first has turned into the most incredible thing that ever happened to me."

Vinnie is keeping De Angelo's in its current spot. He hopes to make Bella Luna a popular spot for breakfast and lunch in downtown. The grand opening is set for January 9th.
