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

We read the reviews on Tripadvisor and thought we would try this place. When we arrived around 6:30pm on a Saturday night, the place was empty. We ordered a large mushroom, onion and sausage pizza. While the toppings were plentiful, and the ratio of sauce to cheese as we requested (heavy sauce, light cheese), my friend and I both thought... More

Don't let the appearance fool you. The food is outstanding and the owners are beyond friendly, you're family. Definitely stop by for a bite.
