Best pizza my family has had in a very long time. Lots of toppings to choose from and they'll make it thin (our preference) or regular crust. Wish they served past 9pm and as others have stated, they're usually packed. We often order takeout and need to allow at least 30 mins on busy nights. Prices are quite reasonable. The few staff members we've come across have seemed rather frazzled and not particularly friendly or hospitable, could use some customer service training. Otherwise, I would have given 5 stars!

Can't say enough about Bella's - except order two salads and share your entrée with someone!!!! There is so much food, I don't know if any one person can finish the entire meal!!!! We visited two different nights during our vacation, and pretty much ordered one of everything on the menu - from eggplant parmesan to chicken marsala to pizza. It was all delicious!

Bella's has great food. The pizza is some of the best I've ever eaten - and we get it for take out most of the time. You can count on Bella's being slammed on all weekends and through the week during ski and tourist seasons. There's a busy bar full of golfers from the ritzy private courses in warm weather. The service can be iffy but only because they're overrun with customers... they seem short-handed at times. It's loud. You'll stand in line a long time for a table if you don't make a reservation. It's not particularly cheap. It IS great food and sort of a fun place once you get seated. Garlic rolls are awesome...

The Chicken Piccata and Stromboli and Pizza are excellent. Love the vibe and friendly service. Great for kids too!

This was the second time we tried to eat there -- a few months ago it was too crowded and we gave up.

The restaurant is in a shopping center, and you have to know where it is to see it.

Food was very good. Like a lot of "family" Italian places, it's pretty simple atmosphere. And maybe not the most easy-going pleasant place I've ever eaten. But the food was great.
