I would have given 5 stars except for the fact that there is no where to stand inside for people who are waiting to be seated. The food is amazing and the table service outstanding. It would serve them better to put a couple of outside heaters for people to wait there instead of standing by tables where people are seated and trying to enjoy their meal. There is plenty of seating outside but if its cold they come inside and stand right next to where people are trying to eat.

Really very crowded but wait staff politely asked for patience as food and drinks were being prepared. Food was very good - homemade pasta excellent! Really good variety of dishes.

Food was very good. Very noisy and hard to have conversation. Aisles between tables very small, wait staff were always bumping into each other. Tables much too close together, not enough room for wait staff to walk up and back. Large takeout business meant wait staff constantly walking past with takeout orders adding to the chaos!

The scallops with spinach and Parmesan cheese with linguine was very good. Broiled seafood platter was also very good. Cesar salad didn’t have romaine lettuce and was large. The service was excellent and we were glad we made the Open Table Reservation and we were seated in a booth.

We were staying in the area for one night and I lucked into finding this place in a google search! The food was amazing, very large portions and moderately priced. Ordered the Veal parm and the piece of veal was as large as the plate! We were not able to finish our meal, but couldn't resist ordering a chocolate lava cake to share for desert, which was delicious. The restaurant was very busy (it was Friday night) but we got right in at our reservation time. It was obviously a local favorite for a good reason! I would definitely go back and recommend Bella Costa.

Nice group lunch. My husband thought his pesto sandwich just so-so. I said why didn't you order an entree type lunch? Nice place to eat.

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.
