Very pleasantly surprised by Bella's. Traditional Italian food with a twist. I had the eggplant parm and they serve the eggplant grilled in thick slices then topped with some tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella. They serve the meal with steak knives! It was delicious and a very clever take. My husband had the antipasto plate and it was also delicious.

We will definitely go back.

We had to wait even after reserving a table ahead of time. Food was ok, a little bland in my opinion and small quantity. Server was nice she gave us a free dessert but we had a hard time hearing her the whole time we were there. They could've also done a better job on decoration indoors for a better ambiance.

We had an amazing experience at Bella Trattoria. I was able to make a reservation for a larger group which many places will not do right now. The seating was very well spaced out and felt very comfortable. The food itself was absolutely amazing. And we were blown away with the price. Overall, it is a tasty and affordable option for Italian food in SF!

Our waiter was just the right amount of attentive and available. The food was a disappointment. The Caesar salad was overdressed, the pasta was oily and not very tasty and the eggplant was undercooked. I have eaten there in the past and something has changed in the kitchen so this was a disappointment.

What a gem of a find! First time dining out with friends in a year and we had an incredible experience. The outdoor seating was comfortable, had nice ambiance, and had adequately distanced tables, with more than enough heat lamps to keep everyone comfortable.
The staff was delightful and really knew their menu and were able to answer all our questions.
Not to mention delicious house cocktails for $5 at happy hour? Unbeatable!
We had between us a delicious Cesar salad, a margarita pizza, the pasta puttanesca (divine!!!), and incredible panna cotta for dessert.
I almost didn’t want to post a review because I want to keep their happy hour all to myself.. but I think we could all use a nice cocktail right now :)

Excellent spot for a warm city day. We had a group of 7 and they were extremely accommodating to our changing times, and even allowed us to bring our own dessert for our celebration. The service was EXCELLENT - super attentive, friendly, and efficient. 10/10 would book again!

The menu was different and the food delicious. Particularly liked the Warm spinach salad - a little more shaved cheese was needed. Parmigiana was great and liked the spinach on top.
We had inside dining and the dining room was a bit and austere but tables 6 ft apart

This restaurant has gone completely downhill. I used to dream about their carbonara- now I would only send enemies to dine there. The host/ most staff were extremely rude - and I quote “well tough , it’s covid”. WRONG THING TO SAY TO A GROUP OF NURSES. There were no signs where to check in and trying to speak to staff members to ask where to go seemed to be more of an inconvenience to them. No one in our party of 5 will be dining there again.
