I have had their Pesto-excellent, Calamari-excellent, Eggplant dishes- excellent, Veal dishes-excellent, fresh fish dishes- excellent. My wife has had the Fettuccine Alfredo-excellent,... More

We've been to this location twice. Each time the food has been wonderful but the service has been horrible. We had the same waiter both times. He spends more time back in the kitchen talking than attending to his tables. We ordered drinks...mine came out right away and my husband's glass of wine took 30 minutes...after asking the other wait... More

The food was not very good considering the price. My ravioli came out still frozen inside and the sauce was ok but I was definitely not impressed.

Large groups seem to bring out the worst in wait staff. Must be that guaranteed tip, but that's no excuse for surliness or eye-rolling when one's guests request something to accomodate their dietary restrictions. The penne was ordinary, but the chicken marsala was very good and the stuffed eggplant was sublime, the kind of dish that one doesn't soon forget.

Had dinner here with family group of 8. Services was very good and attentive. The menu has great selection of traditional Italian dishes which is what we wanted. I had soup of the day and the lasagna and liked both. Desserts offered were a bit limited but the tiramisu was delicious. The ambiance is homey and family oriented. Good spot... More

We have eaten La Bella the past three yes we have visited Virginia Beach and it has never disappointed! It is our "gold standard" of Italian, with Italian being our favorite cuisine. On this most recent trip, we ordered take out which was every bit as good as eating in. I had the spinach lasagna that was packed with spinach... More

Visited early on a Friday evening. Two pizzas, a bottle of the cheapest red on their list, and $65 + tip later, we left. Pizzas came to the table s l o w l y. Believe me, brick oven pizza takes only a couple of minutes to cook; presumably the dough Is already made, the sauce is ready and the... More

My wife and I ducked into la Bella Italia for a late lunch. We were greeted with a smile and enjoyed a delicious meal served by a very courteous young man (Ian.) Recommended for lunch or dinner. Perhaps the best "real" Italian restaurant at the beach.

Our group of 5 visited on a Thursday for lunch. One couple in our group had dinner there before and recommended this for our lunch. When you enter, you are in a deli/bakery part of the restaurant and have to pass through to the dining area. The decore is nice and it's quite spacious. Our waitress did a fantastic job... More
