“Don't Let the Outside Fool You”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

My wife and I stopped here for lunch while waiting for laundry. The lunch menu had more selections than most restaurants have. The lunch specials were very reasonable, more in line with fast food. The meal came with a salad, bread and the requisite pasta and sauce. The salad was fresh with a very good dressing, served on the side as requested. The chicken parm was pounded thin, lightly battered and cooked to perfection. The pasta was average, the sauce was great. The service was attentive without being obtrusive.
While the interior of the restaurant was not particularly inviting, the location is not the most inviting, the food kept your attention on it, and not the surroundings. While we were eating, we did observe a steady stream of take-out customers who obviously know the value and quality of the food.

“Always a great place to eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

We often eat at La Bella Roma because it is so consistent in very delicious meals, very friendly staff (even the head cook thanks you as you leave), very inexpensive, glass of house wine was just $3.50, soda drinks are refillable at no charge, always clean, air temperature pleasant and rather quiet dining. Plenty of parking right in front, easy to enter and exit by car. When you order an entree, you are served two warm bread buns with whipped garlic butter. Each bun is large enough for two people. We've tried many of the meals and without fail, each one is done perfectly and in a large serving. We almost always take half of our meals home. Their pizzas, especially the loaded house special, is unbeatable. And yes, you get the bread buns as well. About the only thing we notice is that some of the ceiling fans wobble and have a few burned out lights. They offer carryout meals as well. Don't let the mini-mall location and small roomsize fool you. This place is the best for great dining.
