We had not been here in years and now kick myself for going to all those chain Italian restaurants just because they were closer. We had Chicken Marsala and Penne Gorganzola. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere is so fun and relaxing. Don't miss...More

Like so many of the reviewers below, we had to wait for a table. Must be a reason.... Nice that they offered free appetizers in the lobby. Nothing special about the place, but nothing wrong with it. I liked the penne arrabiata, added the shrimp....More

We are from out of town and our friend recommended this place. The waiter was good, the food was fresh and filling. Two of us shared a pizza and both had a side salad and it was plenty. Service was slightly slow but very good.

The Bella Norte has a great atmosphere. The food even greater!! We had two appetizers- the bruschetta and a sampler - both the best we have had! The wood fired scallop dish was amazing.

Very good Italian food. More authentic then other Italian chains. Alfredo is great. A thicker sauce that is more authentic the what you get elsewhere. A good selection of wine. Some great seafood meals as well. 4 stars because portions are a little small.
