Had an early Saturday night dinner. Our server, Vince, was extremely helpful and gave us good suggestions of what to order. After two delicious appetizers (Calamare fritte and Meatballs Bella) followed by Beet Salad and Minestrone, we ordered Seafood Pescatore (with two mini lobster tails,...shrimp, scallops, etc. and a huge Veal Chop Milanese. As a bonus, we got to take "doggie bags" home for another delicious meal at home. Did I mention that the butter (to go with our big basket of various breads) was shaped like two small alligators?More

Food was average; we had salads and the meatballs and salmon. It was ok, nothing great. We really wanted dessert and after the amazing desserts last night at a Land Remembered in the hotel, we had big expectations. But the dessert tray was lacking so...we went downstairs to the little ice cream shop instead. The bread was the best thing about this meal - it was fantastic.More

To the reviewer of "no free parking", the restaurant validates your parking fee when you go in for dinner. We had a wonderful dinner there early Saturday night before they got crowded. We started with a basket of tasty breads served with pesto.. For dinner,...we enjoyed a large antipasto, roasted beet salad, classic minestrone, Cala Bella Seafood Pescatore (filled with shrimp, large scallops. two lobster tails and noodles in a rich tomato broth) and Cala Bella Lamb Rack with vegetables (4 very large lamb chops). Our server, Gloribel, was very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Wish we could have made it to dessert but there was just too much food. A totally awesome dinner.More

Cala Bella is a dining pleasure. Seating options are diner friendly, so that even when I am alone dining on business trip there is seating for singles. The Minestrone is among the best I have ever eaten. I enjoy the Osso Bucco, fall off the...bone tender and rich with flavor. The Bolognese Sauce is also superb.

Ate here twice on my work trip. First time as a group and they did a great job. Second time, the night before I left. Since I was by myself I ate in the bar area. After I was seated I waited for someone to...approach me to take my order. After a long while the manager came by and took my drink order, then another 20 minutes went by and he returned to see if anyone came to get my dinner order. Sadly no, so he took the order. He did comp my food but I was slightly disappointed as the bar tender just seemed too busy to even acknowledge me sitting there. I returned to this restaurant because the food is delicious, and I would have given 5 stars but I was tired and wanted to eat and leave and it took way longer bec5of the lack of attention to guest sitting at a table alone.More

Over priced and average. Having been to Italy twice, my expectations are high. For the price it was disappointing. Food was average but not worth the price. Service was decent. Best thing about the meal was the wine.

We did not care for the pastas here (over-cooked and with too much watery tomato sauce), but we found several of the starters to be very good: the antipasto tray, the stuffed meatballs and shrimp with salad greens. The minestrone and the cabrese and arugula...with gorgonzola salads are nice. The tournedos are good. Did not care for their marsala sauce on the veal cutlets. Nice desserts in general.More

Small Italian restaurant at Rosen Shingle Creek hotel. Given hotel also a convention center very frequently have large groups dining which means the area is LOUD both in the restaurant and in the bar area. Tables for 2 limited and in poor locations. At our...first visit this was especially the case- sat near large loud group. Waitress offered a couple of options- most as bad as current situation but the offered to set up a table on their balcony. We opted for that and were so pleased, It was like having our own private dining- lovely music, very good food, and waitress was still attentive, though we also tried to be efficient with her time. Calamari was lovely, so was short rib bolognese. Worth saving room for dessert too. Is on the expensive side cost wiseMore
