Chicken Bella Costa
Sautéed chicken with white wine, fresh garlic and broccoli tossed with homemade rigatoni
Seared Scallops Salad
Seared Scallops served with an arcadia mix base topped roasted golden beets, tossed with our homemade white peach balsamic vinaigrette
Sautéed scallops, shrimp, mussels, diced tomatoes, asparagus, tossed with risotto in a buttery creamy sauce
The service was extremely slow. We ordered drinks and it took 20 minutes and the food took almost 45 minutes. The scallops were over-cooked as was the pasta. The chicken Marsala was flavorful. Not sure if we would go back.
LOVE everything about this place and the food is amazing
We were in a rush and they quickly seated and served us. Wonderfully accommodating. Great specials. Can’t beat pumpkin and prosciutto raviolis in the fall.
The staff are attentive and friendly. The food was excellent.
As always the food was excellent. Service is friendly. I will return
The scallops and pumpkin ravioli dishes were fabulous. Scallops cooked perfectly. The side salads were delicious as well. Good wine pour. Great value and lovely experience. Service very good. We'll be back.
Background noise gentle, so table conversation could be heard easily without shouting. Our waitress was excellent, efficient, attentive, not pushy, good suggestions.
Great food, excellent service, but the room was loud.
Great meal. Great server! Not much else to be said.
We had a lovely lunch on their outside tables. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Food was delicious. Chocolate and peanut butter cake is an awesome dessert option!
Fish dinners were DELICIOUS! Staff was friendly and efficient. We'll be back soon.
Great food, service and owners!
Had the broiled seafood platter. Have had in the past. Everything was mushy and flavorless.
Obvious problem with staffing - both kitchen and wait staff. Took 20+ minutes for waitress to bring a drink and also tell us they were out of the beer my husband ordered 20 minutes earlier. Mussel appetizer was cold so only ate a little of it. Main course was ok but not as good as usual.
the food was amazing. Prices were great. BUT..... it was so crowded with no extra space between tables. Felt very uncomfortable by the time we finished dinner. When we first got there it wasn't bad at all.
Such a great night. Brought another couple with us for dinner & it was awesome. Food & service was n point as always. Love Melinda b& all the staff @ Bella Costa
Had a great ladies lunch with babies! Food was delicious
Always a great service.
Sunday evening outdoor dining for party of four. Generous portions, good quality, pleasant experience!
My wife and I split the eggplant Parmesan. Huge portion excellent food more than enough for the two of us plus the Portobello sauteed mushroom appetizer and salad. Amazing meal
I wish I remember our server’s name as he was both helpful and accommodating. Food was very good - gnocchi and the veal & asparagus special. Will definitely return.
Excellent , as usual. Due to staff shortages, service was a little slower than normal. Wonderful family owned restaurant . Great, hardworking people!
Food was excellent. I had the chicken special, which is special because it’s delicious but they always have it on the menu. Served with home made pasta. The cheese ravioli and veal parm were both very good.
Had the crab mascarpone ravioli it was worth the trip!
Would recommend Bella Costa’s to anyone who enjoys authentic Italian cuisine. We’ve been there several timesa and have never been disappointed. They have been at that location for many years and they do it right.
We hav eaten here multiple times and enjoy it. This evening two of the meals we ordered were cold when they were served to us and we waited quite awhile for our dinner.. It is also disappointing that being an Italion restaurant they no longer offer olive oil for you to dip your bread in. Hopefully tonights experience will not happen again.
Wonderful service, friendly, felt like family. Great food and value
Great little Italian restaurant tucked away in Framingham.
Excellent food. Friend had the aranchini and a steak salad. I had the golden beet caprese and broiled seafood platter. Enjoyed our meals.
Had delicious dinners. The veal special and the veal Marsala were excellent
Great food. Lovely lunch
Fabulous food great service. Cute place
Food was great. Very crowded so very loud. Hard to carry a conversation across the table. Service was terrible although waitress seemed to be very busy. Had to get up and find her to order another drink. Dirty dishes sat on table way too long
Be aware that there are two rooms. One room had a lively bar, warm ambience and even a live piano player. Unfortunately we were seated in the adjoining room which mimicked a bad event hall; cold, harsh lighting (street lights in our eyes) and no music or atmosphere to speak of. Our entrees were a disappointment overall. I had Seafood Risotto which was mushy and sopping in butter. The bar service was slow to our room but had a generous pour and our waitress was excellent, staff friendly.
Great food and value, They even sat us on the quieter side when we asked
I was stunned when the server said they did not have any olive oil. The food was good, the service fair (but that's everywhere) and overall I would try it again.
We had the most wonderful server named Travis. He was so friendly and warm, and knowledgeable about both the menu selections as well as the wine list. We have rarely had such an engaging server. And the food and wine were terrific, as always. As long time customers, we love going to Bella Costa. But to have had a server like Travis, we will race back, and only hope Travis will be there to serve us.
Have never had a bad meal here! Service is always great, & staff very attentive and friendly!
Bella Costa was a wonderful choice, as always! The food is very good and portions generous. The service and warm welcome make this a great destination.
We had a delicious meal! Travis the waiter was exceptional. We have been going to Bella Costa for years. Highly recommend !
