We went to dinner and I saw they offered cooking classes so I actually took a cooking class and it was great. Lots of fun and the food was good.

There is a realtor sign in front of the restaurant and it appears to be closed. I don't know if it is moving but I don't think so. Rumors is that another restaurant will be opening there but I haven't confirmed this. I won't miss the place that much, too crowded and a limited menu.

I was so disappointed to learn this restaurant is closing May 31, 2014. It was an excellent fine dining and casual bistro.

Your last chance to enjoy Bella Bistro is about to end. I made it one last time last Saturday and it was jammed. Apparently a lot of other people had the same idea. Wind and rain dampened the evening for those who had chosen to dine outdoors, but I'm sure they were still glad they went even if their dinner... More

We have dined at Bella Bistro for several years (since we first found out about this restaurant). It has been our "special" restaurant. Food is delicious, well-prepared and presented. Wine selection is excellent, much of it from Italy. We have taken cooking classes there, and attended a special wine tasting too, and enjoyed those experiences as well. We recently learned... More

Upscale cuisine, yet casual. When they open the big glass garage door, it becomes an outdoor venue. They partner with Primo Vino, a nearby liquor store that specializes in good wine. Sometimes the Primo Vino owner waits tables and shares wine knowledge from his European travels and is helpful in food/wine pairings.

First visit for me yesterday was with a friend who said this was one of her favorite places in Denver. She had the osso buco veal and I had the duck confit, which were both superb. The osso buco shanks were tender and perfectly prepared. The duck was also tender, while crispy on the outside as it should be. It... More

We have eaten at Bella numerous times, and have always enjoyed the food and service. While the cost is a bit high, it is well worth it. The food is excellent and very well presented.

Fantastic food served in an unpretentious way. Warm and welcoming atmosphere and staff. Creative chef prepared fare is unique and delicious. The food is the star.

I loved meeting Shelly and Tim the owners! Small 10 table restaurant with service and quality being more important than speed. We've been back a number of times and spend most of our birthday's and anniversaries with Bella Bistro. I highly recommend the truffle lobster pizza if it is on the menu during your visit. Great atmosphere, great food, great... More
