I first chose Bella Monica for a double date spot in 2013 because of their reviews and gluten-friendly rating. From the outside, you will think its the wrong restaurant because there is a generic sign overhead that says "pizza" and its anchored in a shopping center. I was blown away with how charming it is! The owners must work open-close... More

I have frequented this restaurant for several years now and I've been consistently pleased with every visit. There are very few restaurants in the area that can deliver quality on every visit. But, Bella Mia delivers every time! The food, the warm cozy atmosphere, the attention to detail and most of all... the staff and service are excellent. I think... More

We went here for a client meeting - #1 it was too loud #2 they took over an hour to bring our food (we established they forgot). The good thing was that they comped us. Will try again but probably not with a client in case of a repeat.

Bella Monica is a restaurant that unless you were looking for it, you probably would not find. It is in a strip shopping center near Rex hospital in Raleigh. They have a little bit of outdoor seating (about 8-10 tables). They are overlooking the parking lot, but they have done a good job of keeping it separate. You are always... More

this restaurant has wonderful atmosphere and I had been here about a year ago. Chosen for it's Gluten Free menu the first thing I noticed was that the prices had almost doubled, not too busy for lunchtime but service was slow even though I had called ahead for reservations. My salad had a lot of greens, two small slices of... More

I chose this restaurant because of other reviews. I got take out from Bella Monica- salad and a flat bread on a week night. They were very helpful on the phone answering questions since I had never been to the place before. Although the spinach salad had lot of interesting toppings, it wasn't overall very tasty. Something about it just... More

A little difficult to find - just look for 'pizza' on the bldg. it's definitely worth it. The food is very good and I found the service to be solid. We went right before they closed and the staff treated is as kindly as the first customers of the day.

I ate here for a business lunch and had the small Frisco flatbread pizza. The favors were delicious and the bread was light and crispy. The small was enough for one person, but if you are really hungry you might want to add a salad. The bread which came with the meal was addictive. Can't wait to return for dinner... More

My wife and I went here for dinner and found this place to be one of the best Italian restaurants in the area. I have eaten lunch here on occasion and always had a good experience but, this was the first time we tried dinner. The restaurant is unique in that the layout and decor are very ordinary but, the...
