We were only here for a monthly meeting with some friends of a group we belong to, We weren't sure where in the building it would be. The staff at the front reception area were all very helpful. When we got to the room where...the meeting was held there was pizza available for the guests, I am sure it was made to be ready at the beginning of the meeting so it had been sitting out a while, It was still great. If this had been delivered to our table had we been dining there I would have been happy with it. The layout of the restaurant was very appealing, several small dining areas throughout the establishment. We plan on going back for a nice sit down dinner in the future. We did not have a lot of interaction with the wait staff other than the very helpful hostesses at the front desk. I did see a few of the employee's come into the room and pick up dirty dishes and replenish the tea and soft drinks. In and out quickly and quietly while the meeting continued. Overall a very good rating and highly recommended and we plan on returning!More

I have been to this restaurant a LONG time ago and the quality of food is definitely not as good. My waiter was very good and the level of service was great. Now that they have revitalized 3rd Avenue, there are better places to dine.

Everything was very good, food, service, we eat my wife and I in a small patio they have in front of the restaurant, we enjoy the fresh air and the food. Prices are reasonable, until I ask for a tooth pick, and the manager said...sorry we do not have any, ( I did not know he was the manager) and I said, what first class restaurant and no tooth picks, he answered in ironic way yeah no tooth picks, I asked to the person who took my order, if by any chance he could find me a single tooth pick, he did, he went the extra mile, then I asked for the manager, surprise, the guy that said no tooth picks is the manager, he did not made an effort to satisfy a customer, to bad.More

Pro’s *Great spot for families and large parties *foods pretty good *cold and cheap beer *tv’s everywhere for sports *arcade for kids in the restaurant Con’s *due to its popularity, service can take a little while. Servers have large sections to manage lots of people...*Manager was a little dismissive when I asked him to change tv channel back. This was after I requested a specific football game to which the server originally helped. 10 minutes later it was changed to another game even though it had another tv next to it with the same game. I politely requested it get put back and missed 10-15 minutes of my game. Just annoying that he didn’t seem to care even though I was with a large party and spending a few hundred dollars. Still gets a five since this has only happened once in many visits.More

Local resident, second visit for pizza. Have lived it visited 96 countries worldwide and had really good pizza. This was not one of them. Help was nice but place is a dump. Pizza is tasteless.

We have been going to La Bellas for at least 25 years. Our whole family loves the food here. I would have given it a 5 except the service wasn't as good as it should have been.

When I eat pizza or lasagna when I’m home in the San Diego area, I eat at La Bella Pizza Garden in Downtown Chula Vista. The location is on the MTS 929 bus route, is very close to other downtown businesses such as antique stores...if you want to browse after eating. It has outdoor street seating cafe style where you can drink your favorite beverage & watch the sunset, have your lunch or dinner. For the sports fan there’e A sports bar where if you love baseball that’s the place, remember it’s a San Diego Padres baseball, San Diego State, U.C.L.A. & U.S.C. For division one college sports as those are the home teams.More

We had a great meal of pizza, antipasto salad, and fried cheese ravioli. Pretty good beer selection and the waitress was very efficient and attentive. It is a popular restaurant and seemed to also have a busy takeout counter. Our experience would have been more...pleasant if the decor was updated, the vinyl on many chairs and booths was ripped and dark kind of dingy interior.More

Hands down the best pizza! Went to eat about 4:30 pm on a Wednesday so only two other tables in the sports bar had customers and of course, patrons drinking beer at the bar. Server immediately came over with menus, came back to take order...after a bit. We ordered a small pizza and a hamburger with fries. Two thumbs up for both! Menu stated only one refill but that was plenty for us. This place has been around for over 60 years. Don't worry about some negative comments...food and service is great!More
