“Best Pizza in Virginia . . . or Anywhere Stateside”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Bella's would be a dive if it weren't for the signs announcing their place on the "Best of Virginia" list and the constant crowd. It's a simple place where the food has a reputation that doesn't need propped up with novelty and flash. Amazing crust, not too thick or thin, fresh ingredients, and friendly service make this a worthwhile stop. All the locals will tell you it's true: Bella's is not your ordinary small-town pizza joint. So eat it already.

“Sorry it's not in my hometown”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

Stopped here based on a write-up in the AAA Guidebook at the end of a long day of driving, a bloody fall while hiking and checking into a local B&B that didn't seem all that hospitable. Bella's was jumping with a couple of large birthday groups and lots of customers (but no wait for a table by a window). To our surprise, we were served maybe the absolutely BEST pizza we've ever eaten ANYWHERE--big cities included! Fresh ingredients, crunchy crust, and the yummy flavors weren't overpowered with black pepper. What did seem overpowered, however, was the wait staff. Poor kids were blowin' & goin' but they clearly weren't coping; also, a couple of them looked like they'd been dumpster-diving.

Excellent pizza, glass of wine, and a lovely patio with waterfall to enjoy it on. Very happy to find this place open on Sunday evening.

“Food Great... Service not so much”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

As one of the only places open on Sunday, I came here on an overnight visit. The food really is good but I could not get a water or wine refill....had to track someone down to get my check just to pay and leave. There is a real opportunity here for owners/ managers...have more help at these times. If I was looking for a business opportunity I would consider a restaurant in Abingdon open on Sundays with good food and service. Looking around, I saw several tables waiting just to place an order.

“Good pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

We stopped here because it was late and nothing was open in Abingdon, Va. The pizza was really good. They have a small patio in the back which if the weather isn't too hot looks inviting.
We will make it a point to stop here again as the pizza was that memorable. The staff doesn't appear too organized but the waitress was prompt and attentive. The prices are good and the quality of the food was excellent.
