Late valentines day with my 18 year old son.
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.
Made a reservation for Valentine’s Day, food was great, service was fast and friendly, there was live piano.. overall perfect night!
This was our second visit to Bella Costa.
It is pretty equidistant from western MA and Cape Cod.....and hence, a good meeting place for old friends. The food is well prepared and quite delicious. The small plates are an excellent value....and very plentiful.
Bella Costa is indeed a hidden gem. Don't let the strip mall location deter you!!
First time here for dinner. What a terrific restaurant! Can't believe it took us this long to get here. Food was well prepared (I asked for Fra Diavolo spicy sauce and they delivered perfectly). We're definitely coming back.
The chocolate mousse is wonderful!
Service was friendly. There seemed to be a lot of regulars and they were greeted by name and asked how family was doing, etc. The crowd was an interesting mix of people who seemed to be mostly from the local area. A bit loud but we could still hear the live piano. The fried mozzarella was mozzarella sticks. My eggplant parm was extremely average. I think my husband liked his seafood dish but his bananas foster was covered in extremely strong alcohol which did not burn off all the way. He had to eat around it.
The food is very good. they are very accommodating to dietary requests. The atmosphere is nice. The valet parking is also welcome. And the service is good and the music is nice. I often get the salad with salmon on it and that is lovely.
Traditional and high quality southern Italian cuisine. I’ve visited this restaurant for 30 years and it is always reliably good food. Large portions are sure to result in a doggy bag. Pleasant piano music during dinner is a nice accompaniment.
We love Bella Costa. It's cozy and has a piano player. The food is excellent. We've been there for dinner and Sunday brunch and it is always very good.
The restaurant was very busy, they did their best to get us in on time, but we had to wait about 20 minutes. They comped us two appetizers, which they didn’t need to do, but it was of course appreciated. The mussels app was great as was the calamari. Entrees were good, all the pasta great, but the paperdelle was a tad over done. All in all a nice evening and we will be back to Bella Costa
Bella Costa is a great place to get Italian food, along with some other cuisines. The portions are large, and the pasta is home-made. The bread tastes just like bread that I had in Tuscany. It is very busy on weekends, so I recommend reservations.
Love Bella Costa, it's well prepared food at good value, and a nice atmosphere.
Great place for Italian food with a piano bar
We reserved a table for two at 5PM Saturday using OpenTable. When we arrived at restaurant the gentleman at the front desk was on a lengthy phone conversation telling the caller that "they" couldn't be seated until 8:15 PM, but could be seated away from the piano in the quieter rear room. When the phone call ended we announced ourselves and the reservation. We were led to a table adjacent to the piano, directly across from the front desk and the drafty entry. We asked for a different table and were accomodated in the rear room which was otherwise empty except for one table. While I was washing up, my wife, alone at the table, was questioned by the desk gentleman as to whether we really had a reservation.The waitress was polite and efficient. The Cioppino was not exceptional (the sauce was apparently added to separately precooked pasta and sea food, as it didn't fully cover either). We won't return.
Never disappoints. Food is delish. Service is reliable. Bobby makes you feel like part of the family. A neighborhood gem for sure!
We have eaten here many times, the food is always excellent as is the service.
This is my favorite Italian restaurant in the area, and I recommend it strongly!
In addition, the serving is quite large, always enough for lunch, the next day.
The employees are quite amiable.
On a very busy evening with some large groups, the server Kudos to Eve was prompt and efficient.
