My family and I visited the Jan Thiel store a few times for Gelato. I also grabbed a small pizza from there. The pizza was pretty good, more like a flatbread crust. However, the gelato flavors were excellent. Try the chocolate ice cream, it is...More

This restaurant first exposed me to the coffee/ice cream delight called Affogato and I thought I'd gone to heaven. Since this time, I've selected this Italian drink/desert specialty every time I see it on any menu. Unfortunately the Affogato tried in the Gelati Bella/Santa Barbara...More

If you want to enjoy a sandwich, pizza, coffee, smoothie or a good icecream strongly recommend this Bella Italia location in Santa Barbara resort. The dutch owner -I think is the owner- is moving so fast and tries to satisfy every customer.

Everybody who thinks they serve a good Pizza or a good icecream obviously never has been to Italy, Germany or Belgium. Pizza is a dry, overpriced (well, everything is @Jan Thiel) and heartless-cooked piece of cardboard. Icecream tastes just like sweet chemicals.

We are mainly returning take-out visitors although the spotlessly clean indoor area and terrace would make for a great place to stay and eat. The selection of thin crust pizza's is the main attraction as far as we are concerned with excellent ice cream as...More
