My husband and I have been there several times now & have tried to order different meals at each visit. We had the ragu last night which was very nice. We both enjoy good portions and have usually brought home some leftovers. They have a grilled salad with gorgonzola cheese that is the absolutely the best way to start your... More

Went here while in Charlottesville visiting family. Wasn't sure what to expect but so glad went went. Was concerned with family dining it eating for two would be too much. Was I wrong. First the atmosphere is charming. Very nice for special occasion dinner or just out with friends. The staff is spot on. They took very good care of... More

Let me start with a positive here - good quality is great! The garlic bread, salads, entrees are very fresh and taste good. However the service is absolutely horrible! I mean the waitress and the manager that were working the night we dined in could care less if we were happy or not with our food. Had to wait over... More

My husband and I were in Charlottesville for business reasons. We asked the Concierge at our hotel to recommend a good Italian Restaurant. It was fifteen minutes away. A scenic drive. We arrived during a very busy dinner time. We wanted to wait for a specific table so our hostess, Shelly recommends we could sit at the bar while waiting... More

Delicious lasagna, good house red wine, popular restaurant. We did not have a reservation and were lucky we arrived as early as we did, because it was full by 7:00 p.m. Good service, nice atmosphere, would be happy to go back the next time we're in Charlottesville. Family style portions - "one" order really does feed 2 people and a... More

Have never had a less than fine dining experience here - plate size is such that we are able to take home a "doggie bag" to enjoy later.

We were two hungry tourists tired from walking the grounds of Monticello and having made make some headway on treading through the UVA campus. Searching for a light meal and a place to talk, we discovered Bellas on West Main with an open table with a window view. The meal was fantastic (although not light) starting with a shared Caesar...

Exceptional food and service. The gorgonzola grilled salad and lasagna was superb. Service by Rachel was exemplary. We would highly recommend this family style Italian restuarant.
