Great pizza cooked in an old deck oven, served with a small town feel at a very reasonable price. And a bonus of complementary focaccia bread.

We ate at Bella for the first time and our friends the second time. Three of us ordered Panini sandwiches and became ill the next day. We all had different sandwiches. The pizza seemed okay. Our service was slow and the waitress hesitated to bring us more bread and dressing. The manager began to show up at our table consistently... More

Bella Panini is a truly a hidden gem in Palmer Lake. The food is outstanding and the staff is very attentive. The pizza is thin curst style and my favorite is the crayfish / jalapeno. Our family also enjoys the linguine alla vongole (linguini and clams), and well the entire menu. Highly recommended.

We love this place. We don't even look at the menu. We always order a salad to share (the Bella salad or the Caesar salad) and the Crayfish-jalapeno pizza. We are never, ever disappointed.

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
