A little hidden oasis of a restaurant. Absolutely amazing from the meal, to extremely friendly wait staff. Parkings a little tricky but once you get a spot it’s smooth sailing from there! Highly recommend the banana foster for a desert you won’t regret it! Was reasonably priced and definitely following all COVID protocols and makes everybody feel comfortable. Will definitely be back! Accidentally ordered the wrong salad and they fixed it free of charge. Amazing service!

We made reservations for the night before Christmas Eve, and it was very quiet and comfortable. The service was excellent. We've been coming here for years and will continue to do so. And the food was outstanding!

The waitress was excellent. The restaurant was more crowded than normal which is great for them, so happy to see it. Things happened at a slower pace but that suited us just fine.

Enjoyed a lovely seafood risotto, scallops and shrimp were cooked perfectly.
Chicken combo one of the other party had was also very good.
But the Chefs chicken special was too salty.
Piano player is a very nice touch.

My dinner companion's beet caprese special appetizer was good -- an interesting take on a classic. Some of his gnocchi were tougher than others. My portobello mushroom appetizer was fantastic. Some of the seafood in my cioppino (fish, scallops) was a little undercooked; the rest (shrimp, mussels) were fine.

The bread and butter served with the meal was pretty unimaginative -- bland slices of Italian bread at room temperature. The butter pats were ice cold so it was hard to spread it. Olive oil might have worked better.

The live pianist is a great addition. This wasn't our best experience at Bella Costa, but it won't be our last. We really like this place.

LOVE Bella Costa and so glad their loyal following has kept them going during the pandemic. Their homemade pasta is terrific and I go back regularly for the eggplant parm. Have had other dishes and nothing has been lacking.

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.

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.
