Great food!Bella Monica has absolutely the best Italian food in Raleigh. The food is always prepared to perfection. I would recommend making reservations.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed the food. Great serviceEnjoyed the food. Great service and a nice wine selection.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGluten Free and DeliciousI had been to Bella Monica before and loved it. It was still great, but this time, later on in the afternoon, it was noisy. The music was loud and our table wasn't the best . There are always lots of staff around the cashier. The food is wonderful. You can't beat the portions for the typical Italian parmigiana dishes. Salads are small and a bit expensive. The gluten free pizza is just OK. The desserts are out of this world. I will go back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAll freshly prepared foodsAll freshly prepared foods served with excellent professionalism.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply outstanding!Excellent food + outstanding service = Great dining experience!

We are already booked for one month from now to make sure we don't have to wait again!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways perfectIf you're gluten free, eat here. If you're not GF, eat here.

The food was delicious and I really appreciated the thoughtful touches such as glitter confetti on our table and a birthday greeting for me drawn in chalk on the outside sidewalk. This is truly my favorite restaurant!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI was very glad I made a reservatioI was very glad I made a reservation. We had a large table with plenty of room. Food was great! Service was great! Will definitely go back!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe location is not wonderfulThe location is not wonderful being located at the corner of a strip mall but they try very hard to make it a pleasant experience. Even dining outside is ok even with cars going by all the time as they have drape like coverings on the open sides to make it cozier and warmer. I've eaten here many times and it never disappoints. The service is always very friendly and the staff strives to make your dining experience enjoyable.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurantAlways a great meal at Bella Monica. At times I crave their bread and Caesar salad. Great service and food.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome place!I absolutely love this restaurant. They have a great choice of Gluten Free items as well as non-Gluten Free items. Their portions are on the larger side but not too large that you feel like you could eat a whole week on the food.
The desserts were phenomenal!

The manicotti and the fresh fusilli were good. The sauce (gravy) is wonderful.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGluten Free FindFabulous restaurant, especially if you're gluten free. Most restaurants that have gluten free offer a few of their regular items without the gluten toppings. This place goes all out! Gluten free bread and salad before the meal, and a huge menu of items that don't feel like they are just missing the sauce or shredded cheese. Highly recommend!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways one of my very favorites!!!Always one of my very favorites!!! Best Italian in Raleigh, hands down!!!!!
