Diner Reviews
  • "we were visiting from out of town and a friend recommended this place. we were impressed with the friendly staff as we walked through the gift shop side (pricey for eclectic type stuff if you're into that). the better deal was the 3 for $26 wall of wine, quite the selection and the though we never heard of any of the wines before, the descriptions were fitting and we were not disappointed when we tried a bottle the next evening. the appetizers were amazing and the main course was stunning. the servers were friendly and attentive. we would definitely recommend and revisit this place again."

  • "I am a runner, and I sign up for races in the Virginia Beach area, just so I can go to Bella Monte. I make the reservation here before I even pay for my race number. Then, I go into the shop and find a Mothers' Day or birthday present for my mother (depending on the time of the year), and a great food treat for myself."

  • "The service was attentive. The food was splendid. We had studied the menu online and eager to try certain offerings. To our surprise, they were offering a special valentine menu only. Everything we ate as wonderful. We will return to try more of their offerings."

  • "We used open table for the first time to find somewhere to eat on the day after Valentines Day which I was quick to learn is just as busy as Valentines day for dinner. I was pleasantly surprised to see that my reservation went through without any issues using the Open Table option from Bella Monte's web page. Bella Monte is one of our favorite places so we had a really enjoyable night and yummy dinner. The rigatoni alla vodka is our favorite."

  • "We went here for Valentines day and ordered off of the special Valentine's Day Menu. For appetizer, we had the Calamari and it was just the right amount. The marinara sauce was the best sauce I've ever tasted, and the little bit of the smoky cream sauce on the side was an excellent idea. We split the Poached egg Caesar Salad. I have never heard of putting a poached egg on a Caesar salad and it was amazing. It added a creamy deliciousness that complimented the Caesar dressing perfectly. My wife got the Lobster risotto, she thoroughly enjoyed it, i got the crabmeat filet mignon, medium rare. The steak melted in my mouth and the crabmeat and mashed potatoes made it a hearty meal. We also enjoyed the complimentary bread and the house wine."

  • "As usual it was noisy..having a piano bar near the entrance keeps the noise level high. Everybody seemed to be having lots of fun…very busy, large group in the back…special event. Food was served hot and was good."

  • "Bella Monte is my favorite local spot. It is an upscale casual atmosphere with an intriguing decor. The food is always excellent whether a standard or feature menu item. And, the live piano music adds to the ambience as Charlie's expertise provides wonderful renditions. It is a definite recommendation for an enjoyable evening."

  • "We have dined here a number of times and they always fall short of the mark. Tonight we had a reservation and arrived on time. There was no hostess at the desk so we stood waiting for more than five minutes. What a way to welcome guests! When seated our server was very apologetic about our wait. After reading the menu I had a question about an item. I checked with our server and she answered my question and was able to make a slight change to my choice. However, when my dinner arrived it was not what I ordered, but I ate it anyway. While she was very apologetic about the mistake and offered desserts, it did leave a bad taste in my mouth! Some things are just better left unsaid...."
