I've been to Bella's on a few occasions for lunch or dinner, and it's always great. I love the relaxed atmosphere, great food and friendly service!

Had a wonderful lunch with great service at a reasonable price. What more can you ask for. Had a couple of the chicken sandwiches with sweet potato and regular fries. Ice Tea with free refill. Great flavor and filled you up. I would go back...More

Went for dinner on a Wednesday during the school year. It wasn't overly crowded & we were seated right away. The dining room is small and casual with tables and chairs and there is an outdoor seating area where there were groups with their dogs....More

This is such a great restaurant. Lots of specials and always great food. Last time I had the veggie burger which was huge and delicious and home-made chip. Nice bar and wait staff.
