As always, the entire crew was excellent. Tonight we had the pleasure of having Julie as our server and she is always amazing.

Professional, happy, knowledgeable and attuned to the needs of her customers like no other. She is also one their phenomenal bartenders too when CV19 isn't around!

The Grilled Octopus was just like you get in Santorini and I just had some of the Bolognese this afternoon for lunch. I am ready to go back right now!

We celebrated a birthday at lunch. Our server was terrific and she made good dining recommendations. My yellow fin salad was delicious. My friend enjoyed the bacon wrapped scallops.

Tony, Chris and the entire Bella Monte Team are always professional, polite and accommodating. Amanda, Julie know their clients so well, they could easily have the appetizers and drinks ready when you walk in and almost on the table before you sit down! The menu has the tried and true favorites as well as various featured selections based on fresh local ingredients. If you are looking for great Italian, Seafood, Specialties or Amazing Pizza, you will be pleased with any dish on the menu.

Going to Bella Monte was an absolute breath of fresh air (and great food and atmosphere).

Many, many times we'll try a new place (to us), and the consensus will be an "OK, but I don't feel the need to go back there anytime soon." or "We could do the same thing in our kitchen."

Anyway, this was not the case with Bella Monte. The food, service, and atmosphere were all wonderful.

The Bella Monte staff will definitely being see us again.

The fried oyster appetizer is out-of-this-world fantastic! It was so good . . . we both ordered it again for our lunch entree.
Our server could not have more professional, courteous and knowledgeable of the menu. He answered all of our questions, gave several suggestions and took great care of us.
We will certainly return and recommend it to friends.

I always have a great experience at Bella Monte- the food is consistently wonderful and the staff and ambiance is lovely. I sat on the patio and enjoyed a beautiful night with friends, comfortable temps due to the extra heater that was warm and added even more ambiance since we chose to not sit at at the fire pit table. If you haven’t eaten here, you’re missing out. Wonderful wine selection too!!!
