We dropped in to this restaurant, simply because we used to eat here at Bella Mia on a regular basis years ago, Revisiting the area, it was quite spontaneous, but a good decision was to see how this restaurant was doing. The décor remains typical...More

We'd heard that Bella Mia had changed hands and were leery of going back. No need to worry! Same delicious food; huge portions to take home. Garlic knots unchanged. Service was very good. Whew! That's a relief!

The name is a tad misleading because Bella Mia is far more than pizza. Yes the pizza is really good but we generally order full dinners and enjoy every bite. My husband loves their giant Stromboli - both there and the next day for lunch....More

Tasty pizza and decent prices. A large pizza with three toppings was about $20. One other person and I had two slices each, felt full, and took the remaining four slices home. They also provide you with yummy garlic knots.
