Great family restaurant

This family-owned, diner-type restaurant has a comprehensive menu and the prices are great, with pasta dishes averaging $9.99. I had the pasta with chicken and lemon sauce but unfortunately I couldn't taste any hint of lemon. The complimentary bread is delicious and the tiramisu was yummy. The... read more

Went there based on trip advisor comments and reviews, the food was ok but nothing special. The service was good along with a friendly waitress. Thought the food was fairly bland and could use some more spices to kick it up a notch

I had not been to the restaurant for a few months. I went there last night and had the worse meal I have ever had here. The pasta sauce tasted terrible and the chicken tasted like it was quick thawed and it was nasty tasting. I don't think I will go back again

My fourth trip to this great little place and I am becoming a regular. Had dinner here 11/22/14. The prices are reasonable with the Bella Roma special plate starting at $10.99. Dinner comes with choice of soup; Italian wedding soup (great!!) or minestrone or salad. They bake their own bread in house which is great in itself and served with... More

I had the taco pizza this evening. Unbelievably delicious. We would absolutely come back here again in a heartbeat. The staff are very friendly and provided fantastic service. The decor is a bit dated, but the quality of the food more than makes up for it. Highly highly recommended.

This is a great little diner that gets our repeat business. The food and service are wonderful. My husband and I had lunch there yesterday...so good! And what a bargain at $6.99 for soup or salad and entree from the luncheon menu. We had the spaghetti and meatballs and the stuffed manicotti....both so delicious and generously porportioned. But what really... More

La Bella Roma is a hidden gem in Cathedral City. Hidden in a strip mall behind the gas station on Ramon at Landau. This small family resturant always provides the best pizza in town. Lunches are a great bargin starting at $6.95 for choice of soup and salad and main course. The rolls with garlic butter are served hot shortly... More

This restaurant is close to my home and I finally decided to try it. It is tucked away in a little strip mall. When I went in it was very quite (Monday at 5pm) and I was greeted quickly. The place looks like a family diner, Italian style. I love the feel of diners and coffee shops! I ordered a... More

the food is not very good, the only dish that is worthwhile wasting calories on is the eggplant parmigiana. it is a family type restaurant that bakes its own little rolls supposedly italian style bread but defintely anyone who knows both southern and northern italian food would disagree that this is really italian. prices are ok but still not worth...

It's ok food. So so atmosphere, but if you are looking for a bargain in dining options this might be it. My favs here are the Fried Artichoke appetizer and the Chicken Picatta. Casual dining on a budget
