Best Pizza in town

Pizza Bella is made with real Italian love. If you love pizza then you're in for a real treat with this local staple. Our favorites are the sausage pizza with fresh basil & garlic, pasta aglio & olio and lasagna. Buon Appetito!!!!

I read the reviews on here, and decided to order some takeout after we got back from a day of fishing. We had two orders of spaghetti with meatsauce, one with sausage and the other with meatballs. There was hardly any sauce on the pasta (and watched the homemade sauce coming out of a can). The meatballs were not edible... More

Our innkeeper recommended Pizza Bella to us for wonderful Italian food and so we went there for supper. We shared a lasagne and it wasn't very good. Something was missing, making it quite bland. Every table was full in the quaint place, so maybe it just was that dish but we were disappointed.

Family run. Great food. Nice wine. Gives you a warm and fuzzy. Owner is easy to talk to. I think his lovely wife does all the cooking, maybe it his daughter. She is very nice

Small Italian run restaurant. Owners were very friendly and the food was excellent. The gnocchi's were very light and fluffy. Would definitely return. We also bought a pizza to go and that was very good also. This place is not fancy, but don't let that deceive you, the food is authentic.

Sadly, Papa Bella has recently passed, but the family continues to carry on their mom and pop restaurant with the same warmth, quality food, and great service. Primarily a southern Italian style of pizza and pasta menu, they also do a superb meatball sub. This is a small, cozy restaurant located amongst the quaint boutiques and galleries of Matlacha. If...

Wanted to try their pizza on the 4th but they were closed. Sadly, I saw Pappa Bello passed away on the 2nd.

This place seems like a hole in the wall but surprises with food that makes your mouth happy. No advertising, the food does the talking. Thin, Roman style crust on the pizza makes it the best outside of New York City. The Gnocchi with marinara sauce is to die for. Lillian and Italo have a cult following and it is... More
