Always a winner

Consistently good Italian inspired food, clever seasonal dishes, great value and friendly service. Something of an institution after close to twenty years!

This is my second trip to Bella Notte (the first some years ago) and it did not disappoint. The atmosphere is terrific, matched only by the food. Our server was knowledgable and attentive, answering questions about the menu and making strategic suggestions. The portions are generous. The real standout is also the bread which is amazing and ample. Don't miss... More

My fiance and I had our first date at Bella Notte 7 years ago and have been coming back ever since. The food is amazing and fresh. The atmosphere is romantic and the staff are friendly and professional. Some dishes are a little pricey but they are worth every penny because they are always delicious. In the 7 years we... More

Very impressed with this restaurant. The food was delicious and prices on the food was not too bad. Alcohol however, was a bit pricey. The restaurant is beautifully decorated with a large tree inside that you can sit under. I would compare this restaurant to a cheaper version of Olive Garden. Same quality but definitely half of the price. Our... More

The soup and salad lunch is an amazingly good bargain and the food is delicious. They also serve bread and dipping with it, rounding it out to a substantial meal.

This is a first-class restaurant with very reasonable prices and expert service. Our waiter, Paul, took very good care of our road-weary family, sending us off with an extra loaf of warm bread to go with our leftovers. $83.00 for a family of four with two glasses of wine, four entrees, and four salads seems more than fair to me,...

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!!

After we checked into our Lexington hotel we searched for a restaurant with gluten free options. We were surprised when an Italian restaurant came up. We asked at the hotel and were told this was a good choice. On a Wednesday evening we had immediate seating. Our server Ryan was great. Our daughter was happy to see that any pasta... More

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
