The calzones were delicious. They are prepared fresh so be willing to wait, but it is worth the wait.

We drove 13 miles to try Bella's since it received excellent reviews. This was one of the worst meals I've had in a while! There were 8 of us(3 kids and 5 adults). We could not get the kids food before the adults. For starters, the fried mozzarella was already congealed and cool when it got to the table. Next, the 2 chicken parm came out cold and rubbery(extremely overcooked) and the veal parm came out raw(after my dad ate a couple bites he said it was mushy and looked to find it was bloody but hard to see due to decreased lighting where we were seated). Also, the buttered noodles for 1 of the kids was sitting in a bowl half filled with butter(more than anyone needs since it was almost soupy but edible). Finally was the calzone which came out with congealed cheese and a totally saturated, soggy bottom from all the oil leaving it not edible as well. Good luck to anyone that eats there!

This is our 2nd time to Bella's. This is obviously one of the best restaurants in Banner Elk/Sugar Mtn area. This place is always packed, we only had to wait 25 minutes or so on a Saturday night. But so worth it! YUM. This time I got the Eggplant and husband had Lasagna, it was the best ever. We love Italian food and eat it all the time, and Bella's is far above the rest. The bread is so delicious. Service is excellent. Give it a try you will not regret it. We would go every weekend if we weren't 1 1/2 hours away.
