    I was surprised to be the only one inside ( outside on the patio ) of this place i had lunch... I enjoyed an appetizer AND a salad that arrived at the SAME time... ( first mistake ) The waiter was friendly, and a connection was made... even though he was from OSU territory and i from U of M... however, i made a comment that the kitchen was quick... ( and i was the only one there ) and that didnt slow the pace of the food arriving. I asked for the Pasta to be "light" with the sauce... and if that was light... i wouldnt want to see normal... Before i had completed my salad ( and appetizer at the same time... my entree arrived, and sat until i was ready to consume it... Cold... not sure why i received attention from the kitchen...

    We've eaten here several times and the food never disappoints. They're fetucchini alfredo is amazing but be forewarned, it's very calorific - lots of butter and cream! The gnocci is also excellent. Even the kid's meals are good. Every time we've eaten there they've had live music, usually 1 or 2 singers with a guitar. Definitely a great place to eat!

    Classic Italian dishes done with a little twist. That is what I found at Bella Tuscany. The Shrimp Scampi and the Veal Francese were just a little different than I am used to and I loved it. The small pizza was very good and I look forward to trying one of the larger ones. I am returning tonight to hear Scott Berry play the piano and sing some favorites and I plan on trying some new dishes while I am at it.

    We love this place and come as often as we can. The Polenta is to die for as are the Wasabi Fried Oysters (a new menu item). The service is friendly and attentive. They offer live music played at a level that your table can still hold a conversation and not have to shout (a great mix of jazz artists, guitar, local singers). We take all of our friends here.

    The food was outstanding, service ok, but the noise level was loud. There was a guitar player who was good but, not necessary. The food was outstanding that wiould bring in a crowd on it's own merits. The music combined with a the bar filled with customers, made the noise level too high to fully enjoy dining there with friends.

    Made a 645 reservation for NY Eve. Had requested a booth.Arrived at 630 and asked for a booth.Hostess said oh no we are completely booked very curtly. we got seated near a large table with crying kids running around We waited 10 minutes to be greeted by a harried server and we proceeded to order bottle of wine.He mumbled keep your fingers crossed , it is popular and we may not have it! The food was good no cheese or water refills nor salad offered.We asked our server who she as he told us she was the owner...... he agreed with us that he could't give good service. The owner tried to seat a couple at the table across but they wanted a booth and were told to wait . Well he did not offer dessert or coffee so we got our check and left

    We went for dinner on New Years Eve and it was as good as expected. I had the lobster thermador and my husband had the ribeye steak, both of which were specials and excellent. We are becoming regulars at Bella Tuscany because they never disappoint. Their specials are always inviting and the presentation of all the dishes is beautiful. Our server, Adrian, is knowledgeable about the dishes, friendly and attentive.

    Dined on 12/24/2013
    Bella Tuscany has had consistently good reviews and they lived up to their reputation on Christmas eve with both their full menu and the fixed price (or a la carte) Feast of the Seven Fishes. The 5-course menu included generous servings of Lobster Bisque, Scallops, a seafood linguini course with mussels, clams and calamari, a main course of Mahi and super sweet Lobster Tail. Bella finished the evening with Tiramisu and the creativity, presentation and preparation were all right on. As usual, service was knowledgeable and attentive. Bella Tuscany's regular menu and service are always a favorite and the restaurant showed that it can do a special occasion themed meal to the same standard.

    The Feast of the Seven Fishes was 5 wonderful courses. From the Lobster Bisque, the Prosciutto wraped Scallops with creme fresh and caviar, the Pasta with Seafood, the Mixed Grill (Lobster Tail and Mahi Mahi) and finish with Tiramisu. All the courses were at room temperature and not hot or warm. Very disappointed. We didn't want to complain over each course and completely ruin the entire evening.

    This was a nice break from the chain Italian. Meals were tasty and overall good value. I felt the portions were somewhat smaller than I expected but the quality made up for it. Service was good and the restaurant was quiet and nicely decorated. Wine and bar selection was nice although wines seemed overpriced. I would definitely go back again. It is a nice change from out usually places.

    We arrived at 7 and were sat immediately. We didn't need the reservation we made. The server was very friendly and took our drink orders. We ordered salads and an appetizer of fried mozzarella. After about 10 minutes a family of 5 was sat next to us. Our server offered to refill our drinks and another at minutes passed before we got our salads and appetizer. The family behind us that were sat after us got their meal before us and we didn't got ours until nearly 815. All of the ice melted in our drinks and we rarely saw our server, who never made mention of how long food was taking until we asked if everything was ok. My wife thought the sauce was a little spicy and her spaghetti had so much thin sauce it was like tomato soup.

    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

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 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.

    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.

If the restaurant realizes that Friday is busy, then hire more people. AND, the Chardonnay was served WARM!!!. Overall, the evening was unpleasant.
