I been here many times, normally once a year as I don't live on this side of town. The Ambience (with the solo guitar player strumming familiar melodies), Food & Service is always good for taking your date to. However, the prices always seem a bit expensive IMHO - especially for the common Italian dishes. I had the Chef's special... More

In a town not known for its large number of excellent Italian restaurants, this is not one of the best. The service was friendly and courteous, but the food was lackluster. The first feeling of foreboding came when the menu arrived. On the front were listed several appetizers and main dishes, as well as the game (antelope, elk, etc.) that... More

We sat in the bar and Jason took VERY good care of us. The service and food were both amazing. Great place to have a nice conversation with your party and be treated like royalty.

Carlo has quite a talent for preparing the tastiest game dishes. The meat is always perfectly cooked, and the vegetables are delicious. The staff is kind and attentive. The mozzarella tomato salad is a favorite among my friends. Highly recommended!

Let me start by saying that the lasagna was really good. BUT, it was a rather small portion, and it was $20. This place has carpet that looks like it has not been cleaned since 1974. The service was not bad, but not good either. The wine list is extensive, but over the top pricey. Ehhhh. There are so many... More

I have been going to Bella West since I was 3 years old. I am now 33!!! Carlos has been a huge inspiration in my life and NO ONE can top his Hearts of Palm or Veal!!!! He has always had a dress code and the same paintings since I was little. As a child I thought his decorations were... More

i didn't find any issues with rudeness, or feel unappreciated being there as some of these reviews. BUT, there is to me very little to remember about your your meal here. You are sort of taken back when you walk in, old school feel with busy walls of Italian scenes, wine bottles (empty) decorating the place plentifully showing you will... More

First I don't understand the negative reviews here. Perhaps people are expecting Olive Garden or Bravo? If you want an Americanized version of Italian food, you should probably go somewhere else. Also realize that food in Italy varies greatly between different regions in the country, so you shouldn't expect the same type of food just because it is Italian. We... More

I've gone to this restaurant several times. I've never been disappointed. From the outside you wouldn't think its more that just a typical Italian pizzeria/trattoria - looks are deceiving! The menu is a mix of wild game like Ostrich, Buffalo, Venison, and Italian. The solo guitarist is a nice touch for a romantic dinner with your sweetie.
