Gem off the interstate

We stopped here on the way home from Disney World. This is a small family owned pizzeria. Nothing fancy, but the food is good, especially after all the commercial restraints I-95 is lined with.

I have eaten at many nice, luxury restaurants that have got such an incredible service, in many countries around the world. I have never got such a horrible experience anywhere else except at this 'Pizza Bella' restaurant in Ridgeland, South Carolina! It is the only buffet restaurant in the world that the waitresses do not allow us to get any... More

Waitress that waited on me is also in my mugshot magazine! I would think they would do background checks...

What a great place for a lunch buffet! Today I had fab pizza, perfect catfish, creamy red skin mashed potatoes, bbq chicken, and a nice salad off the salad bar.

The day before we tried Pizza Bella, we went to a "B-B-Q Buffet", which turned out to be a Chinese buffet about one table length long and while adequate, it was very disappointing. So when we saw Pizza Bella's "buffet" we were skeptical but hungry. OMG! We were NOT disappointed. Their pizza was fresh with great tasting dough and a... More

For our taste, the crust was tender and juicy and we picked the ingredients we preferred. We don't like thin, hard crusts. the front desk woman was friendly and helpful and we brought our pizza back to our hotel. there is no delivery.

Was traveling on I 95 and stopped in for a lunch buffet to go ! Learned that I was limited to one meat & two sides, no problem ! Then an employee escorts me to the buffet line and fixed my plate for me ! Not cool !! It's a shame they do this ! Not again !!!

Stopped off during a road trip from Virginia to Florida. We selected this place because we knew our daughter would eat Pizza. To our surprise they offer much more than Pizza. We ordered the lunch buffet which had 5 types of pizza, salad bar and hot food bar which was all homemade! Hot hamburger steak, fried chicken, fried cod, mashed... More

Pulled off i95 in Ridgeland to grab lunch. Wasn't interested in the normal fast food places. Decided to try Pizza Bella. They offered a buffet lunch when we were there. I enjoyed a great salad - my daughter preferred the pasta and the ice cream bar. Seems to be popular with the locals as all the other customers had southern... More
