We found this lovely restaurant on Trip Advisor, and we were thrilled with the recommendation. The decor is beautiful and relaxing. They offer large booths or tables. The food - from the chef's complementary pre-appetizer, the bread, the salads and the entrees were all wonderful. The service was attentive. We would definitely eat here again if we return to the...

Ok place, older lots of character, interesting service. However, this is the northeast and they should do their italian a little better. It was good, but not the best. We were there for a large function. Heads up, if your going to offer large functions, get your staff up to speed. But, maybe it's better for small groups.

We have been a few times for Saturday night date night and the food has always been exceptional. Some issues with service on a couple of occasions but overall we always go back.

I had given Bella Fiore a good review before and I just wanted to add to it. We went this past weekend and had the early bird special. It was a great buy, the service was excellent and the food was very good (we had the veal parm)-. Will definitely go back again.

Although it's probably not going to win any major awards for cuisine, this is our local "go-to" place for low-key celebrations or just treating ourselves to a romantic dinner without breaking the bank. It's generally very quiet, and the service is attentive without hovering. A bit dark, so bring reading glasses if you need them! (I always end up having... More

We had been meaning to try Bella Fiore for quite some time and finally made it there for dinner. The atmosphere is nice, the walls are painted as if you are in Italy, with mood lighting and a soothing waterfall. There were only a couple of tables filled while we were there, so I imagine if the place was packed... More

Bella Fiore's has been doing a good job of serving upscale Italian food for over twenty years. The decor is a little dark and the waterfall can sometimes be a little loud, but the service is very good and the food is consistently better than all of the other so-called Italian Pizza restaurants in town.

The food was very tasty and the service was great. We also found the prices and the location to be very good for a change of pace outside of our lodging.

Reserved the very comfortable private area in back for a small 50th wedding anniversary family dinner. The staff accommodated all our needs perfectly for a very enjoyable evening. The service and food were excellent.

We had two appetizers that were nothing special. The asparagus with lobster and the mussels. The asparagus was just okay and the overall taste was not a "wow" but there was nothing wrong with it. The added lobster garnish made no culinary impression. The mussels were a bit small and some of them were shriveled. The garlic and white wine... More
