Bella Monte is always good. Love the piano and drum duo -- such an elegant throwback! My husband's sausage lasagna was particularly tasty. We visited the Saturday night before New Year's - such a nice mix of families, couples, and group celebrations. They have a HUGE wine shop on one end of the restaurant with a cool bar surrounded by comfy sofas which gave that area an intimate and romantic vibe.

Lovely atmosphere, especially when piano player is present. Wine list exceptional. Ordered the special Wednesday steak night special which includes choice of potato, salad and glass of wine for $24, not bad. Highly recommend the tomato Gorgonzola dressing for salad. Food was good but noticed the salad choices at dinner have changed. Coconut cake is still delicious. Overall, food was good but our server was a little distant, she offered bread but didn't take our drink order until 15 minutes later. Highly recommend they choose a better choice of bread such as crusty loaf unlike the bland bread they offer, but overall will come back again.

We were looking for a quick dinner with friends. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. My husband browsed in their wine section and bought two to drink with dinner and one to take home. There were four of us and everyone was very pleased with the presentation and taste of their dinner. My husband and I would like to go back to experience the wine tasting in the wine room.

Our experience left much to be desired. I prefer the Bella Monte from when the Tuites owned it. Our appetizer came out cold and the entrees were just "so so."
