“Dinner at Bella's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

Food was generally excellent and the service was very good, with friendly staff. Pork tenderloins were outstanding, however the steak was lacking in flavor.

“Every bit a delight (and good food and service)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

MAke a reservation for this resto and sit back and enjoy. The pastas are to die for and the wine list is good with a broad range to choose from. Anything pesto was good and then there are the famous garlic fingers (so hard to resist so just have them and enjoy).
The football team had been in before us and yet everything was in tip top shape and the staff were helpful and good, The salads were imaginative and the desserts were amazing.

“Very good and good at adapting to a young diner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

We went for dinner, and the food was very good, the wine excellent, and the waitstaff very pleasant and amenable to accommodating us. However, as we found in most of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, the waitstaff consisted of only one person, and was a little overwhelmed with a party of 6 at once, so things were a little slower than we would have liked. This might also be a New England perspective - Yankees are supposed to be known for talking fast and we might be a little impatient.

“Excellent lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

Visiting the area and spotted this little cafe, checked Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. Very glad we did. I get so tired of eating in chain restaurants when I travel! We had really excellent grilled sandwiches and were very happy with the service and atmosphere!
