Had high hopes for this place after reading the reviews, but it was disappointing. Yes, the garlic knots were good, but that's pretty much where the compliments end. The food was just bland and not very hot. They weren't crowded for a Saturday. The place...More

We'd heard that Bella Mia had changed hands and were leery of going back. No need to worry! Same delicious food; huge portions to take home. Garlic knots unchanged. Service was very good. Whew! That's a relief!
