The wood oven pizza was perfect. Thin well cooked crust with a perfectly balanced marinara sauce made for a delectable pizza.

We hadn't been to Bella's in a few years, but yesterday when we went back it was amazing. It was authentic and the pizza and pasta were homemade.

My wife and I go to Bellas a few times each year. Usually the food is quite good and the service is fine. On the 24th we went and my wife really enjoyed her meal. Although I had to send mine back for a re-do, the second time was the charm. Having been on multiple occasions in the past, I... More

Looking for a restaurant in Tampa, we found this Italian restaurant through Trip Advisor. What a wonderful surprise. It seems to be an elegant, little neighborhood bistro where people can come and bring their children and have a nice meal. We were seated promptly, though it probably helped that we were there at 5:00. Our waitress, Ella, was amazing. She... More

True authentic food made and served fresh. This food doesn't appear to have ever even seen a heat lamp and desert never touched the air before hitting our lips it was so fresh.

Great spot for an Italian meal. Have dined there before and each time has been great. The waiter was very helpful. We all ordered something different and shared.

We were staying with family & friends over Christmas and felt like some Italian food. Bella's didn't let us down. We all had something different, including desert. All was very good. They make most all their pasta and it shows.
