"Their service and food quality is as perfect for a party as when you go for a small dinner. Hosted my son’s Communion here and relatives are still raving about the wonderful food and service. It's our family favorite!"

"I have been going to Bella Italia my entire life. The food is consistently delicious and fresh. The calamari is to die for and the portion sizes are enough to eat for two days. I definitely recommend Bella Italia!"
