Despite a kitchen mix-up with our pizza order, we had a terrific meal on the patio at Bella Milano. We were given a $20 free entrée through their email club. We also had two salads along with drinks. Our waitress Nikki had the manager visit our table and arranged to have our order corrected, including comping our salads which were... More

Bella Milano barbecue pizza and house salad were fabulous. We got it "to-go" and thoroughly enjoyed the flavor and the crust of the pizza. Also, very much love the bacon on the house salad and the dressing.

Authentic Italian food in a pleasant atmosphere served by competent waitstaff. Sounds simple, but the temptation to try to do more had lead to less in my opinion. A return to basics seems to be on target if recent visit holds true. We enjoyed our meal last Sunday.

If you like Imo's you'll love this place. Otherwise, skip it. This is several notches down from the Olive Garden. They slop provel sauce on top of everytihng

We are proud to serve traditional and St. Louis-style Italian food which does sometimes include provel cheese - an iconic and commonly used ingredient in Italian cuisine throughout the Metro East area.

Bella Milano is an okay restaurant. Serves an Italian cuisine - but nothing to write home about. It may be a better bar than restaurant. It has a difficult time handling the orders of more than a couple of people. Expensive for what it offers.

Appetizer, entree, and salad were all very good. Mushroom duxelle flatbread with flash fried spinach is a great starter. The tortellini with peas and prosciutto was excellent.

The server was excellent!! The salad was delicious! I especially liked the bacon! I was extremely disappointed with their signature dish chicken Milano. The texture was sticky and too heavy. There was a glaringly lack of garlic everywhere. I did not even see a speck anywhere. The atmosphere was great but I think we will stick with Zia's.

Michele Thank you for the review of Bella Milano and glad you enjoyed most of your visit. The signature chicken dish you ordered, Chicken Milano, does have heavy cheese sauce. The menu description mentions that but I hope you will try one of our other much lighter chicken dishes on a return trip. Like me, you may prefer a dish... More
