“Good Food, Poor Service”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

I have dinner here about once per month. The food is very good, especially the Linguine with Red Clam Sauce and their Lasagna. The atmosphere is casual and the restaurant seems to have a good tourist as well as local crowd. My only complaint is that the wait staff is insufficient for the traffic that the restaurant gets. On my last visit, I had to wait 30 minutes for my check...after requesting it. I felt sorry for the patrons waiting at the door to be seated. They had an unnecessarily long wait.

“Neighborhood italian restaurant”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Very casual italian restaurant. Food is good quality and service is good. Nothing fancy here but a warm environment, great for family or friends. Pizzas and pasta are all well done. Price is commensurate with this type of restaurant.

“Best pizza on HHI”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

A little hard to find but Bella Italia has the best pizza on the island. It is great for a family outing. Pasta dishes are also very good and will not break your budget.
