My wife and I were staying at the W. Main St Residence Inn and opted for a close Italian restaurant. We made a great choice! Bella's is relatively small and busy. I highly recommend reservation for the evening. It appeared that most of the patrons...More

Omg! Excellent Chicken Parmigiana. The bartender was excellent. Tap beer and good wine selection. Food phenomenal! Big portions so split it. Cannoli was decent as well. Will return!

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Want Italian food? Go to Bella's. We've dined at many 5star restaurants around the nation and around the world so I'm being careful not to overrate. For a local and well established Charlottesville restaurant, it doesn't get much better. Nice job....More

This is not the place to go as a single business traveler. The menu is family style for 2 -4 people and the portions are huge even at that. The food was good, not great, and the service at the bar was inattentive at best....More

Ordered takeout for dinner. Gorgonzola Grilled is completely crave-worthy and unique. It is one of those salads that you dream about. The appetizer special of Smoked Mozzarella Tomato Risotto Cakes was fantastic. The only bad thing about it is that it isn't a regular menu...More

Bella's was recommended by a friend. We loved it. Atmosphere, server, food, and drinks. I could have eaten here twice while in Charlottesville. Loved the family style dining experience. We ordered appetizers, salads, and 3 main dishes and everything was wonderful~especially the cheesecake!!
