This is a great restaurant located a few miles from the Oceanfront. They have changed hands since we first started coming yet nothing has been lost in the transition. My wife had what she describes as the best scallops she's ever eaten (and she's had her fair share!) which were in some sort of reduced balsamic sauce. I was still a bit full from lunch so had a salad and the scallops appetizer. They were in a pesto sauce and were very good. Our server (wish I knew her name to give her a shout-out) was a most efficient and friendly young woman who had just returned to Va. Beach from Texas. Request her if you want great service!

Enjoyed another wonderful evening at Bella Monte to celebrate our anniversary. On previous visits we enjoyed selecting a bottle to bring to the table, tonight we chose from the impressive wine list. We started with some focaccia bread and marinara sauce-not on the menu anymore, but ask for it! Both entrees were outstanding-salmon special with risotto and vegetables, and the seared scallops with roasted corn and tomatoes.
We typically do not order dessert but were very glad we did this time. The peach and blueberry bread pudding was delicious!
Our service was very good-nice to see the owners making their presence throughout the dining room. We look forward to our next visit!

It is softshell season so I went on a taste test of local Virginia Beach restaurants looking for the best. Hands down, Bella Monte is the winner! They prepare them gluten free so you don't lose the fresh taste of the crab in the coating. They serve a generous serving of three of them. I have been back several times for them since then. Always great!

This was our first time at this restaurant. I believe we will return. The service was excellent and the food very good. We started with a mussels appetizer which was delicious. My shrimp rissoto was great. We had 6:30 reservations... my husband couldn't get the soft shell crab special as they had run out... at 6:30- ridiculous. He we enjoyed his second choice, but had trouble getting past them running out so early. Desserts were a mixed bag. His creme brulee was very good, my bread pudding was delicious, but not bread pudding. No cream product or eggs- not bread pudding. It was nice bread with a bourbon butter sauce. We liked the wine policy... buy a bottle and take the remainder home. A good experience, but not great.
