Lovely lunch - Reaxing Environment

Met two girl friends for lunch here. It was nice and quiet so we had the opportunity to catch-up and not be rushed out for the table. Roberto was wonderful - attentive, and friendly. All three meals were very generous and we all had enough left over for lunch the next day. Just returned from... read more

Our large family gathered at Bella Costa and the food and the attention to detail was wonderful. I spoke with both Paul and Bob about menu choices, seating, and bar service prior to arriving. When we arrived everything had been done to perfection. Give this wonderful spot a try!!

My family has gone to Bella Costa for years. My grandparents had their 60th wedding anniversary there. I always get a classic dish and they are always delicious. Everyone is polite. They are also catering my wedding in 2 weeks and am not worried about a thing. Thanks guys!!!

I used the Bella Costa for a six person business meeting; my office is in the area. The food was very good, and the service was excellent. This is not fine dining, it is very good, mid-range Italian food. The menu is varied, and the for presented in a traditional manner. I will absolutely, positively, use this again for another...

This is definitely a local family owned restaurant with a loyal clientele. The wait staff were quite friendly and helpful. I had the chicken combination plate with chicken parmesan and homemade pasta with mascarpone Alfredo sauce. The alfredo sauce was a little piece of Heaven, creamy and delicious. The chicken parmesan was good, but not outstanding. This is a great... More

Bella Costa is a family restaurant that serves a middle market customer base. It's neither fine dining nor low end dining. Given what it aims to be, Bella does a nice job. The food, service and prices were above average. The main dining room is nothing to write home about, but it's not bad. The live piano player on the... More

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 came across this place while driving around and decided to try it. We were not disappointed. They were very friendly and helpful, service was really good. And the food was just as good. They make their own bread which was great and the appetizers were wonderful too! We split a crab cake and calamari and enjoyed both. Our entrees... More
