Go to place for local Italian food

If you like Shrimp scampi you have to try their parchment baked shrimp scampi with penne pasta. Service is always great and when he is in, the owner always stops by and makes sure you are having a good experience.

We are fortunate to live close to this little restaurant and have had many great meals there...their pizza is very good and we love the special salad that goes well with it. They always have good specials also and a nice glass of wine to compliment the food. The staff is friendly and they even have a room to accommodate... More

Everything on the menu is great but you have to get the Italian Pasta roll. I have never had anything like it in any Italian restaurant I have been in - including in Tuscany. It is very unique and excellent. Restaurant is small and family in feeling. It fills up fast.

My husband and I enjoyed the Tuscan Chicken along with Saltimbocca. Both were delicious and very flavorful. I loved that they offered gluten free options including any of the pasta's served over a bed of sauteed veggies. Yum. The atmosphere could have been a little nicer as far as decorations and music, but it was still a warm and welcoming... More

We have tried other places around Monument and Colorado Springs for pizza and panini, but always return here. Family-owned and delicious food. Recommended.

Yes, the reviews about the pasta is true - not good, not authentic in the least. The Pizza has always been our favorite, with a fresh salad. On this visit we experienced a grave lapse in management and service that is a major health faux pas. We were served an olive oil tomato dipping sauce for the focaccia. My husband... More

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
