I have seen some negative reviews and I don't know what happened?? We have eaten here multiple times and the food is excellent. The service is also exceptional and the atmosphere very good.

Good food. Bread is delicious, better than the entree! Pricy. Average. Staff was nice. Party of 8 and my husband got the wrong meal, but being so nice, he ate the cheesy chicken dish. Wasn't happy! There. 100 words!

Recently enjoyed dinner at Bella Cucina. From start to finish it was a delight. Our waitress was very efficient and professional. The warm bread and dipping oil was great. We shared an antipasto salad, it was loaded with very fresh, tasty ingredients. We loved using the dipping oil as a dressing for it. We both ordered the Veal Parm, mine... More

I was in town for the weekend and the hotel I was staying at recommended this location. I only ordered pizza however it was not good...the pizza was borderline burnt and had very little flavor. However, all the staff were friendly!

Servers were lovely, but meals did not live up to the price in the formal dining area. 160 dollars for 5 adults seemed too much for the meals provided. Lasagne was poor, steak special was slightly tough. Need better vegetables. Calamari starter was very nice.

Stopped by for a quick lunch, consisting of Pizza slices, salad and several teas. Lunch service provides the option of individual pizza slices, premade, for reheating. Very pleasantly Suprised, with Quality of pizza, with a generous fresh salad. Drinks are drinks, but everything else was very good.

We were a party of eight and had two diners who are overwhelming particular...they ALWAYS grill servers. Our server was up to the challenge and di an exceptional job without causing the rest of the party embarrassment.Food was well prepared and well seasoned. Portions were satisfying. The only shortcoming was the bread was not sufficient for the size and taste... More

My family has been coming here since they opened. The by-the-slice pizza and the subs are our favorites. We also frequently add salads, which are always fresh, with house-made dressings. It's a great lunch spot

Bella Cucina has ben a fixture in Southport for over 10 years. The spot is favored by locals and tourists alike for its broad selection of menu items. In a way, Bella's can be considered two restaurants in one. There's a sandwich / piazza shop that has a wide opening on its right wall leading to the eat-in bar area... More
