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

  • "Went for the first time, to celebrate a birthday. Only 2 of us so we were able to bring a small cake. The server was wonderful. The food was fabulous, and the guitar music was beautiful. We will definitely go back time and time again."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Three friends on our first visit to this charming restaurant on a Friday night in June. The ambiance was lovely. 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."

  • "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."

  • "My husband and had a wondeful server named Joan. She was extremely accommadating. We ordered crab cakes and the seared tuna special. It was amazing. The crabcakes were the best tasting crab cakes we had ever had and the seared tuna was perfect and delicious. We truly enjoyed ourselves and would recomment Bella Tori 100 percent!"

  • "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!""

  • "We purchased a LivingSocial voucher for this restaurant. For us,it's a wonderful way to discover new places, at a nice discount. We were seated immediately and found olives on our table. Within minutes, a very nice waiter came over and took our beverage order. My wine and a bottle of nice cold water came out immediately. Shortly after, we received a nice basket of bread and butter. Hubby and I both ordered the sword fish, with mixed veggies and mashed potatoes. It was absolutely delicious! We opted against dessert. I never even looked at the dessert menu, didn't want the temptation. Overall, it was an wondeful experience. GO THERE, YOU WON'T REGRET IT~ "

  • "My husband and I went to Bella Tori for dinner on a Friday evening. We were seated right away, and our server Brian came over promptly to take our drink order and tell us a bit about the menu. The mark up for a bottle of wine is very reasonable here, and there are several good bottles of Italian reds and other international wines that are available. Our server's meal recommendations were helpful and the service was attentive throughout the meal! The fried ricotta scallop appetizer reminded me of upscale comfort food--delicious! My husband's entree was the Osso Bucco, which was tender and came with root vegetables in a savory brown gravy. The almond tiramisu was light and the perfect end note to a great meal in a beautiful setting!"
