Great Food! Great Prices! Great Atmosphere! Highly recommend Bella Costa to my family and friends
First time. Good. What we expected.
second visit and the food was very good, the room we were in was quite loud due to several large, loud tables.
service was a little slow but not terrible, busy evening
Love this place in Framingham!
Bella Costa has excellent freshly cooked meals. The ambiance and wait staff provide a cozy feel to your dining experience! We very much enjoy dining here and bringing our friends and family.
My friend and I had a Sunday brunch at the place. The parking lot was full upon arrival and I thought I would have to park elsewhere. The restaurant however, was not full at all. We both ordered from the menu (didn't go with a buffet due to poor choices available). My friend got 3 eggs, a toast and home made fries, and I got a burger with fries. I think my not home made fries got more stars than hers home made. My burger was sooo overcooked that I question the quality of meat that went into it. The service was nice and a guy ran after me, when I forgot my dogie box on the table. Overall, nothing spectacular, but it all depends on the choices you have in your particular neighborhood. That's why I like living in Brighton.
Our experience was very disappointing!! Saturday night is supposed to be a treat but this past Saturday was terrible! We had anew waitress but nonetheless someone should have helped her out. We waited at our table for close to 45 minutes just for our drinks. She kept apologizing but that soon wore thin. The appetizers arrived and they were good but then still another long wait to have plates cleared and “cold” entrees arrive. One if our entrees was the wrong dish so still another wait fir the right one. Over 2 1/2 hours and one of the last ones to leave the restaurant with no apologies or attempt to compensate. The waitress did mention at one point that she would speak to the management on our behalf but never did.
we won’t return to this restaurant!
service and food was good. They attract a large amount of seniors dinning here and seniors taste buds lose their ability as people age. I was was wondering if that was reason they heaverly over salted the food as average clientele cannot taste anymore?
We were very happy with out entire visit. Our waitress Michela was lovely. Nice surprise was the piano!!
This restaurant is consistently good. From the outside, it doesn't look like much, located in a small strip mall. The menu selections are varied, so there is a lot to choose from. On the Thursday evening we dined there, a piano player came in at 7 PM, which was a nice touch. Service is good, and owner is always present, a fact that probably makes the restaurant as successful as it is.
Nice restaurant and very welcoming host. Live piano music was appropriate and not overwhelming. Delicious bread , salad and veal pasta dish which we shared and still ate too much. Reasonable cocktail cost and comfortable.
Pasta and calamari were great. Two family members had the chicken (grilled chicken and chicken cordon bleu). Both chicken dishes the meat was over cooked and impossible to cut. I don’t think we will return
Love Bella costas. They are super busy which makes me happy for them! The whole dining experience is always great. The one thing I noticed this Rome was our server was not as attentive and did not greet us for over 5 minutes and did not check in frequent enough. We attributed that to the sheer volume of patrons.
Amazing food, happy staff, warm environment.
A traditional atmosphere for an Italian restaurant. Dark wood, pleasant music in the background. Small bar but friendly. Food is consistently fabulous. They use high quality ingredients and prepare the food to satisfy diners' preferences. Overall gem.
Parking is extremely tight so leave extra time to use the valet service. Four of us arrived separately and were seated promptly as we straggled in. Very busy Saturday, so service was spaced, but appropriately. Arancini app was finished before we got 3 diff cocktails and glass of wine. Nice selection of entrees and specials served in heavy warm plates. Chicken Cacciatore was well prepared but lacked distinctive flavor such as from capers, olives, anchovies or even garlic. Red sauce was good but not outstanding. Decent wine pour, but one cocktail was all ice. Another cocktail tasted strongly of alcohol. Server disappeared after brief initial check in, so I'd no opportunity to ask for pepper flakes or fresh bread refill. Portions are large, but not unusually. Short ribs came with about two cups of spinach-laced rice, enough for family of four. Side vegetables would have been a better option to all that rice. Not many veggies on menu. Molten chocolate cake served a la mode was unimpressive, go for the cannoli. Decaf cappuccinos had to be sent back for heating. Noise was only moderate so we were able to converse easily- a big plus!
A wonderful meal as usual. Our favorite restaurant. Service and food are always outstanding.
My confirmed Open Table reservation was not in their system, but they were able to accommodate use promptly. Our second visit was enjoyable, the service is excellent for a very busy place. The menu choices were difficult to choose from. My wife likes the small plates options which were plenty for her.
We were at Bella Costa to celebrate 2 friend birthdays on Saturday. We made a last minute reservation and were lucky to get in early. The food was excellent and the strawberry tirimisu was to die for!
We had a wonderful time. We cannot wait to return to try out more menu items. Food was delicious!!
Best pasta I've eaten!! Delicious veal marsala. Great service.
Love this place. Wonderful food and great service every time!!
We frequent Bella Costa and the food is consistently good. Portions are large for the price. We had the veal parm and the veal marsala. Both were excellent!
Very good Italian in Natick.
The food was excellent, the service was very good, the atmosphere is very nice, etc. The portions are large. I look forward to dining there, again.
Delicious Italian food. Went early evening on a Sunday. We were seated right away. The server was attentive and friendly. I had the schrod and it was incredibly fresh!
It was our first time trying Bella Costa, but we’ll definitely be back! Very large, filling servings for a good price. The food was delicious and fresh!
Great service. We had out of town guests in for business and they loved the food. We will definitely return!
Great food and service at very reasonable prices in a nice atmosphere. Highly recommend.
It was our first time at Bella Costa and we will be returning. The food was excellent, prices great and we love restaurants where the owner comes by to see how your dinner was. Can't wait to try other menu items.
Bella Costa is a busy restaurant so busy in fact we had to wait 20 minutes for our table (yes, we had reservations). The staff was less professional than I had expected using phrases such as “you guys” and “Okey dokey”. We were asked three times how our food was. The food itself was unremarkable and the portions generous. What I especially enjoyed was the piano player tucked into a corner near the bar.
Food was delicious! We’ll be back!
I hadn’t been in a while while I but I’m glad I came back. The food is was delicious and our waitress was friendly and fabulous.
As always, we had a great experience at Bella Costa! We were able to get a booth in the main dining room as we requested, the drinks were tasty and the swordfish special was delicious. The portions were very generous and I enjoyed the leftovers the next day.
Amazing pasta dishes and service! Quiet place to have a relaxed family dinner.
The food was good but not exceptional. We got veal and Eggplant parm and chicken parm. They gave me eggplant and chicken not veal but that was fine. Place was very crowded and a bit noisy. Side salads very reasonable not included with meals. Portions are large!
Late valentines day with my 18 year old son.
The food was great. The service excellent!
Fantastic food and the staff were very accommodating. Brenda was absolutely fantastic and delightful. Great food and greast service.
I like restaurants to be punctual ... especially when you've booked your reservation a week or more in advance. We were seated possibly 15 minutes late, which isn't that bad considering we got a place at the bar and had fun listening to the piano music. It was packed being it was Valentine's Day, but then we ordered fried calamari for appetizer and we did not get anything until 8 p.m. We were both starving, by this time. We did get some bread & oil earlier, but I did not want to get full on bread. So by the time our entree came, we were full from eating bread since everything came so late. If you go here, make sure you eat an hour before going or you will be too hungry waiting for your meal. The seafood rissotto was very good and their calamari. We just wished we could have eaten it soon after the time I made for dinner which was 7:15 p.m.
