Staff is always welcoming and professional and the food really good whether it's chicken, veal or shellfish and pasta. We dine here often and are never disappointed.

Great local place- can be a little noisy. Great bar area. Good wine - I also recommend Short Stack for breakfast - just down the block - same owners I'm told

Generally eat at Bella's on the weekend. Food portions are more than generous. Reasonably priced. While the atmosphere is fun, it can be difficult to hear others in your party. The acoustic's amplify the noise.

My wife and I love this restaurant. Food is always exceptional and they have 1/2 price wine on Thursday. Service has always been good, but we tend to sit at the bar these days with our favorite bartender Richard.

Service was excellent. Food and wine were even better! I love that they have a create your own pasta option with so many choices so you can get exactly what you want and always have more options for your next visit. We will be back soon--especially to try some desserts and the cheese board!

A local gem and a must-try if you're in the area. Make-your-own pasta entree allows you to personalize your dish. Skip the steaks, salads are good. Portions are big so be prepared to take left-overs home. Their martinis are worth the price (they $5 specials on some Fridays but it's not indicated on the menu so ask)- I recommend the... More

This downtown restaurant has a great atmosphere with exposed brick walls and high ceilings. The food is fantastic, authentic Italian cuisine. Don't go on a buffet day, go when you can order off the menu. Our Italian family loves it. Full bar, great wine list.

We have dined here several times and love it. We have also taken three other couples there and they also loved it. The food is great, the portions are huge and can easily be dinner the next night with a take home. The decor is very cool and the ambiance is just loud enough the feel vibrant, but not overbearing.... More
