Bella Costa is a long time favorite for anyone looking for good food from an independent local restaurant. The piano player adds a nice touch to the delicious food.

Unlikely strip mall location for delicious Italian food. The calamari appetizer was delicious. My homemade gnocchi was fabulous. Others had the chef's special chicken with homemade pasta. It was lovely as well. All and all, glad we stumbled in.
