Everything was great. Bartender very personable and knowledgeable on wine selection. Food was amazing.
Great date night, thanks for a wonderful evening!
Fairly tight COVID appointments. But very good spacing in restaurant. Felt safe
As always the service and food was excellent! Went on a rainy Friday night and our other guests were late due to the weather but we weren’t rushed and all was as fabulous as always!!
My favorite Raleigh restaurant. Always delicious.
I was super impressed with the extra thoughtful service from our wait staff person. Since I came from a fasting lab test, she was very quick to bring me bread while I waited for my friend to arrive. I also ordered a pizza to go, to be picked up a few hours later and even had to change the pickup time once. She handled it all beautifully, and delivered it to me piping hot at curbside pick up. Many thanks for a wonderful experience!
Lovely experience although they seated us next to a large party table towards the back so the noise was a bit rough. But the food was delish and we will be bavk
Food was very good. Wine selection wonderful. Our waitress recommended a great wine and the servers did their jobs
The sitting outside only type reservation for a night that was in the 30s was, in a word, ridiculous. We asked for a seat at the bar, and after we were seated outside, they gave the bar seats that came available to someone else! It took over 1/2 hour from ordering to get our appetizers and soups, which came together, followed by dinner 5 minutes later. VERY POOR MANAGEMENT. I dont blame the waitress. We paid $200 to freeze and get our food late and then heaped on us within minutes.
Normally have a great experience but this time was just ok. Just must have been an off night because I normally love the food! I appreciate how great they are with Gluten Free.
Amazing Experience! A restaurant that gets it all right! Food and service was exceptional!
Staff was great. I accidentally booked the wrong date for a party of 9 and they were so understanding and accommodated us! My husband were able to surprise our family members with news of our first baby on the way. Had they not worked with us, the night would have such a bad memory... but the staff and manager made it a great night!
The food and service was excellent. The gravy is lite with great flavor.
Food and service was great!
Fun place to go fir a casual night out.
The atmosphere is very nice and busy. The goid is very good abs worth the cost. The wait staff very nice just need to do a better job with their timing. All of our food including appetizers came out back to back if not at once.
The tiramisu is excellent
Super cute and cozy restaurant. The pizza and salad was amazing!
We've eaten there a number of times. This time we went early so it was pretty quiet. Service was great food great also. Wish their supplier would get back to supplying some of the gluten free shells.
Always great service!
The ambiance was awesome. Very romantic and food was excellent with the best service.
Amazing food and great service!
Very gluten free friendly and all of the food was delicious. A nice choice for our Valentines Day dinner.
Very good food! If you are Gluten free I highly recommend!!
Birthday for partner
As always, delightful and delicious!
I had an excellent dinner out with my daughter. Great atmosphere and fantastic food.
Everything was amazing and the portions were big. I’ll definitely be back
We’ve been going to Bella Monica for almost 20 years!! the quality and the service are always fantastic.. Best Italian in the triangle!
I'd wanted to go to Bella Monica for a long time, based on so many 4- or 5-star reviews. We went for lunch; we sat in a booth that was very darkly lit, so it was hard to read the menu. Now, I'm in my mid-60's, but even so, I've never had that experience before. The lights couldn't be adjusted. I order meatballs for an appetizer to share with friends and the balsamic chicken. The food was okay but nothing to right home about. The bill with tax and tip came to $40. That's a lot of money for lunch. I would not go back.
Made my mom feel very special on her birthday. Server was excellent.
Fabulous birthday celebration for my mom's 80th. The service, staff and food were impeccable. They made us feel warm, comfortable and they catered to all of our needs.
We will not soon forget what a memorable experience we had. Thank You So Much!
Great set up for outdoor dining during COVID! Warm yet plenty of fresh moving air.
Excellent food and service, as always! Love this place!!
Excellent food and service!
Always Great Food!!!
Fantastic meal for wife’s birthday. Our server Jenny was amazing
Excellent food and service. We loved our waitress. 😊
Everything about this place is just okay. Went on a rainy Friday afternoon. There is nothing special here. You can find cuisine, service, ambience anywhere without having to make a special trip.
This was my first time visiting Bella Monica and I was not disappointed. I ordered a flatbread and it was much larger than anticipated with lots of meat and vegetables. The social distancing was safe and I enjoyed my lunch.
Fabulous food, excellent observation of Covid protocol. Thank you for a wonderful evening!
