My husband and I have been going to Bella's for over 2 years. We have had almost every chicken dish, the shrimp scampi, the mixed seafood dish, and have never been disappointed. The portions are huge and we always take home enough leftovers for Monday night dinner at home. We have eaten at several Italian restaurants in the Lehigh valley and we are certain that the prices are comparable to any other Italian restaurant in the area. The atmosphere is cozy and the extremely friendly staff add to the Bella experience. We have taken several family members and friends there and all of them have gone back....either on their own or with us. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant, the owner, his staff and his love for cooking. It's great to have such a passionate chef so close to home. Don't take my word for it...experience it for yourself.

My husband thought he was going out for pizza - He could not have been more pleasantly surprised and impressed - We had the Seafood a la Erica and the Eggplant Italiano. One word describes our experience there - "SUPERB"! From the greeting, the ambiance, the service and of course the food, EVERYTHING was above and beyond excellent. We shared a cup of their creamy Italian soup - oh my - that first taste was wonderful and definitely a sign of the rest of our meal. We asked if the seafood was fresh and Paige assured us that it was - however - once you tasted the seafood, you KNEW it was fresh! Thank you for a wonderful afternoon. We will have our family with us next time!!!

Nicely laid out, comfortable restaurant with beautifully done frescoes. Food and service are good but not always consistent. We had a few of the same meals that had different amounts of fish with each visit. They were still working out a few glitches at that time. As we live close by, we still go back once in a while to see if things improved. Hoping for good, consistent meals so we can call it our "go to" Italian restaurant in the neighborhood.

Service was friendly and attentive. Food however is well below average. Ordered pork chop special. Got 2 more than well done, thin pork chops, served atop a salad, swimming in some sort of balsamic dressing, with a mess of mixed vegetables (that looked canned) atop that completely hid the pork chops from view. The dish was garnished with 4 unripe tomato wedges (really?). Not at all sure where this special was devised, but for 25 dollars, the drawing board needs to be quickly revisited. Chicken marsala was pizza shop quality at best-swimming in sauce, and way over salted. Again, servers were very friendly, but based on food quality and presentation, will not return.

Was impressed with the restaurant upon arrival...nicely done. Service was friendly and efficient. Enjoyed the ability to BYOB. Unfortunately, the 3 meals I had there left a great deal to be desired. Gnocchi was incredibly salty which just ruined the dish. Another Gnocchi/veggie twist was almost inedible...couldn't finish it and didn't want to take it home. Wife's entrees were equally disatisfying and we've since passed on dining there in favor of a few other places in the Bethlehem area. Try Sals or The Vineyard.
