“very dissapointed”
Reviewed September 19, 2010

we found a great place that we had been to before, bella espresso, to have a coffee drink. we don't have many, so this was a treat. they both came and the taste of chocolate, and the color were HEAVY...i asked the gal, who had now sat down to eat something, was this the way they normally made their drinks, meaning heavy on the dark chocolate. she said yes, with no other explanation. obviously, she knew that we didn't enjoy them , as we tossed them in the shop...no one even looked up...and they were expensive to boot. sorry bella.

“Big Let Down....”
Reviewed July 29, 2010

Several years ago I used to live in CB and Bella was a great place. The esresso was made with love and flair, the desserts were decorative art, the music was tentalizing, and the atmosphere was inviting.

I've revisited several times since moving away, and after giving the benefit of the doubt numerous times, I've come to the conclusion that Bella has drastically changed and I would no longer ever recommend it to anyone.

The espresso is made to absolutely no standard or consistency. It is worse than starbucks. There is better espresso and a better environment at Sleepy Monk Coffee in Southtown CB.

The Service is lacking. Servers at Bella used to walk around and pick up stuff for people, offer samples, and smile and go the extra mile. Now it feels like you are walking into a gas station, and they just want you out the door.

The value is aweful. They've cut standards, but raised prices. They used to make homemade canolli's, now they have stale FSA cakes that have been sitting sliced in the fridge for over a week. NO STANDARD

The atmosphere is dead. The music is loud and doesn't fit the atmosphere anymore. The artwork is fabulous, but the restaurante itself is lacking in tlc, with cobwebs, and dusty cutains. The place looks like a hasbeen.

It feels like the owner doesn't care anymore. There are far better places to go. Go to Sleepy Monk Coffee. It is waaaaay better, on all levels.

“Great Place”
Reviewed June 4, 2010

We love to go to this fun, funky place. We come every year in November and this is always a place for a great cup of coffee. We hang out and talk or surf the internet. We love the uniqueness of the place.
