After reading positive reviews on Yelp, we decided to try Bella's for dinner. Haven't been there since it was the old Pizza Palace with karaoke (and pretty dismal food offerings). Pleasantly surprised at the menu - ambitious offerings but not too kooky. As others report, the Fried Green Tomatoes were fried perfectly although sauce is a bit spicy for my taste; goat cheese a welcome creamy relief. I ordered the Chicken Piccata and it was so-so..waaaaay too many capers and the sauce was more mustardy vs lemon-y. Our kids ordered seafood platter which was apparently cooked to perfection and the tenderloin which was equally good. Desserts were OK - there is a chocolate layer at the bottom of the tiramisu which is strange. But overall, we are thrilled to have another option in north Durham. A good option. A better-than-average option. Service was quick and friendly, too. And prices aren't too bad either. A definite "add to the regular schedule list" kind of place.
