Menu changed

The food is very good and it is a wonderful place to eat during Festival of Lights especially. I was disappointed this year when I went...I had my heart set on Chicken Marsala which was no longer on the menu. I believe the menu changed for the Festival period. The food was still very good.

My husband loves the salmon. I think their tomato bisque soup is the best ever. I just need that and the spinach and artichoke dip appetizer and I'm set. The creme Bbrule is pretty tasty as well.

On a busy weekend in Riverside, we were searching for a place that would accommodate our large party. The manager, Gary, was amazing and not only found us a table - was able to seat us all together and outside. The patio was beautiful! To top it off, Gary checked in to be sure we were comfortable. We had a... More

We went on a Wednesday night around 5:30 pm having made reservations the night before. Our table was ready and waiting. We were a table of four, all seniors, one man, three women. I only mention this because instead of always deferring to the man the server asked me, a woman, too pick the wine and taste it first. Sometimes... More

So as vegetarians, my family and I found this place to be our least favorite at the Mission Inn. The pizzas were awful and the rest of the menu did not seem all that special.

We love Italian food, oh we ARE Italian, but this was small plate stuff, high prices and just so-so food. Guess you're really buying the location just off the main part of the Mission Inn. The patio is lovely so sip a glass of wine and experience the ambiance.

We had our company Christmas party at Bella Trattoria, and even though we made confirmed reservations a month in advance, they had no record of the reservation when we arrived. We had confirmed the reservation with the manager, but when we arrived, he had no explanation. We waited an hour while a large party finished, and the sixteen of us... More

We did our annual overnight stay at the Mission Inn for the Festival of Lights. We hadn't eaten in Bella Trattoria in our many visits and meals at the hotel so we decided to try it. It was raining and they only have outside seating, but we decided to stay. All 4 of us had different dishes and not one... More

Great place to watch people as they go by your outside dining table. We had dinner and were so impressed that we went back the next morning for breakfast. I had the Penne Amore which was fantastic. Breakfast was just the right size, not too large, but tasty.
