“Family social”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

This is not the La Bella Pizza Garden restaurant, although they’re operated by the same family. The La Bella Pizza Café and Games is a great place to go for family, group and social entertainment. There are about five pool tables, a couple of dart boards, and an arcade center. There’s also a sports bar area with a couple of televisions. The menu is Italian, with all the traditional foods like pasta, spaghetti, pizza, etc. I ordered a side pasta dish of fettuccini Alf redo with chicken and a side salad. The pasta dishes come as sides or full. Several of us commented on the size of our side of pasta dishes. The side dishes for our pasta were bigger than we expected and made us wonder just how big the full size dishes would be. The food was very good. The pizza was nice and cheesy and both the spaghetti and penne rigate had plenty of marinara sauce on them. The service was prompt and the waitress came by several times to refill our water and ginger-ale pitchers. The atmosphere was friendly. Our group broke up into several groups with the kids hanging out at the arcade, and the rest of us divided between the pool tables and dining tables. The restrooms were larger than I expected as well as clean. As for parking, there’s 2 hour parking on the street, along with parking in the shopping center in front and at the back of the building.

“Fab Cheesy Pizzas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

If you like pizza, on the real authentic italian style side, this is the place to go. The pizza here is the best in town and the most reasonably priced for what you get.

“Best Pizza in the South Bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

La Bella has been in Chula Vista since the mid 1950s. I've been eating their pizzas since the early 60s. The same family still runs the place. The pizza is very good, with generous cheese and toppings for a great price. Unfortunately, the favor does not get old after the third or fourth piece. So, if you want to limit your intake to just a couple slices, put the rest in the fridge and chain the door!
