Reviewed 15 April 2014

The Pizza's are great and the Bella Burger is AWESOME! There is always something fun going on at this classic old style saloon.

“Average at best”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local vendor and we found it to be bland and boring. The service however was quite good they just need to improve the quality of their food.

“Terrible food , loud and cramped banquet room”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

I attended a banquet dinner recently , location upstairs ,near a smelly hallway. Staff was attentive , salad not bad, but main courses looked like a mass of something piled on a plate. Lasagne was the only dish palatable, the chicken ?parmesean ? Was a 1 out of 5, and the tortellini in cream, sauce was just indigestion waiting to happen. Dessert a chocolate mousse which was grainy and had separated, we will not give them a second chance.

“A happening place - at any age!!”
Reviewed 12 October 2013 via mobile

My husband and I have (retired/mid-sixties) spent one night in Jacksonville and went to the Bella to get a take-out pizza. When we arrived there were already people in the lobby waiting to be seated. The hostess offered us a table for two in the bar and we were seated immediately. The energy in this place is amazing! It was like walking into a saloon in the 1900s. Since we were told a pizza would be a 30 minute wait, we had time to go through 2 glasses of wine. The bartender and server were running! The young man kept our water glasses filled and we were so impressed with his work ethic we gave him a generous tip. The band set up and started playing right in front of us, so that was an added pleasure, as I first went there 22 years ago. I even met Joan Baez there at that time, as she had performed at the Britt on the hill. And the pizza was great!
