This was our first time at this restaurant. Our waitress was very pleasant and accommodating. We will definitely return. The homemade pasta was the star of the evening and we all enjoyed it.

I only recently discovered this place. Food as good as the North End, but much more reasonable price. The Bella Costa coffee is a killer after dinner drink!
Portions are huge, you won't leave hungry. Prices range from extraordinarily reasonable to about $30 for the more expensive plates, but you will always get your money's worth.

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?

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!

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.

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.
