A word from Bella Notte Ristorante
Comfort, style and sophistication are the words that customers often use when describing Bella Notte Ristorante, a family owned Italian Restaurant tucked away in a quiet corner of Scottsdale in the heart of Troon North. However what truly makes Bella Notte special is not it's idyllic location or quiet sophistication, it is our family, our staff, and, most of all, our customers.

Bella Notte Ristorante reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Good & Tasty Italian
    ZumbanistaVIP
    Dined on 6/21/2013
    Delicious, well-prepared Italian fare in North Scottsdale with exceptional service. We both had salads for starters; mains were Fettucine Carbonara and Scallopine ala Marsala. Enjoyed the food and wine recommendation. This is a step up and the best of 3 Italian restaurants we've tried in Scottsdale. We will return and bring guests.

    This was our first time and our experience was good. The food was prepared well but in our opinion pricing was on the high side. The staff was very attentive but we did have to ask our waitress for things twice and she failed to advise us of the happy hour drink pricing. My wife overheard the waiter from the next table. Overall, the patio was a nice place to dine and the food was good.

    I am half Italian and do a lot of Italian cooking myself, so I'm very critical of the normal Ameritalian places with large heapings of spaghetti and meatballs, etc. Bella Notte has inovative authentic Italian creations. Both of our meals that night were mouthwatering. The caesar was crisp and full of flavor. No room for desert, but we checked it out and couple of items caught our eye for next time. I'm definitely heading there in my near future!

    Dined on 5/18/2013
    Horrible experience! Took my wife there for her bday & was expecting great service & minimally good food for which neither was present! 2 tables were sat AFTER us one 4 top & one 6 top - both had cocktails, wine, bread & apps before we ever en received our wine. Our waiter was non attentive. My wife didn't get what she ordered and the owner simple blew it off asking "did you like it?" What? I expect NOT to get charged for something I didn't order regardless of whether it was enjoyed, which she did not! Too rare, sent back & returned burnt. HORRIBLE! DO NOT waste your money! As well, clearly there were diners that are regulars & they got the attention & have no clue what GOOD food is - their service was excellent!

    Four of us spent a lovely evening at Bella Notte, eating on their outdoor patio. Everything (food, drinks, service) was excellent. Our waitress was friendly and helpful with suggestions on food selection. The bruschetta and mussel appetizers were delicious. In fact, the white sauce used with the mussels was so good, we asked for extra bread so we could sop it up. We didn't want to waste any of it. The mussels were not overcooked, as they can easily be. Three of us had Linguine Malafemmena, with lobster, shrimp, scallops and mushrooms. The fourth person in our party had one of the evening's specials -- Cioppinio. This was also an excellent choice (although rather pricey at $38.95). All in all, a place we will come back to.

    This is a fairly new Troon North neighborhood gem! Family-owned and operated, Bella Notte treats guests as part of its family, too. The food is excellent, and it's a terrific place to enjoy dinner casually, celebrate a very special occasion, or just drop by for an after-dinner coffee and dessert. Don't miss the tiramisu! Kudos to Chef James, owners Ada and Patty (mother and daughter), and the whole dining staff - -part of the extended family.

    Food was very good, restaurant staff was friendly, great menu of Italian dishes. Nice patio area and a cozy inside dining area well appointed. There is another Italian place in the neighborhood with the same type of food, ambiance and service. The other has a little better food, better service and the dishes are the same price as Bella Notte. I wish Bella would so something different to set themselves apart from the other place, because I would give the nod to the other place if I was spending that same dollar and wanted that type of dining experience.

    We really did want this to be outstanding but it is not. We are very used to good Italian fare and walked away disappointed from this restaurant. Especially when you look at the cost of what we spent for a split meal. We have no problem paying well for excellent food, mediocre not so much. This is the latter in our opinion. Sorry.

    I went there with my wife on the weekend of valentines and was very impressed, the food was awesome and the desert was beyond awesome. The service was good for the busyness and they were also short handed that night. But even still my drink was always topped off and I never felt like we hd been forgotten about. Overall the experience was great and would highly recommend it to others wanting a good Italian place.

    We're eager to return for a second dining experience that seems to be more ‘Italian’ than some pretenders in the valley are. The Rigatoni Boscaiola and Melanzane Parmigiana were outstanding from preparation to presentation, portion, taste and value. Coupling the meal, excellent service and atmosphere provides more than sufficient motivation to return and enjoy.

    Overall solid choice for italian, especially with limited selections in the immediate area unless you go further south closer to DC ranch. Service was slightly above average for me -- staff was super friendly and knowledgeable, but that was slightly offset by at time inattentiveness - had to ask a few times additional bread etc. Food I debated between a 3 and a 4, so really call it a 3.5. The cioppino was very good, the chicken parm & calamari app were just average. The desserts were excellent - we had the chocolate cake, vanilla ice cream & a cheesecake. Interestingly, the presentation of the desserts was top notch, whereas the apps & entrees were pretty average.

    Love Bella Notte! We were there to celebrate a birthday, and it could not have been more perfect. We all started with the wedge salads, which were fresh and terrific. For main courses, two of us split the ciopinno, and the other had the homemade ravioli. Everything was fantastic. For dessert, we had the warm berries, which were to die for. All in all, the food, ambiance, and service were perfection. I am so happy to see a neighborhood place like Bella Notte succeed.

    I had a fish dish that was excellent. My husband meal however was not as tasty as mine. I always thought that Italian meant a little garlic of some kind was added. Not this though. It had cinnamon with a real different taste. It was very tasty except for that being added. The owners were very gracious however. She said that others have had it and also had made comments about the taste bein odd. So because of that they were going to remove it from the menu. They gave us a nice dessert on the house to make up for it. So the overall experience was worth the drive. It was a long drive for us coming from awhatukee.
