    Everything we ordered was super delicious and the service was par excellence. Shout out to our wonderful, warm, friendly server (I’m not sure how to spell her name, could be Kiri). She made the whole experience so special

    We had a terrific experience at Bella Trattoria on Saturday night. Excellent food, great wine list and friendly and efficient service. This was our first time at Bella Trattoria and we will definitely return. The pastas were outstanding, and are made in house. We also enjoyed several other courses of soup and appetizers.

    Found this gem on Yelp and it was amazing. The restaurant was intimate with low lighting. Our server Kitty was awesome and gave great recommendations. The gnocchi and chicken cutlets were delicious! The deserts and drinks were icing on the cake.

    The vibe was that of a neighborhood favorite. The servers were knowledgeable and proud to be part of the whole experience. The server’s suggestion to try her favorite gnocchi with Gorgonzola sauce was perfect. None of us could imagine a better version of gnocchi. They were light as a feather and the sauce was a perfect balance between the cheese and mushrooms. The house Caesar was awesome and simple. The lasagna was amazing, and the pastas ordered by two at our table were also fabulous. We will definitely return!!

    Service was outstanding. Nice atmosphere of a small family restaurant. Delicious food. Only problem was the wine by the glass order. I only drink Chanti for it’s body and smooth profile. What they served was too harsh for me. Kudos to the staff and the chef. Everyone in my group had a very good time. A grand experience of being transported to Italy.

    We loved Bella Trattoria, went there for lunch yesterday and one of the best porchetta sandwiches I’ve ever had, seriously. We also had several great pasta dishes which were excellent. And the minestrone soup was fantastic. Our server was very friendly and did a great job. Overall, this restaurant is a winner, will definitely be back soon.

    Service was excellent! The happy hour bar was a great deal and a nice way to ease into a relaxing meal. However the food was okay - my partner's ravioli was undercooked and we were a little suspicious of the shrimp in the gnocchi after both feeling a minor stomach ache that evening. Small portions for the price, but we loved the romantic atmosphere for our anniversary dinner.

    Salad was fresh and properly dressed. Meatball appetizer, when coupled with the salad, makes a suitable entree on its own, and they're delicious. Hangar steak was cooked just as asked, was tender, and the gorgonzola sauce was just the right touch - not too overpowering. The room was cozy and inviting. The bar area was closed but looked very comfortable as well. The service was excellent - Gian-Luca (sp?) was extraordinarily pleasant and really efficient. This restaurant which we tried on a whim was a true find - we were completely and pleasantly surprised!

    Delicious food! They have an outdoor patio that was slightly chilly, but the heat lamps helped. The service was great until the end, when it took some time to get our check. Overall, great restaurant though and looking forward to coming back!

    Cute intimate date night spot! We ordered the rigatoni and osso buso. Personally, we both preferred the rigatoni but the osso buco was good too. Also you have to order the tiramisu - soooo yum!
