Superb. Julie served with her usual efficiency, charm, and panache. Salmon tasted exquisite. We will sorely miss its passing.

we have been to Bella Monte many times and have always had stellar service and meals... The restaurant was not very busy yet we were seated right next to a table of four and later a table of six, which hindered conversation a bit. Our server was polite but I felt she was either burnt out or simply did not want to be there. We stayed chatting (there were at least 2 other tables still there, and our server basically left us alone without refilling water glasses once we had paid the bill. I had to flag down the table of 6 's server for some water.... I love Bella Monte but felt this was not like our previous experiences.

Bella Monte never disappoints. Food was excellent. The soft shells were great! Just wish things were back to pre-covid normal. They close down the kitchen on Sundays around 8PM. Didn't feel rushed, but would have liked a little more time to get our orders in and relax and dine. The staff and servers never disappoint!

We celebrated a birthday and it was all amazing. The service was the best I've had in years. The food was all delicious. We had arugula , and lasagnas and clam linguini and the salmon. All of it was delicious.

fantastic service & delicious meals... my favorite lasagne of any Italian restaurant in the 757 - perhaps beyond. hubby had the chicken marsala and said it was very good which means it was great. friends were very happy too.

I love this place and like their different menu offerings. If you haven’t tried the fried olives, they are lovely. My fish dinner was not as flavorful as I would have liked but lots of care in put into the food and whole experience.

Outstanding service and food. My only complaint was that the pasta was a little overdone but fine for American standards. For the price it was outstanding and a great value for money.

Once again we enjoyed a delicious dinner at Bella Monte! The escargot Provençal and pan roasted cherry stone clams were the best we’ve experienced in Virginia Beach. The service was terrific.

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!

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.
