Since we were staying close by, we ate at this location several times during our time in Southport. The food is wonderfully prepared, and the menu is varied. You can carry out, eat casually, or have a full dining experience at the same location. Our servers were all professional and very friendly---making it a pleasure to be there.

Very good entrees with many offered as "Cravings" or Tapas. Under $10 for more food than one should eat. LOL. I am filled when I leave. I eat here often and never disappointed.

Not sure what was our favorite... the entree, the tiramisu, or Cassidy our waitress. To start with our food was very good. I had the special ravioli and my daughter had the spaghetti. I do have to also say that it was the best tiramisu I've ever had but our favorite was Cassidy our waitress. She was attentive and very... More

Had pasta carbonara. Maybe it would have been better in house, but I ordered to go. The flavor was great, the pancetta was even better, but the sauce was like soup.

Thank LadyCritic
BellaCucinaNC, Manager at Bella Cucina, responded to this review

I'm very sorry but you are indeed correct. Carbonara is best when consumed immediately after serving so in order to prevent it from firming up on takeout orders we're required to add extra cream. In the past we would try to warn our guests - even giving instructions on how to reheat and add cream - but that typically dissuaded... More

My friend who met us assured us the evening vibe was pleasant, but the lunchtime atmosphere was cold and more like fast food (except it was slow) than a sit-down restaurant. We had to line up to place our orders, then sat down and waited and waited and waited... no silverware (plastic), no dishes (takeout containers), and water or drinks... More

BellaCucinaNC, General Manager at Bella Cucina, responded to this review

I’m sorry you had a bad experience. We didn’t properly explain our unique arrangement. I’m not sure what happened in your particular instance but guests are served meals with silverware and china. Perhaps we were somehow under the impression that you were taking the food to go. During lunch the drinks are self-serve and slices are served on paper plates.... More

My husband and our daughters went out for Bella Cucina pizza while they were on spring break. They were accommodated children and adults and the pizza was great. The toppings were fresh and the pizza didn't fall apart like some other places.

Three of us had a delightful dinner here. Our waitress Miranda was so friendly and helpful. I had the veal parmigiana which was very good. We also had the eggplant parmigiana and tortellini bolognese. Everything was so good. We were so full we did not have dessert. Next time I hope we get dessert. So glad we decided to visit... More

We went here to celebrate my birthday. This was probably my third time eating here. This night I had the Sea Bass with lemon risotto and asparagus. The fish was fresh, moist and delicious but a small portion and over priced. The asparagus cooked to perfection. But the real surprise was the risotto. It was delicious. Our server was extremely...
