WOW! I have lived in this area for quite some time and don't know how I never came to Bella Costa. My husband and I decided to try it out after hearing a few of our friends rave about it. Well, they were absolutely right to think so highly of it. Everything was spot on from the hostess to our... More

Although in a strip mall, this is a very good Italian restaurant with a cute interior. Food was great, and our server, Jessica, was excellent!

Three of us visited this restaurant for lunch. I had a veal parmigiana sandwich and the other 2 people in my party had shrimp scampi. We ll enjoyed the food very much. The restaurant was quiet with good ambiance and excellent service. The menu is not extensive; it contains 3 sections; lunch options, small plate options and dinner options. Any... More

Bella Costa has an extensive menu, large portions (even their small plates are big) and good prices. If that is what you like, it is your place. It has a nice bar and the service from the waitstaff was very good. The food quality is average. The menu says their pasta is home made, but it tasted like it came... More

We had lunch at Bella Costa and ordered off the lunch menu. The menu is small but you could also order something from the dinner menu as well. We ordered the burger sandwich and the chicken citrus salad. The sandwich is exactly that in a nice Ciabatta roll cooked perfectly - rare. The salad was refreshing with freshly cooked chicken...

Pan seared scallops on roasted golden beets with homemade citrus balsamic glaze was to die for. We haven't had a marsala dish this good since our trip to Italy. And the veal saltimbocca was just as wonderful. Friendly staff and apparently music on Wed through Sat nights...we will definitely return AND bring friends with us. A real winner!

We had not been back here in many years, and were pleasantly surprised. The decor has been updated in the years since we were there; there is a bar area w/tables and a piano bar, but we ate in the other larger dining room. We were seated promptly, and the place filled up quickly on a Friday evening. We split... More

Delicious food, good drinks & the BEST specialty coffee (Bella Costa Coffee) I've ever had! The staff is lovely and very accommodating. Don't miss out on Sunday brunch, you won't be disappointed.

Friends who've traveled to Framingham multiple times recommended this place as "nothing fancy, but the food is good, the portions are large and the staff is friendly" -- and they hit it right on. Three of the five of us ordered "small plates" instead of the regular sized ones and I really couldn't see much of a difference other than... More
