“Tops in a very flat valley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Dining out in the small towns of California's Central Valley can be an exercise in adequacy. But Bella Notte in Tulare is several cuts above the norm. The setting -- all dark wood panels and leather booths -- suggests a lounge in Chicago and indeed it would not have come as a surprise to find Frank Sinatra in the place a few years ago. It's that good. The chef makes his own pasta and he knows just how to prepare it and the vegetables al dente. He's also a dab hand with the meat and fish. And they bring the excellent olive oil in from Lodi. It's not just the best restaurant for fifty miles in any direction; Bella Notte would be a great place to eat anywhere.

My husband and I ate here with our two young children. The food was wonderful and the service was excellent. We will definitely return to this restaurant.

“Incredible dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Food was amazing, service was even better. My girlfriend and I usually get overlooked (presumably because of our age) at nicer restaurants. We were helped quickly and checked up on frequently. The food was incredible. The fact that this place didn't have a line out the door when we arrived is unbelievable to me.

I eat out in and around Tulare 3-4 nights a week, this is my new favorite restaurant in the area
