My friend had been to the Boone location of Bella's and said it was quite good, maybe we should try the Banner Elk restaurant. SO glad we did - we shared a Mediterranean Pizza and it was far above average. Thin crispy crust, plenty of high quality toppings and served piping hot just out of the oven. The service was... More

The food was excellent, especially the pizza. We were able to sit outside, which was a bonus. We loved this restaurant so much we went twice during our week trip to the area.

This is a wonderful Italian restaurant that has great pizza, as well. The staff is outstanding and very friendly and the food is awesome! It's convenient location near the Food Lion in Banner Elk is great if you are staying near Sugar Mountain.

My mom and I were recommended his restaurant by the hotel staff. It was outstanding!! I have never had such awesome fettuccini. The pizza (NY Style) looked wonderful as well (we did have a slice of thin crust). The owners are originally from Boston, so being here in the mountains of North Carolina it was a welcome surprise. There was... More

Went to this local eatery in a strip mall. A delicious sauce aroma is most welcoming. Busy dinner and bar, but the servers were attentive and food arrived quickly. So nice to be able to order a slice of pizza, which was good. Lasagna was average. Bread had way too much garlic for my liking.

We picked up a large pizza for a family of four. It was great. The perfect meal after a busy day rafting.

Our meal was absolutely excellent. I had Lasagna while my husband had the Shrimp Scampi. Both were excellent. The portions were so ample that we took them home and enjoyed them the next day as well. I had the house salad while my husband had a ceasar salad. Their rolls were very good also. They provide inside and outside eating.... More

I met a friend for lunch and we had a good lunch. I had the lasagna with marinara sauce. It was good. The garlic bread wasn't ready when the lasagna came out, but arrived soon after. The server was nice and friendly. We had to wait awhile to pay because our server did not have change. I would recommend Bella's.

We enjoyed Bella's. The service was great! Food was fantastic! I ordered vegetables with my balsamic chicken. Chicken was fantastic. I even ate all my vegetables (squash and zucchini) which I usually won't eat but these were excellent! All of us loved our dinners.
