The Margarita Flat Bread was delicious. We also had a great pizza. Nice atmosphere, can't wait to go back and try something different.

“Great pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

The night we were there the place was packed, but we were lucky enough to get seats at the bar. Call it crazy, but my husband loved the complimentary olives they had on the bar and would go back for those! We ordered pizza for its ease to eat and were glad we did. Very much like the pizza I had it Italy... thin crust that was both crispy but still had some chew.
The house red was good and the beer selection has something for everyone. We'll go back and try the rest of the menu soon.

“Italian Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

Bella Monica is a small scale Italian restaurant serving mouth-watering gourmet Italian dishes in Raleigh. It's small scale adds an ambience and closeness to a friendly, enthusiastic and attentive serving and hostess staff. Where else can you find nightly specials presented to you on a large ravioli noodle! I was with a large 20+ group of diners that tested the majority of the dinner menu, serving pastas, salads, flatbreads, Neapolitan pizzas, antipasti, contorni, pesci and distinctive wines - all to delight an inquisitive palate. The Bella Bean soup is savory and melts in your mouth and the Chopped Salad is a must have. This is a favorite restaurant and one not to missed in Raleigh.

“So good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

One of our favorite restaurant in Raleigh. Portions are on the larger size, definitely shareable. Lasagna is fantastic; as are some of the specials, if you can catch them, highly recommend - squash ravioli and roasted red pepper lasagna.

“Lovely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

This is obviously a very popular place and I would recommend reservations. It feels like food your italian grandmother would cook you but also has a refined feel (ie pumpkin ravioli and lobster stuffed shells). I felt a little nickel and dimed about upcharges but overall it was delicious.
