simply too, too noisy.... took 40 minutes to get a fish entree , when it came, the other persons eggplant parmigiana was old, cold and tasteless... The bread and olives are great, the service is ok and the hostess - pleasant..OVERALL - stay away unless CHEAP FOOD and NOISE is what you want.

Bella Roma was delicious as always. One of my favorite restaurants in LA and my favorite Italian for sure. The homemade pasta is to die for and the specials are always great.

I HAVE recommended Bella Roma to all my friends and everybody else loves it too! They should send me a finder's fee. It is just a good, casual, reasonably priced Italian restaurant. The owner is always there to make sure. Way better than a large, impersonal chain restaurant.

The food is OK but far from being great. The service was excellent. It is a neighborhood Italian restaurant which does not compare to the better Italian restaurants in Beverly Hills. For example I had veal marsala at one of the top-end Italian restaurants in Beverly Hills recently and the quality of the meat was far better than at Bella Roma and also the sauce was better prepared. However, It is more expensive than Bella Roma . So if you’re looking for an adequate meal for less expensive cost, this would be a good choice.

It is my most favorite italian restaurant in LA, which is saying alot. The food is outstanding and so reasonably priced. I've paid a lot more for less good food at some of the trendier and most expensive Italian restaurants in LA, and they don't come close to Bella Roma S.P.Q.R.

Not only would I recommend Bella Roma to a friend, but I have......often. And everybody keeps returning. This is a great, great neighborhood Italian restaurant with good tasty food and very nice service. My only quibble is the noise level when you sit inside on a busy night. I go for the Bucatini Amatriciana. Hard to find and they serve delicious, huge portions.

We enjoyed the meal. The menu selections are extensive, and the food was hot when served. I had the gnocchi with spicy marinara sauce, which was delicious. The gnocchi were soft and like pillows—probably the best I’ve ever had. Service was great. Our main problem was the noise level. We had trouble hearing one another across the table. Still, I look forward to returning sometime soon.

I got to Bella Roma when I want the two C's - cannelloni and cannoli. They're both excellent there. It tends to be a little noisy because there are a lot of guests at dinner time. We happened to sit near a birthday party for a group of nine-year-olds so it was extra loud this time. But, the food is good and all of the faces there are friendly.

The salmon was very good but the scallops in the appetizer were pretty mediocre. The Cabernet Sauvignon that cost $32.00 was excellent for the price

Everything was perfect with the exception of the very loud and continuous barking of the dog at the table next to us. It was extremely annoying.

Fair. Food was pretty good, but service was only ok perhaps because of how busy it was.

I have never been treated so bad... our waiter yelled at my mother who is an elder and he was beyond rude to our table. A chef and waiter didn’t showed up to work that night, but that should not dignify complete disservice to costumers, especially at a time when your customers could be and are federal employees that furloughed. We ended up leaving after ordering because the waiter was so abusive with his words.

Had a longer than expected wait because a few workers didn’t show, including the pizza maker so no pizza. The staff did their best and delivered a phenomenal meal, ensuring everyone was attended to as frequently as possible, with nothing but great attitudes toward everyone. I left full and content with the experience.

This is our favorite restaurant. We always have a great time here and the food is excellent. The prices are very reasonable too. Every one of the servers are excellent. It is pretty busy most nights so be sure to make a reservation.

Good fare! - Good selections. The whitefish is delicious. The bread could be tastier and the music was annoying. Would love some crooning neapolitan songs or classical.
Liked our waiter.

I have been here many times and the food is always excellent. The service by Roberto, the owner, is excellent ... he knows I am a slow diner and never rushes me. If you're a chocolate lover and they have the Flourless Chocolate Cake, go for it ... it's super rich and the best I've ever had. I always bring my own bottle of wine since the $6 corkage fee is more than reasonable!!!
