Service and environment were very good. Only complaint was the shrimp scampi. It didn’t taste like anything. We asked the server for more scampi sauce and when it came out it looked like just garlic in olive oil and again didn’t taste like much. The other good at the table was really good. The scampi was just disappointing.
I love this restaurant and our food server was wonderful. The bartender however is just plain rude and unwelcoming. I am in the restaurant business and no way I would have him interact with my customers
This was a great dinner and great atmosphere, Service could not have been better!
Bella Monica has been one of my top 5 favs in Raleigh for many years. I’ve never had a bad experience there. The food is excellent and they have a separate gluten free menu!!! Yay!!! Great wine list! Great service! Great outdoor dining area! I love Bella Monica!
This was my first dining experience here and everything was great! I’ll definitely be going back.
Great food and service! It was so nice to sit outside and enjoy a spring afternoon!
Bella Monica is our go-to, favorite Italian restaurant in Raleigh. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu as they are all good. Tonight I had the meat lasagna (my favorite dish) and a side caesar salad and my wife had a Caesar salad and the Italian wedding soup. Her normal go to dish is the lobster ravioli which is out of this world. Our server was friendly and it was a great all around experience as it always is. They also have a fantastic wine list! Don’t forget to save room for dessert- Our favorite is the tiramisu.
Nice place for a family dinner or date night.
One of the best places in Raleigh area. I loved the ambience, service and food. It’s little pricy though but overall it’s amazing. I go to this place on special occasions, I wish they have the live music on the weekends too.
EveRything was great as always!!!
This was our second time to eat at Bella Monica and it was equally as good as the first. We were seated promptly upon our arrival and the server came quickly for our drink orders. Our food was served promptly and it was really delicious. I ordered the veal based pasta Bolognese, which was very good. Or dinner for three with drinks and tip was $100.
Grest service, great food!
Family dinner for Husband’s birthday. Great wine choices and everyone tried a different dish. All three specials made it to our table. It was very noisy and made for difficultly in conversing.
The complementary cannoli was yummy and just enough for everyone to have a bite!
Bella Monica never disappoints. Food is great, service is always excellent and they always make you feel special.
Best eggplant rollitini & stuffed shells. All the food is so good!
5 of 6 thought all was excellent, One commented that the $4 coffee was kinda pricy and not very good. I loved everything.
The food was delicious !
It is our go to restaurant for our gluten free family members too.
The food tasted so good. Italian aroma and flavor all the way. Enjoyed our visit!
Great food! Loved it!
The food was delicious and our service was fabulous!
Got a last minute reservation for Valentines Day and it was fantastic! The lasagna delicious. We will definitely return.
We love Bella Monica. The food is always excellent. We had a lovely lunch in an atmosphere that allowed for good conversation. We were in and out in an hour easily with time to relax and enjoy. The wait staff gave us good guidance when asked about menu items. At night, we particularly love the bar and the selection of wine by the glass.
Menu has large variety, food is always great, atmosphere is pleasant. Service was very slow and it wasn't even crowded on a Monday night as it typically is.
Great food. Price is fair fir the food quality. Nice wine list
The food was delicious and I am very glad our friends recommended it! Service was great and everyone was super friendly!
Great food and service. Loved our experience!
Too many chiefs and no indians. There were more guys in collared shirts standing around than staff willing to serve. We made a reservation and then were sat right in-front of the door, every time it opened we got a freezing draft. The service was disappointing and the food was lack-luster. We ordered pizzas and salad, wine & beer. We sat for over 1 hour without food, while other tables around us that came in after us were served. We mentioned that is was taking a while and we had to leave soon for a game - and the response was "everyone is headed to the game" rather than helping to expedite the food, or letting us know a timeline. We had a 5:30 reservation and didn't get out before 7. We will never come back.
Always dependable for high quality food and service. Got to say that I was not in love with their homemade pasta for the Mestballs/gravy (red sauce). But meatballs and sauce are delicious.
We had a lovely table of ladies in the room with us celebrating a birthday and they made the experience even more enjoyable. Our table of 6 was handled with no hesitation and no sense of rush, just calm, attentive staff.
Food was delicious and service excellent. We did have to wait a little longer for our entrees than I would have liked but the food is so fresh and yummy. The BrusselSprouts are a must as well as the little Italian tuna stuffed peppers!
Great food and service as always...thanks for continuing your commitment to Quality!
Bell Monica is excellent- The food, service, and atmosphere! I highly recommend this restaurant.
Initially, the service was slow, but improved quickly. Food was good.
The special trout dish was delicious! Always a special treat.
Food and service were good as usual. Had a party of five with reservation and were seated in a very back room that had three tables, all unoccupied. Some people might like eating alone but we enjoy the atmosphere and vibrancy of a busy restaurant. Would prefer to have waited instead of sitting where we did but were not offered a choice. The room was dismal at best. Not a good dining experience.
The ambiance in the restaurant is lovely. The food was delicious and the focaccia bread served prior to the meal was the best complimentary bread I have ever been served. The appetizers did not come out prior to the meal (which was no inconvenience at all to my party) but the manager made note of this and gave us all cannolis to make up for the timing error. Certainly not necessary but proved that great service is important at Bella Monica and we were very thankful for the meal and the staff going above and beyond for their patrons.
I love Bella Monica. Some may think its hard to find in the shopping center as its not blatantly labeled, but its well worth the ambiance and more importantly the food. The staff is incredibly friendly and so is their menu (they cater to food allergies better than most restaurants - check out their website). Its a nice little gem.
It is always great. I am so thankful for the gluten-free items.
Our waitress, Anna I believe, did a great job with service and wine selection.
And manager Ben made sure to check with us, as did one other manager who’s name I did not get.
