“ONE OF THE FINEST DINING EXPERIENCES”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Without a doubt this is an exceptional place to dine. Everything from the food, the bar, the staff, the ownership rates excellent. Dine here if you can,you to will come away with the same attitude. Try the calamari apps, both are great. I always order the veal. A wonderful night out.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

We have been to Bella many times and have never been disappointed. The food is always is outstanding and the service is great. They are always willing to do special requests.This is a family run restaurant. The son is the head chef, the daughter handles bookings and parties and the father is always there to host and chat with customers.

“The best in the area.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We've dined at Bella dozens of times. We've never been disappointed. The service and food is outstanding. Decor is nice, always clean in and out. The owner is usually there and takes pride in what comes out of the kitchen as he should. It is reasonably priced for the quality of the food. I never leave there hungry, usually take some of it home. The dinners are creative and prepared to perfection. My only complaint could be... If you order one of the "daily specials", ask the price before you order, you may be shocked at the cost of the specials. I have no complaints about the food, decor or service. You leave here thinking it is money well spent.

“Wedding dinner was great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

We recently had our wedding reception/dinner here. It was for a small party - everyone here was so welcoming and excited to make sure that our day was perfect.
They didn't care how small the party was, just that we were happy and enjoyed ourselves.
we had the patio area to ourselves for the most part of the afternoon. We stayed longer than we had anticipated and there was a party that had made reservations to be on the patio. They were nice enough to ask if we minded if they came out - I thought that was thoughtful. We shared our wedding cupcakes with them! ;-)
Joe was our server and he was FANTASTIC! Was on top of everything, made sure no one needed or had to wait for anything.
We went back three months later and happen to have Joe again waiting on us. He not only remembered us but our drinks, what we ate - even what my daughter had!

Great place to have a family dinner, reception, party or just a romantic evening.

“Perfect hidden Gem”

My husband and I along with friends went tonight to Bella Restaurant to celebrate both our birthdays. The food was so delicious, the atmosphere was beautiful and we had the most amazing waiter, Diego. He is so attentive, knowledgable and a perfect gentlemen with a smile that will knock you out. You need to go for the great food and atmosphere and if your very lucky you will get to meet Diego!!!!!
