Ambiance was nice!

The family that runs this is wonderful and hospitable. The food was good bit pricey. It appears they own their own building and thus likely have high overhead. I'm looking for good Sicilian cooking. My late husband had family from there. This was not quite what you hoped for but there are plenty... read more

Everyone told us we should go to Bella Italia, after all I like to support locals. Unfortunately, this place did not live up to expectations. The antipasto was great then it went downhill from there. I should have sent the salad back. The tomatoes had no taste, the lettuce was terrible and there was little else on it. I was... More

Stopped in for dinner with the wife on a Friday evening. First annoying item was there was a huge swarm of wasps in the lights by the front door, which is disturbing (I'm very sensitive to them-allergy-wise). We entered, and were asked about a reservation, which was surprising, as it was well into the dinner hour, and there were only... More

Restaurant is dark and gloomy, needs a little touch up and repair. Slight odor of dankness when you walk in the door. Shortstaffed but good service. Ordered lasagna on an early evening weeknight and they were out. What Italian restaurant runs out of lasagna on the slow weeknight? The portions were good. The marinara sauce was weak and watery. Quite... More

Party of two on a Friday night. They have a full bar which noted anywhere. Dinners came with a very fresh salad simple dressed with oil and vinegar. Bread came with dipping oil and garlic butter spread. Food was outstanding; server was friendly, helpful and efficient. Also had mixed drinks which were made well and reasonably priced.

I just returned from a business trip in which I hosted a group of 18 for dinner. I was very pleased with the choice. First, we were provided our own large room with one long table. Second, we were allowed to just stand and talk while drinking nice Italian wine for an hour with no push by them to speed... More

We had a very good dinner here. The service was a little slow but the food was amazing. I loved the dimmed lighting even tho I had to use my flashlight on my cell phone to read the menu. Trust the cooks and go with the special. They know what they're doing. No kids while we were there. Was able... More

Food and service was nothing bad or spectacular but during dinner the very large chandelier fell, hitting my husband leaving a welt and cut from his shoulder to his waist. They gave us fresh plates only after I said there may be glass shards in our food. This was my son's birthday and after all of this our food was... More

Bella Italia is a great place for pasta, particularly if you want to get away from the chain variety. Everything is homemade and fresh. The sauces are excellent. Servings are huge. They have a very good wine selection - both Italian and local wines are available. We have consistently had good food and good service here, and will continue to... More

We really enjoy the food here but the service was lacking the last time we went. It was a busy night and they may have had 2 servers at the most. So the wait was long for the food and the server wasn't too nice about it either. I would only go here for a special occasion and without children.
