The memorable Northern Italian Cuisine makes this Upper East Side restaurant special. The Spaghetti Lobster is the classic signature dish of this Mediterranean treasure. The Wine Spectator awarded extensive and serious wine menu is carefully selected by owner Enrico Proietti. Very often a private wine tasting is happening at the corner table
making the wine list more notable every season. The one of a kind brick oven offers a variety of dishes, exceptional pizza and foccacina rabbiola that is hard to find in this city. For something sweeter-the deserts are impressive! The atmosphere is charming in this power playing neighborhood.

Three of us went for early dinner to celebrate the holidays. We were given a nice table along the wall, and the service was professional. We each had a pasta dish, as they are prepared in the restaurant and delicious. Especially the gnocci. Although I didn't have it last night, their sword fish is excellent.

Totally overpriced for the quality of the food: upscale pricing for mediocre (at best) food. Service vacillates between annoyingly ingratiating and inattentiveness.

Bella Blu is great for convenience; it's in our neighborhood. The food is better than average, some dishes better than others. Their grilled shrimp, their swordfish, are both delicious. Special pasta dishes are great, and their gnocci is very light. Tables are too close together, unfortunately, so that at busy times, you are practically sitting on top of the person at the table next to you!
