Thursday night, Fourth of July Eve stopped at Bella's after food shopping. Short waiting line, packed restaurant, nice homey place though. Lots of locals at the bar and waiting for seating, cozy bar and friendly staff. Obviously good food and service from the comments I overheard at the crowded bar tables. Seating is tight but everyone seems happy here..patrons and... More

There are not a lot of good restaurants in the Banner Elk area especially if you are used to Charlotte or another larger city's food. That being said, Bella's is a good choice for the area. The pizzas are good, the kids love those, and the entrees are good and reasonably priced. So far I haven't found any food to... More

We wanted pizzas to take to the free concert in the park in Banner Elk. After seeing the terrible reviews for the other convenient place, I ordered from Bella's. What an excellent choice! I called at noon and asked to have the pies ready at 6. At 6, they were hot and ready. Checkout was a bit difficult; the place... More

This place was recommended by several people so we tried it. With 10 people we waited about 15 minutes as there was another large party. The server was quick and took our order for appetizers. The mozzarella sticks were standard, but the fried mushrooms were great. The kids ordered a cheese pizza and it was the best part of the... More

Arrived in town and met friends at Bella's for lunch. I ordered a ham sandwich, which was very good, but the pasta dishes looked so good we returned for dinner. Only here a few more days, but hope to eat here again before heading home.

Remember the commercial, Try it YOU'LL Like It? That's Bella's! All the great Italian Classics are here with excellent service and family oriented prices, this is a must in Banner Elk! We love the Pizza, Pasta, Chicken Parm and Chicken Marsalla just to name a few!

This is a great place when you want good food, reasonable atmosphere and excellent value. Sugarbear had the pizza and I had spaghetti. Very good and tasty and reasonably priced. Server was a little slow at first then got up to speed. Certainly a "go back a again" for great taste and great value!

The food was very good as always but what impressed us most was the server! He was friendly while professional, timely but not intrusive. We had a gift card to use but it didn't work. He tried it couple of times and then politely pointed out the card had Walmart in the bottom corner so probably could only be used... More

We discovered Bella's on our first visit to Banner Elk last summer. We came back this summer and went to Bella's two times. They have excellent Italian food and great service! We love their Italian Nachos!!

We read about this little gem on trip advisor and decided to give it a try. We ate in one time and got pizza for take out. On both occasions we received excellent service. The food was excellent... I had lasagna with meat sauce and was very good. The portions were large so I took mine home. We had a... More
