Great pasta, wine and atmosphere. Worth the trip! I definitely recommend the bruschetta as a starter and the chicken picatta!

Love this place for lunch and dinner IF I'm seated outside. Inside tends to be noisy. Both have wonderful Italian options at very affordable prices. Plus, sitting outside is a perfect people watching spot. And, they now take reservations.

Bella Brava has a good menu and the prices are very reasonable for this area. Sit outside or in. The pizza is very good, also love the roasted brussel sprouts and tiramisu. They have a good selection of wine and craft beer. Service is excellent!

a very good restaurant on the water front in downtown. The fish and chips were surprisingly good and a huge portion at that.
