    We ate outside. It was four of us and a high chair. Thought the table was way too small for four people. Felt very cramped. The food was good but not exceptional

    The food here is wonderful. I had the steak and thought it was an excellent deal for the price. It was cooked exactly as requested. My wife had the crab cakes. She is extremely fussy about crab cakes. These were well seasoned and had no filler. She was well pleased. I had the mussles for my appetizer and they were a generous portion and they were tasty. We split the nuttela crepes fro dessert and it was more than enough between us. Service was excellent.

    My husband and I have been to Bella multiple times this summer and consider it one of our top 3 places to eat in the area. The servers have been consistently friendly and attentive. The food is great (I recommend saving room for dessert)! We sat outside every time -which was great- and want to note that the inside can be a bit noisy. With saying that, I still plan on coming back over the cooler months. Highly recommend trying this place in the fall!

    1st time at this restaurant. We were a party of 4 and dis the tasting menu. We each ended up with a different dish for each of 4 courses, so basically ate family style. Main dishes included veal, sirloin, striped bass and lobster and everything was delicious. Presentation was lovely, portion size enough for sharing, desserts wonderful (esp. The salted caramel creme brûlée!). We were pleased to get a visit from the chef. Service was excellent. My only regret is that since we decided on the tasting menu fairly quickly we never heard the specials.

    Had dinner with our family (teenage kids) on a Friday evening. Food and wine choices were fantastic and all of our meals were presented in very nice style. Couldn't decide between two wines so waitress let us sample both before choosing. Nice touch! Nice outside patio dining is available, if you would like something a bit quieter. Inside, the dining is in the bar area and a band was playing in the downstairs area. That said, inside dining was a bit noisy, but not over done. Lots of patrons showing up to hear the 60's and 70's music (mostly 40 and up).

    Always surprised how good the meat eat - should add more cuts to the menu. Wife had excellent NY strip and I had the mixed grill with a perfectly cooked petite filet, incredibly tender free range chicken, and lamb sausages that were the surprising highlight to the meal.

    Our food and service were excellent. Came to Bella Rosy for our Anniversay. Meal cost $148 plus a $30 tip - $178 total. While delicious - we would not routinely spend $178 for a dinner. We come to Hotel Fieosle for special occasions only because of the cost. I wish everything wasn't ala carte.

    We went to Bella Rosa for my husband's birthday. We took both sets of our parents with us, as well as our infant. I gave them a heads up that we were bringing our baby in a car seat. They sat us at a table for 7 instead of 6 so that we had room for the car seat, which was very nice. Everyone raved about their meals. Their service was great. The homemade sea salted caramel gelato was a hit. We will definitely go back!

    I have eaten here multiple times and am always impressed with how they are able to consistently produce unbelievable food and a stellar dining experience each and every time I am there. This most current review is based on a recent work dinner I had there for the owner of our company, our national sales manager, two senior-level sales reps and two new reps from other areas of the country. I knew this was the place to bring the big bosses to impress them with an unbelievable dining experience without the hassle of going into the city. I got a lot of compliments for the choice of venue and they will be dining at Hotel Fiesole again. I thank the management and staff for another excellent experience.

    Husband and I popped in for dinner when son was out with grandparent. I was able to book reservation only 20 min before seating time on Open Table so it was really convenient for a last minute decision to go out to dinner. Food was delicious and consistent with past experiences. Ambiance is comfortable and pub like with bar nearby. Filet was perfect, tiramisu was a delight. I always recommend this restaurant to friends. We were here with a larger group, including kids, 2 weeks prior and everyone enjoyed their meal. Great specials.

    Had a great meal at Bella Rosa the other night. The stuffed calamari rivaled the dishes I had in Italy and the gnocchi were light and tender. Best of all were the fabulous way they do beans. Tender white beans full of seasoning flavor and roasted peppers, tomatoes and artichoke hearts. To die for!

    Bruschetta was great, crab cake on vegetables excellent, pasta was shrimp not so great. This is a perfect spot for lunch. Beautifully decorated, warm woods and colors. Perfect also for a special occasion as our lunch was. Service good. I asked for a substitute sauce on my pasta and shrimp instead of the cream sauce. Pesto way overpowering and shrimp small and few in number-5. Otherwise we all had a lovely lunch and we were not rushed.

    My wife and I met a friend who was in town for business for dinner and had a great time. The ambiance is very pleasant. Being attached to a hotel the resteraunt has an upscale air to it. There is a large bar within the resteraunt and gives a cafe or pub feel to the place. Service was good. The food was very good. I had pork chops, my wife sea bass and our frined the crab cakes. All werre very well prepared.
