My wife and I are here last year, and enjoyed it. Tonight we wanted something close to where we were staying, so we went back. We were seated right away. Our waitress was helpful and made suggestions. Then she disappeared. Several tables around us were also held up. She did return, took our order, brought the pretzel and cheese appetizer... More

If you are in the mood for Italian food, Bella's is a superb choice. They have all the traditional Italian dishes including pizza. We had takeout pizza 2 nights in a row because it is so delicious. I highly recommend Bella's.

We were at the laundromat a few doors down, and walked in as it was our only choice. Pleasantly surprised! Ordered a hot pretzel with a cheese beer dip - it was hot, salty, and the dip was super creamy. For lunch we ordered a hand tossed pizza and it was excellent. The sauce was rich, lots of cheese, and... More

We were on kind of a tight time schedule, heading to an event in Banner Elk. Even though the restaurant was crowded we were immediately seated on the patio (lovely weather) and our order was taken within about 5 minutes. Two of us had the lasagne with meat sauce which was a generous portion (to go box required) and the... More

We got a large pizza for take out with peppers, onions and meatballs. There is nothing special about this pizza. The sauce was very scarce and very lacking in flavor. The crust had no character. It was very dry. There were very few peppers and onions and the meatballs were pressed into the crust in large chunks. Very disappointing. Would... More

We ate Eggplant Parmesan, Spaghetti with Meatball, Fettuccine Alfredo, and Mushroom and Chicken Marsala! It was all amazing and perfect price! Service was great and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the weather!

I wanted to tell you that Bellas is a good but not great restaurant. The owners come from Boston, married into a New York gal, produced kiddies and stayed here, to get out of the cold but yet it snows here too... I was not impressed with the raviolis.. they were not hand made it was boxed like 5 of... More

We frequent this restaurant when in the area. It is always crowded so we usually get take out. The white pizza is the best I have had. The lasagna is wonderful. The salads are very good - especially with their house creamy Italian dressing. You will not be disappointed in the food. Just be prepared for tight spaces and lots... More
