Sister in law lives near and found on trip advisor. Took a crowd and tried lots of food. Salads were very good and chopped salad with pecans and blue cheese was great.

If your looking for some really good Italian food in the area this is the place. Never disappointed with anything. Try to go on a week night as the weekends get busy and it can be very noisy there.

Cucina Bella is one of our family favorites. The food (we've had many of their pasta dishes) is always good! I really love the cheese ravioli with meat sauce-the marinara is really good as well.

Nice atmosphere. Food is good. Large portions of pasta so expect leftovers. Great place for a date night. Groupon sometimes has deals for cucina Bella :-)

We've been there many times, and have nothing less than perfection all the time! The food is excellent as is the service, I have never had a bad experience at Cucina Bella. We also do "Take Out", and bring the food home, always good! I tell everyone about Cucina Bella, one of mine and my wife's favorites in the area!

I live near here, yet never visited. So sorry I waited this long! Meal was fantastic, and service was even better. Definitely on my night out list!
