W have dined at La Nonna Bella many times and I must say that we finally have a great Italian restaurant in town. Leno the chef is from Italy and he prepares many traditional Italian dishes and some very different dishes, all of which are very enjoyable. His wife Erica will greet you with wonderful Italian hospitality. I have had the fish specials and liked them all. He also prepares game, I have enjoyed the rabbit, venison and the duck.
I really enjoy that there entrees are different and more in the style of a New York City restaurant with a family atmosphere.
I would highly recommend you try it and pay attention to the specials. They also have a large bar area, rather unusual for and Italian restaurant which makes it enjoyable for a before dinner cocktail. Alhough, if you decide to have dinner in the bar café area you may find it a bit noisy.
The price is a bit higher than most of the other Italian restaurants locally, but the cuisine warrants the cost. I am sure you will enjoy the atmosphere and if you decide want something that is not on the menu, I think Leno would accommodate your desires and prepare it, if the ingredients are available.

This was the first restaurant I went to in the area. I grew up in an Italian Neighborhood, and cook very good Italian. I ordered meatballs as an appetizer (you can always tell by the meatballs). Small, soft and tasting okay, but as if they were simmered in beef broth, then put in sauce. Really? Then I got Chicken Scarapriello. Again, only okay. Had to ask for a side of spaghetti? Who would serve something like that without a pasta compliment? The sadest part was the portion to price ratio. NOT someplace to take the family for a sunday meal unless you're a banker.
