We used to love Bella Milano but the last few times we've been disappointed. Tonight we decided we're not going back again. Server seemed to think she was a comedian that could joke her way out of messing up. Took forever to get drinks then we had finished our salads before we got bread. She said they were out of...

We’ve been here many, many times and always enjoyed exceptional food and service. But we had a very disappointing experience last night. Almost three hours from arrival to getting our food. Then the food was not good at all. My Pasta 3-way was very dry. No one at our table finished their meal. On top of that the waitress didn’t... More

We are known for great Italian dining here in the St. Louis region. Right across the river from St. Louis is Edwardsvilles' Bella Milano....any and everything you order should satisfy your palette but the house salad, mostacolli and 3 way pasta are tops on my list. Enjoy!

The reviews for this were great so I was happy to go try it.....the venue is very nice. The service was ok...we were sitting down for 10 min before a waitress even greeted. Once we were she was nice. The food was bland and horrible! The bread wasn't warm....which was disappointing in itself. I got the eggplant parmigiana and I... More

Very nice atmosphere with good service. This is a very good local Italian eatery. Their house salad is particularly good. They also offer nice catering service as take home (pan of salad for example).

I went to Bella Milano's for dinner my first night in Edwardsville. I was greeted warmly as I entered and quickly seated. I ordered the stuffed mushrooms, a small Milano salad and the Spaghetti Carbonara. The mushrooms were served piping hot; and covered with marinara sauce and melted cheese. I could have made a meal of these alone! The Milano... More

Really nice Italian place. I had the special which was salmon smothered in bleu cheese. The salmon wasn't the freshest but was good. Service was outstanding. The other dishes were unique and tasty. Overall a great experience. We will return!

Very expensive for what you get. It almost seems like management has lost interest. The wait staff is great. Drinks are expensive and for being an Italian restaurant the food is rather bland. We also had problems with our food being hot enough.

The food is overrated. The ambiance is okay, but also overrated. The prices are high for the quality you get. There is usually a long wait, because the service is somewhat slow.
