This resatuarant in the Food Lion shopping center not far from the entrance to Sugar Mountain is heavily visited by locals, but the wait for seating, if you don't have reservations, moves fairly quickly. They serve mostly Italian oriented dishes and they are prepared nicely. We have returned often and always been treated well and fed well.

We were staying close to ski for the weekend and this place was recommended by our real estate company. We were not disappointed! Very busy, but we chose no wait and to sit at the bar. We had a glass of Merlot and the Lasagna, which was wonderful! If you are in the mood for italian - you must stop... More

After looking at other reviews of places to eat locally we found this to be one of the top rated and we are so thankful we stopped in for dinner! The service was great and the managers were extremely friendly and we enjoyed watching them doing magic with little kids at other tables :) The food is super delicious! I... More

Mamma Mia this place is awesome especially after a day on the slopes!! They have local craft beers to start you off if you parlay that with their homemade Stombolis you will be in hog heaven. If you feel like eating a little on the lighter side may i suggest the absolutely delicious Chicken Marsala! Love coming to this place... More

We were on our way out of town and needed a quick lunch. We walked in at 11:50 and asked if it was reasonable for us to get food quickly as we needed to be on the road by 12:30. The hostess immediately said "oh yes!" and seated us. The waitress was rude when we asked her about their soups... More

Fresh pastas and sauce, huge portions. Got there just ahead of the crowd. There was about an hour wait on pizzas, based on the other good it was probably worth the wait. Delicious!

This is a very good Italian restaurant. We always plan one night out at Bella's when on our girlfriends weekend away. A must on our list of places to eat.
