Very good, a pleasant change.

The food is very good! A great improvement over the "Italian Restaurant" that occupied the space before. Will be going back with more friends. The Calamari appetizer is fantastic.

I personally am not a fan of salty food so I wasn't impressed. My meal was more like ham and cheese than pasta carbanera (sp) my boyfriend has the pizza an loved it. I should have just ordered pizza almost everyone else there had. The service was great the experiance plesent.

I always get the white bean/ham and salad for lunch. Dinner never falls short either. Great pasta, wonderful salads and if you need gluten free meals, they have that too! Wonderful gluten free pizza and dessert!

My wife and I visited Bella's on two separate days, Saturday for lunch and Monday for dinner. At lunch on Saturday my wife had some absolutely delicious lasagna, while I dined on some of the best ravioli I have ever had anywhere.

Stopped in for lunch and had the lasagna with meat sauce. The lasagna was very good and the meat sauce was abundant and extremely tasty. Staff was friendly and plenty of places to sit. Would highly recommend this place. Maybe I'll be coming back for dinner!

The portion was huge and if I wasn't so hungry from pack backing all week I would have had plenty to take home but not this time. I... More
