What a way to go, pasta heaven in a smaller portion and a cheaper price. Can feel like you had a luxury meal without the large portion or price. Love the undercover patio its like getting away without the long trip.

While visiting friends in Edwardsville, we went to this restaurant for lunch. Everything that was ordered was fabulous. We had toasted ravioli, salads and entrees and we all were more than pleased with the food and the price. If I lived there, I'd be a regular customer!

The house salad is delicious - the seating outside on the patio near a waterfall is a great place to eat an intimate dinner. The flatbread pizzas are good, as is the toasted ravioli. Sometimes the specials can be expensive, but there are cheaper options on the menu. A nice place for dinner, especially for Italian food.

This is my all time favorite restaurant in town. Best toasted ravioli ever and their marinara sauce is perfect. Not too spicy and just sweet enough, which also means their pasta is excellent. The salmon, the bread & dipping oil....I could go on and on. Oh, and Monday Martini night!!

I've been going to this resturant since it first opened many years ago. It's the best Italian food in the St. Louis area, and easily the best resturant in Edwardsville. The house salad is fantastic, the Cesar salad is great, and the strawberry is great too. Their lasagna is fantastic, their tortellini is great and the specials are always good.... More

Bella Milano has a great atmosphere, fantastic food and awesome service. Be sure and go on a. Monday night for $5 martinis and $5 appetizers. My favorite place to sit is the patio.

The food was very good and the quantity was more than enough. I felt the service was a bit slow on a less than packed night. Overall I would say the dining experience was simply Ok, not great or outstanding. I might have just caught them on a off night though.

I am originally from the east coast and Bella Milano is far from authentic Italian. Provel cheese is everywhere, bland and flavorless. I couldn't detect much of any spice especially garlic, basil, or oregano. If you like authentic Italian food then Bella Milano is NOT the place for you.

Have enjoyed lunch and dinner several times over the last few years at Bella Milano, and it's my go to favorite when craving an intriguing meal!! They lean toward Italian cuisine and yet also have delicious steaks and seafood. Their salads, including some seasonal varieties, have always been excellent. Amazingly, all the servers have been excellent and friendly! They must... More

My wife and I dine here for birthdays and anniversaries and always have a great meal. Salads are delicious. Steaks are mouthwatering but have had sauces that were too salty.
