    Food was great! Our server could have been more engaging and attentive. We had to ask for water twice, she wasn’t bad just not what I’ve experienced in previous dining.

    It was a quiet night at this restaurant which usually is very noisy. We had a very good dinner as we expected, very reliable. My favorite dish is not on the menu: veal Augustine.

    I’ve enjoyed dining at Bella Costa every time I’ve visited. The staff are friendly and I haven’t had a dish I’ve disliked. The prices are also very reasonable for the portion size and quality of the dishes.

    Dinner with my wife. Drinks where good. Onion soup was good. Roasted romaine salad was good. My veal parm was cooked good but lacked flavor. I had pink sauce. Sauce had no flavor. Pasta was good but sauce had no flavor. My wife had a combo veal parm with eggplant. Veal and eggplant cooked good. Red sauce had no flavor. Seams as no spices added to the sauce. We had lunch there before and same thing the sauce lacks flavor. Prices are good. Service is good. Food cooked correctly. Just needs flavor.

    Family restaurant vibe, huge portions, homemade dishes and great staff, plus the added piano player with great 70's and 80's tunes and you'll feel like you're transported back to that time!

    Decent place. Calamari was like frozen cardboard and when I complained the waitress was nice and apologized. But it would have been nice if they took it off the bill. Scrod was very good. Lava cake just average. Would go back but would think about it before I made a decision.

    Not a horrible experience but I wouldn't go back. Food was good but the waitress was surly and one time she came to the table the cigarette odor was overwhelming. Dinner arrived before the salads so we cancelled them. Prices were typical for the type /style of restaurant, but the up-charges were way more than normal. $8.00 for having a different sauce put on your pasta seemed exorbitant and $6.00 to change from one type of homemade noodles to gnocchi seemed excessive too.

    We arrived to a bustling restaurant. We ordered two glasses of wine which took 15 minutes to arrive. Our server left the wine and returned 10 minutes later for our orders. The salads took another 15 minutes to arrive. Our Caesar Salads were not edible. The lettuce was soggy yet underdressed. Dinners arrived 15 minutes later. 3 of our 4 meals were mediocre and 1 was completely incorrect. We informed the server that it was the wrong meal and she offered to bring over the menu to prove it was correct. As you can imagine, the meal went downhill from there. If you are looking for mediocre over-priced food, this is your place.

    My family has been dining at Bella Costa for over 30 years — the food is always excellent and a great value for the money. Paul, Yanna, Bobby, Carol and Liz treat you like family, however on NYE our server was gruff, and obvious more interested in turning over the table than providing the quality of service Bella Costa is know for. Our entrees were delivered far before our salads were finished, grated parm, black pepper and a second round of beverages had to be requested, plates were cleared while other guests were still eating, and the server had the bus boy hovering as we stood from our table. I realize it was NYE, however it was early evening before tables around us were seated, and the restaurant appeared to be well staffed. Overall, the food was great, the service was not. It was an isolated incident which I hope Bella Costa addresses.

    Food was excellent. I had Veal Piccata. Veal was very tender and homemade pasta was excellent. Wife had eggplant parmesan. Said it was sliced thin just the way she likes it. Overall she enjoyed it. It seemed that the person tending bar was also waiting on our table and service was a little slow. Biggest issue was finding parking in the small parking lot that serves a couple of restaurants and various retail stores. We ended up parking in the bank parking lot next door. Overall I was satisfied with the experience and would recommend Bella Costa.
