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.

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.

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.

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.

It was ok.
The service was fine. There was a weird smell that became less noticeable with time. The bar was impressive looking, and I had an ok martini. The menu said “creamy” a lot, and they did not offer gluten-free options.

I had a salad-greens were fresh, dressing was nice. The seared scallops were perfect.

So why just ok?

Well my salad was mostly greens with four scallops and a few beet slices. Honestly they could have added two more scallops and twice as many beet slices. I would have paid more for the more favorable stuff-to-greens ratio.

The martini was definitely good, but I could tell by the presence of ice shards that they shook it. Why???

Was okay o ordered the scallops salad came without the beets had to ask for them and waitress brought them out. Others ordered the steak salad which looked good and the mussels in white wine sauce which were really delicious and plump, looked like almost a pound of mussels in the disk it was quite plentiful. The service was okay not great she seemed harried for some reason and lacked a bit of patience. ambience was fine there weren’t that m an my diners there for the lunch time. I would like to try it again maybe for dinner to see what happens

Got there at 6:20 for our 6:30 reservation. We were sat at our table immediately. Someone came by and filled our water glasses within 2 minutes and then we waited. And waited. And waited. For 25 minutes we sat without anyone coming over and at the very least acknowledging us. I have been in the service industries for 20+ years, I understand you get busy. But you can at least have someone say hello.

Anyways, a young waiter finally came over and asked for our drink order. We gave it to him and then waited another 15 minutes before we got fed up (no pun intended) and wound up leaving to go down the road for a meal. It was my sons 10th birthday and we ended up spending close to $300 at a competitors restaurant where our time and money was appreciated.

I'm not sure if they were understaffed or just an inexperienced crew on duty, but I sure wont be back if they dont get their act together. I sat in a taco bell parking lot (that's the outdoor seating) and drank water for 45 minutes on my sons birthday. Thanks Bella Costa!
