Food was extremely good, the rooms in this restaurant/old house are beautiful. Well decorated, and attentive service. Every one had something different in our party of four, and all was delicious. You do have to realise it is very pricey, but worth it.!

We have been to The Philip Shaver House/Bella's over the years and when we discovered that they had planned a special menu and jazz duo for the occasion we asked if they could book us... More

We attempted to make a reservation for dinner for four people. My husband e-mailed and received no response. The website stated that they were in fact open on a Tuesday night. Later that morning, he phoned the restaurant and left a message. No one responded. We took the chance that the reservation was in place. Unfortunately, we were wrong. The... More

Friends took me out for my birthday to Bella’s this past Saturday evening. The historic house had a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere. The tables are well spaced and set beautifully. Our meals were flawless, as was the service provided by Cathy. She picked a good wine to accompany our varied meals. We will be visiting again and again to sample the... More

Bella's is our favorite restaurant and we love it. The food is wonderful and the service and surroundings are amazing. Food is really well prepared and will accommodate for vegetarian and other preferences. The very best for romantic dinners or mid day lunch.

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
