Diner Reviews
  • "Really like going to Bella Sogno for Italian food close to home. BYOB - definitely worth the price. Inside is a little packed, so we wait for warmer months to enjoy the outdoor dining tables available."

  • "This is our favorite place. Food is always superb. Service is very very good and very attentive. Same wait staff each time we've been there. Jody was wonderful on our last visit. It's a BYOB and I love that!!! Don't want to say too much great stuff or it will become everyone's favorite! All dishes are outstanding. I love the apple walnut salad with feta so much . My husband and I always get it and share it Just love it there! Small and inviting!"

  • "I always have a great meal at Bella Sogna. The food is terrific and so is the service. the only negative is the restaurant is small and the seating is cramped...Save room for the cheesecake...it is worth it!"

  • "Arrived in a nearby town and wanted a good meal. A quick search on Open Table and I had a reservation at Bella Sogno. Loved it instantly when I walked through the front doors. Filled with locals. The waitress was awesome (even charged my phone for me - so I could GPS back to the hotel). The food was amazing - my eggplant parm - delicious!!! The cheesecake was fabulous. I was lucky to have a good bottle of wine in my truck -the restaurant is BYOB. New concept for me. I would totally go back and wish this restaurant was in my neighborhood in Virginia. Fabulous find! Thank you."

  • "We dined here at least a dozen times, and the meal consistency is always excellent. My wife and I dined out at 3 other local italian establishments during the past 2 weeks, and all were awful, each meal more disappointing than the last. So, this Saturday I made reservations at the Bella Sogno and as usual, it was wonderful. I had the shrimp Francese, which was tender and flavorful, I never had better. I usually order the veal, a great choice at Bella Sogno, but I am glad I tried the shrimp. The place can be crowded, and tables are tightly spaced, but who cares. It is busy because it is a great restaurant."

  • "I have been going to Bella Sogno for about 4 years now. Each time I visit, I look to try a new menu item or special of the day. I am glad to say I have never been disappointed with a meal! Portions are very generous and the meats, seafood and vegetables are always fresh and well prepared. I would recommend this BYOB to anyone looking for quality northern Italian cooking at the Jersey Shore!"

  • "We choose this place because it is only a few blocks from the Bradley Beach Cinema. It's a small place with good prices and impressive food. We asked to have our table changed as we didn't want a draft from the door. Although the place was practically empty this seemed to be a problem. The hostess/waitress (the were 2 waitresses) seemed to have attitude towards us after that. When we asked for bread we were told we'd get it after we ordered. Noticed the table next to us got it before ordering. Don't really understand what that was all about but we chose not to let it ruin our evening and the delicious food more than made up for it plus the other waitress was pleasant."

  • "My new favorite restaurant. Great food... lots of options. I went with the pasta special which had shrimp and clams. Wonderful. Best Clams Casino around. My favorite part of the night was that I was not rushed. If I am going to spend a lot of money on a dinner, I expect to enjoy it. That was certainly the case at Bella Sogno. Mossuto's in Wall NJ on route 35 should take a page from the Bella Sogno book. Well worth the money I spent. Cannot wait to go back!"

  • "One of our favorite places. Although we tell many people about the outstanding food, we're afraid if we tell too many people we won't be able to get in! Also great to BYOB!"

  • "We went here because we could get a resy and to try something different. We thought the food was just ok but not a $75 dinner at a Byob. So not a good value. It was not very busy and the service was not very attentive. The place is very quaint and cozy though."

  • "One of the few restaurants in the area that is quiet. Cozy with white linen table cloths. Nice menu, good food and service. BYOB is a plus."

  • "The well appointed decor featuring darkly-stained wood-clad walls stands out from anything else in the area - homey and inviting. Food is reliably delicious if not overly innovative, and the service is professional, with a small staff of often only two competently handling a couple of dozen diners. Wonderful for a quiet dinner for two as well as for larger groups, which are never boisterous."

  • "It's hard these days to find a spot that isn't a pub or chain for dining with friends with entrees under $25-$40. Regardless of whether the cuisine is American, Italian, French, fusion, etc. there's a price gap that forces you, if you want to go moderate, to sacrifice ambiance, originality and flavor. Not so at Bella Sogno (Beautiful Dream). The tables may be squeezed together a little too much, but the friendly dish of delicious caponata while you await your food will keep you busy and satiated. The menu runs the gamut of classical Italian, with lots of fish and signature entrees. OMG Early Bird -- $15!! Desserts are lovely, such as the tiramisu. In the end, your wallet will still have a few bucks left in it and you'll walk out happy."
