Best Italian value on the island

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... read more

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

This restaurant was first recommended by our concierge, and it is now an annual stop. My personal favorite is the Italian Casserole, but everything is delicious. Great pizza, too.

We were looking for a simple Italian restaurant where we could eat with our kids in a family setting. We did not want long waits and unusual food. We just wanted basic Italian dishes! The food here was made fresh and the whole family enjoyed their meal.

We have been going to HH for 20 plus years and every year we try a new place. This year we finally found a place to go back to again for GREAT pizza. They are fast and friendly and know how to take a phone order without sitting on hold for ever. (a common problem on HH)

Had dinner with friends last night at Bella Italia. As always the eggplant was excellent. Can't make it like that at home!

I had the italian casserole. It was very good. Meatballs and the sauce were good. This is a local restaurant hidden in a shopping center. The garlic bread was tasty. I would recommend!

We ordered Veal parmigiana and eggplant parmigiana...they brought chicken instead of eggplant, waiter couldn't tell the difference between the meals. The Veal had more breading than veal. The sauce was bitter and difficult to eat. The eggplant had a strange taste. I was sick for 2 days afterwards. most people in the restaurant ordered pizza, maybe they knew something we... More

In response to your comments, I am wondering why you did not take your displeasure to our staff. We try very hard to make each customer happy! We are Family owned and operated. and make our sauce daily! As for our Veal and Eggplant they are cut and prepared each day. I look forward to speaking to you personally, feel... More
