We love this restaurant...and keep coming back. Food never disappoints and service great
Best Pasta dishes! Everything from minnestrone to deserts is excellent. One of the best!
Always good wait staff too....
Best Pasta and many other things perfectly prepared....A good staff too.
You have to experience this gem on the Upper East Side. I have been there three times now and look forward to going again very soon. The restaurant is intimate and the wait staff is very friendly and attentive. But what truly sets this restaurant apart is the food. I highly recommend the salad with hearts of palm and the burrata appetizer. Their wood fired pizza also makes an excellent starter to share with a group. You can’t go wrong trying one of the specials for the main course. Their pasta and seafood is top notch. The flavors are consistently excellent, the portions are generous, and everything is well priced. You will not be disappointed!
Probably the worst food I have had in a long time. I asked for my Chilean sea bass to be well done and was served raw. My friend had tuna that was tasteless and was more like cardboard and sent his tuna back. My sister’s baby chicken was poorly cooked, poorly seasoned and had to be left over. Although the service was ok, the food was certainly of poor quality, poor presentation and over priced. A small under cooked piece of sea bass was atop some beans and nothing more for $36. Certainly no value here.i would definitely not recommend this place.
This is convenient to where I work and there isn't much choice in the neighborhood. I think the food is good. Not outstanding. But good. I'd never eat here if it weren't convenient. Service is good, though sometimes inattentive. When full, which it often is at dinner, it is very noisy.
Always enjoy Bella Blu but it is very noisy. Chopped Salad was delicious pasta ala dente was perfect. We sat for hours and they did not rush us.
A great neighborhood restaurant. Always reliable and consistently good food and service.
Good service and good food. High noise level though and tables close together
Wonderful dinner with friends - we were seated on time and did not feel rushed. Great food and service. The branzino was delicious!
The eggplant parma was delicious.
We also had the lobster salad which was perfect
We love the wine selection and the fresh fish is always delicious
The lobster fra diavolo is perfection
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.
We go to Bella Blu all the time as a local restaurant but went for New Year’s Eve and thiught they did a fabulous job, regular menu but they had decorations New Year’s Eve hats etc and each table was given s bottle of perseco we had a really fun time, crowd was lively and food was great as usual ineiuld def hi back next year snd will continue to go throughout the year also staff was terrific
One of our favorite restaurants! Great food, great ambiance and adorable staff!
Totally overpriced for the quality of the food: upscale pricing for mediocre (at best) food. Service vacillates between annoyingly ingratiating and inattentiveness.
