Scrumptious, eclectic fare...funky decor and excellent staff! We thoroughly enjoyed the deep fried spinach, squash lasagna and baklava cheesecake. The portions were more than generous, the price was right and BYOB is a welcome bonus. We will definitely return to La Bella!

This is a unique, and interesting place. Great menu, nice staff, and delicious food. They do not serve alcohol, but luckily I was traveling, so I had a bottle of wine in my car! All the salad dressings are homemade and you are invited to try as many as you like. My husband ordered the creamy onion Fred, and loved... More

This is my second trip back to this establishment. Being that it was a cold Fall evening, I had the pork chops and caramel and apple dressing. DELICIOUS! The chops were moist and meaty and flavorful and the accompanying side dishes (mashed potatoes and dressing) were nicely done and delicious. We took our own wine as they do not have... More

We stopped here on my way back home from a roadtrip. It was a little expensive but it was also absolutely delicious. The average meal is about $15-20 just so you aren't surprised but it's worth it.
