Great little place

Took my family and parents for a late mother day dinner. We got there about half an hour after the opened and had a little wait. I herd the hostess say they get busy at 6. The dinning room looks small but does not feel that way. Our waitress was great and very knowledgable about the menu. The food... read more

We have eaten as a family at Bella Milano many times over the years, and have always had a great meal and a fun time! We began dining here as a couple, and after our children were born have continued bringing them to eat as well. Their food is reasonably priced for a nice atmosphere, and the portions are very...

After several visits, it is apparent that this is a well ran restaurant. The food is delicious. Best tomato soup I've ever had! Entrees are generous sizes. Management is on top of making sure your experience is good.

Upon entering Bella Milano on a Friday night at 6, we were greeted at the door and told that we would be seated right away. What a pleasant surprise. The owner or manager immediately came over and welcomed us and thanked us for joining them. We were seated, given our menus, and very soon waters were brought out. The warm... More

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.
