Great fish stew, a tasty version of Cioppino. Lot of mussels, clams, shrimp and scallops

Was there at opening. Excellent service although staffing did seem low. Complimentary bruschetta, good wine. Trout lacked flavor. Soup was excellent; they say serving is for two but sufficient for four! Panna cotta was excellent. House made vermouth was awesome! Second time there over the years when visiting SF.

We came 10 minutes before our 7:15 reservation and were asked to wait out in the cold. We were not given a menu, at first, since they thought we could use their QR Code. When we did order they brought the salad appetizer and gnocchi at the some time so I had to ask them to hold the latter. The salad dressing was somewhat viscous. The gnocchi ala sorrentina came in a sauce which was supposed to me meatless but I could taste the pork in it and it seemed to have sugar added to balance the salt content. The gnocchi themselves were tender, one of the few things that were OK. The place was quite noisy certainly not my choice for a quiet birthday dinner. Our server was attentive. Bu that night we both had stomach cramps that lasted through the following morning. Overall, a disaster.

Our favorite little Italian place! Pillowy gnocchi, perfectly seasoned bruschetta, amazing texture and flavor on the Arancini, cotaleta is perfectly crisp with fantastic flavors with the arugula capers and lemon

One of the top Italian restaurants I've been to in SF. The Caesar salad, gnocchi, and tiramisu were amazing. We sat outside and the parklet was nice and warm, but a little noise from Geary. Definitely recommend

Everything was amazing at Bella Trattoria. We (party of 2) sat indoors, which had great ambience and mood lighting. Our server, Felipe, did an excellent job of recommending the food to us and even described how each dish was made. He was super attentive and always made sure that we were taken care of. We ended getting the meatballs (super flavorful and juicy), gnocchi ragu (they didn't lie when they described them as soft pillows), and the carbonara (made the traditional way, great flavor and not too heavy). For dessert they give us a panna cotta with berry compote which was the perfect end to our dinner. Would highly recommend if you're looking for quality pasta and great service!

I wanted to try Bella Trattoria in the Richmond district, because I live in North Beach and was tired of eating at the neighborhood NB restaurants. Our group of four seniors decided to order dishes to share (family style). We shared appetizers ... ANTIPASTO MISTO (large) and Arancini rice balls. Since it was Friday we all decided to have fish. To complement our main entree TROTA AL FORNO (Whole Roasted Trout, Sauteed Spinach), we ordered a pasta entree of GNOCCHI GORGONZOLA (to share for 4). Since it was Friday we all decided to have fish. As full as we were, we ordered Tiramisu, 2 Gelato, Raspberry Limoncello Tart and coffee. Our family style dinner was outstanding, the service staff was very nice and provided suggestions to our choices.

We went early and the place was empty but there was a line as we were leaving. They are accommodating and sweet about food allergies, and even made something off the menu instead of bread. The entres were great, and Happy Hour wine was a great deal. Nice service, too! Would definitely go again.
