We tried the Sicilian Pizza and found we could not eat more than 2 pieces each. Looking around at the other diners we saw that almost all had boxes to take home what they could not finish. Everything looked and smelled good and the atmosphere is pleasant. The only reason we did not give it a five is the pizza... More

We attended later in the evening and were ushered in to a dining room laid out like an Italian street scene. My daughter's cheese tortellini was tasty. My wife's chicken picatta was good but not great, My veal marsalla was OK. Bruchetta at the start of the meal was great. Calimari was excellent. Picatta and marsalla came with a side... More

We were visitors to Gettysburg and this restaurant was recommended by a local, so we had high hopes. Unfortunately it was a mediocre experience. There were many empty tables when we arrived at 8:30p on a Friday night. We ordered eggplant parmesan and baked ziti dinners, with ceasar salad. The salad was slow to arrive, and was just ok. The...

My wife and I had, at one time, been regular customers of the "old" La Bella's. About 5-6 years ago, they tore down their ramshackle pizza place and built a new restaurant on what had been their parking lot, moving parking to where the old restaurant had been. We had stopped going, because their prices grew significantly in the new... More

Fantastic meal! The house dressing was a great addition to a tossed salad, and the pasta was well-cooked, with delicious sauce. The other member of my party had pizza, and enjoyed it as well. The service was excellent, as well!!

We stopped here for the first time last Sunday and it was a good visit. They weren't very busy and the service was ok. Nothing special. Pizza was ok but had too much sauce and not enough cheese. Server was nice.

We typically choose new restaurants based on TripAdvisor recommendations, which is why we were headed to the Dobbin House. However, our route was blocked by a re-enactment parade. Not terribly familiar with Gettysburg, we headed south, passing La Bella Italia. It's a seat yourself, table service restaurant. Our party of three ordered the soups of the day: 2 of us... More

The place was very busy when we first arrived so we decided to come back later. When we did we were seated right away, and had a very nice waitress. We had spaghetti and it was so good. The bread was warm and fresh. Will definitely return- good food for the price!

Very busy place and the food is why!!! Pizza was delicious, made on site. MIL had veal Marsala and ate all. Hubs had tortellini special and licked it clean! BIL had stuffed shells and raved about them. So busy that service was not exceptional just average. Lots of choices in beer although we didn't drink (tonight). Very accommodating for the... More
