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.

Love Bella Milano. We went for lunch on this particular day. I had the Milano salad and a bowl of tomato soup. Both were excellent. In general I order the chicken or beef Milano because I absolutely love the Milano sauce.

I have always been a fan of Bella Milano; it's always been above the local norm. However, the last time I went, for Sunday lunch, I was disappointed. The house salad was great as usual, but my entree, chicken piccata, was took up less than half the plate, drowning in an ocean of sauce. Other dishes at my table were... More

I chose Bella in Edwardsville as the spot to throw a surprise 40th wedding anniversary for my parents. Booked the back private room and the staff was truly amazing from my first phone call to reserve space, all the way through the conclusion of the evening event! James was the manager I worked with closely, helped me pick out the... More

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
