It's not often that couples can agree on a certain restaurants....but we always seem to choose Bella's when we need to make that decision on where to eat. We return again and again to enjoy the great choices and generous portions. Their creative dinner specials never disappoint. Pork tenderloin with baked tri-color gnocchi on a bed of garlicky spinach or... More

an eclectically Italian restaurant serves up an excellent selection of craft beer along with somewhat unique and standard dishes

Highlights: Service slow, waitresses too busy and not familiar with the menu, dirty glass served, no kids activities and an overpriced kids menu with portions that are way too big. No fruit. Read on for the gory details... We decided to try Bella's even though no one in the local area had ever mentioned it to us when asked about... More

The food was outstanding. The service was friendly! The place was very clean. We would come back again when in town. I ordered the fish tacos, my daughter had the quesadilla and my son had the carbonara. The quality was very good all around!

Very fancy food in fancy plates. Expensive and small portions. Cute place but not for college students.

Everyone in Durham knows this place apparently but I did not until my students (at UNH) said let's meet here for end of the term lunch. All the food was tasty but the standout for me were the potato chips that were homemade. They are so much better than the not-hand-cut fries but the students liked the latter so we... More

You would never expect to find a lunch spot this good in a shopping plaza. Bella's does not stand out in any way. Even once you are inside this place looks like a coffee shop with a bar and a big-screen TV. The menu looks ordinary. But the food is out of this world. My Mom could not remember the... More
