Service was very slow to get our food. The toast that came with the meatball appetizer was burnt. The ambiance was okay except for the dishes that had dropped and broken in the next dining area. Overall, it was just okay.

I love Bella Notte. Service is always good and food is usually great. Tonight, however was an exception. Food was slow getting to us. Seafood linguine was very good, but lasagna was cold and pizza was burnt.

The ambiance and service were great, and we were seated distanced from others which was ideal.The food however was not as good this time as I had experienced from Bella Notte in the past, just a little bland. Maybe a different day would have been a completely different experience.

Our waiter was not timely, organized or interested in being there. We were celebrating our daughters birthday, had made a reservation in advance & called ahead to confirm & request a dessert for the occasion. It took a while for him to acknowledge us, we needed to ask for another place setting since the table was short and asked for dirty plates to be cleared in between courses. He brought bread but no olive oil or butter. Finally after repeatedly asking he brought the oil but no butter. The food did come out at the same time. It was ok but not great. Then without clearing any dinner dishes or even asking he presented the check! ! My husband asked for the dessert menu for guests & the special birthday cake & was told they were closed! Are you kidding me??? My husband at least got him to bring out a piece of tiramisu so we could sing. Needless to say we were extremely disappointed in Bella Notte. They failed at all things that evening from service, food , to hospitality. Will not be on our list to revisit.

Food and service were great. It took a long time to get our food though. Woodfire ovens cook fast so I felt like the wait time was excessive.

We arrived slightly early but they were prepared and took us straight to the table. Our drinks came quickly and the service was prompt and attentive. The meal was great and everyone ordered slightly different items but all arrived perfectly prepared. Over a great night out especially considering the pandemic situation.

Seated on time. Good service. Music nice. We tried a special with beef which was very tasty, though two of my bites were "fatty chewy" and had to spit out!

We requested table next to fireplace , not near. Called prior to confirm and confirmed that space. We were in same room, not next to.

Everyone got their food and 20 minutes later I got my Alfredo and my sons pizza that was inedible.

Manager asked for free dessert. We said no. He took some off the bill, but tried to bill us for shrimp they replaced because being cold.

We celebrated my husband’s birthday tonight- it was probably the 8th time we’ve dined here. This was probably the best experiences we’ve had at BN. Our food was fabulous and our server, Caitlyn, was so sweet and attentive! Highly recommend!

We were having an adult only dinner and we were sat right next to a large table with 5-6 kids that were all watching their tablets extremely loud. I know this is not the restaurants fault, but it was disappointing to not have a quiet dinner out.

The food was amazing as always and service was top notch. Server was very knowledgeable about menu. We will definitely return.

This was our second time to dine at Bella Notte, and it was better than the first! One of the reasons we had such a good time was our server Lauren "Sweet D". She was very friendly, and made some recommendations that were spot on for us. We will definitely return to this wonderful restaurant, and ask to be seated in her section. Thanks for a great evening!

We always enjoy a visit to Bella Notte, especially for the seasonal menu. We were seated on time. Was a good experience for most, with the exception being a Filet Mignon being under cooked, and mashed potatoes very salty. Ordered the filet medium, but arrived very rare. Even after a refire, still didn't reach medium. Service was still attentive. Overall, a B+.

Weekend visit from Barboursville WV to visit my travel nurse sister. I LOVE Bella Notte. I have visited her often and tried many restaurants HOWEVER Bella Notte has remained my favorite!! Our 2/16 dinner was exceptional and our waiter Jordyn fulfilled all of our needs. Even though my sisters assignment is coming to an end in March, Lexington has become one of my favorite cities and I will continue to visit! You will be my first restaurant every return.

I wouldn’t recommend going there on Valentine’s Day. We sat on the porch and froze! Service was terrible. Had to ask for bread, grated cheese, and black pepper. Those are supposed to be offered at an Italian restaurant. Cocktails and wine were good. Took 30 minutes to get a glass of water. Our individual food dishes came out at different times, so by the time everyone received their food, those who had their food first was now cold. Serviced warm coffee in a cold mug, so coffee was cold and undrinkable. Valentine dessert was good. Overall very disappointing for Belle Notte. Waitress seemed inexperienced and overwhelmed. Didn’t know anything about the wines or cocktails.
