The ambient is set more for young teens. Take out on one side, restaurant in the middle, and Game Center on the back. Food was nothing special. I'd rather order the $5 little Caesars next time. Clam linguine was horrible.. Tasted like raw pasta with 99 cents canned clam juice!!
The pizza and lasagna were the most decent...Ooo and the bottled beer as well.
Had to wait on my waitress, more than 3 times. Luckily one worker came by and attended me and my wife.
Place has potential just needs table organization, new look, and a little more professional table service. However, if it's intended to be more of a chill spot for young teens than...it is what it is. Would only go back if things changed.

I usually don't come here in the weekend but this day was the best day that me and my brothers and sisters can all go out to celebrate my birthday early because i work that day. I was surprised on the level of service despite the amount of people. Food was a little costly for my budget but it was worth it. All in all I will be returning but maybe not on the weekend this time.

Overall we had a great time. The food was great, the service was great and we enjoyed our meal. The one complaint that I do have is that we made a reservation but still had to wait about an hour to be seated.that tells me that they are not paying attention to the reservation system.

Great food, service, and ambiance. I have been coming here for years, and I have always been satisfied by their quality food and service. I appriciated the fact that I received a reminder call from them to ensure I was still going, when I arrived I was greeted properly and my tables were ready. During my family event I received a lot of compliments on how good the food was and the great ambiance of the place. Thank you La Bella's Pizza.

Truly was not expecting such a great place but my peeps and me were super happy with our dinner at the restaurant and then we returned after our play to the bar side which was had plenty of pool tables and TVs for entertainment. The only downside for us was the REALLY loud Ranchero music. I can totally understand catering to the locals but it was a bit much for our group.

Good food. Fun for kids. Great family value packs. Order came out fast. Nice waitresses. One issue: waitresses so busy didn't even check back even once to ask if all was well well or if we needed anything. Had to get up to ask at counter for salad dressing. This could be improved.

We ordered clams and linguini. The cook opened a can of clams and poured it on the pasta. It had no flavor even though the waitress said they put garlic in it. NO GARLIC. Horrible meal. Left it.

Great place to come enjoy a drink and eat some great pizza. Had a very good time here. Our waitress took a long time to get to us initially, but once a gentleman looking like the manager noticed we had been here sitting with no drinks. He came up asked us if we'd been helped. He got our waitresses attention real quick. From then on service was great.

We were 12 pp. Foodserver friendly. But slow. Perhaps was tired. Food? Good. A "missunderstanding" when We arrived. I made a reservation, but hosstes couldnt "find us". But actually she was helpful and took care of us. In General, we enjoyed our experience at Bella's. We will come back.

Food was great and very affordable. We ate in the cafe (video games). It was way too loud. I would recommend eating in the pizza garden. There is far less noise and the atmosphere is much more authentic.

For an inexpensive, family pizza night out, this is the restaurant! The entrees were simple but portions were plentiful. The ambiance reminded me of the old-style family pizzerias I grew up with in Brooklyn. Seated near the kitchen, it was a bit loud, but the service was excellent.

i have never been to la bellas before but i hear that its good but busy. i made an online reservation at 645p then at 650p i called to confirm that my reservation for 730p had went through. on the reservation notes, we asked to be put on the game side of the restaurant. when we got there at 735p, the guy at the front said that he just got the reservation and that it would be about a 30 min wait! this did not make me happy since i made the reservation over 45 min. he said that the reservations have a delay getting to them as opposed to the other side of the restaurant. i went looking around and found a table for them to put together for my party. we had to wait like 15 min. the service was ok, they forgot some of our drinks a few times.

Had a birthday dinner gathering with 10 pals and the food was yummy, the alcohol was flowing nicely and the ambience was just right. Our server neglected us a bit, even when it wasnt busy, she didn't attend to us as much as I would have liked. Overall, it was a great spot for food, drinks and games! I'll return!

I've been eating at La Bella's since before I was born (in my mother's stomach) and it's been a family tradition to get together at La Bella's for many years. This was my first time going to the games restaurant, being very resistant to change, and had a great time. My little one was a bit young for most of the games but had the greatest time running around. Im very happy with this experience and plan to return soon!

The prices are more expensive than other pizza places comparably sized. The qualifying factor is that you get the pizza with the convenience of a full bar, wait staff and a fully stocked game room all at one location; that is hard to find.

The food is good, the friendliness of our waitress was good but somehow one of our pizza orders was misplaced and we never got it. 30 mnutes after our first pizza arrived, order placed at same time, i was still being told the pizza was coming. We got so hungry we ate the kids pizza. I then cancelled and was told if I still wanted it as it was coming out in a few minutes they would put it in a togo box and give me a discount. I declined as I would've figured they would've offered something else besides a discount. After we exited my wife got ran over by a female enployee on a bike leaving work. My tumbled and scraped her elbow and the employe just said sorry and drove away. She's fine but tge experience was not a good one.
