We opted to eat in the bar area since we had a party of 6 on a very busy Saturday night to avoid a lengthy wait. The service did not suffer due to our choice. The server refilled my water glass 3 times without me requesting, and she was very prompt with bread refills and to-go containers. I had the... More

Our group of 6 were in town for the horse racing and selected this restaurant based on trip advisor ratings. The food was very good, service was great, and our waiter made certain food preparation was exact for one of our group who has certain food allergies. A wonderful experience. We would return here on a future visit to Lexington.

Nice atmosphere, excellent service, good food. We had dinner at Belle Notte on Thursday night. Our waitress was exceptional! Bottles of wine are half price on Thursday! Good basic Italian food with prices & selections similar to Carabbas. Better to go with a good local than a chain.

We had a great dinner last night at Bella Notte. Since our friends have a small child, we decided to eat here and had a great server. The food was delicious, and I tried one of their wood-fired pizzas for the fist time, the Parma, and it was superb. I will get it again.

Great food and service. Enjoyed a family size pasta dish and 2 individual pastas. Plenty of left-overs! The $2 side salads are delicious and a pleasant surprise compared to many places that charge $5-6 for a side salad. Our waiter was provided great service and was very helpful with explanations. Recommend reservations so you don't have a long wait.

I really enjoyed dining here. The service was excellent. The lighting was perfect for a romantic dinner and the calamari was excellent.

I read many great reviews on here and decided to take my wife here while we were in town for a UK game. I would recommend reservations during peak hours. We had them and didnt have to wait like the horde in the lobby and outside. The food and service were excellent. We tried different seasonal items and all were... More
