After hearing how wonderful this little restaurant is and I do we mean little, I made reservations for my birthday. Our waitress seemed a little flustered, did not know what the specials were but was friendly enough you didn't mind. My friends and I all had appetizers which were good they ordered the specials and I ordered the pollo melanzana.... More

Norbella is a relatively small (maybe 24 seats) Italian restaurant that is open year round on Route 28 in West Dennis. We went on a Sunday evening after the Cape Cod Symphony, and at 6:00, all the tables were filled, except ours with a reservation. It is imperative to have a reservation. Owned and operated by Chef Jeff & Emily... More

This small cottage style restaurant requires a reservation. The veal chop was superb. The chef was very accommodating with special veggie requests. The seafood scampi was just okay for the price point. Our service was excellent and our waitress had a nice sense of humor. Nice wine list.

Are you looking for a dining experience with outstanding Italian creations, professional waitstaff and a reservation policy you can count on??? Well, if you are on Cape, near West Dennis, this is your place. OK, for the second time this summer, my reservation time and the time I was shown my seat, was off by more than 20 minutes but,...

Service was horrible and we will not be back. We waited almost 20 minutes after sitting down before anyone even acknowledged us at the table. No bread or even water was served during this time. While having dinner no one even recognized we needed additional water or asked if we would like an additional glass of wine. The busser had... More

One the hidden gems on the cape. Always a great meal in a warm environment. Open year round so is a great winter retreat. Ate there last night and had bolognese which was fantastic.

What a cool little spot! Emphasis on little, there were about 6 tables inside. We dined in on a Tuesday and were seated right away. The waitress was the only one working front of the house, so she was quite busy but took good care of us. I ordered the seafood special and my girlfriend had the Penne Bolognese. Everything... More

This restaurant is very, very small. Approximately only 8 tables. Reservations are absolutely necessary. The food is cooked to order and the chef is willing to make anything that you desire. We have been there several times and were never disappointed.

Food very disappointing and overpriced. Waitress incompetent, rude and unsanitary. Place: shabby on the edge of filthy. I had grilled chicken breast. The chicken was "swimming" on my plate. Everything was soaking wet. Furthermore it had a crust and molten cheese mixed together. Absolutely discusting. The other plates were as disappointing as mine. Smoking is not my thing. But when...
