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...

My wife and I had lunch here the other day and enjoyed a very pleasant afternoon outside! We moved once because of heating from the sun, but our servers were very nice about it. Everyone at BM was extremely friendly and professional! I had the small Margherita flatbread, which was certainly big enough for lunch. My wife enjoyed the Arugula... More

What an amazing meal we had last night. We took some friends for dinner who had never been. Three of the 7 diners were eating gluten free. Bella Monica offers a special gluten free menu - even chicken parmesan. One of the people with us hadn't had that in 20 years due to her special diet. She was amazed. What... More

My girlfriend and I made reservations for 8.30 on a Sat night for a much needed date night. We have been here to this restaurant one time before and it was delicious. We ordered the roasted mushrooms for a appetizer and it is out of this world. We definitely recommend this for a great beginning. Not sure what all it... More
