This is the second time I've been here and I was again let down. I realize this is a pretty popular place. ..which amazes me. I've had great authentic Italian food and this is not it. Hard to find good Italian food on the west coast.

Preface: Always choose indie over chains. Pizza has preferential styles, so this may be more your style than ours. Had a Cheese pizza, and veggie version. Pizzas are beautiful out of the box. They put the veggies under the cheese which creates are unique taste I don't necessarily care for. If I liver here I would probably hit this place... More

I've been coming here for over 40 years and it has always been consistently excellent. It's not a chain restaurant, it's family owned. Everything is good from the pizza, to the pastas and lunch specials. There is a bar in the bar with great drink prices. Highly recommend!

We had a family dinner for Mama's birthday here and the staff was super accommodating with storing our cake and having our balloons set up to surprise our guest of honor. The portions are massive and served family style so a "side" of pasta is seriously enough for a meal with perhaps a bit of leftover for lunch the next... More

Staying with friends in Bonita and they ordered from their favorite pizza place in Chula Vista. Pepperoni, sausage and mushroom with extra cheese. Had it delivered and it was hot and on time when it arrived. Friendly driver.

This family run business has been in operation since the 1950's. Everyone loves their pizza. The meals are a bargain. This was our perfect meal: eggplant parmesan ($8.00), small order of spaghetti ($7.00?). Serves 2 super generously. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Waitresses are savvy and helpful. They have "party space" as well.

I and my relatives are regular visitors to La Bella. The service has always been prompt and good, food is great, we have tried most pizza and many pasta choices. Friendly atmosphere, kids love the gallery in the newer addition of La Bella, many games and pool tables. We have celebrated birthdays, graduations, friends who visit are usually taken there,...
