Came here for lunch. First off, the building and the atmosphere were really great. It felt like you were in a Tuscan farmhouse. There were many items on the menu that sounded really good and wanted to try. I ended up with the fresh fish sandwich (with the fresh catch that day, Sword fish). The sandwich was disappointingly small. As... More

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent lunch at Belle Notte today. I had spaghetti marinara with a salad and she had salmon salad. Both food and service were very good and the bread is to die for. We both give this restaurant a thumbs up.

Bella Notte is a hit or miss. Their dishes are pretty average tasting. I would recommend getting something you know you'll like, don't go out on the edge and try something different.

My favorite dish was a disappointment. The Penne Kalamata had chunks of chicken that had a squeezed out of a bag processed flavor...not hot off the grill. Two olives were tucked in under the penne. My husband had the Penne Fresca and made the same observation. We had not even commented to each other about the chicken until after lunch.... More

The house side salad was... More

While in town for HorseFarm tour my husband and I took our 11 year old granddaughter here for dinner. She got braces 2 days before. Our server was helpful in making suggestions for her. Husband had the salmon, I chose Spaghetti and meatballs with a Caprese plate, and granddaughter had the best fettuccini I have ever had along with the... More

We visited Bella Notte while we were in town to meet up with friends. As we arrived the check in was friendly and fast as we were seated right away. There are finger foods in the hostess waiting area if they happen to be busy and you need to wait for your table....a nice touch. We were seated at a... More

My wife went to college in the area and even though we've lived here for more than 10 years, this was my first time dining. We were greeted and seated quickly (I would recommend the "tree room") in a booth in a quiet corner of the restaurant. Fresh, warm bread was delivered with herbs and olive oil -- be sure... More

We were greeted warmly by the hostess,, and seated quickly. The wait staff was friendly, and very helpful. The bread was wonderful and warm, and dipping it in the the olive oil , kicked it up a notch. The atmosphere was relaxing, with lovely decor.The food came out after a reasonable amount of time. The presentation was good, and the... More
