Why on earth is this restaurant rated #33 out of 56 restaurants in South Port? This is my first time reviewing but not my first time eating at Bella Cucina. It's just consistently good eats.
Don't be fooled by the bar and pizza joint that fronts this restaurant. Behind a large curtain is the entrance to a lovely dining experience.
This family owned restaurant is well run and the food outstanding. We are always seated promptly and the staff are friendly and attentive.
On this recent trip, we ordered veal parmesan, chicken parmesan and shrimp fettuccine alfredo. Hubby reports his veal was a little tough but the marinara sauce delicious. The salad was fresh, and the bread consisted of a multigrained loaf with accompanying spiced olive oil. Son loved his chicken parmesan and both men scrapped their plates for the last drops of the marinara sauce. My shrimp fettuccine was tender and flavorful. On previous excursions to this restaurant we have had manicotti and lasagna which are both quite good.
The decor is pleasant and slightly upscale. One detail I happen to like is the playing of Italian music in the background. It could be Mario Lanza singing opera or Frank Sinatra. crooning. It sets the Italian meal mood.
Not overly priced. This is the place we go when we want good Italian food during our vacations.
