Enjoyable Italian restaurant

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... read 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

Wonderful atmosphere. Great menu featuring not only Italian favorites but a great seasonal menu with Kentucky farm produce and other products. Choices for those watching calories. Excellent wine selections and very attentive service. Lots of room for large groups of 6 to 8. Also many small tables for an intimate meal.

My husband and I were in Lexington end of March for RunTheBluegrass, and I made reservations about 3 weeks out. We arrived and it was packed! But we were seated within 5 minutes. Our waiter was great, chatted with us, made recommendations, and we had a wonderful dinner! It's a family style restaurant so we ordered a salad to share... More

I have long been a fan of Bella Notte but always had to avoid the pasta dishes as they are made with wheat pasta. But, the wonderful restaurant now has a complete Gluten Free menu and are also willing to adapt any recipe that is not gluten free. And the best part.....absolutely delicious! Cannot say enough about this fabulous restaurant.

The ambience of this locally owned Italian Restaurant is delightful with vines, trees and arbors inside the facility. The menu was variable satisfying everyone in our group. The waitress was helpful but not intrusive as she waited on our table. We would be sure to stop back if we are in the Lexington area again.

Usually TA posters are right on the $$$ about a place. Not this time. Giving them an "average" was a stretch. Four of us ordered drinks and main courses. The main couses literally came out five minutes after the martinis. No bread..that came out after the entrees were served. Our server was either inexperienced or jsut plain bad at her... More

Every time I dine in this restaurant I am impressed by everything about it. They have finally put my fave dish on the menu, piccata, (chicken or veal) and I was delighted. I may never get this dish from anywhere else, ever again. It was good to perfection with the right amount of lemon and capers. The atmosphere was lively... More

We were a party of 6. They were out of a few items, but we did arrive later in the evening. Portions were good and food was tasty. Waitstaff was attentive. We enjoyed dining there.

Wanted a casual dining experience with a nice ambiance, great food and service. We were NOT disappointed! Our waitress Annastacia was phenomenal - friendly, excellent recommendations, attentive, positive and a beautiful smile. Going to college and working hard at the Italian restaurant. The warm bread with garlic dipping herbs was wonderful. Our pasta dishes -a Gorgonzola dish and a spicy... More
