While stranded at the Hilton Head airport where they only have cash vending machines I called Bella Italia to have pizza delivered for myself and other passengers that had been waiting for over six hours.

We have been going to this restaurant every year we visit Hilton Head for the past 4 years and I wish we had discovered it sooner! From pizza to pasta to salad, this place is AMAZING. I always order the Farmer's pasta - I look forward to it starting weeks ahead of our trip. The staff is warm and friendly... More

I wrote a great review of this restaurant last year. We went back again this year and the experience was terrible, due solely to their service. We ordered our food at 7:25PM and were told to come pick it up at 8:00. I finally got my food (which again was quite good) at 8:50PM. I was told the owner was... More

This place is tucked away in the corner of a strip mall and could be the best kept secret for Italian food on the island. I almost didn't want to do a review for that very reason. A local told us about it and now we make it a regular pizza destination. Excellent crust, flavorful and fresh tasting toppings, reasonably... More

The restaurant has quite a following. Portions of pasta are substantial and the salads are large. The pizza is thin crust and a nice size. The problem is that the quality is all over the board. Some nights it is very good and others it is fair. The last time there my wife became very ill. The staff is friendly... More

Our family went for dinner and everyone loved their dish. Huge portions, friendly and fast service, and the best Veggie Lasagna I've ever had.

We got take-out from here knowing that the leftovers would last for several meals. We got chicken parm, eggplant parm, spaghetti and meat balls and a large pizza. These aren't gourmet Italian dishes, just good old Italian red sauce meals that you would get up east in places like Buffalo or Pittsburgh. This food lasted for days, not just for... More

Hard to get into sometimes, but the pizza and pasta are really nice especially after an adventurous day.
