Food was great

First time at this restaurant and we loved it the food was great and delicious. Large portions so bring your appetite. I had the risotto and oh my gosh it was delicious and it had sausage and mushrooms. So good. I would definitely come back here. I recommend this restaurant to all who want good food.

authentic delicious food here

We ended up at Bella’s two nights in a row while in town for the weekend. The pizza was so good, we came back for the spaghetti we saw at the table next to us. Wow, we can’t say enough about the authentic delicious food here. Don’t miss out if you have the chance. Jessica was our waitress both nights as well, and she was great! Highly recommend this place, 10/10!

Excellent service, food, and atmosphere

Excellent service, food, and atmosphere but little expensive. My family and I had a great meal here. The pizza looked good but I had the mazo Stromboli, chicken Marsalis, and alfredo pasta. All three dishes was great, I would definitely go back but make sure they write the right cell phone number or you will be waiting longer as we did in our car waiting for them to call for seats in restaurant.


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!


like we were royalty

Just before dinner rush in Saturday Jordan took care of my lady and I like we were royalty. The food, as always, was Classic Bella’s. Good, hot and prompt also of note, it was correct. Which is hard to find these days. Other restaurants appear to have given up when it comes to service. Our drinks NEVER went empty and even as business increased service never diminished.
Thanks again Jordan and Bella’s.

Prices are affordable for a family

Quick, friendly service even on the Saturday evening I was there. Prices are affordable for a family. I had meat Lasagna which was very good although I prefer less mozzarella but, hey, I rather that they they skimp on it. Portion was more than I could eat. Good salad and a reasonable but limited selection of wines. Nice selection of deserts. My meal with a glass of the best wine and canoli was $45 including tax. Just the mussle appetizer and Lasagna was around $25.

Best Italian food in the area hands down

Best Italian food in the area hands down. The place is busy so you may have to wait but the food is worth it. Generous portions, kids menu, full bar, great beer selection, etc. Casual and buzzing atmosphere.


Busy labor day/football weekend

Didn’t disappoint. Busy labor day/football weekend, little bit of wait, but we instead snagged seats at bar. Service and promptness spot on. Bartender said they brought extra kitchen help for rush…bravo. oh, food was excellent too. Bruschetta, cheese ravioli and glazed salmon. Culinary orgasm.

“that was the best I ever had”

My wife and I routinely go into Bella’s for a small snack and drinks. On several occasions we have eaten dinner and have always found it to be very good. Last evening we had friends in town and chose to eat dinner at Bella’s. I chose the Veal Piccata with Risotto. I very rarely say “that was the best I ever had,” but that was the best veal and risotto I ever had! I complimented the chef and sought out the owner who wasn’t there. What an excellent meal! If you come into town, try Bella’s. You won’t be sorry!

Fantastic Italian restaurant

Fantastic Italian restaurant. We eat there every time we are in the Sugar Mountain area. Service has not always been the best, but Kaleigh was our server this time and she was excellent. Portions are large and always taste delicious. I love garlic, and Bella’s uses plenty. Note: Bella’s breakfast is not at same location as their lunch and dinner restaurant. Haven’t tried the breakfast spot.
