We brought people back to Bella Costa last night and everyone was delighted with their meals, the service, the ambience and the cost. I had the veal parm and it was amazing. Was a huge portion and probably should have split it with my husband. There was one steak dish, one chicken and one seafood. Every one of the dishes... More

Bella Costa serves varied food, not all Italian, including fish, beef, lamb. The food is delicious, the wait staff terrific and very attentive. This is the local restaurant, a terrific change from chains. Paul and Bobby, as management, ensure everything runs smoothly and customers are happy. The Piano player all week long is a nice addition. We have also had... More

The menu is varied with many options of Italian specialties. I had the linguini and veal parmagian and my wife and a friend had Shrimp Scampi with spaghetti--all excellent and we had to take "doggy bags" with us. But we had to have dessert which was also very good with a variety of cakes and ice cream. Our waiter was... More

I am 67 grew up on a variety of well prepared cuisines, and I am pretty tolerant of just about anything put in front of me that is well prepared. Maybe the people I ate with are used to worse. Maybe they are used to having to wave several flies off of our drinks, I am not. We were inside.... More

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.
