The atmosphere and the service here are really good. The wine menu is extensive and their desserts are great, The portions for the food are decent size and the menu has a large variety. The place is a little more expensive and if I was looking for good pasta at a more reasonable price I would reccomend going to St.... More

I've been to Bella Milanos many times for group events or because others suggested it, but don't care for the food. The pasta is mushy and drowned in bland sauces. The portions are huge. Everything I've ordered (meats, salads, etc.) has been disappointing. The restaurant has a nice friendly atmosphere and good service, and always seems to be full and... More

We have been here on dates, for private parties that we've hosted and attended, with our three kids, and just to the bar for a drink. If you haven't tried Bella Milano I find it very sad. They have a wonderful family meal ( which is normally takeout only but in house on Sunday's). This is wonderful! 2 exceptional pastas... More

Service is generally good. The food is not bad but definitely not the same quality one would find on hill. In all fairness it is a little cheaper...

There are three amazing pastas... Tortellini, lasagna, and spaghetti carbonara. You can't go wrong with one of these dishes. Amazing food, great wine list, awesome salads!

Bella, one of three locations, offers outstanding dinners--from pastas to steak to fish options. Be sure to order their house salad, it is amazing. Bella is also great for lunch, offering several options for &10.00 luncheon specials. They have a full bar and Monday is Martini night. Bella also has an OK wine list. I have been there often and...

Nice atmosphere, very good food, and good service. We have eaten there as a single couple, with a few couples, and for medium to large family gatherings.

Took my husband to Bella Milano for his birthday. We had reservations and were warmly greeted and shown immediately to our table. From the moment we walked in, we were treated like family Adam, our waiter was polite and attentive to our needs and request. The food was beyond great. The citrus salmon was awesome! We tried several desserts, and... More

Eating in a packed Italian restaurant is always an enjoyable experience. Nice variety on the menu from apps to entrees and desserts. Pasta dishes large enough to be shared, the Milano salad is tasty. Salads arrived late and entrees arrived early - made for a packed table. Service was good and everybody enjoyed the meal. Bread arrived with just butter... More
