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

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
