We love going to this friendly Italian restaurant. The food is excellent and the portions are huge. We've been here every time we come to Anacortes and have never been disappointed. We especially like the fried calamari and the daily seafood specials.

We dined here for the first time with three other couples after a Christmas concert in town. The menu offerings were great and the service was grand. I only wish they would have allowed separate checks for each couple.

We celebrated a birthday here and had a very nice time. The service was very good and the restaurant offers a nice atmosphere and is not overly loud - you can actually carry on a conversation which is a rarity in many restaurants these days....More

I don't know how they did it, but the flavor in the fettuccine alfredo was truly outstanding - deliciously different than any other fettuccine alfredo I've ever had. I ordered it with gluten-free noodles which are very difficult to cook properly, and they were cooked...More

Ciao Bella is one of the more pleasant pit stops we've made on our journey to the San Juan Islands. Located on the main street of Anacortes (just south of the turn off for the island ferries) this little gem isn't much to look at...More

Decent atmosphere, reasonable prices for truly authentic Italian dishes, served by a family with Italian as their primary language. Service was perfect - there when you expect them, not intrusive when you're enjoying the meal.

We failed to make a reservaton, but by going before 6 we were able to get seated right away. White cloth tablecloths and napkins always speaks a step above average to me. There were 4 "specials" and the rest of the menu throw a dart...More
