Lovely Place for Dinner

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've been here many times; it is one of nmy wife's favorites. They make a great drink, the staff is always friendly and the menu is varied.

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...

We have been going here for many years and have always Loved the food. A new baby means that we felt is was easier to order out. The last two (2) times we did so, were terrible. We picked up an order on Saturday Jan 10, 2015. The main meals were ok, not great. The anti pasto salad which was... More

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

Have been here in the past and it was excellent and clean. Went this week and it was not good. Waitress was poor and the bathrooms were very dirty.

This is the worst Italian restaurant I have ever tasted. The pasta was very over cooked and chicken had no taste the sauce was tasteless and I really felt like I was eating at school cafeteria level. Absolutely not worth $60 dinner for two. Salad dressing was really bad also. Never going back.

We had a pretty good meal here after not visiting Bella Costa since our kids were quite small. (they are 22 and 25 now!) It was always "pretty good", but fell off our radar for some reason. One of the best things they do is serve freshly made/in house pasta and it is indeed what makes it stand out. Our... More
