Outstanding as always!Place never fails. Even when they are jammed they get you in.
Food is unmatched!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood but....As with most restaurants when the specials are described the price is not revealed. We did order off the special menu and when we received the bill we were speechless. The entrees were exorbinate! I learned that as I go forward, I will always ask the price of the special entree. What we paid for a casual dinner with friends is usually saved for those special occasions.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen going here for years.Been going here for years.

Can't wait to go back4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Meals all around;Excellent Meals all around; Best linguine with clam sauce ever! Pizza spectacular.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMCheaper than Tickest to ItalyThis is the most authentic Italian restaurant in the United States at which I have eaten. The salad with fennel and arugula was perfectly dressed. The butternut squash ravioli with sage/butter sauce combined the sensations of a remarkably savory dish with eating a dessert surrounded by homemade pasta - as good as any in Bologna. The paccheri with veal ragu were delicious and perfectly al dente. House made burrata was sensational. The crust on the pizza caprese was slightly charred and the cheese was real mozzarella di bufula. The wine list has offerings from all over Italy, not just Tuscany and the Piedmont. Service was very European - relaxed, yet attentive and professional. This is the real deal.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had never been to BellaWe had never been to Bella Blu on a Saturday evening before. It was very different than any previous week night visit. We had an 8:30 reservation, but experienced LONG wait for our table. The restaurant was packed and apparently no one wanted to leave! When we were finally seated, they had cranked the techno beat music so loud that we could barely hear each other speak. We are all music lovers, but this was too much.
On the other hand the food was delicious and the service was great!
We will go back again just not on a Saturday night!2/23/2013 12:00:00 AMService and food excellent.Service and food excellent. Will definitely go back.

I love the murals. They make me smile. And the food is delicious. Everyone I bring to the restaurant falls in love with it.1/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food for for which you'll payHaving lived in the neighborhood for a few years and always hearing good things, we finally gave Bella Blu a visit. The food was truly outstanding and the service was very well executed. One caution to new visitors (that we learned the hard way): don't wait until the check comes to learn the price of specials. As yummy as it was, fifty-seven bucks is a bit dear for a piece of Dover sole.12/31/2012 12:00:00 AMA wonderful experience. WeA wonderful experience. We brought our friends from out of town and they could not have been more pleased.12/23/2012 12:00:00 AMWe always have the best waiterWe always have the best waiter here - the best in NY!

The food is delicious and our waiter was the best ever!12/17/2012 12:00:00 AMThe place was obviously veryThe place was obviously very popular and busy....but the service was great and the wait staff in good humor and even funny. Food was wonderful and we didn't feel rushed despite the fact that they wanted to turn the table over to the next party.
The noise level was high....a little difficult for conversation but we also have mild hearing impairment so that might not be a problem for all.11/24/2012 12:00:00 AM
