Had a great time with friends at this friendly, cozy place. The staff treated us like family and the food and service were all outstanding. The setting is unassuming,but don't let that fool you--definitely a place to visit!

It is so sad to see people attempt to stay the course when the world has moved onward. At one time this restaurant had an acceptable mien: the food was adequate and inexpensive, there was some half-way decent wine available and the neighborhood enjoyed Italian...More

For those of you fortunate enough to have travelled to Italy, La Bella Cucina congers up memories of walking the streets of Rome, Florence, Venice and Positano, where wafting scents fill the air and draw you in to quaint restaurants that line the ancient streets....More

Very plain and unpolished appearance, but great food. I loved the chicken Gorgonzola and my wife raved about the chicken Marsala. The staff was very attentive and responsive. I can't say enough good things about them.

My first lunch here and I was impressed. I ordered a good-old meatball sandwich and it was delicious. My wife ordered calamari salad and it was wonderful, lightly cooked and gently seasoned. A small place, with ten or so tables and open counter for take-out,...More

Went for lunch and had the sausage and pepper sandwich. Went back and bought 6 more sausages to have for dinner the next day. Wine pours were generous. Meatballs were good too. Would go back again if I ever come back to the Valley.

I have tried many of the entrees on the menu. Their food is amazing. So fresh and tasty. When we had the spaghetti and meatballs I thought my little Mother sold them her recipe for meatballs. Wonderful food.
