We went there for lunch as Shio's next door was closed and our kitchen was being rebuilt. The service was friendly, we were the only guests. The food was inexpensive and decent. Would not call it true Italian, caters to American-Italian food lovers.

Me and my Husband went to labella last night for our anniversary dinner, The food was great and it was a reasonable price considering you can bring your own wine. The service was great and the place was very clean, I will defiantly be back.
