Great Meal

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

Went here right after they opened for lunch on a Saturday. Seated right away. Food was great! Lots of it. Had the Baked Rigatoni. Families with small kids a couple of tables away and a group looked like they had booked a room for a shower.

My husband and I have been going to this restaurant weekly for about a couple of years now and the staff practically knows our order and where we like to sit. Thanks to the Stella rewards card we are able to save points and treat our friends for birthdays, etc. We get the impression that the owners/managers treat their servers... More

By far the most consistent restaurant in Lexington. I have never had a bad meal out of dozens of visits and the seasonal menu is different ever year. My only complaint is it is so popular now. PS Free snacks while you wait on Friday's and Saturday evening. The best

Though located in a slightly odd place, there are several other restaurants in this shopping plaza/automotive service/sales area. A very nice atmosphere, the service is great and food excellent. Been there several times and never disappointed. A bit on the expensive side.

The food is delicious, from the appetizers to the desserts, the ambiance is great, the servers are congenial and knowledgeable, and the prices are not off the charts. We took pictures of the entrees and posted them to facebook, they were so attractive. Portions generous but not out of control, and there is something for all food preferences.

This place has great food and a great atmosphere. They go out of their way to provide good service and is always a treat to dine here. It's a little dark inside but it's a little on the romantic side after dark. The homemade bread is worth the trip.

My wife and I dined at Bella Notte last night, the second time we have done so. The staff are attractive, friendly and efficient. My wife had the small Caesar's salad and pappardelle bolognese and I had a small caprese salad and the chicken Marsala. The food was well-prepared, flavourful and plentiful. The restaurant has a nice ambience and serves... More
