A great standby in the area. Count on the food being both plentiful and very good. Worthy of sharing an entree. My favorite is linguine with red clam sauce. It is a meat dish at Bella’s. Lasagna is delicious. Pizza good, also. No reservations.

Bella's is overall pretty decent. Their pizza's are what they are known for. Very yummy, floppy, NY style pizzas. Love them! Has been a bit hit or miss with their other dishes, but mostly hit! I would recommend going here. Get the pizza!

I think restaurants around Banner Elk succeed in spite of themselves. Visitors are on vacation and don't want to cook and choices of dining out are limited. I've eaten at Bellas several times over the years and never had what i woul call a great...More
