Bella's is an Italian restaurant specializing in Pizza (per our server). And the Pizza is excellent. As is the tap beer selection. Prices are fair. Indoors the atmosphere is nice, but we ate outdoors, where we had a spacious table and great service.

We were told about Bella's by a friend in Boone. Well he was right! The pizza was delicious! The spaghetti and meatballs were rich and flavorful! My wife had the lasagna and said it was almost as good as her moms! Now that's saying something! The portions were large enough to share and the service is great! Mama Mia try... More

Excellent calzones and pizza. That wad all we had but it was excellent. We ate carry out from there two times during our 7 day stay. It was however very small for the amount of business.

After an afternoon of zip lining at Hawksnest we wanted good food but did not want to cook. The place is in a strip mall but don't let that deceive you. It was packed. Took about 20 minutes to sit our table of 10 which is not bad for 6:30 on a Saturday evening. Good food. Friendly staff. Live music.... More

Loved Bella's enough to return, but we won't be back. There was hair in my sons food, we sent it back. We were told it would be removed from the bill. My son didn't want to eat more, so the waitress offered to replace it to go. Bill came, they charged us... Manager said it was because they replaced it... More

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
