I am an advocate of local businesses but I really feel compelled to share my experience. My husband and I went for dinner here after reading the good reviews. We ordered wine, a salad and entrees. Our Bella Salad came out, which we were going to share, and it looked very nice. My husband took two bites and noticed a... More

We've lived in the area for 2 years, but this was the first time we had gone to Bella Panini. For after 7pm on a weeknight, it was pretty busy. There were a minimal number of servers, so even though there were open tables, they had us wait because there weren't enough staff to seat us. The menu features pasta,... More

First, it's all about quality - when a restaurant is using the best ingredients you'll taste it in the final product. Second, you have to love thin crust pizza to eat here and truly enjoy it. If you like salad, the house salad is addictive; ham, pepperoni, blue cheese and the freshest lettuce. The servers are either over-the-top or underwhelming... More

Bella Panini has always been our favorite place to eat here in Palmer Lake. The food is AMAZING-love the Shrimp Scampi Cartoccio in parchment paper-seriously too die for! Very friendly staff and wonderful wines! Best Italian food in Colorado!

We had family in from out of town and individuals with GF needs. Bella Panini was a wonderful place to take them. Our family loves the pizza and lasagna. Two of our party had the GF pizza and commented how good it was. The dough seemed to be made there not a pre-packaged GF pizza crust you buy and slap... More

We came here on the recommendation of a local. We went on a Friday night at 6:30. Prime time, and the place was packed. You could tell there were a lot of "regulars" everyone seemed to be enjoying their food. We had a pizza and the spaghetti and meat balls for dinner. The pizza was a think crust and it... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants. I love their pizzas and the stuffed pasta roll is fantastic. Locals love this place and others feel the drive is worth it.

We heard only good things about Bella Panini. Tried it twice, and were incredibly disappointed both times! The food is incredibly underwhelming (the Lasagna was some of the worst I've ever eaten) and it's pricey.

What can I say? This is, and hopefully always will be, Palmer Lake's 'Pizza Place'. The food is consistently good and we always get what we want, even with something as daring as a Blue Bayou pizza. KT is the owner and one of the most personable people you'll ever meet. He takes great care in his food, his customers,... More

The owner's involvement in this small but delectable hide-away makes all the difference between just another nice place to eat and feeling personally welcome. He oversees the preparation and serving, and always has a minute to stop and chat. The menu encompasses traditional Italian fare and extends to Mediterranean cuisine as well. The fish dishes are something to remember, and... More
