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.

Absolutely wonderful food and service. We had to wait about 30 minutes but that's expected on a Saturday evening. Great atmosphere and large portions. Enjoyed the flavored sangrias.

We have not been here for several months so decided to try on Friday night and arrived around 5:45. Sat on patio next to water fountain which had a nice gurgling sound. Service was very good except for couple nits. Salads are always good and we had the house and Caesar salads. Caesar even came with anchovies. They brought warm... More

Following a gathering for a family memorial we enjoyed a wonderful lunch in a private room at Bella Milano. The staff was outstanding and served our large group with friendly and efficient service. The lunch selection was varied and everyone enjoyed their salmon, chicken, eggplant or pasta along with a crisp Italian style salad. Fresh fried ravioli with tasty marinara... More

Love when I walk into a restaurant and smell delicious aromas from the kitchen. I had the tortellini which was delicious. My girlfriends had lasagna and pasta pesce. We were all very happy with our choices. We were at a seminar in St. Louis and just chatting with someone who suggested stopping here on our way home. Great choice!

Thank MicheleIllinois
