have walked by this restaurant multiple times and it is always packed so finally gave it a try. pasta dishes, veal all good with large portions, though flavors a bit bland. eclectic decorations but noisy. beet salad was made with canned beets so would not recommend that. price was reasonable for location but not a bargain except when you consider the size of the portions

This place is not inexpensive and both times I have been it has been very crowded. The waiters are fast and all the staff are very attentive. It's a very tight space so if you have bags prepare to get the squeeze.

Three of us agree that everything was delicious and well presented. Even espresso top notch. Will return again soon.

This was 3rd trip to Bella Blu and I love it every time. The service is top-notch and food is amazing. Great wine list too. They even whip up something for our 4yo

Every time we are in NY we always try to pop in to this place for some delicious authentic Italian meal. Not a single disappointment so far.
