Looking for good "Italianish" food, can't be beat

While not truly authentic Italian, Bella Notte has delivered excellent quality food for many years in Lexington. Their prices are very reasonable in comparison to what you will find compared to other "Italian" restaurants in Lexington. They also have a divine burger if you have a craving for a... read more

We were happy with the atmosphere, the service and the food once again. Their tomato basil soup is great! It wasn't crowded today but does get that way quite often. I think that is a sign they are doing things well.

Came in on a Friday afternoon around 3:00 pm. We were a party of 7. The restaurant was by no means packed. We were seated outside on the patio. One member of our party was on the end no way could he eat. I politely asked if we could move tables after clearly seeing there were several available. I was... More

Had higher expectations with generally good reviews. When arrived the restaurant was very busy. Had a reservation and was seated quickly. That was the highlight of the evening. The drink order required 3 trips to get correct and complete. The food came in waves instead of being served together. One meal never came and we ended up canceling the meal.... More

Very beautiful restaurant. Salad dressings homemade and delicious bread. Ravioli with meat sauce was just okay but fettuccini Alfredo was very good.

This place is on the verge of being truly Italian. They are doing so much right. Cool atmosphere with good wine and pasta. You can almost get the full experience sipping campari and grapa. If the staff understood the Italian experience a little better with how to serve different wines and pairing and appertifs and digestifs and such, it would... More

My husband and I have been going to Bella Notte for the last 15 years together and it is one of our favorites. We love sitting under the lighted tree. The complimentary bread is fantastic and we always finish it off. This restaurant is very reasonably priced and I have tried several items on the menu and have never been... More

The lighting, music, and overall atmosphere of Bella Notte was terrific. The bread and olive oil served before the meal is without a doubt the best I ever had. The entrees were decent, and the desert delicious.

We wanted Italian food and were impressed with the menu and the prices. Ordered the sweet potato croquets and veal piccata signature dinner. They were both done to perfection. Vanessa was great! Very attentive and ready to please.
