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

Nearly all tables are on a a patio and there aren't enough heaters. The reservations were made weeks in advance. However we were waiting 30 minutes outside... 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.

The best I can say about this place is that the service was friendly and prompt, if somewhat unprofessional. Someone kept dropping metal containers which echoed loudly throughout the room and all the employees laughed but no one ever apologized for the disturbances. The food was fair to mediocre. The fettuccine alfredo was lacking in flavor and the sauce was... More

I tried the Belgian waffles and my wife had the bacon and eggs.....mediocre is all I can say. The waffles were dry and overcooked, but the 7 berries that came with it were ok ---(yes, only 7 berries----do they ration berries in California now?). My wife's bacon and eggs were......bacon and eggs----nothing special here. We were surprised on two fronts.... More

Our server, Courtney was wonderful, as was all of the staff we experienced. Appetizers of Bruschetta and Caprese Salad were quite good. Fettucine Alfredo and Shrimp was scrumptious, as was the Sautéed Shrimp Pinturicchio. The waffling of fresh baking cupcakes from next door was so tempting, even though they are on the menu at Bella Trattoria, we had to wander... More
