Great Food

This restaurant is a regular on our Friday night rotation for our group of 3 couples. Happy Hour prices are nice for drinks and eats. We've tried many of their dishes and enjoyed them all from nachos, shrimp tacos, meatloaf, salmon, etc. and loved them all. Their carrot cake is quite good and their... read more

We've been to Bella Bru a number of times, but the last two times we were drawn for breakfast by their great Blueberry Buckwheat Pancakes! Perfectly prepared, the pancakes are packed with tasty blueberries - - the portion of three cakes is just right. Over the years we have tried a number of items from their breakfast menu, but we...

Again we love Bella Bru. Had the best vegetable quiche and Bella Bru special mocha with almonds. The service is always awesome and the food was great.

I have only eaten here once, a few years ago, From what I remember, the food was fresh and nicely executed. However, this review is not about that. My wife and I live in Oregon, A few weeks ago, it was our twin nieces birthday. My wife called them and asked if they delivered. They did! We ordered some cupcakes... More

My sister in law met us here for lunch and the four of us had a variety of good lunches, including a vegetarian. The choices were a nice selection of Calif. cuisine, including a pizza and salads and sandwiches order by our party. All were generous, tasty, fresh. The restaurant has a clean, fresh vibe, and the service was super.... More

Today, my friend and I stopped there for breakfast, as the food at this specific Bella Bru on Natomas has been good in the past. Today's breakfast food was ok....buckwheat pancake, overeasy eggs, and chicken apple sausage. Which really gave me dissatisfaction today was the service provided by the waiters. Never have I ever experienced such poor service at this... More

Looks to be a local favorite, quite busy on I think it was the first Saturday afternoon in January. Obviously upon... More

Bella has good coffee and some yummy snacks. Service is cafeteria style where you order and then pickup when they shout your name. Looks like lots of people like going here for their coffee. The biggest issue I had was the noise of lots of people talking. I would go here again when in Sacramento

We had been at Bella Bru for breakfast a number of times (good but not exceptional except for the coffee), but only recently tried them for dinner. On recent Wednesday nights they offer their entire wine list by the bottle for 50 percent off - - an excellent deal. We had their individual pizzas - - unusual combinations, well prepared.... More

Bella Bru has been doing consistently great bistro fare for years. But the Luna Lounge in the back of the restaurant has become a favored spot for Friday night happy hour with me and my co-workers. We make an extra drive to get there in time for specials that end at 6 p.m. The Mighty Mini Chicken salad is to... More
