The location of this restaurant, on a corner of a village square, is charming. The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. The food had a very nice presentation and was delicious. The lunch menu is very reasonably priced, with a large array...More

Good presentation, staff needs training on silverware and plate replacement and wine pouring. Excellent foi gras but too much maple syrup. Takes away from flavor. All items enjoyed.

Went for a late dinner during busy Apple Fest weekend. Both food and service were excellent. Decent wine list and enough variety on menu for anyone.

Intimate restaurant in heart if Downtown Franklin, PA. Menu offers some surprising and interesting selections not usually associated with a small town in Northwestern PA. Nice presentation. Pleasant surprise.

Just treat yourself and go. If it is on the menu then it is good. Allow yourself to try the sometimes unusual sounding flavor combinations. Your taste buds will do a happy dance all night long.

Bella is always an excellent experience. It's not just about one or another aspect of the foods or drinks, it's about the whole of things, from Ava greeting you upon entering and making every effort to accommodate your needs, to the friendly and efficient waitstaff....More

In town for a funeral and had a private room for a family dinner. Delicious steak and lobster but the highlight was the olive oil-based dipping sauce for the hot bread.

Hands down one of the best restaurant experiences I've ever had- if I could give this place six stars I would! We had dinner here while on a road trip through Northwestern PA, and I can't say enough good about it. The food was wonderful--...More
