My friend who met us assured us the evening vibe was pleasant, but the lunchtime atmosphere was cold and more like fast food (except it was slow) than a sit-down restaurant. We had to line up to place our orders, then sat down and waited and waited and waited... no silverware (plastic), no dishes (takeout containers), and water or drinks... More

I’m sorry you had a bad experience. We didn’t properly explain our unique arrangement. I’m not sure what happened in your particular instance but guests are served meals with silverware and china. Perhaps we were somehow under the impression that you were taking the food to go. During lunch the drinks are self-serve and slices are served on paper plates.... More

My husband and our daughters went out for Bella Cucina pizza while they were on spring break. They were accommodated children and adults and the pizza was great. The toppings were fresh and the pizza didn't fall apart like some other places.

Three of us had a delightful dinner here. Our waitress Miranda was so friendly and helpful. I had the veal parmigiana which was very good. We also had the eggplant parmigiana and tortellini bolognese. Everything was so good. We were so full we did not have dessert. Next time I hope we get dessert. So glad we decided to visit... More

We went here to celebrate my birthday. This was probably my third time eating here. This night I had the Sea Bass with lemon risotto and asparagus. The fish was fresh, moist and delicious but a small portion and over priced. The asparagus cooked to perfection. But the real surprise was the risotto. It was delicious. Our server was extremely...

Had dinner here last night, and it was simply fantastic. I had the Ravioli special, portabello ravioli with beef medallions in a rich sauce. The server suggested a Chianti to pair with it. It was fantastic. My dinner date had the fresh sea bass. Also fantastic. And the portions were perfect. Pair that with great atmosphere and great service, and... More

I received a gift certificate from Bella Cucina which was donated to our local fire department. My wife and I shared a large vegetarian pizza accompanied by side salads and complimentary garlic knots (GREAT). Pizza was very generous and more than satisfied our hunger. Service was good but I'm am so tired of hearing "No problem." when the customer says... More

A change in the marinara sauce complimented the popular family recipe meatballs. The previous sauce, I thought, was too heavy for my taste. We were told by the staff that an effort to improve the sauce was a labor of love that took several weeks to perfect. The work by the owner and executive chef was a success. The new... More
