    The gnocchi Gorgonzola was simply delightful. The gnocchi would melt away like cotton candy once I took a bite. Just melting into the heavy sauce. The veal bone marrow was some of the best I’ve ever had. It was the combination of the cheesy bread and parsley capers with the marrow that made it complete, and by complete I mean it all came together in this fatty, salty, fresh bite to die for.

    David and his whole staff were attentive and friendly! My Daughter’s gnocchi was pillowy SOFT and better than my Dad’s homemade version (sorry Dad!)… my hanger steak was perfectly cooked and probably the BEST I’ve ever eaten in my life. We sampled the Bruschetta compliments of the Owner!! And were blessed with a Panna Cotta with berry compote to share at the end of our meal; we were stuffed but ate it anyways LOL! WE FELT SO VERY CARED FOR! Thank you for such Beautiful Service!

    The food and and table service was very good—all appetizers & mai. dishes were delicious and served hot. The potions are generous (rare in SF) so three of us took leftovers home. Atmosphere is very Italian and decor is casual. Would definitely eat here again! The only caveat was the bartender—he seemed unfamiliar with some drinks and hesitated with a mojito which turned out to be not very good. He also didn’t know the ingredients for a traditional gimlet. He tried but his inexperience showed. It didn’t ruin the evening but should be noted.

    We went back a second night during our stay - that lets you know it was great. Owner spoke to use about the food, was Gluten Free knowledgeable and brought out bruschetta for us and a little GF bite of eggplant wrapped mozz for our GF person. The gnocchi is to die for - like eating a marshmallow and the three different sauces I tried were each different and great. Eggplant parm was nice thickness and evenly cooked thru, good portion. Pesto was a little milder than desired but I think my daughter likes it strong. Son had the veal marrow first time and liked it. Also tried the tiramisu and it was creamy and tasty. Great dinners both times. We ate in dining area not bar area so noise was comparable to busy restaurant.

    On a Monday night, still a decently filled dining room and the service was excellent. Our waiter, Gianluca, and the whole staff were on point, very friendly, attentive, but not bothersome. He also helped with suggesting small additions that made our meal much better and catered to our dietary concerns without ever feeling pressured to go with any additions. Will absolutely return and recommend.

    Food overly salty. Did not tell the waiter though. Seemed like the waiter was the only one speaking English. He kept speaking with I guess an Italian accent. Accents does not impress. The food does. The waiter must have noticed how little my wife and daughter did with their entrees. He made it up with extra dessert. Prices slightly higher.

    Had an amazing time at Bella. All our guests raved about it afterwards. The food was great but the service was what made it so amazing. Our server (Luca?) was so attentive. Our bread and water was always refilled. Also had a complimentary panna cotta which was delicious. Overall, definitely would recommend for anyone looking for authentic Italian food.

    we arrived at 5.15 for 5.30 reservations which was perfect because -- Happy Hour! $5 coctails and sangria, wine, etc -- all delicious, plus great appetizers for $5 -- we had the polenta which was $14 once seated for dinner Then we sat for dinner and had gnocchi and gluten free pasta -- both fabulous. My daughter has celiac so it is one of our favorite places --but I think the non gluten free is also great very authentic italian with families who speak italian eating there. Great service, everyone is super nice highly recommend
