The noise level increased a little too much once the piano bar began playing, making conversation more difficult.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe visited the restaurantWe visited the restaurant on a recommendation.

We have recommended several times and will be back.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went with another coupleWe went with another couple and had a great time listening to your piano player, Charlie Wiseman and enjoying the ambiance of the restaurant. Barbie, our waitress, was very pleasant and helpful in helping us decide what to get for dinner. Barbie and the quality of food and service made it a place we will definitely return to; hopefully as much as possible and with more of our friends.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to celebrate anniversarWe selected Bella Monte to celebrate our 24th anniversary and drove from Hampton to Virginia Beach, with much anticipation. We were not disappointed in any way! This was an excellent place to dine!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly Reccommend!!I took my boyfriend here over the weekend for a date night. He's Italian and is VERY picky and weird about going to italian places since his Grandma cooks authentic Italian food... and nothing seems to live up to it. BUT, we were both very impressed with the menu & the food we ordered. It was all cooked perfectly and tasted delicious! For appetizers we got Calamari and Garlic cloves, goat cheese and pita bread. All delicious. For the entre, my boyfriend got spaghetti with meatballs (so original) and I got the scallops with sweet potato puree (this was the only thing I wasn't impressed with), and sauteed apples and strawberries. All delicious. For dessert, we ordered a cannoli and gelato. Great experience and we will return!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time there, enjoyedFirst time there, enjoyed the meal and will return3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent restaurant--a littleExcellent restaurant--a little out of the way if you don't live in the neighborhood, but a great find! The restaurant has a deli attached with great wines and a fantastic meat/cheese selection. If you buy a bottle of wine there, you can have it with your meal for only a 5.00 corking fee. Two thumbs up.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a nice time there forHad a nice time there for Valentines dinner and I would return one day.....2/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOff the Beaten Path SuccessThe food was delicious. They made sure to cater to our various needs -- one vegan, one no-cheese and low acid -- and were really helpful in creating dishes for us that worked with our restrictions. The service was a little slow at first but we arrived early so we were ok waiting. The ambiance is really great. We loved the little shop attached to the restaurant and we even got our desserts from the chocolate bar there after our meal. It's a little off the beaten path of Virginia Beach, but I think this is what makes it good. It's definitely not touristy but is within about two miles of the beach, so overall really convenient. Pricing was very reasonable for a good meal.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
