I've been eating at Bella Notte since it opened decades ago, but just had lunch here a few days ago and thought I'd put a review up. The inside of the restaurant is just as nice and new-looking as it was when it opened in the 1990s. It's such a pleasant atmosphere (feels like you're sitting outside in a courtyard... More

We were a party of 5, three adults and two children. All our meals were very tasty and service was attentive. The bread was hot and accompanied by herbed olive oil. The two salads were fresh and all mains were well-proportioned and dessert was a good variety. The venue is very pretty. We tried making reservations on-line through Open-table which... More

If you are looking for a great "date dinner location " then this is for you! Dim lighting creates a wonderful atmosphere. Always a safe bet for delicious food!!

I wasn't happy overall with my experience here. We were seated in the back next to the soda machine. Small cramped area. The food was mediocre at best. Dry alfredo. Honestly, I would choose Olive Garden over this experience

Bella Botte is one of our favorite Lexington restaurants. The menu is creative as well as provides all of the standard Italian dishes. The menu changes seasonally. The patio is like being in Italy. The main dining room has a tree growing through it!

My husband and I were in Lexington recently to attend a horse event and visited Bella Notte for dinner on a Saturday night. They were very busy and we had to wait approximately 15 minutes past our reservation time. However, once seated, the service was excellent. Our server promptly took our drink orders and had a warm loaf of bread... More
