“Bella's has been hit-or-miss lately”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

Bella's was our go-to pizza joint for years, but the quality of food and the service seem to have lapsed in the last year or two. We loved it so much we'd receive Bella's gift cards from family/friends.

The pizza is actually really good, as are the subs if you want a change. The spaghetti that was always good has been served with very very water-y marinara lately.

The hit of the table was always the garlic knots. Until the last few times we've gone, and the knots have been tasteless and much more doughy than normal. They're simply not what they used to be. Once they were virtually inedible, and the staff showed zero interest in our comments to that fact.

With Blue Moon, Zucca, Mellow Mushroom, and New York Exchange all within 10 minutes of Bella's, they need to step up their game.

Also, with a good new Mexican place, a popular Tae-kwon-do spot, and a sushi joint, parking can be impossible on evenings.

“Good pie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

Always delivers quality pizza for lunch or dinner. Sometimes tough to park at night, and I don't totally understand their desire to be a dive bar with loud music after 8pm. Still, when it's a pizza night, we always go here.

“Our favorite neighborhood place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

Great place to pop in and grab a slice. Bella's offers by-the-slice as well as whole pizzas, calzones, subs, and the like. Their cheese pizza is amazing as is their garlic knots. Bella's is in a small strip mall and parking can be tricky - especially on Wednesdays (great Happy Hour specials). We stop in at least twice a week and have never had a bad meal or bad service. We'll never order chain pizzas again!

“Great late-night meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

After a long day on the road to start our honeymoon, we discovered Bella's on the recommended list at our hotel (Fairfield Inns Atlanta - Vinings), and gave it a try. The pizza was delicious, if a little slow to get to the table, but great pizza takes time! The staff was friendly, even jovial, from the moment we walked in the door untl we carried our leftovers out. And the Kenny's Pies... Im told they're World Famous in Smyrna, but they should be World Famous everywhere! Wonderful!
