The server was great and very friendly, but the food was kind of bland. The meatballs al forno (Not sure if it was called that exactly lol) Tasted like spaghetti-O meatballs

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!

I had the pork chop which was cooked and seasoned perfectly. The Brussel sprouts were glazed with honey and crispy. Great meal.

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.

Bella Notte was a great experience. The waiter was so kind and considerate and the manager even came by to check on us. The salmon was delicious and my wife said her pork chop was delicious as well. It was our first time and normally they bring by a special dessert. However, they were aware of my milk allergy and asked me about it. We declined dessert, but then they decided to kindly offer us a free sorbet. If you're looking for a delicious Italian restaurant with excellent, courteous service, you can't go wrong with Bella Notte!

We had a large group of 10 or 11 and they were very accommodating. The food was very good but it was a very busy night and the service was pretty slow. We were in no hurry as it was a birthday celebration so that was not a big deal. Plus we had wine. LOL this is one of my favorite places for either a small intimate dinner or a large group. Highly recommend.

Nice atmosphere for a date night! Not the absolute quietest option if peaceful solitude is your goal, but definitely not so loud that it prevented us from conversing comfortably. Good food, reasonable price, and an enjoyable place.

What can I say...Bella Notte NEVER disappoints!! We had excellent service and a delicious meal. I'm on a low carb diet and they were able to substitute my pasta out for a bed of broccoli. I LOVE (and crave) their Signature Chicken Piccata. The blend of artichoke hearts, capers and their sauce is phenomenal. I also always order a side of brussel sprouts....fantastic! Can't wait to go back!

We were celebrating two family birthdays. Our table was nestled in a corner which gave our small granddaughter a small space to move around without being in the way of servers & other diners. Our service was outstanding, meal arrived in a timely manner, food was delicious!
