The service was average or about what you'd expect at such an expensive restaurant. Apparently, the Lexington folks really like this place because it was plenty busy when we were there. However, I was not impressed with any aspect of this restaurant. Save lots of money and frequent Oliver Garden instead!!

We went there for the second time Thursday night. No wait; service was perfection as it was meant. Thomas C was our waiter. Waiter made a few food suggestions, which one in our group tried. Everything was great, perfect, delicious, etc... not enough words to verbalize how good it was. Warm bread with olive oil and spices were a great... More

My husband and I went here for our anniversary dinner on Sunday, and we were very pleased. We went around 5pm and there was no wait so we were escorted right to our table. The restaurant atmosphere was nice. I liked the decor with the large tree in the middle of the dining room. We had two servers (one was... More

It was delicious! Will be returning next time in town. The Rose Spritzer from the summer cocktail list is a MUST! And the bread is fabulous!

Have dined at Bella Notte for a long time, and we are always satisfied. Menu is well thought out, wine selections appropriate. Service is always outstanding. Excellent mid-priced Italian.

Dinner was good and filling. You must pay for everything separately so ended up being high priced. Pasta la Bella was delicious. Tomato basil soup very good. Atmosphere was very nice. Miami and Tyler took care of us and did a very good job. There smiles were genuine and appreciated.

I frequent this place about 1 to 2 times a month and my wife and I always leave happy. The bread is served with olive oil and spices for dipping. The fresh mozzarella frito is a great appetizer. Everything that we have had on the menu has been well executed... The filet mignon is fantastic, the pesto pasta and lasagne... More

Recently went here with with siblings and spouses on a family vacation, Thursday night. Seated promptly and server took and delivered drinks in good order. Orders were placed, which included salads for half of us. fifteen minutes later entrees arrive without salads ever being received. Food here is touted as authentic Italian, but in truth is more chain like and... More

We were looking for an Italian restaurant and found this place that had good reviews. We were not disappointed. The service was great. They try to use locally grown products. We had wine with dinner. We were with another couple and two of us had a chicken piccata pasta dish which was light and tasty. My wife had a gnocci... More
