This small place was one of the best local italian places I have been to in a long time and surprisingly it was next to a hotel I pass by everyday to work. I thought the menu was limited but the quality behind the food was undoubtful. I had the Rigatoni con Pollo and it was great. The service and... More

My wife and I wanted to go out for dinner and thought we try this place out. I was amazed by how small this place was and thought that the food would be pretty good based on the high prices. I was actually very pleased by the quality of the food, and my wife loved it. Only if the prices... More

My family and I went to this restaurant probably every Saturday prior to the ownership change. We had several family parties there and it was an exceptional restaurant. Since we hadn't been there in a while we decided to go for dinner. I don't know what was going on that night. I ordered the shrimp scampi over 'angel hair' pasta.... More

The GPS found it, it is on the side of a Comfort Inn on 46 East. It is a small cosy restaurant with the owner interacting with the diners. We shared a tomato and mozzeralla appetizer and my husband had veal and I had risotto. I had asked the owner about the preparation, as I have had some risottos that... More

Small portions for lunch, but food is excellent! Love the taste of everything, but can't afford a little pasta dish for $15 all the time. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, will go for dinner again!

i think this is the best italian food in this area. i have tried places in clifton,caldwell,fairfield and wayne. i think this has to be the best. the only negative to it is it was little pricey. but if you dont mind spending extra couple of dollars for great food you will be happy.

This was a lovely, small restaurant, service was excellent, the food devine. The salad dressing was wonderful, light and just enough to not drown the salad. My pasta was perfectly al dente. If you want liqour you can bring you own and they will open it and serve it for you.

Bella Piazza used to be one of our favorite restaurants: consistently delicious food, fair prices, and great owners and friendly staff. Unfortunately, the restaurant has been sold. We were shocked but decided to give it a try. Probably one of the worst meals we've had in a long time. The food had little taste, and was very obviously microwaved, with... More
