Really good food in a beautiful setting! The scallops, linguini & Parmesan sauce was fabulous! My husband loved his Penne Gorgonzola with Chicken. The calamari was excellent!

I love going to Bella Notte. The food is delicious, service is good, and the restaurant atmosphere is charming. Be sure to sit near the huge indoor tree covered in lights!!!

We drove over to Lexington for the day and used Trip Advisor to find a nice meal for the evening. What a wonderful surprise to find this locally owned place near a large shopping area. The food, atmosphere, and service at Bella Notte were impressive. We'd definitely go back when we're in the area.

We had scallops and they were absolutely amazing. From the size, to the sauce, to the thick sear on one side, they were the best I've ever had.

Love to eat local. This was a great meal. Fresh ingredients, local ingredients. Price was very reasonable. The seasonal soup, the coriander chicken, bread and evoo dipping sauce, and Gorgonzola penne were all very good. The panna cotta was over the top. Decent wine list, servers who are foodies, and good ambience. We will be background on our next trip... More

I really like Bella Notte and have eaten here often. Everything on the menu is good and I have yet to order anything here that I did not like. It has a soft, and a bit of a romantic atmosphere with the lights and the fireplaces, but I certainly wouldn't hesitate to take children. Friends of mine were engaged at... More

My family visits Lexington quite frequently. We must have been there a few dozen times. This is always the #1 choice and it always delivers. I've even had them cater my wedding, but I'll save that story for another day. Their seasonal menu always varies and is excellent. There is a great variety of pasta and fresh fish is quite... More

Have been to Bella Notte > 10 times and every time is excellent. The executive chef is classically trained in NY and is gifted. Pork chops, wood-fired pizza, chicken marsala are all excellent. The atmosphere is cozy with a strong Mediterranean feel. My relatives from Italy raved about the authenticity.
