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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
