There was a private party in the main restaurant area so we sat in the busy pizzeria section. Food for good, service was trying to keep up but really nice and friendly. BYOB is great
Food is very good. Been twice and enjoyed it both times. Servers are very attentive though restaurant was not very crowded. BYO wine is a plus. Will go back again.
Great value , byob , best brick oven pizza around!
Great food, brick oven margarita pizza is perfection ! Entrees are generous portions , great value byob
Has everything from pizza's to steaks - most of the time food is excellent
Our waiter was exceptional. We loved the chef's generous use of garlic in the shrimp arrabiata and in the orichiette with hot sausage and broccoli rabe. My wife liked the bolognese but had hoped for a better ricotta. We would go back and try other dishes.
Went here for to celebrate Father's Day with my family, service was great and the food was excellent
Authentic Italian menu. Everyone in our party of 6 enjoyed their food. Nice atmosphere. BYOB. The only downside was a large party (10+) behind us was on the noisier side. Nothing you can do about that.
First time at Bella Gente. Very quiet for a Saturday night. Staff is very attentive.
Nice menu with all the favorite Italian selections. Food quality is very good. Will go back.
Bella Gente is an excellent restaurant with a very nice range of choices on the menu. Also, it's an excellent value!! We always have a great meal at Bella Gente!
The meal was delicious as always. The fact we had to seat in the pizzeria (casual area as they call it) instead of dining room was not great. But there was a private party in dining area.
The service was not really up to par. We had to keep asking for things. Wine glasses, silverware, dessert fork. You could tell she was either new or not interested.
Our waitress was very nice but he place was understaffed. Poor management is the pitfall. Food was okay. For an Italian restaurant, it is surprising that they ran out of bread!
Bella Gente pizza is certainly one of the best in the area.
I was surprised that other than the table I was at, there was only one other table occupied. We were there for 4 hours, and no one else came in to dine.
Everything was fine and people were kind only problem was that our server completely forgot to put in an order and he tried to correct it but it was awkward and too late so we just split our meals instead. I thought for their mistake they should've offered a free dessert or something...but they didn't.
We went on Mother's Day....We have been here several times....the food is excellent and so was the service
Pizza was great and so was the salad. Other food was average at best.
Service was below average. Waitress would disappear for long periods. Also, charged us for ice tea refills on our bill but did not tell is she would do that during the meal. Much better Italian options in the area.
The prices are very reasonable & the food was really pretty good. It's a shame the service was so bad. Hadn't been here since they were located further down Bloomfield Avenue (maybe different owner's? Not sure). The new location is not an improvement. The room could use a renovation. Anyway, waitress was very nice but had (obviously) just returned from her cigarette break. The (I believe) manager took over from her but he wasn't an improvement. He was apologizing all over the room for the kitchen. Maybe that was the problem but 1/2 hour wait for a salad & then another 45 minutes for one entrée to appear & then another 15 minutes for the other entrée is unacceptable. We won't be going back.
We stopped by on a Friday night and the restaurant was half empty. We ordered clams oreganato and soup for appetizers. Dinner was a delicious blackened scallops with risotto and Chicken Marsala. Food was delicious and service very attentive. Prices were expensive for a local restaurant. It is a BYO so be prepared.
The waitress was very nice and friendly. She read us all of the specials and answered any questions we had. The food was good. We were there towards the end of the night when they were closing and they did not rush us out which was nice..
