Had a family dinner here, beautiful place! The service was minimal. Can I get you anything to start? Are you ready to order? Can I get you anything else? Then the check. The pasta dishes were pretty good. My kids ordered caprese salads and they were terrible. There was a mix of heirloom tomatoes that were either mush or not... More

We went there during the Festival of Lights. Although we had reservations, our parties were seated at separate tables. As a vegetarian, I opted for the pizza, which was fair at best. The garden salad was very good. My husband loved his chicken pasta. Service was excellent. I would not return.

We went on Christmas Day and it turned out to be an excellent experience. We sat outside on the patio for an early dinner. We enjoyed people watching and the festive holiday lights. It was very romantic and cozy and we got lucky to have Santa Claus to come to our table to greet us. It was a magical dining... More

Took my girlfriend to have an early dinner. It was very cold and windy. The hostess sat us at a table outside while she was telling us how warm it was next to the propane heater. We waited for a few minutes for a waiter/waitress to arrive. The wind was gusting and it was freezing outside. So finally a waiter... More

Offering a lunch selection of salads, pizzas & pastas, Trattoria is a fine dining experience for roughly $18 a person. The dining areas are all outdoors or heavily windowed & the service is friendly & helpful. The food is in the classic style of Italy, simple & good. These are dishes with 5 or 6 ingredients at most, & they... More

Went to look at the Mission Inn lights. Had dinner at the Bella Trattoria. Friendly staff and good food. Very slow service. I ordered diet Pepsi to drink and never got a refill!! That is one of my pet peeves. We will not go back!!

Located in the beautiful downtown historic Mission Inn neighborhood of Riverside, CA, this restaurant provided a lovely, personal romantic outdoor dining experience on a Fall, Thursday evening. We did not have reservations and had to wait about 20 minutes for our table which provided for a lovely brief walk to explore the neighborhood of quaint shops, art sculptures and walk... More

The Host seated us next to a large party with many young children. Upon commenting about this (and no other customers were seated in this area throughout the entire evening) he said they were almost finished. We were done with our dinner before them. The caprese salad was delicious. The appetizer plates took too long to be removed from the... More
