Cute little neighborhood place! Not a big menu. Appetizer we had the breaded goat cheese, big portion for 2 people could easily feed 4. It was not the best but good. Apparently very popular because they sold out as the night went on. I had scallops and they were huge! I did not care for the cauliflower and pine nut mixture they were laid on but the scallops were cooked just right. My husband had the special Mahi Mahi and he loved it. They make an okay dirty martini and his Manhattan was just okay too. Tables are very close together so no big jackets or handbags. We will definitely go back.

This restaurant is consistently very good. Cozy with a comfortable bar and staff is always friendly and willing to please.
It would be easier to go here more often if there were more budget friendly wine options.

Piazza Bella is reliably good for interesting Italian dishes. Real Italian waiters and a osteria feel. Always a good choice for dinner.

My sister and husband were in town and a friend recommended Piazza Bella. It was amazing, fresh ingredients, and handmade pasta. Great for any pasta lover. Our server was awesome, friendly, and comped a free appetizer and limoncello. We will be back soon!

We had a lovely dinner here the other night to celebrate my husband's birthday. The food was excellent--huge portions and perfectly cooked. The service went above and beyond what was expected. It was really a very enjoyable evening.

This wonderful gem is worth it every single time. I've been here with both large groups and small intimate dates and have never been disappointed. Even though my last meal was a late reservation they treated us so kindly and kept things fresh and light, the wine, the food, the staff, it keeps me coming back for years and years - 5 stars,cdont miss this place it's truly one of a kind. (Oh and there is valet if you are driving)

Took by 17 year old son out for dinner in the neighborhood. I knew we were taking a risk because I had not heard good reviews from others that live close by but we decided to take a chance. Big mistake! This is NOT the same restaurant that it used to be. It is incredibly loud and to speak to your table mates you have to yell. I know that doesn't bother some people but you should beware if this is not your preferred situation. We were seated immediately since we had a reservation but it took forever to be acknowledged by our server and to get water etc. The server was polite but not attentive. The bus people kept trying to take our appetizer (fried calamari = eatable but extra chewy) before we were finished. I defiantly felt like they were trying to get us out of there a quickly as possible. They never came back to see if we wanted another drink and my son had to ask to get his water glass refilled. The final straw was my entree. I ordered the Capellini because I LOVE Capellini with "fresh cherry tomatoes and basil" which is exactly how it was described on the menu. But what they brought out had a red sauce with chopped tomatoes and basil mixed in, plus a ton of sliced raw garlic. So much RAW garlic that when I fished it all out I ended up with a pile of it on my bread plate. ( Who eats raw garlic? Tasted it just to be sure ) My son had the potato gnocchi which he said was ok. 3 stars are for the nice patio, pretty setting and the wine was good. Would have had another glass if they had asked.

Once again this neighborhood staple came up trumps - the lamb meatball special starter was delicious, and easily enough for two. I recommend they add it to the regular menu as a main as I would get it again, probably as a new go-to if the specials don't get me first! We shared a steak and a dessert too, both of which were cooked to perfection.

We always come here after attending Cubs games. Great, warm atmosphere. Very well appointed. Always have special pastas that are homemade. Great flavors. Sautéed calamari a must. Generous poured cocktails. The true definition of a "neighborhood find."

This is a neighborhood staple for us, particularly midweek, where we can rely on a few delicious menu dishes like the agnolotti, bruschetta or filet steak. But best of all is they have specials to offer something different to consider every time, and the staff are super friendly and generous with their time. And now the weather is good, they have the patio out front which is great for people watching!

We enjoyed a delightful meal at Piazza Bella on a Wednesday evening in July. We sat at a lovely table in the window and had a responsive and delightful server. The potato gnocchi in bolognese sauce was delicious and we loved the shaved slices of Parmesan cheese on our salad. The atmosphere is charming! We will definitely return!
