My husband & I enjoy Bella Notte periodically for dinner. The salads are always so fresh and I have to mention the salmon as being some of the best around. My husband loves the lasagna! We know it will always be delicious.

Everything here is amazing - the place, the food and the service. We liked it so much that we came back in the same week, before we live town. P.s - the desserts are delicious.
