A word from Bella Tori at the Mansion
Respectable ladies & proper gentlemen used to convene in the parlor for a drink and a bit of conversation before adjourning to the dining room. It was a chance for everyone to transition from the frenetic pace of the outside world to the more leisurely & luxurious one of the dinner table. Sadly, this is a tradition that has vanished in our modern world. But, not at Bella Tori. Housed in an elegant mansion, this restaurant which means “Beautiful Tower” in Italian, Provides guests with a Victorian atmosphere & northern Italian cuisine that will calm even the most work weary heart. The rack of lamb which is particularly well prepared, as are the sea scallops over basil polenta. Enjoy! Lifestyle Magazine: This Victorian Mansion was built in 1895, and restoration began in 2000.In converting the Mansion into a northern Italian Restaurant, we have stayed true to all of the Mansions history & beauty.Continued

  • "A great dining experience. Specials are fantastic. Live music in the background was a treat with a touch of the romantic. I recommend Bella Tori to all who want a great dining experience and a great value."

  • "Had dinner with a friend here Thursday July 31, 2014. Joan was our server. I hadn't seen my friend in a few years, so we were catching up instead of selecting our dinner. After coming back twice to check if we were ready, I figured we wouldn't see her again for a while, but she was very attentive and somehow knew when we were ready and took our orders. The food was excellent as always, I've never had a bad meal here. And though Joan kept an eye on us and checked back to see if we needed anything, we were not rushed in any way by anyone. We had an excellent time. They had recently changed the menu and the crabcakes are no longer a menu selection."

  • "We were promptly greeted and seated. A very nice menu with tasty choices. Our waitress Joan answered all our questions. All courses were evenly spaced not rushed. The food came out hot and delicious. Romantic setting."

  • "We have dined here before and were always pleased. We took friends there Friday and it was at least an hour and a half between appetizer and entre. The waiter never explained but at the end we asked and they said there was a glitch in the kitchen. I think we should have gotten a reduction in the bill. This was a special occasion and our friends paid. Maybe I should write the owner/manager."

  • "This was our second time at Bella Tori at the Mansion. We had brunch the first time and we are still talking about how wonderful it was five months later. Dinner was just as lovely. The food is excelent, service was very good. The guitarist was wonderful - not obtrustive, but added to the ambiance. Truly a wonderful evening. We definitely will go back again. I think Bella Tori at the Mansion will become our spot. We can't wait to go back for brunch, too!"

  • "We were given a corner table and it was very romantic. Fridays are byob and there is a guitar playing that was wonderful. The Crab soup was awesome and my boyfriend had the french onion that was also very good. The server was very attentive and checked on us often. I had the Veal Osso Buco on creamy parmesan risotto. I didn't love the gravy as much but the risotto was very very good. I would definitely go there again."

  • "We have been dining at Belle Tori for a long time now. Our last two (2) experiences has not been up to the standards we expected. Our son had some hairs in his food and the service was very slow. We had to ask for bread and the pasta sauce was just so so. I don't think we'll be going back for a while. Sorry but it was my mother-in-laws 90th birthday and out of the five of us who attended, we were not very impressed."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "The restaurant is a wonderful setting. A romantic spot for special occasions. Excellent food and wine list. The only draw back at times is the service can be a little slow so be prepared to spend a minimum of an hour and a half."

The live acoustic guitarist provided a pleasant surprise and sweet music to soothe us while we enjoyed our expertly prepared meals. Excellent service by the wait staff. We enjoyed the Intimate, comfortable atmosphere conducive to conversation and good digestion. We shall return."

  • "I had my daughter's wedding shower at Bella Tori and it far exceeded my expectations. The room, service and ease of planning was outstanding. The owner Eric was so laid back and open to anything we wanted to do. Our experience was so amazing that I brought my husband to Bella Tori for Father's day. I was a little disappointed that the omelette bar was not an option but the overall selection of food was very good. The French toast and eggs Bella Tori are to die for!!!!"

