Description: Owners, Luciano Damato and his nephew, Angelo Locantore, welcome you to Casa Bella where the fine cuisine, warm, inviting ambiance and impeccable service effortlessly combine to create a rich and authentic Italian dining experience. Dishes enjoyed for generations in villages throughout Italy inspire our menu. During lunch and dinner hours, pastas and flavorful sauces simmer while meats and vegetables are slowly cooked to perfection. We continue to use the recipes that have been handed down from our mothers, uncles, aunts, brothers and cousins - from one generation to the next. Bottles of wine are uncorked to complement the dishes, crafted and informed by the culture of Italy. Our menu includes modern and original interpretations of handmade pastas, seafood, veal, poultry, steaks and prime beef that marry the freshest ingredients of the season with an inspired culinary approach.

I have been there many time with my coworkers and we are never disappointed. We have booked dinners for 4 people and up to 30 people. We have done the prefixed menu with our large groups and have people order their own for smaller groups. The food is always top notch never any complaints which is hard to achieve with larger groups. The service is always wonderful and the staff is friendly and always around. Will definitely return for lunch and dinner again and again. You wont be disappointed.

Good food. The wait staff took the appetizers off our table before we finished and never came back until they brought dinner. I left a little hungry for the price paid.

This is my third time here and I probably won't go back. First time was good. Second was good. Third time, not so good.

We went to a birthday party at this restaurant two years ago and they did a fantastic job. We've been meaning to go back but we rarely get out these days. We were seated upstairs in the middle of the room and the woman next to us was obnoxiously loud. We asked for music or something but their sound system was not working that night. My husband ordered the Antonio Filet for over $30 and it came out with two miniscule pieces of "filet mignon", ONE, yes ONE potatoe and a few veggies. I ordered the mixed grilled fish and everything was burnt!! I removed the burnt parts and ate the fish which was not terrible. We paid over $160 for these two dishes, a few cocktails and a cold antipasta. Unfortunately we won't be going back.

When we arrived, and the tables were half empty, we were told that we would have to wait until the other 2 members of our party arrived. OK! I understand that. Except , a few moments later, another couple showed up. Same issue but they were seated and we were left standing. Maybe they were regulars. We won't be. We bought drinks at the bar and paid for them there. When our friends showed, we were brought to a table and the meal was pretty good and the portions were generous. We ordered another glass of wine and had a decent meal with good service.. Our waiter asked whether we had paid for our first glass of wine at he bar (and a club soda) and told him that we did. Our bill came and we were charged for the drinks that we paid for at the bar. OK! Honest mistake? We told our server and about 15 minutes later, a new bill arrived. The drinks we paid for at the bar were taken off and now drinks we had not ordered were on the bill. We objected and waited and waited and waited. And finally were given a proper bill. No apology, except from he busboy. I did not care for the whole thing.

Some of my best Italian meals ever have been at Casa Bella....but they were long ago. The food is still good, but nothing memorable. The service has fallen even further, and the wait staff is a pale shadow of what they once were. There are no lack of Italian restaurants in the area, and we recently hit upon some very good ones but wanted to give Casa Bella another chance. Sorry, but average just isn't good enough when the competition is better.
