Pumpkin ravioli amazing service was amazing wine was amazing
Wonder little place. Always excellent service and many food choices.
Wonderful, as always. Such a treat!
Excellent menu and excellent food.
Waiting on a table of 11 is difficult and your staff handles it efficiently and managed to get everyone’s order correct with a smile. The food arrived hot and delicious. We were celebrating a special birthday and you made it special for everyone.
We always book a reservation for my wife and son’s joint birthday. We’ve been doing this for years now. It’s been enjoyable and delicious every time!
Unlike during all past visits, this time the bread was literally stale and chewy. Not warm and fresh. Service was lacking - perhaps the server was not having a great day on Thursday but we felt like there was lack of attentiveness and general disinterest in serving us. Main course was good and so was the tiramisu at the end.
This was a standard business lunch with a colleague. We both had salads with some protein. The food was fresh and delicious. The service was great. I definitely recommend Bella Monica for a good meal and business conversation.
We did gluten free menu which had a lot of options. The stuffed shells were wonderful, the caprese salad delicious.
It was wonderful, as always! The food never disappoints, and the staff, servers, etc. go out of their way to be sure everything is as it should be. This is one of my very favorite restaurants in Raleigh. Thanks!!
Very busy, the food was good but not great, it felt a bit more like volume was more important then the overall dining experience.
They are trying hard it has just lost a bit of it homemade, high touch feel.
Great meal and experience
Nice neighborhood restaurant that gave us great food and a really nice atmosphere while visiting the area. Outstanding service and delicious wine selection.
A must go to every time I come back home that never seems to fail!
Great place and great food! We went for a birthday lunch and they called back to see who it was for and extra attention was given we arrived.
Exceptional quality food and great service as well as atmosphere. I also appreciate the consistency of outstanding food and service each time I dine there.
There was a group of seven of us. We were seated timely, our service was wonderful and all entrées were delicious. We had a great time.
Great service and food as always.
The food was amazing and the service was spectacular. Everything our waitress recommenced was great?
We went for our anniversary dinner, the food was all excellent...had the flat bread which was very tasty.
Delicious! Best selection of gluten free Italian food around. Can't wait to return!
Great experience for our first time at Bella Monica. I found this place at the top of an online list for gluten-free restaurants in Raleigh and it did not disappoint. My newly gluten-free girlfriend loved the entirely separate menu and the food was great!
Easily the best Italian in Raleigh. The restaraunt is almost always busy and loud. Be prepared for that. The "neopolitan" pizza is just the same crust as the flatbread with sauce but is still very good.
Above and beyond service!! Thank you Jenny!!! Amazing experience!
Went for a business lunch in a group with dietary restrictions. The service was outstanding and there was something for everyone on the menu
Glad we picked Bella Monica. Made a reservation but found it was for Outdoor Seating. One of the ladies is extremely sensitive to bug bites, so I called and spoke to Derek. He immediately assured me that we would be seated indoors. When we arrived, Derek showed us to our seats in the back room. We were very pleased with our seating. We all enjoyed our dinners and so appreciate that y'all have Gluten Free choices for those of us who need it. It was an excellent dining experience. We will most definitely get together again at Bella Monica.
Always delicious, great service and dependable. Been coming here since I moved here a year ago.
Amazing food and service! This was our third or fourth trip there. We live in Richmond and celebrated my wife's birthday in Raleigh specifically to eat at Bella Monica. The Gluten Free menu is second to none. Well done!
I've been eating at Bella Monica for years. It is my favorite go to spot for dates or friends. This most recent visit I was with a friend who said that it was the best Tiramisu that he'd ever had and he has traveled extensively in Italy. I love sharing this restaurant with friends because they always have a "WOW" moment with the food and the service is always impeccable.
Food and service at this restaurant is excellent and you will probably have enough food for dinner the next day. I highly recommend.
I always enjoy this place, the food is delicious and it never gets too loud. It's a good place to meet up with friends for a nice dinner, or a good date spot.
Great food and wine. One of the best Italian restaurants in the area.
Had great service and special attention for my friend's birthday! :)
Food and service are always on point. Bella Monica is a very good restaurant. My most recent trip was a business lunch with someone from out of town. We were both very impressed with the food quality and presentation and never felt like we were waiting for the staff for any reason. I had the baked ziti and it was wonderfully cooked with a rich sauce and nicely baked cheese topping.
We had Long Time Friends In from out of town and wanted to share Bella Monica with them! Our “Go to” place for 19 years! Need I say more....
We went for our anniversary and they had a congratulations message written on the sidewalk in chalk when we got there, sprinkled little hearts on the table and made us feel really special. The food was outstanding and delightful. Ambiance was lovely - fine dining without being uptight. Great music playing throughout. Attentive service but not intrusive. I never had to raise my voice to be heard. My wife has celiac and had no reactions to anything. A perfect evening. I would go again and again.
Seated in booth by take-out counter and several times people were standing beside our table. Uncomfortably so.
We loved our second meal at Bella Monica. Everything has that real Italian taste even though the wedding soup was not as good as the first time...lots more broth with less flavor. The meatballs in it were excellent. We will continue to stop there anytime we travel north from Wilmington.
Food and service were excellent. I had the spinach shells, they were smothered in cheese and red sauce and completely delicious! Red sauce is fantastic!
