Italian Village in Roscoe Village
We found Italy in Roscoe Village. An authentic menu with authentic preparations brought us back to the tastes of our trip last year to Italy. Perhaps the best linguine with clams ever, and their simple tomato cream sauce with fusilli, sausage and peas made my mouth so happy. Excellent Caesar salad, but ask for it without croutons, as they take up way too much of the salad space--and big enough to easily split. Crispy thin pizza with just the right amount of sauce. Dough-ey little garlic rolls and crispy bread to start made this meal wonderful from start to finish. Great waiter, too, made it all perfect. This was our first time here, but not the last.

grad night dinner
Every thing was great. Nice wine, great food. The Steak was mouth watering. The teramisu cake was home made and the best! I was disapointed when I mentioned it was my sons high school graduation but they forgot to put a candle in the cake. I reminded them and they got one. I would go back for sure.

My wife and I recently started
My wife and I recently started dining here and it has become a weekly dining spot for us. The food is very good and the service is off the charts! If you try the restaurant ask for Lupe or Solomon, they really take care of you...

Great Roscoe Village Gem
Piazza Bella has consistently good food and service. If there is one drawback I would say the wine list is a bit small but certainly enough there to work with.

I can always count on a great meal and it once again did not disappoint.
Brought some friends from out of town and they loved the meatballs!!

Delicious food, OK service
Our waitress totally made up for the sub-par service we received when we arrived and were left to clog the doorway while we were forgotten about. Other servers were brushing past us, but our server came over and made sure we got a table and then offered us free Lemoncello shots when our food was late.
Great food, great experience overall because of our server - she was great!

Great Neighborhood Place
This was my second time dining here and it was very good both times. The food was fresh and the menu is pretty extensive so everyone in your group will be able to find someting that interests them. We were looking forward to trying the goat cheese appetizer for the first time but were a little disappointed to find out that they had run out (it's very popular here I've heard). I will be back again to see if I can try it sometime. We went at peak time on a Saturday so it was very noisy but part of that was because we had a table in the bar side of the restaurant. The setting is pretty nice and romantic but it was a bit cramped (again, we did go during peak time on a Saturday night so it was a bit expected). I will definately be back again.

Fresh Italian Food
I love Piazza Bella (and it's not my first time going there). Every dish was fresh and wonderful. I love their olive oil and breads, and the wine was great too. i highly recommend the gnochetti, but everyone was happy with their choices. With a huge menu, it's a great spot for even the pickiest of eaters. It's solid, dependable, and always a good experience, and while it may not be as extraordinary as say, Boka or Sable, Italian food done right is always a wonderful thing.

We went to this restaurant as it was recommended by a friend. The food was good. My husband enjoyed his Chicken Marsala. I got the filet, which was a little overcooked (I ordered medium rare- it was more medium). It was very tasty though, as was the asparagus, and risotto cake that came with it. Sadly, we had no room left for dessert :)
