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...

This place is located within a grocery anchored strip mall, but don't let that fool you. The food is great and the staff are friendly. The menu has good salads, appetizers and pasta. Prices are very reasonable. Can't wait to visit again to try more from the the menu. Good for families, clean restrooms, good parking.

I was in Raleigh on business and met some friends for dinner. The location is odd, as the restaurant is in a grocery-anchored shopping plaza. I was surprised by the depth of the Italian wine list and thought it was very reasonably priced. My entree and the wine were delicious. Here are my complaints.... We sat outside. The parking lot...