  • "Had a retirement celabration and was very disapointed. 6 out of 4 ordered chicken dishes (High priced) and all were room temp. Service could have been better also, waited a long time for drinks, etc. It almost seemed like our waiter had to much to do and why our food probaly sat until we were served. We spent approx. 290.00 and very disapointed!!!!!!!! I did not want to make a fuss in front of everyone (sending four plates back and have the other two people eat alone)"

  • "We were very disappointed with our dinner last night! We hadn't eaten at Bella Tori in about a year, but always had a nice meal. The service was slow in getting our drinks and meals. The food had very little heat when it was served and was tasteless. We didn't finish our meals. The waiter did not get the hint and just took them away. Didn't even ask to wrap anything up. There is something very different at Bella Tori. The food and service used to be superior."

  • "My husband and I dined at Bella Tori at the Mansion to celebrate my birthday and had a truly enjoyable time. We ordered several appetizers: Bruschetta Alla Bella (very tasty), Rustic Inn Salad, Portabella Mac & Cheese (different and yummy), Crab Bisque (excellent). Entrees: Manzo e Formaggio Ravioli, Almond encrusted Grilled salmon served over wilted spinach in a lemon leek cream sauce (so, so good!). The restaurant is beautiful; it is a mansion with all of the grandeur that implies. The service was excellent. A wonderful guitarist provided live entertainment which complemented our meal. Plenty of free parking."

  • "We visited on a recent Friday night. We enjoyed our meals from the twilight menu. We both ordered the sausage entree and we agreed that it was delicious. I had the gazpacho and it was nicely spiced and outstanding. The salad was also fresh and tasty. We finished our dinner with chocolate cake and carrot cake. Both were yummy! The twilight dinner and BYOB Friday make this a very affordable night out. As an added bonus there is live music with a wonderful classical guitarist."

  • "My niece and nephew from Long Island were in town and I made reservations at Bella Tori. They were quite impressed by the whole experience. The food was delicious and our waiter Michael was great. "
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "The service was excellent. Our waitress was quick and efficient. I never felt hurried. We went here for our 18 year old daughter's birthday. She felt it was fancy enough for her special occasion. I had the salmon and it was cooked just right. The potatoes were creamy and the vegetables still had some life left in them. They had a classical guitar player in the dining room during our meal. We enjoyed the music and it added to the romance. Unfortunately, the table next to us had a group that was drinking. As the evening wore on, they go louder which made others around them get louder so the noise level was a little high for me. That was out of the restaurant's control."

  • "We use to live in Langhorne. We finally got all three sisters together and we celebrated at the Bella Tori. It was absolutely wonderful. It brought back many beautiful memories of the charming town of Langhorne. The restaurant was perfect. We chose the early evening. We had a delicious meal, weren't rushed, were pampered,prices reasonable, servings generous and the atmosphere was very nice. We were all so glad we ate there. As I said, it was perfect and I would recommend the Belle Tori to anyone looking for a special place."

  • "The place has old fashion charm. The drink had a lot of ice in it and was not full but ok. My mother-in-law is a vegetarian and she ordered the cheese ravioli but they brought out meat and she did not know it until she was eating it....ugh An honest mistake but I never ever saw he eat meat so it was weird.

  • "Bella Tori is a beautiful location and has nice ambiance, especially for couples. The service was very good as well. However, the food is only average. The mussels we ordered for appetizer were delicious, but both of our dinner entries were nothing special and not terribly tasty. "

  • "We've been to Bella Tori several times and always enjoy their food. We haven't been there in a while and were surprised to see that they cut their menu down significantly. They increased their appetizer offerings (one full page) but decreased their entrees (also one page). We ordered the chicken w/white wine, artichokes, etc and the Veal Parm (called by another name). Both were good, the veal better than the chicken dish. Appetizer was a scallop inside a risotto ball. Yummy. Dessert selection could definitely be improved. We'll be back for sure. It was just a disappointment with the lesser menu."

  • "Visited the restaurant with my wife for an anniversary dinner. We were greeted by a very casually dressed hostess with the question, "Do you guys have a reservation?" "O.K. you guys can follow me". After being seated, the waiter asked, "Would you guys like to order a drink/". Seems to be the policy of the restaurant to have no respect for their patrons. Service was O.K., food was fine, except my wife's meal was different from the menu description, and my chicken saltimbocca was cold inside, as if it came from the freezer to broiler. I had to ask for a beverage twice, and the waiter actually commented that I did not order it the first time. As we departed, the hostess said "Thanks, guys!""
