    My girlfriend and I went here for an evening dinner on a Monday for our anniversary. First, it was one of only a scant few restaurants open in Haddonfield on Mondays, so that was a plus. The service was excellent, with just the right amount of checking up and our server offering to take pictures and suggesting ways to commemorate the occasion. The food was not the best we've had, but was very good and was fairly priced (a rare thing in Haddonfield). Overall, it was a good night out and we'll be back.

Everyone enjoyed their meals! I had chicken parmasean - I loved the sauce. My sister had cappalleni with a vodka sauce and crap meat - oh my!!!!

    My husband and I enjoyed a delicious anniversary meal at Casa Bella Trattoria last Tuesday night. It was not very crowded, but there was only one server. I think she worked very hard serving people inside and outside. I counted 10 parties there in the time that we were dining! The food was very good and the portions were ample. We liked our beet salad appetizer and chicken entrees :) We would definitely visit there again!

    We had a group of 8 women for lunch. Table was ready on time and the waitress couldn't have been nicer. The chicken salad over greens was delicious, and the chocolate chip cheesecake was wonderful. However O wouldn't recommend the sweet potato fries. They were a bit greasy and limp. I like mine very crispy. Overall a great experience.

    We had the "restaurant week" special, which included app, salad, entree, and dessert for 24.95! The food was great, highlighted by the eggplant rollatine app. Which was delicious; thin sliced eggplant rolled around excellent cheese and a nice sauce- would definitely recommend! The service was friendly and attentive, and the owners are on site and personally welcome diners to their establishment. Parking is nearby, and plentiful in public lot.the room decor is straight trattoria; pleasant, but can be loud depending on the size of the tables dining. I would definitely recommend CAsa Bella!

    I purchased a living social deal so we tried out Casa Bella. Judy, our waitress, was excellent! Made us feel very comfortable and at home. We started with sharing the Broccoli soup and caesar salad. Soup was good, salad was fair. I had a baby shrimp and cavatelli special which was small and fair - I didn't care for the taste/broth it was prepared in. My boyfriend had one of the chicken dishes, which he enjoyed. We saw zeppoli's being prepared for another table, and being originally from NY, we had to try them. They were EXCELLENT!!!! I would go back just for them!! Generous serving and brought some home to my son, who enjoyed them even though they were cold by then.

    There are a lot of Italian restaurants in the area so if would take something special to get 4-5 stars and Casa Bella was nothing special. I had penne vodka w homemade meatballs (on the side... They couldn't figure out how to make then let of my meal ON my sauce so I had them in a marinara sauce but my pasta in vodka sauce!) meatballs were decent- three very large sized. Penne/sauce was tasteless. My MIL had a BLT that again was 'normal' and fries were gross. Also the staff stood right behind our table arguing every time a new customer walked in who was going to get that table- very rude.

    First of all it's a great dining experience. The owner is very active in the overall operation of his restaurant. He personally makes sure that everything is to your liking. The food here is great. Very fresh and tasty. There are always terrific specials. The wait staff is well trained, very attentive but not over whelming. Always a great meal.

    We went to Casa for a birthday dinner. The staff welcomed us from the moment we arrived. Our waitress was always available and our water glasses were always full. Some diners opted for the Special since it was before 6:30 and had a four course meal for $20. All of the food was delicious, which is saying a lot coming from an Italian family. The staff cut and served our cake for us! They gave us plenty of time and there was no up-selling. Thank you, Casa Bella! Keep up the great service. I recommend this place to anyone looking for good food and great customer service.

    We were looking for a nice Italian Restaurant for my Graduation dinner. There were 8 of us and I was weary as we chose Casa Bella offline strictly based on other customer ratings. It exceeded all of our expectations. The food and service was amazing. Everything was delicious and my entire family was raving about their dinners.

    I made a reservation for Mothers Day 2 weeks in advance. I went over the menu to make sure everyone in the family would be happy with the food selection and the price. When we arrived that night we were given a much smaller menu with prices that were $2-$5 more than the menu on open table. When I asked the manager about this change and expressed my concern that the food we had hoped to purchase was unavailable I was told that those items were not available for this special occasion. When I asked why the prices were raised she said that they were "larger portions". I truly do not understand why on a night that is about celebrating Mothers hard work we were price gouged. I will not be returning.

    My family (8 of us) went here for mother's day - our table was not ready, we waited 20 minutes for the table, then waited another 10 minutes for our order to be taken. Everything here is a la carte, so a salad is $10 extra on top of the price of the entree, yet the waitress would ask soup or salad so you felt like it was included. One meal came out wrong (was ordered to come with broccoli in place of pasta due to gluten allergy) and another meal did not come out and was not noticed by the staff at all, we had to tell them. Our food was excellent despite the delays and we would go back again just not on a "holiday" weekend.

    I had chicken with sun dried tomato and my husband had chicken with crab and asparagus. Both were good dishes but neither was unique. We have found similar and equally good dishes at a number of good restaurants. The service was outstanding. I am on a diet. They met my needs by serving my chicken over spinach, rather than pasta. The servers were very attentive, topping off our glasses many times and offering more rolls, etc.

    The special with risotto and mussels was $25.00. There was 6 mussels and the appearance of 2-3 scoops of risotto. Seems overprice for so little. It was well prepared and flavorful. The regular menu has more substantial portions and more reasonable priced.

    We chose the early bird special. Portions were small but food was fresh. Service was slow until we told them we needed to get out by a certain time to see a show; they did apologize and sped things up and got us out of there on time which we appreciated. Not sure if I'd go back. Lot's of competing Italian restaurants in the area that do a better job.

    Food and service was amazing. We dined during SJ Hot Chefs week. The portions were definitely smaller than normal (we have eaten here before). My husband got the eggplant rollitini as an appetizer, and it was literally 1 very small piece of eggplant barely filled and smothered in sauce and cheese. We were actually laughing after they brought it out. But, the tiny thing was tasty! My portions were fine - I had mussels as an app and veal parmesan. My husbands penne siciliano seemed more like a lunch portion. He left a bit hungry. But, like I said, the food tasted wonderful, and the service was great. And it was one of the lesser expensive restaurant choices ($24.95 pp).

The service was very good with the owner making sure that we had enough to eat as well as pouring our wine. This is a BYOB and we have come to the conclusion that we will once again visit this very fine food establishment.

    Visited on a Friday night. It was not busy at all which surprised us. We were seated in a very nice window seat looking onto Haddonfield Main street. Service was efficient and friendly. Received bread and had bottle of wine opened quickly and poured before we even got seated. Ran into friends. The Eggplant Roletini app was excellent. We had the salmon entree and the Shrimp Francese. Both were very good. The Caesar salad we both ordered was good, not great. My new irritation is restaurants that charge you for a full salad when you upgrade to Caesar salad. This salad was not worthy of that price hike and I would not order it next time. Our overall experience was very good and we will return. Very nice family run restaurant. Owner is very nice
