“Small”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

I have been here a few times. The bar has trivia nights on Mondays, which is not well-attended but still amusing to go to. The restaurant itself is never very full, even on weekend evenings. The quality/price ratio is a little off; I've had much better Italian. The ambiance is nice and the service is typically good. They have different flatbreads every week, but they are a little obsessed with using bleu cheese.

“Good restaurant in St Albans”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Ate dinner here while staying on the Lake Champlain islands (Alberg). With tip, no alcohol, the tab was $55.
Good food, contemporary setting, good service. Located in downtown Alberg.

“High class Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Chow! Bella has been recently under new management and has expanded their menu as well as their entertainment offerings. The quality of the food is excellent - expect to pay for what you get.

“Nice pub food, Nice music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

Stopped by Chow! Bella on their open mic night and enjoyed some fine pub food. Service was very pleasant, though the food itself was slow for what we ordered. Portion sizes on the wings and onion rings were big. Food was very good, as was the price. Regular menu higher priced and food a bit more frufru, though not so much since the ownership change. Great music venue in the back.

“good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

Very good food and service. I was taken aback when I saw on the bill a 20% tip was added by the house AND they left a line for "additional tip". Wow!
