“great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

This was a great experience with a really flood atmosphere that had asmall local band playing. My wife and ii were with another couple and everything that we ordered was very good including wine, entree., and dessert. Highly recommend. Best Italian food I have had in the high country by far. Another thing that was great about it was that they were fairly busy and did not rush us from our table which allowed for great after dinner conversation. We did tip accordingly for our waitresses lost table time of course.

“A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012 via mobile

Who would have known that a Great Italian Restaurant be located in a strip mall with a Food Lion across from it. The food was excellent, my wife had the lasagna and I had the spaghetti and meat balls. The staff friendly and quick. We would definitely come back again.

“Another great pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

My fiancee and I love pizza and had it twice this weekend. we were sent here by the hosts at Banner Haven because we asked about good pizza. We've had pizza from NY to Italy and both of us said this was the best meatball pizza we've ever had. The meatballs were huge and the pizza had almost no grease. If you're in Banner Elk, make sure to try this place.

“Excellent Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

Bella's sits in a plaza across from a Food Lion in the Banner Elk area. We had not given this jewel a try until someone recommended it to us. Wow, what a find. We have now eaten their numerous times, and sad to say I can't give a review on anything but their lasagna. It is just so wonderful, I can't bring myself to order anything else. The restaurant is a little on the small side, so beware on a busy night you might have to wait, but it is worth it. We have always been very happy with the servers.

“Wonderful food and Perfect Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

Very good Italian food, white table cloths, large portions. The staff was very kind, we had a sleeping 18 month old in a booth with us. I plan on eating at Bella's every time we visit Banner Elk area.
