Wife and I wanted spagetti and decided to try the Bella. Served nice hot fresh bread and some spiced olive oil, and was told to take our time to order. Had crab cake appetizers to start us off. Risky choice in SE MO, but ours were tasty and hot. You could actually see crab in them, and it wasn't crab... More

My wife and I prefer to dine at locally-owned restaurants when we travel. Cloth napkins and friendly staff are a good indication that the food will be good too, and it was. I ordered the chicken marsala and my wife had the veal cannelloni with wine and we were both pleased. It was very reasonably priced at $50 and a... More

We always know that we are going to get an excellent meal & service when we go to Bella! The food is always fresh & hot and the service is great. The one time we sent something back (only b/c the sign was incorrect for daily special) - not only did they correct it with a smile but comped the... More

Service is always great. Food is generally good with nice variety of pastas, sauces, entrees. Cleanliness is okay. Don't eat later in evening...bread appetizer with olive oil is great...except later in evening when bread gets over-cooked.

I had an excellent Gluten Free meal, shrimp scampi. The waitress knew a lot about Gluten Free and what she didn't know she asked the chef. I was extremely pleased with this restaurant and the service that I received. It was very reasonable for a good Italian meal.

This is great for celebrations. You get large plates, of good Italian food. Bread and olive are served with each visit.

Perhaps it is all related to expectations and what others have said, but my multiple experiences at this restaurant have been disappointing. The food reminds me of the scene in "National Lampoon's European Vacation" where the restaurant kitchen in Paris was microwaving frozen food and serving is as authentic cuisine. Change "Paris" to "Bella Italia". I might sound harsh, but... More

We are never disappointed at Bella Italia. We go for a casual dinner or a celebration and it is always suitable. I think each time that I will try something different, but I'm completely stuck on the Penne Europa, mmmmmm. My husband has tried nearly everything and has favorites, but hasn't found anything that he doesn't like, especially the dessert.... More
