I love Italian food but was very skeptical about finding good Italian food in Kerrville. Previous encounters at other restaurants were not very impressive. The sauce was overpowering and the pasta rubbery. Bella Sera was recommended to me by a friend so I decided to stop in for lunch. The lunch specials were priced at $6.99 which is a nice price for lunch. I chose the pasta sampler which came with salad or soup. I chose the chicken soup which was a nice homemade chicken vegetable. The pasta dish was good---having a mild tomato sauce which complimented the pasta. My only complaint was that the pasta was thin and lacking--more sauce & cheese than pasta. I still enjoyed the soup, the entrée, and rolls and liked that I paid less than $10 for food and a beverage. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and looks nicer inside than outside. A little curb appeal might attract more people.
