An excellent choice

The Hawthorne hotel was busy so we thought we would try this restaurant just across the street and we were glad we did. The restaurant was busy with regular customers but they found us a table and gave us a very friendly welcome. The service was excellent and so was the food and wine, sadly I have... read more

It was suggested to me by several people and a lot of locals eat there which is always a good sign. Everything I has was exquisite. Strongly recommend.

This place does not care about customers, unless they're pals of theirs. We went here for Valentines Day, and the restaurant had WAY over-booked. Even though we had a reservation, they had us wait outside in the cold and snow for 45 minutes! There were many other couples waiting alongside us. Many left to go to other restaurants in hopes...

Located across from the grand Hawthorne Hotel, this tiny restaurant serves everything freshly made by the chef/owner. Cuisine is northern and southern Italian. Veal parmigiana was so tender that a knife was unnecessary! Fettuccine with white clam sauce was superb! Tiramisu was deliciously different - served in a bowl. Selection of wines was good. Their Pinot Grigio house wine was... More

Watch for this restaurant to advertise their special wine paring dinners if you want a wonderful night . The menu was wonderful and beautifully paced. The parings were perfect and the food was excellent. Four courses and one wonderful evening.

I'd heard great things about this place and had been dying to try it. I had colleagues visiting from out of town so I chose to take them there. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere was cozy and the service was excellent. The food was great. We got the pumpkin ravioli as an appetizer. It was delicious. Probably the best... More

Enjoyed a night out with some fairly average Italian food although at the price good value. Tables a little too close together and we felt cramped so make sure you check which table you are getting.

My husband and I went to Bella Verona to enjoy a romantic evening out - Italian style. Instead what we experienced was probably one of the worst Italian meals we have ever and encounted at a "fine dining" establishment!! My husband's dish was mediocre, but the Risotto di Fruita was beyond terrible. I felt like I was eating plain white... More
