                                We just celebrated my husband's birthday at Bella Costa. The staff had always been friendly and the food had always been great! This is our go-to place in MetroWest for special occasions.

                                We had lunch on Mother’s day. The strip sirloin steak was the best I’ve had in years !!! We had Easter dinner at a fancy steak restaurant in Wellesley and it didn’t come close to Bella Costa.

                                Good service and good food. Beet salad and crab-stuffed eggplant appetizers were great. Lobster ravioli was a bit bland. Scallop special was very good. Overall a nice dinner!

                                The cocktails were very good, but food was average; nothing exciting and somewhat bland in execution. Service was uninspiring.

                                The food was quite inconsistent The appetizers were excellent (arancini and scallops on golden beets), and the ravioli were very good, but unfortunately the veal dishes were only fair, and I wish the same care and attention that was made on the scallop appetizer occurred for my broiled fish platter, but unfortunately it was quite overcooked. I am not a fan of chewy scallops and shrimp. The chef's mashed potatoes were good. The cannoli dessert was quite good. Although the service was very pleasant and appropriately attentive, I am sorry to say I doubt we will return.

                                Of the four items we ordered, 3 were great - we had to send back the lasagna - was very salty, but the substitute item was out in less than 10 minutes, and they only charged us for the lasagna. Service was great.

                                We had an early reservation as we had another event to attend afterwards. We were sat at the bar as we requested. Service was excellent and they were very attentive to our requests. Food and drinks were all excellent and the prices are very fair for the portion sizes and the quality of the food. I had the seafood risotto and my wife had chicken piccata and we had the meatball appetizer. Everything was excellent and hot. Definitely will be back here again.

                                Don't let the location in a little strip mall fool you- the food is top notch and there's plenty to take home for leftovers. Homemade pasta was divine. Highly recommend the flaming coffees- super cool to see them pour it and so tasty!

                                Excellent experience on a busy Saturday night. We were seated promptly our server was friendly and very attentive. Classic chicken parm was perfectly executed, and the broiled scrod was fantastic. Certainly the best Italian style restaurant in the area.

                                We just visited here for the first time. My grilled seafood platter was the best I've ever had during my 71 years of life, and my wife's veal was superb, with terrific homemade pasta. Service by Carol left us wondering how she could read our minds as to the moments were ready for her to appear, and she made us laugh with her great sense of humor. We are raving fans of this place!

                                Service was not that great waiter did not properly introduce herself her focus was God knows where no basic manners, food was overrated it was mediocre. The only good part of this whole place was the gentleman touching the piano other than that I don’t recommend this place at all
