Great atmosphere, really good food and a very friendly staff. The lunch specials are priced right and the portions are large for what your paying. Dined on the outside patio and had great service from Gino. Have been going there for 5 years and make it a stop every time where in New York. I recommend Casa Bella. It's worth... More

We ate here because the restaurant next door didn't do pizza. They brought out bread and water as soon as we sat down. We had a pizza and salad to share which were quite nice. The ricotta cheesecake was lovely. The service was ok.

Service at Casa Bella's was horrible. No refill on the drinks and we had to ask for the check in order to get it even when our waiter walked by our table several times and seen our glasses empty and our plates done. Was good food, but the service was horrible. For a small cup of soda it was $3... More

Casa Bella is not worthy of the one star rating I gave it (I'm feeling generous). The pasta I ate there was very undercooked (a few minutes shy of al dente), and the Bolognese sauce was tasteless. The service was somewhere between neglectful and absent. When the check (finally!) came for our party of three, the waiter included a generous... More

I have eaten at many different Italian restaurants, from Little Italy in New York and Boston to bona fide Italian cuisine in various regions of Italy. Casa Bella Restaurant is one of the best Italian restaurants I have been to, and their lasagna ranks among the top contenders of this classic Italian dish that is my favorite pasta preparation. I...

We were walking in Little Italy and saw the sign outside for the express lunch, $11.50 for 2 courses, with a few things to choose from. We were seated outside in the hustle and bustle but a very nice table. I ordered the rigatoni with tomato and basil and a salad to start. My husband got the minestrone and a... More

So glad we chose this one!! There must be 50 to choose from in Little Italy. Portions were large and the service great. I know you probably want be so lucky to have this couple sitting by you, while you dine, but they were very much New Yorkers, loved their accent!!

We tend to favor Casa Bella and were very happy to arrive and be promptly seated outdoors, right on the street side. The hustle and bustle of tourists adds to the wonderful food. A very cold Grey Goose Vodka Bloody Mary joined by a cold antipasto then Caesar Salad for two or more. I enjoyed the Carpaccio Entree which is... More

I never write reviews to restaurants but me and my family of 3 young girls had such a terrible experience here I had to let people know. My 6 year old daughter leaned on the table after we had dessert and knocked a cheap small white vase and a glass on the sidewalk and broke them. Myself and my husband... More
