We got married in the Wine Cellar at Ora Bella's in June2013 and we haven't been back since. What a mistake, we've had a couple of meals there this year, and we have never been disappointed with the food or pricing.

I attended an engagement party downstairs in the cellar a while ago and really wanted to rave about this little gem. The acoustics were amazing for the jazz band to play and it was cozy and the food delicious. Truly a local gem.
