One of our go-to places and has been for years. Never a bad meal or thoughts of never returning. No matter what we get it is always great and we have brought many people there who have returned themselves. People are very friendly, good home-made pasta and wonderful steaks too. Specials are always interesting, good wine & cocktail choices. If... More

I loved the food the first time I went to Bella Costa but this time I was surprised and disappointed. I wanted to celebrate my niece's graduation so we made reservations. When we arrived at the appropriate time we were seated immediately. The waiter was there fast and asking for drink orders before we could open a menus. It was... More

Bella Costa is hidden in a strip mall. Don't let the location inside this strip mall cloud your reason for going. It is worth the trip. There is a small comfortable dining area with bar. A piano player is usually there in the evening and I believe Sunday brunch timeframe. The food has a home cooked quality (homemade pasta) and... More

For some reason, several years ago, we stopped going to the Bella Costa. It's Greek owned and serves continental cuisine. We saw some recent reviews and decided to try it again. We've been there twice recently; bot times the food and service were outstanding! To begin with, the Owner is in the kitchen; and he's a perfectionist. I've had two... More

There are a lot of restaurants to choose from in Framingham, MA but many of them are chains. Bella Costa is a private family owned restaurant & it never disappoints. I prefer to sit at the bar because I like the atmosphere, as the piano man plays at night. The tables service us equally as good. The food is consistently... More

Went there with my family this past weekend and I must say the service was terrible. I did notice a sign stating that the restaurant was looking to hire an employee. I must say that the brunch was very good,but I did not like the fact that I waited nearly 30 minutes for a drink.The staff was not organized at... More
