Excellent Food, Service and Value

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... read more

For some reason, this restaurant doesn't fit its surrounding....it needs to be in a lovely setting of trees and rolling scenery. Just step in side, and you will feel like the Italian countryside. Beautiful scenes on the walls, lit fig trees and best of all, Italian cuisine. You will soon forget the concrete that surrounds as the smells and tastes... More

This was my favorite restaurant for Italian food in a Lexington for years. However, we went with three other couples for dinner on a Friday night and it was very disappointing. Service was slow and she struggled to take our order. Our food didn't all come out at the same time and many of our favorite dishes had changed. We... More

I ordered the lasagna with traditional meat sauce. I couldn't find any meat in the dish. The taste was not good. Appetizers were good.

This has always been one of our "go to" restaurants when we just want to enjoy a delicious dinner. Our server, Hillary, was very nice and attentive. She brought us a nice Italian wine, some warm bread, and some herb and olive oil dip, and took our dinner order. Because Lexington had been snowed in for 3 days, Bella Notte... More

Abundant parking. Easy to get to from the airport. Nice decoration and music. Great Italian vibe. Loved the Warm paper wrapped fresh bread. Food was very good. The special was filet tips with pasta and sun dried tomatoes. Fantastic. My server and the staff were friendly and attentive

My husband surprised me and made reservations, which was nice to be able to do. This visit was our first. The Atmosphere was very nice and I really enjoyed the feel inside. The food was only ok. My husband and I both felt the same, we had had better.

MY wife and I dined here with another couple over the weekend. Previously, I considered this spot in the top five restaurants in Lexington, however this visit was just ok. My salmon green salad with aspargus was nice, but not outstanding. My penne arrabraita was average, and the pasta seemed to have served some time in a steam table. We... More

Went mid week, not crowded, seated quickly. Service was quick and gave us plenty of time to choose and told us of their specials. They have bread and dipping oil on the table and replenish when low. We ordered apps, from the grill and pasta dishes, all very good . (no salads w/entrees) (Only bad thing was a group of... More

Great atmosphere and service. Food is always delicious! We come here anytime we are in the area. Calamari, salmon, fettuchinni are all great.
