New to the area and this seems like the best burger in town. Hit the spot with the 1/2 pound charbroiled burger. Waitress was great and attentive. We will visit again soon.

What a wonderful treat in this small town! The Veal Marsala compared to any of the "chef" restaurants we have in Las Vegas. The outdoor seating was perfect for our dog and she was treated like a queen by the staff. Highly recommend the food...More

We have been to Bella's a few times in the last 18 months and have enjoyed each trip. Lovely outside seating with hanging baskets totally takes you to another place. It is well worth the extra five minutes it will take you to locate the...More
