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.

We were really disappointed in the food in Lexington in general. Bella Notte was a nice experience. They seated us on time, the service was great, and actually turned the air down because the vent was blowing directly on us.Our server made some suggestions, and I was impressed that they wee not the most expensive things on the menu, and...

We stopped in yesterday from an early dinner, and we definitely got the full experience. The bread with herbs and oil is awesome. We ordered an appetizer sampler and it was delicious, friend Mozzarella, Calamari, and Zucchini. Absolutely fantastic. The dinner we ordered was a family pasta and it was so delicious, way more good than we needed, but all... More

We made a reservation thru opentable and were very glad we did. We walked right and were seated right away. Appeared to be about 15 minute wait or so. Very busy for a Tuesday night. Food was great! The table bread and herb oil was very good. We started with the combination appetizer: fried calamari, fresh mozzarella deep fried, and... More

Had a group lunch. Service ok but cold and impersonal,food was average . Had to ask for a bowl of sauce as several dishes came out without much on it. Salads were small . Don't know what happened usually good place to eat but today was not one of them

Our dinner at Belle Notte was delicious. We had the pappardelle bolognese from the winter menu and chicken piccata. The food was fresh and well presented and our server, Geoffrey, was friendly and attentive.

I can't praise this place enough. It is delicious. Every. Single. Bite. We ordered wood-grilled divers sea scallops over linguine and manicotti. We both had salads and iced tea and finished with a chocolate souffle. The service is impeccable. We eat at Bella Notte every time we visit or pass through and we'll continue to do do so!

The food is delicious - love the bread and Italian dipping sauce. I generally order one of the chicken dishes, which are always excellent. The décor hasn't changed in years, and it never ceases to amaze me how relevant and interesting it is. The downside to Bella Notte are the drinks - you definitely don't get a "good pour" at... More

I was visiting Lexington with some girl friends this weekend and we were looking for a good spot for dinner. Since Bella Notte had such great reviews, we decided to give it a shot! I'm also gluten free and it appeared they had some good options. We arrived just before the dinner rush and were seated right away. Our waitress,... More
