We recently moved here and on moving day ordered pizza from the closest place to us. I did not expect such good pizza from a mom and pop in small town FL! Since then we order from them regularly - everything is good, but their...Chicken Picatta is my favorite.More

1st visit. Carry out. Looking for a new pizza house to put in our rotation. Think we found one! We enjoyed Bella's cheese pizza. (Easy for comparison) Think fresh basil pieces tossed on pizza. We happen to like basil. Friendly staff. Easy parking on side...of gas station. Will be back.More

This is a VERY small restaurant (about 5 or 6 tables) but has the BEST food ever. I probably wouldn't have stopped in had a group of friends not have taken me. You may miss it as you're driving by because it sits right next...to a convenience store and gas station. But PLEASE PLEASE visit here. You WON'T be disappointed, EVER!More

Order food from location wings were either refried or old. Called location back to let them know of the quality and they didn't care. I guess I should have order New York Pizza Baby instead. I guess since its family owned they are able to...treat their customers crappy. There is no reason for chicken to be black on the inside near the bone unless it is old.More

Loved this little place. We found while driving to a business meeting. We had the chicken Parmesan and meetballs sandwiches. They were fresh hot and delish. The little young girl in the front needs to be a bit warmer but the guys in the back...were super nice and friendly. Thanks again guys for a quick yummy lunchMore

Don't judge a restaurant by it's surroundings. The food here is superb! Bella's is attached to the same building as a convenience store/Citgo gas station on Edgewater Dr. in Lockhart in a run-down looking area. Once inside, the restaurant is small inside but clean with...booths on the right and tables and pull out chairs on the left. Not much in the way of ambiance and decorations, but I went there to eat and not to hang out. I took a chance and stopped in for a spaghetti and meatball lunch special last Saturday and it was very good. Since they did that so well, I decided to eat there again and try their shrimp scampi dinner Tuesday night. It was absolutely delicious and came with a salad and baked bread. This is the first Italian restaurant I've been to that actually knows how to cook pasta right- fully cooked yet still a bit firm- just the way I like it. The food here is cooked fresh to order. The shrimp were excellent and in a wonderful flavored garlic butter sauce. I had enough left on the bottom of the plate after I ate the shrimp and pasta to dip my baked bread in for a perfect finish. I didn't expect to find this gem in the middle of Lockhart. Looking forward to trying one of their pizzas next. Great food here.More

Pizza was so thin, and had about 6 tiny pieces of mushrooms and about 10 pepperoni on a large.. chicken wings we so over cooked must have been what took them so long, food was cold by the time we received it..salad was good...waste of...money.More

Our family was looking for a pizza place to meet for lunch. Found this on the internet. It is located next to a gas station so we did not expect much. Were we surprised. Delicious pizza and salad. Great service. They bent over backwards to...accomodate us. Glad we went and we will be back when we are in town.More

while on vacation from NC, visited my old friend Paolo who also owns BELLA PIZZERIA. To tell all the truth, the ambiance is quite dreadful, but once inside and seated, a quick glance reassures you are in friendly waters. People are smiling and the owners...wave from the kitchen. A server/hostess was multitasking, giggling phone, taking orders and talking to people.( she knew all by names) I was chatting with my brother and my nephew when the pizza came. It was a very good looking pizza. the golden color of the crust, the smell of the pepperoni and sausage made our mouth start watering and for the next 15/20 minutes there was no talking at the table. the pizza was excellent. the fresh toppings complemented the buttery crust and stayed quite crunchy even when got a little cold. Very well done. One more reason to come to Orlando and to look forward too.More

We found this restaurant by the high reviews it's received, but didn't expect it to be located attached to a run-down convenience store. We took a chance and ate there anyway, and are we glad we did! This has become our favorite locally-owned and operated...restaurant. We've met the owners who are from Italy, and their food quality is superb. We've had their baked-ziti that serves enough to feed a small family. Their pizza is delicious as well. They don't serve wine or beer, but they'll let you bring your own bottle with no corkage fee. They also provide delivery service, which comes in handy on rainy days.More

You would miss Bella's if you weren't looking for it! This tiny gem has about eight tables, and wonderful food. Fresh ingredients, a beautiful presentation, and a friendly courteous staff.

Some friends invited us to have lunch here with them. When we pulled up into the parking lot, another person and I said, "this is so ghetto. A restaurant inside a convenience store?!" But it WASN'T! It's right next door. The location can be deceiving....Once we entered I felt a lot better. It's a very small eating place but the food has the taste of an upscale restaurant. SERIOUSLY! We immediately stopped complaining. The restroom was extremely clean and I even looked over the counters to see if the floors in the kitchen were clean, and they were. They give you a lot for your money. All I can say isI could not wait til they opened back up on Monday so I could go back. And I'm going back tomorrow too. You WON'T be disappointed!!! Customer service is excellent too.More

We stopped in here on a whim and felt like we took our chances with "the place next to a gas station" but it truly is a hidden gem. Clean, neat, efficient and amazing food. Lunch specials were affordable and tasty, large portions. Try the...house special Stromboli - lots of cheese and flavor. We liked it so much, we went back again for homemade pizza. Flavor, flavor, flavor! The staff inside was very proud of their food and they should be - it's fantastic. Stop in for a bite, it's worth it! Tip: watch where you park and how you back up. The gas pumps are close by and people driving in to get gas seem to come in a little fast. Look, look, look again.More
