Great Beyond Words!

My aunt from Fort Worth, TX, comes in once a year. This is where my family stops to eat when I'm taking her back to the airport. Everyone always, without exception, raves about how great the food is! The service is outstanding, too. Mike did an awesome job taking care of us. Today we had a range of... read more

I took my fiance to Bella Notre for a romantic dinner and she loved it. It was her first time there and we had a awesome time. We were under the tree with the lights on. The dinner was excellent and the atmosphere was very romantic and the staff was perfect.

When our Lexington motel suggested several restaurants in the area, we tried Bella Notte. What a delightful find! Our first intro was a round of warm bread served with a wonderful herb and oil mixture. My husband ordered the Veal Marsala and I ordered the special Veal Picatta. The Bella N version of Veal Picatta was to die for: artichokes,... More

My husband and I went here for our anniversary dinner because of the large number of gluten free options. And wow, it surpassed our expectations. You know how it is if you're gluten free; sometimes the gluten free accommodations really are not comparable to the quality of the regular menu. Not so here. I didn't feel like I was sacrificing...

We have been exhausted by our last several attempts to get good Italian food so we were majorly surprised by our experience at Bella Notte. The restaurant has a beautiful ambiance better fit for a date, but they have been one of the most accommodating staff for our children (6, 3, and infant) of any restaurant we have ever been....

Have had nothing bad here at all. Great Marsala. A very light flavor. Caesar Salad is great. No killer anchovy flavor. Just a light taste here too. Love it!

I have eaten here several times and the food is always good and the service friendly, the prices are a little high I think, but the food is worth it.

First time here and I'm impressed with how quickly we got out order placed and our food was brought out. The bread and herbs with oil was very good; bruschetta and caprese are worth ordering. The lasagna was middle of the road and my kids really liked their pizza. Service was excellent and we were seated right away. We will... More

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