This restaurant and Enoteca is our absolute new favorite in Virginia Beach. It is conveniently located on Laskin Road, just minutes from the beach. There is a wine tasting before dinner which was so relaxing. Dinner choices are all exceptional. A pianist played and sang throughout our evening. The service is top notch. The atmosphere is classy and welcoming. Wearing nice casual is recommended. No beach clothes. We will definitely be back each year when we vacation in Virginia Beach.

Very enjoyable experience from the owner greeting at the door through a very attractive and tasteful Blackened Drum fish special. Kudos to the outstanding chef who created that entree. Let me not forget the Oyster Rockefeller and the chocolate cheesecake. Don't take my word for it. Go there yourself. May I add they have good seating so you don't have to listen to your adjoining neighbors conversations and adequate staff so they are very attentive to their guests. There is an adjacent bar with a very good wine selection that looked very lively. As you are walking out take advantage of the 3 bottle of wine special for 31 dollars. You can find a few gems in the mix. Definitely worth the trip and a skip away from Atlantic Avenue if you are vacationing. GO...

We were quite pleased with the redesigned Bella Monte, which has a contemporary, welcoming, atmosphere. Service was excellent and the food was outstanding. From appetizers to main courses each was different and everyone well pleased with their choices. This is definitely a star on our revisit list.

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!
