Excellent food - very large
Excellent food - very large portions (we split an entree and couldn't eat all of it plus a salad). Excellent service - very noisy, but that was the only "downer". We'll return.

Mom, are you in the kitchen?
I could have licked the bowl from my linguini carbonara. Yum! Wonderful creamy sauce that did not congeal, break or displease. Absolutely heavenly. Recently moved here from upstate NY, just found my 'go-to' Italian restaurant. Great waitress, made me feel very welcomed. Classic and comfortable atmosphere. This was my first trip, I asked for a taste of the red sauce for future reference. Delicious! Pasta is homemade (a rare treat), not in-house, but homemade. Next trip, got to order the pasta Bolognese...not a gnocchi fan, but they will substitute.

Great Neighborhood Spot
Really nice relaxed feel - like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. There are several dishes I will return to try. Enjoyed the Chicken Francese over sauteed spinach on this visit. Service while very friendly, was off on the pace of the meal. Our party had to ask for several items that should have been automatic such as refilling of beverages, an additional serving of bread and grated cheese after the entrees arrived.

Bella Tuscany - a gem in Windermere
I took my Mom and six of my family members to Bella Tuscany. Bella Tuscany is authentic and excellent! We had the calamari and the clams for an app - both were cooked perfectly. My mom and I had the Veal Florentine- amazing flavor. Enjoy Bella Tuscany...I will certainly be a regular! And I am first generation Italian - so I am very critical of Italian restaurants!

The food was very good and
The food was very good and fresh. The meatball appetizer was juicy and tender. The sauce had just the right kick of spiciness. My wife's chicken was for tender and my pasta was cooked perfectly. The ambience with the subdued lighting was very romantic. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly, but not overly so. We even had a conversation about the advantages of making reservations via open table. We would definitely goback.

Don't pass up the Polenta, it is absolutely the greatest.

Happy Fathers' Day to Me
I had a small taste of Bella Tuscany in December for a work holiday party. I enjoyed the favors of what I had eaten. So we decided to come here for my Fathers Day dinner. I easily made online reservations through their website and even had to change the time twice and there was no issue.
We were greeted nicely and were seated at a nice booth. Our waiter, Matt, was very personable, knowledgeable, and very helpful in choosing our meals to make sure we would be happy.
My little 7 year old daughter really enjoyed her pasta and meatballs and even asked for more meatballs. My wife loved her pasta and clams and prosciutto and melon appetizer. I had the Father's Day t-bone which was average. However, I REALLY enjoyed the mushroom risotto.

Bella Tuscany is a Friday night favorite for us. They are wonderfully accommodating, family friendly, and always go the extra mile with great atmosphere and inventive specials. I recommend looking up their facebook to keep track of the specials.

A Hidden Gem Amongst Theme Parks
I was looking for a great meal for my family that was away from the tourist traps surrounding the theme park area and at a good price. Does such a place exist in Orlando?? The answer is YES. What a great little place...tucked away in a small retail strip mall, Bella Tuscany is a GEM! From the moment we walked in, we felt removed from the strip mall atmosphere and brought right into an Italian kitchen. The smells were amazing, the staff was great and the food...fantastic! We ordered the fried zucchini chip appetizer and calamari. Both were excellent. Kids menu is perfect and very well priced. Had fettuccine carbonara and my wife had the penne vodka. Both were amazing and huge. Had to force myself to finish since we are in hotel. Go enjoy!

Ashley gave us very nice service.
Ashley gave us very nice service. We sat right next to the piano....little too close but really enjoyed his music! That was a nice surprise! Bar was too loud part of the time. Dinner was good and arrived in a timely fashion. A very nice casual evening!

Twice in one week!
We were staying at Disney and were lucky to find this place nearby! Off the beaten path, it is somewhere we hope to return to on our next trip. Only 10 minutes from Disney Contemporary, this place has an awesome Greek salad, and their bread is unbelievably good. I had a carpaccio special that was perfect as well! Great pasta dishes, good drinks and really liked the staff!

Bella Tuscany of Windermere
Bella Tuscany of Windermere is a great place for a family night out. We were a party of 5 and Charlie was our server. She was very friendly and answered ALL the questions we had about the food AND entertainment. We had the Linguini with clams, Chicken Marsala and Chicken Francese. All the pasta was made fresh and everything was delicious. A guitar player was there to provide a beautiful atmosphere. We look forward to going there again.

A great first experience!
My husband and I really enjoyed our first visit to Bella Tuscany. Food was delicious and service from Charlee was great. Heidi, the co-owner visited our table a couple of times to make sure that we were pleased with everything. My husband ordered the duck special and I had the land and sea special, which included lamb chops, calamari, and shrimp. Everything served was fresh and expertly prepared. We will definitely go back soon. It is a real treat to have a neighborhood restaurant with the quality and service here. Other neighborhood restaurants should take a lesson from this one.

Lovely restaurant.. Live music in the evenings, decorated nicely. I would definately go back!

We went there for my birthday.
We went there for my birthday. All four of us had something different and we all enjoyed our food very much.
Our waiter was exceptional and the entertainment that evening was also very good. Not too loud or annoying. Just perfect!
We were able to hear ourselves talk, which is always a plus!!
Definitely would recommend this place :)

A Great Find
Bella Tuscany has been open for one year. The food is fresh and delicious. The staff is well-trained and attentive. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. Love this place! We haven't enjoyed the outdoor area yet, with live music, because its been far too hot, but when the temps drop a bit, I know that will be a perfect spot to sit and enjoy music with dinner.

Great Neighborhood Find!
Having just moved to the area we were delighted to find a good italian place with reasonable prices and great tasting food. They have live music on specific evenings (you'd need to check) and the pizza was fantastic. Looking forward to going back and trying their pasta dishes. Also, kids eat free on Wednesdays which was a great bonus for us.

Bella Bella Tuscany
Just returned home from a great golf trip to the Orlando area. My foursome enjoys good food and wine while on these trips, so we tried Bella Tuscany. This is near disney but not in a tourist area. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. The menu was varied with Italian favorites and many specialties. The veal was excellent, with several choices of dishes available. The pasta was very good as well as the appetizers.
The owner stopped by the table and spent several minutes with us. The staff was very attentive and we definitely enjoyed the meal.
Two nights later we went back for just pizza and drinks. Similar service and and the pizza was great. I would definitely recommend Bella Tuscany
