We stopped for dinner on an off season Sunday night. The server was friendly but service was slow. The food was barely adequate. We saw a family wait 15 minutes for a table even though plenty were open because the hostess was out on an errand.

I was in the mood for good Italian food but I came to the wrong place. Outside of this restaurant being used, (briefly) for a scene in the movie Twilight there is nothing compelling about Bella Italia. The service was poor. The food was average. Not good but not offensive. I guess I wanted something nicer. Live and learn.

If you're in P.A., you gotta go to this place! Awesome Italian cuisine with knowledgeable staff! A bit on the pricey side, but well worth it!

My friend and I stopped in here late on a Saturday evening without reservations. The restaurant was very busy, but we were seated within a few minutes. The food here is excellent! Started with the mussels, which were very fresh and in an absolutely fabulous sauce! There were quite a few things on the menu calling my name, but I... More

Very typical Italian cuisine. Well presented & well cooked. I had the mushroom ravioli which was smothered in a delicious mushroom sauce, full of mushrooms from the Olympic Peninsula. Great to eat local food.

We went for the Twilight experience. I think they could play more into the moment a little more. There were 3 people working there on a Saturday night. They needed someone to buss tables because the 3 servers were doing it all. so things took a longer time than necessary.

Menu selections were good, service was good and they had a wine tasting thing going on (everyday wine choices are always plentiful).

Took the wife in for dinner as I have stopped in once to have mussels which were excellent. We started with the mussels which were some of the best we have had, and were mussel nuts. I had the duck breast, and the wife had the special pork tenderloin. My duck was cooked perfect M/R with garlic mashed and eggplant... More

We always enjoy our annual trip to Port Angeles, and Bella Italia is always on our must-visit list! I love the chicken parm and my husband loves the mushroom ravioli. Those with a bottle of wine, and you'll have everything you need for a perfect evening!
