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

The food in Bella costa is fantastic but what makes it even better it is always the same quality and taste. If I order ravioli today they are the same as the ones I ordered three weeks ago so you always know how great I will be and it will never disappoint you. I can’t say enough about this restaurant...

The food is good to very good. Busy on the weekend night we had dinner. People seem to like it for good food at reasonable prices, the homey atmosphere in the main room. Not wild about the 2nd room, which I think they should just use for larger or private parties and offer it to walk-ins. People with reservations should... More

The food and service are just wonderful, with a pretty good selection to choose from - lovely place for couples. My best friend practically lives there.

We stopped in for lunch and were promptly seated. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. I got the veal Parmesan which was delicious! My daughter had pasta and marinara and loved it. We also got dessert- mousse for her and cheesecake for me. They were both great. We will definitely be back.

When we went to Framingham from Pennsylvania to meet our new granddaughter we thought we would bring dinner, so we got take-out from Bella Costa. The lasagna and eggplant parmesan were good, but the antipasto salad was OK. It was field greens salad with some proscuitto and salami laid on it. Not very imaginative, but OK. I would do it...

I've been going to BellaCosta for the past 25 years. The food is great, flavorful and consistent If there's something on the menu they will accommodate your taste. Not too many places do that. Other places give you the "no substitution" excuse. Not this place. The owners are awesome. They are here most of the time.. If not Bobby the... More
