“Formal Italian cuisine, guaranteed good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

We come here when we want less casual and more formal. I tried the special sole with lobster sauce and it was tasty, warm (not hot) and I cleaned the plate. The others had Veal Marsala, made-to-order angel hair pasta with sauce (baked) and Veal Parm ordered crunchy with a side of pasta. So, if you want something special, just ask and I bet they'll make it up on the spot. All plates were cleaned and it was delightful. The bread is too good. The caesar salad was a bit mushy like it had been all mixed up in a bowl for some time but it was good.

The place would be good for parties with the small rooms and small groups and family and twosomes etc. The service is always good and there is a good selection of wines and food on the menu. The price point is a bit higher than the chains but the food, service and ambience make the grade.

We did not have dessert but the plate full of samples looked quite good.

“Food is absolutely fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2010

My husband and I went there on a recommendation - and we have been going there at least once a week ever since. The food is so FRESH, and so DELICIOUS. It is REAL FOOD, not processed garbage you get elsewhere. The sauces - every single one is awesome. White, red, pink - all of them. We have never had a bad meal there. The food is consistently good and fresh. The chef uses quality ingredients and it shows. We prefer this place to any of the chain so-called "Italian" restaurants. The chain restaurants use pre-packaged processed garbage and they just nuke it. If you have any sort of palate you will know immediately that this place uses fresh, quality ingredients. The prices are reasonable, and the service is outstanding. We can't get enough of Bello!
