Wow what a hidden gem. I had never been here and found this online. I was most impressed! True Italian outside of the North End. Will definitely return.

Great little local spot. Took 4 other people here for a business dinner. Food was authentic. They had a nice local feel. Price wasn't crazy. Figured out COVID. Will be back next time I am in the area.

Overall this is a good restaurant, not in the best location, definitely not a 5 star. It is an average place to eat. Our waitress was ok with no personality. She also went MIA a few times. Either she had to many tables or not attentive. I am huge on customer service, and knowledgeable of the menu/specials I would recommend bella's in thr future,

I personally wouldn't return only because I expect more in service. ENJOY

Bella Costa is a diamond in the rough. Located in a out-of-the-way strip mall, this humble facade shades the fabulous food inside. The menu has the classics and also their Specials. The pastas are homemade, the sauces are wonderful, and they have a full variety of proteins to match them both with. Our server was delightful, engaging us as if we were family dining in the Dining Room.

Met someone half way from Worcester and Boston. I think a brand new waitress.
Took 2+ hours to eat for a table of 5. Is what it is. Everyone was very pleasant.

I think this is nice neighborhood place run by a pleasant family.....our experience was fine when it comes to value for the money. The food was plentiful, but nothing we would rush back for, since we live 45 minutes away. I feel that if you are aware that this is not a fine dining restaurant but are looking for solid Italian food at a reasonable price then this fits the bill.

We were seated right away but waited quite a while for someone to come to take our drink orders. We sat for quite some time with empty dishes in front of us and decided to ask for the check at the same time we ordered coffee to avoid another delay.

In all, it was fine...not spectacular, but fine.

The cuisine is consistently fresh, flavorful, and of high quality. The portions are ample and the presentation is beautiful. A new server was being trained the night we dined, but her mentor was ever present and guiding her along perfectly. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We have never been to this restaurant and at first before we walked in we weren’t sure if we had the right place. After entering, we were greeted kindly and immediately serve water and bread as well as asked for drinks a few minutes after sitting. Our waitress was incredible her name is Mary. She was also a bartender and made the best drinks I have had in a very long time. We love it so much that we returned five days later. We have told everyone about the restaurant and how amazing the food is from the bread right down to the dessert. We can’t wait To bring more family and friends to experience this delicious restaurant. We come from 30 minutes away and it is well worth the drive even if it was twice the distance

Every ounce of food we had at Bella Costa was to die for! We enjoyed the chicken parm, the eggplant and veal parm combo, meatballs, gnocci and tiramisu. Everything was full of flavor and perfectly cooked, especially the veal! We had a great time and our waitress was amazing! We will definitely be frequenting this place. The prices are reasonable, too. Thank you, Bella Costa, for an awesome experience accompanied with great food!
