We ordered room service from Bella Roma almost every night while staying at the DoubleTree and were never disappointed. Their dinner menu was amazing, especially the salad, scallops, and steak!

I forgot all about the pandemic in this quaint little restaurant. A small piece of Sicily captured in one room. My waitress Romona was attentive and assisted other waitress's. Everything was brought out in a timely fashion and the food was fantastic. I especially was...fond of the pistachio gelato. It was superb. Thank you to Bella Roma for a lovely evening of fine dining, good service and excellent atmosphere. Truly a beautiful experience during these difficult times.More

My husband and I ate here a couple of nights ago on a visit to Helena. In fact, it was our first dinner out since the pandemic hit. We sat on the patio, which we requested because of covid, even though the dining room is...quite pretty. The food was excellent. We started by sharing an arancini, which was great fun. It’s really something only a restaurant can do, and we enjoyed it. Then we shared the salad with burrata and fennel. Also very good. My husband’s swordfish was perfectly cooked and my fettuccini with clams had the right amount of spice. Desserts were fine. I would love to give this place five stars, but there were some issues. It’s fall, and we expected the patio heaters to work. Not one of them did - apparently they were all out of propane at the same time. Service was terribly slow. We didn’t get our salad for an hour and one half. We finally asked our waiter to bring our desserts in a box and the check when our main arrived. It’s too bad. Our waiter was good and I know he was embarrassed. This can only point to a management problem in the kitchen that needs to be fixed.More

First time visiting and understaffed for sure. 20 minutes after receiving water server finally came back for order. My ceasar salad was extremely wilted as noted in the picture. Main was good though. No chocolate cake available. Social distancing and masks are in play.

The food is excellent. Tenderloin with sauce was fabulous. Even the mussels were fresh and well prepared. Chocolate cake was tasty. Good wine list. Excellent service.

Just passing through town we were lucky to stumble upon Bella Roma as we walked around the historic downtown. We had a light lunch of pasta and salad that was absolutely delicious, enjoying the outdoor patio. It was so good we decided to come back...a few nights later for dinner, even though technically it was a few hours drive off of our planned itinerary. We headed up to Glacier National Park for a few days then back to Bella Roma! We sat in the dining room at the bar and Romana made us some delicious cocktails to get the night started. The owner and executive chef Davide was there and walked us through a four course meal complete with wine parings- everything was amazing. A great couples night out in Helena!More

The food was as good as any I ave ever had in Italy! And that is spending over 6 weeks combined throughout Italy. Best Italian meal I have experienced in US!

We went here for my twin’s birthday dinner. The menu was a bit overwhelming with traditional Italian style foods as well as ordering courses. To be honest no one knew what they ordered. However the surprise was all four of us had amazing meals. Delicious...and flavorful. Everyone ate every last bite! Simply delicious!!!!!More
