Great spot. Very good food. A very quiet and pretty setting. Bella's is a wondeful addition to the local dining scene. The staff are very helpful and accomodating. Highly recommended.

I had centre cut beef,(prepared correctly the way... More

In an historic house in suburban Hamilton, Bella of Ancaster is well worth the visit. There is a small main dining room, a larger very bright solarium and a third room with adjacent patio. A small gift shop occupies an alcove near the bar area. The building and grounds are very nicely kept - an indication it turns out, of... More

I came here for dinner and regretted visiting this establishment. We had visited a few times prior and had decent meals, but this time my steak was chewy, and the dessert was a sloppy mess of whip cream and some strawberries. I wont be back, there is way to many good restaurants in the area.

Good and not so great! First, the grounds and the restaurant are beautiful. The ambiance is charming. Service was excellent, efficient, helpful, cheerful and was probably the hilights of our meal. We shared salmon cakes with banana relish for an appetizer. This was excellent and I give them a lot of credit for making such an original dish, which was... More

My experience at Bella's this past week was simply superb. The food was absolutely delicious and the service impeccable. I can't believe that hot waitress in the leggings is over 50 years old, wow - she's a beauty and obviously worked and trained in other fine dining establishments, as above average hospitality skills are so rare these days. We enjoyed... More

I normally don't write reviews about Restaurants.....but apparently I should. I dine out often and have been to Bella's several times with several friends and have nothing but great things to say. In saying that, it was much to my dismay that I read a review that was appalling! I don't know who this person was or where they came... More

I recently read a very mean-spirited review from CTC Employment..... they apparently liked the food but were very insulting regarding the less than Hollywood physique, and age of their server. What kind of people are they? Have they looked in the mirror lately. This is supposed to be the age of equal opportunity employment, with respect to gender, race, creed,... More

I went for a dinner and I was surprised to have live jazz. A nice surprise and created a great atmosphere. Was a lovely addition to my experience!

Enjoyed our first time visit! What a beautiful place... The inside is gorgeous! We really enjoyed our meals but unfortunately very over priced- chicken should never cost $28.00 and an iced tea $4.00. That would be our disappointment is the prices! But food and everything else is great!
