I have dined here several times over the years and the thing that impresses me is the consistency of the service and food. The menu is extensive enough that virtually anyone can find something to like. They do not take reservations, so if you arrive in prime dinner time be prepared to wait. If you are in the neighborhood, lunch... More

My wife absolutely loves their Chicken Milano and their signature drinks. For me, I go for the Pasta Three Way that includes a delicious meatball. When the weather is nice, the outside patio is a great spot to dine for lunch or dinner. When we are in the mood for Italian with a great ambiance, it's Bella Milano for lunch... More

You can not go wrong with some Bella! The tortellini is amazing. Actually i pretty much love everything about this place. Typically not a wait either. Which is nice, because everything in edwardsville has a wait.

Love Chicken Milano and their meatballs are awesome. Their lunch specials are reasonable and you can usually get in and out in less than an hour.

This is an Italian restaurant with traditional Italian fare, but having tried 2 different pasta dishes that were just ok I would recommend the fish tacos. They were very good and reasonably priced, especially considering the rather high prices. You may also want to visit at lunch time when the prices are much lower.

I'm not a big fan...but I do like the Salmon with the honey glaze. My family loves it, but I can take it or leave it...mostly leave it.

Our server was amazing. She was completely on point, from start to finish. Very nice mushroom and bacon soup. The small Caesar salad was crisp and well-finished. I really appreciated the grated parmesan & fresh black pepper. The angel hair pasta with peppers, spinach, dried tomato, and cheese is delicious, too.

The food was delicious and the restaurant was child friendly. We will definitely eat there again on another trip.
