Banner Elk North Carolina was in need of a warm, friendly, authentic, family style Italian restaurant with excellent food and affordable prices. Bella’s owners wanted to create an atmosphere where the customer always knows they will get the best quality and consistent tasting food possible. They have been the hit of Banner Elk NC with a dedicated local and out-of-town following. The owners believe it has to do with their great food, cozy dining room, five-star service, and reasonable prices. Bella’s Restaurant not only provides excellent service and delicious food, they provide an experience for singles, couples, family, and friends.

Smelled soooo good in the car

The food to go was still excellent! Hot and tasty. The salads were fresh, the bread was garlicky and delicious, and the Chicken Parmigiana was cheesy, melty, the pasta was cooked to perfection and the sauce tasted homemade. My husband and I were very pleased with our dinner. I only wish we lived closer!

Always worth the trip

I live over an hour from this Bella’s but it’s always worth the trip. The staff are fantastic (my last visit, the server had a kid about my nephew’s age and made it a point to be playful with him, it was adorable), the beer selection always has a little for everyone (I’m always down for a stout or porter!), they do a great job with making sure the bread is always hot and fresh…I’m just a big fan in general.

Excellent selection of local craft beer

Decided to treat myself to a nice dinner fairly close to where I have been hiking the Appalachian Trail. There was a table available when I got there. And the waitress was very friendly and efficient. They have an excellent selection of local craft beer. They also have good food! I had a bowl of the ham and bean soup and then the tortellini carbonara! I followed it with a piece of cheesecake. Overall a good experience! Definitely recommend!
