“Great Pizza and Manicotti”
Reviewed 15 November 2011

This place is fun, friendly and has great food. The sauces are excellent! The rolls are soft and delicious. The manicotti is amazing, saucy and cheesy. The pizza is wonderful. Seek this place out if you're dying for some pasta or pizza while visiting Oahu.

“Tasty food, good service, reasonable prices”
Reviewed 25 August 2011

We went with a total of 12 friends, which almost filled the restaurant. The service was great to start, drinks (byob) arrived promptly, as did appetizers. Everything is "home cooked" so service after that was spotty, but good. Food delicious, but too much! Everyone needed a take - out box to take leftovers! Better for parties of 2-4.

“Fun Family Italian Food”
Reviewed 11 August 2011

Bella Mia is a really nice "Family Style" Italian Restaurant.
They make several Pastas and other Italian Dishes in a friendly atmosphere. A great choice for groups also. BYOB

“On an island with little options other than Pan Pacific fare, this little joint is the best!”
Reviewed 28 July 2011

Bella Mia Italian restaurant is one of the best kept secrets in the Kaimuki area of Honolulu. The food is over the top and the customer service is on equal par. Generous portions are priced right and the menu has a little something for everyone. We highly recommend this restaurant and make the trip downtown every time we want Italian. They do not serve alcohol but will gladly uncork wine that you bring with you. Don't miss an opportunity to eat here!

“Excellent food, reasonable prices”
Reviewed 16 June 2011

Bella Mia Ristorante has had numerous favorable reviews in several publications about dining out in Honolulu. The Chef is from Brooklyn, New York, he brings that tradition of Italian cooking with him.

Good ambiance in a small setting. Hopefully the ristorante will expand into a recently vacated space in the same location.

Bring your own wine. There is no corkage fee. Wine glasses and a professional level corkscrew will be cheerfully provided!

A basket of delicious, fresh baked hot rolls and a small bowl of marinara sauce (butter on request) will be placed on the table immediately after you are seated. Several specials are listed at the entry to the Ristorante. There are many varieties of dishes and pastas listed. The Ristorante serves a variety of sizes of pizza and phoned in to-go orders.

My favorite is the Cannelloni in either marinara sauce or (upon request) Alfredo sauce..

My friends and I visit Bella Mia several times a month and we have always been pleased with the food and the small size of the final bill.

The bathroom for the complex of restaurants is located down a corridor where many cooling and refrigeration units are vented - consequently, the restrooms are like bake ovens which is really the only negative factor for this restaurant!
