Went for lunch with friends. The service was pretty quick although they weren't to busy the day we went... My salad was good, loved the balsamic vinaigrette dressing, as well as the bread they brought us with olive oil. I had the ravioli. It was a adequate portion, although not very hot when I received it and the sauce could... More

The food and service are always excellent and consistent. The fresh bread loaves are addictive, you just want to keep eating more.

My husband and I have been coming to Bella Notte since in opened in the mid-1990s. It has always been a favorite. Whether its salad, soups, pasta, pizza or even a burger, you can't go wrong. The scallops are the best I've ever had! The salmon salad is yummy, healthy and oh-so-filling. Last, but not least, the bread and herbs/olive... More

The food is so good here! I can't wait to return. Service is also perfect! We ate lunch and had soup salads and bread with iced tea! The tomato basil chicken soup was the best I've ever eaten. Tuscan bread with dipping sauce was amazing. Salads were crisp and fresh. We will definitely go back the next visit!

T'was good to see nothing important had changed. I hadn't visited here in about a year for financial reasons. Food was as good as always. Given the choice, it is here or Joe Bologna's for the best Italian in town.

We were a family of eight eating a late lunch on Sunday. They had our table ready when we arrived. I ordered the large salad since they are listed with 2 sizes available. It was huge! It was beautifully arranged on the platter. It was evidently meant to serve a family. I appreciated the large portion. Everyone seemed to enjoy... More

While in Lexington, we looked for an Italian restaurant and found bella note not far from where we stayed, so we tried it. We love Italian and this place was very good! The atmosphere was a little upscale, but when we were seated, we noticed everyone was in casual attire. The prices were not too high, but certainly not modest.... More

I love the atmosphere here - with the pergola and the lights and even though you are right on Nicholasville Road, it doesn't feel like it. The food is very nice, everyone enjoys the bread with the dipping oil and spices. The pasta is tasty, I have had the fish as well here. This is so much more authentic than... More
