One of the best Italian Restaurants I have ever visited

I try to get here every time I head down to T or C, & love to share this gem with new friends. Out of 8 visits (would have been 10 but they were closed for two of them!), I'd say 6 were exceptional, 1 was very good, & 1 was...good. A fair example would be that I'm generally not... read more

Service was ridiculous and food was overpriced. Not on my list of favorite places to go when in T or C. Many other places to choose from.

A friend recommended this restaurant, so between that and the TripAdvisor reviews I was pretty sure that it would be good. After my experience the night before at Lattitude 33 and wasting money on a horrible and overpriced meal, I was a little leery about ordering one of my favorite dishes because of the price. But with urging from my... More

Service by Brendan was excellent, but the food was all tasteless. Shrimp Parmigana, Tiramisu, etc. just not good.

Recently, we've been traveling with our four footed friends, so we haven't gone into this restaurant except to pick up our to-go orders. The food is very fresh and the service exceptional even for to go orders. Staff waited on us and treated us as thoroughly as if we were seated...We actually ordered from there two nights in a row!!

Good food for a small town restaurant. Not many places to choose from and this was a quite little place near our hotel. Service was great! It was our second time eating here and I'd recommend it to others.

The food was spectacular. We want to go back just to eat at Cafe Bella Luca. The appetizer, shrimp pesto, was not only delicious, the presentation was beautiful. Every dish was superb. We even stayed for desert and it was in line with he rest of the meal. Savoring the food and atmosphere was entertaining. They even had gluten free... More

The menu was comprehensive, and we could've spent less. But we moved away from the pizza (probably an error on our part?) and had pasta. I had the roasted portabella, which was good, but cold in the center, with canned artichoke filling (cooking that filling to a tastier version (adding garlic and onion?, carmelizing that canned taste off?) and maybe...

We were hoping for a great New Year Eve dinning experience, but it went so wrong. All the servers looked to be in high school and totally inexperienced. None of the staff looked like they were in their twenties. The wedge salad was bland. All of the pasta dishes were overload with sauce and very little pasta! All in all... More
