My family and I stopped overnight in Kennewick,WA on our trip home. The girls at Hilton said that this was the best restaurant in town, so we had to try it. We all regret that choice!!! The building and the interior of the restaurant was beautiful and resembled an authentic Italian charm, however, the food was anything but great. I... More

Bella Italia is a hidden gem in the Tri-Cities. The food, service and atmosphere are wonderful! First, the restaurant is an authentic italian style, combining a relaxed and easy, relaxed atmosphere. Don't expect service to be speedy...relax and enjoy the company you came to dinner with. Second, the food is outstanding. My favorite is the dinner special, which always includes... More

Good red sauce, fairly good melanzane except for excess oil dripping from the serving, good vinaigrette dressing. Prices high for what you get. The headache from high noise level is extra. Badly in need if some noise abatement efforts!

Beautiful place, amazing atmosphere, wine was great! The food... just ok. Though, I do have to say the dessert was extraordinary!! I think it's worth going at least once, as long as you save room for dessert.

The owners are from Rome so do not go expecting Olive Garden. Real food. And the herbed butter is so so so good. Wine list is a dream come true. Try outdoor seating for lunch in the summer. Almost feels like Italy.

What an experience. The menu is truly reminiscent of Italy. Many choices and courses to choose from. Family owned and an authentic ambience adds to the charm of this restaurant. Skip the franchises and make this a date night.

Bella Italia was one of my favorite places when I lived in the Tri-Cities. The food is all amazing, the atmosphere is great and don't skip the yummy garlic butter or desserts!

Our cross country team enjoyed dinner here the night before our state race. It was a delicious carbo-loading meal! It's VERY difficult to get reservations on that night at most Italian restaurants, but the owners were friendly and helpful and accommodated our group with reservations, so we didn't have to worry about a wait. They gave our team a private... More

Made reservations which were never acknowledged by the staff. Waited patiently in the foyer to be recognized. Finally seated and then waited yet more time for someone to take an order. This whole dinner experience took over 2 1/2 hrs. Appetizer was good (Bruschetta mista), ordered a second one. Seafood Soup was excellent. Spaghetti with clams (vongole) was heavy on... More

Do not visit this restaurant if you are in a hurry to get to a movie or a hockey game. It is European in nature in that the diner is not rushed. That would be rude. You are meant to relax, enjoy and make an evening of it. The food is authentic and wonderful, if a bit spendy. The cantaloupe... More
