There is no better place for Italian food anywhere and that includes a big chunk of Italy as well. You see the chef/owner was born there so he knows what Italian food should be and he also knows how to do it. Do you like things homemade? Well that's what you get here. Now if you can't find something on... More

My wife and I recently visited La Nonna Bella. It was our first time there. We were told that it has been there for 6 years. I was quite surprised. As it turned out, we've been missing out for all of those years. The restaurant was fabulous, with one plate of food better than the previous one. I started with... More

About as close to being in Italy as you can get. Food was excellent! Service was great. We had the Bronzino and the Penne Filanti as others recommended and wow they were right! Delicious!

Food is always delicious, specials are the way to try, servers are friendly and professional. Bussing up the tables are a bit too slow as refilling water glasses pretty non existent. Danny is the best server and quite the gentleman. My recommendations- order any of the red wines they offer by the glass, try the penne filanti as your pasta... More

On the advice of a friend, I went here and was blown away. We ate at the bar and while the service was fair (but friendly), the food was amazing. Starting with the nice warm bread (assorted types), including a side order of meatballs, clam appetizer it just kept getting better and better. It was all capped off by 2... More

The food here is excellent all though pricey. If you know this going in you will have a great time. Everything my friends and I ordered was delicious. We all ordered different pasta dishes. We also ordered appetizers and desserts. I thought $10 to $12 for each dessert was quite high.

I still can't believe how good the food was! We found La Nonna Bella on line, read the reviews and walked the 5 blocks from our hotel. The real reason that we went was because they have outdoor seating and we could bring our dog! Stefania our waiter, was quick to recommend the Penne Filanti, baked penne in a bolognese... More

If you like freshly prepared, delicious food, a lively atmosphere and feeling welcomed as if you are family, you must try La Nonna Bella. My husband had the Penne Filanti and we both raved over it. I had the special-a salmon dish in a white wine sauce with artichokes, capers, shrimp and grilled asparagus. The portions were plentiful. Our son... More
