A fan of Bella for years, it's been great to see both the usual favorites as well as the refreshing seasonal items they offer. Always a favorite! A local mainstay before 'local' was cool. Here's to many more years to come!

Thanks for making our celebration so special. Great food, service, and atmosphere! The waitress even put the Birthday cake I made in the back until dessert time and brought it out with a candle lit for my daughter. So sweet!

My wife and I tried Bella Notte for a "date night" and while we weren't disappointed in anything at all, it was average Italian food. The service wasn't bad, the food was good, the menu wasn't anything special. The atmosphere was a bit unique but not super comfortable. We would probably return, but we would also look to try something... More

1/12/2017 Calamhud (Calamari) for both of us was delicious for apps. My better half had the Chicken Marsala which she enjoyed. I had the pleasure of the Seafood Linguine which also was good, Service was a little slow

I have always enjoyed this place but my experience this time started off badly at the beginning when we walked in and 3 very young looking females just gazed at us without verbally responding. We had to iniate the conversation. Just so inhospitable that I nearly turned around and left right then and there. I ordered off of the brunch... More

Went for a comfort dinner. My friends Birthday. She had the seafood dish substituting angle hair pasta (substitutes done there as a routine all the time) for the menu suggested pasta. I had the braised veal shank-very tasty. Staff was pleasant and our server was patient and efficient. No after dinner drinks were available! Did not even have Cream DeMent.

This is excellent Italian food. The atmosphere is wonderful and is perfect for a romantic dinner. The pastas are cooked perfectly to al dente stage. The bread and oil with herb fines is addictive. The salads are fresh with delicious dressings. The tiramisu is to die for.

My husband and I went before seeing a comedy show on Saturday night. The place was packed and very loud. Service was average (our drink order came after our entree.) We both ordered pasta dishes from the winter menu and both tasted fabulous, but my husband's pappardelle had not been stored correctly, so parts were climbed together. The taste was... More

I haven't been to Bella Notte in years and I must say it was a pleasurable experience. The ambiance was peaceful, lighting was dim just right, music was soft...perfect place for date night with the hubby without the kiddos. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for great food at an affordable cost in a hassle free environment.

Thank Shauntae H
