What an amazing meal? I really need to eat here more frequently. The Brussel sprouts are insanely good. Perfect Caesar salad. Calzone and Flatbread out of this world. Make a reservation and you will not be disappointed.

We made reservations for 4 through Open Table and because we'd been there before, we knew where it was. Not sure why their name is not on the building. Music was appropriate although a little loud given the restaurant had few patrons when we got there. Service was incredibly slow and it appeared there was one waiter for most of... More

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.
