We were driving around after the Winter Carnival and stumbled upon this Italian Restaurant due to the "family friendly" sign. We had a party of 6 including two younger children. The inside is a bit outdated, but that shouldn't deter your appetite. The menu is...More

Came in hungry with two kids. Service was very kind but food wasn't that great. Pasta and meat ball for the kids wasn't very good (one giant meat ball) Two main dishes weren't very good as well. Left hungry.

Good food, reasonable prices, friendly staff. Menu is mostly Italian, with some seafood and American dishes mixed in so there's something for everyone. Salads were fresh mixed greens, entrees were generous portions without being too much.

Given my restaurant experience, I know all the hard work that goes behind preparing meals as I have done it myself. For this reason, I take all feedback (good, bad, or average) very seriously. That is why I am very displeased that your son's steak...More

A family run Italian-American restaurant since 1996, La Bella's is located on route 86 as you're going towards the Olympic village of Lake Placid. We specialize in pasta, steak, seafood, chicken, and veal dishes. Our unique quality is a strong dedication to preparing most of our food from scratch and using fresh ingredients to maximize taste in all of our dishes. Whether it's the bread and dipping sauce we give you as soon as your seated, the entree, or dessert, you can bet that it was probably homemade. On top of guaranteed freshness, we offer generous portions at modest prices so that you really get the bang for your buck! Not a dining out kind of person? You can enjoy our full service bar that is located on the opposite side of the dining room. Our bar offers a large variety of liquors and wines, as well as a decent selection of bottled beers and beer on tap. In case you do get hungry, there is a special bar menu that does burgers, special sandwiches, and fried food among other foods as well. If you're looking for a restaurant with fast, friendly service, homemade fresh food, and a relaxing atmosphere, then La Bella's is exactly the right pick for you!
