Honestly could not recommend this place enough. We got the chicken parm and hummus, both were great. Everyone working there was so nice and welcoming. 10/10 would recommend.

My friends and I enjoyed a local blues show at a small Tavern on the same side of the street, just across from Bella Bella. We decided to check them out since we were hungry. It is a cute establishment and service was exceptional. My friends split an order of mushroom ravioli and ordered stuffed mushrooms. I enjoyed a bowl... More

We were seated within 10 minutes of arrival although the place was very busy. They do not take reservations. Bubble bread cannot be recommended highly enough! We sampled fish of the day, eggplant lasagna, & pasta with sausage-all very good. Soups were delicious. Salad was quite small. Cappucinos served as dessert & were excellent.

Great earl dinner date location. Very eclectic and relaxing atmosphere. The server was very polite and attentive. The bubble bread and the French onion soup are excellent. My wife and I enjoyed the lasagna. For those interested, it has an excellent wine selection.

Very good Italian food in a nice atmosphere. The parking can be a bit tricky for this location but the food is worth the hassle.

The bubble bread is a must have! I have eaten here many times and have never had a bad experience. If your visit is just for apps and wine or for a large dinner with friends, you won't be disappointed. Bella salad is amazing if you are looking for a fresh salad with a lot of fruit.

I've never had anything I didn't like at this restaurant -- except maybe a bit of a wait for a table. Never pass up the bubble bread. Never. And the french onion soup is fantastic! Can't go wrong.

Friendly family style, romantic setting. Delicious food albeit a bit pricey. Portions are reasonable but not huge.
