I visit Tampa often. Was looking for a new restaurant to try. I came across Bella's and decided based on reviews to visit. This is a neighborhood restaurant. They do not take reservations. It is quite large so no problem getting in on a Wednesday night. Service was very good. Pizza excellent! Rollatini as well. Good and reasonable wine list. I definitely would go back Tried to go for lunch on Saturday but on weekends only open late afternoon and dinner.

Had a nice pasta dish with plenty to eat. Try the sauce that's a mixed marinara / white cream -- very good and unique.

The food here was awesome, and our server was super nice and attentive. I had the eggplant parm, and it was delicious - instead of deep frying the eggplant, they thinly slice it and bake it with layers of cheese and sauce. Yum. Highly recommended!

The food here was upper class the best yet! Homemade pasta, bread and pizza. It truly was delicious and well prepared. Our service was amazing as well!

There were 15 of us visiting Bella’s and it was a great experience. Brandon was our server for both tables and not enough praises can be put on his services. He was very attentive, made sure all drinks were refreshed constantly, asking if we needed anything. He had great suggestions on dishes. I had a Pasta A Fagioli That was to die for. Delicious!
All entree’s. Arrived at the same time and work hot and delicious. Entrees from Veal Parmigiana, Chicken Marsala etc were very tasty
All of us had a great time and would definitely recommend the restaurant. It was our third time there and we will be back.
