Thank you Bella Trattoria for the great service and great food. We appreciated that our servers were on point when asking if we wanted more wine/water or if everything was ok. Some restaurants ask too early or too late.
All 7 of us especially the (2) birthday girls enjoyed our time there. We'll be back.

The place overall was amazing. They sat us in a private little area, the lighting was dim so very romantic. The food was absolutely delicious, I can’t say it enough. The waitress even brought us free desert. This place was more than I expected. We loved it.

Food was under-cooked - pasta was pretty much raw.
Flavors just seemed a bit off for Italian food but maybe I'm a harsh critic because I'm Italian.
Seemed quite expensive for sub-par food.

Multiple people have suggested we try this place. We finally booked a table last Friday. And there is just nothing good to report. My wife and I travel frequently to Italy, and we make a point to try basically every Italian restaurant in town. From the appetizers to both of our pasta dishes, the execution was simply poor. I had a gnocchi dish and my wife had the carbonara. The flavor, texture, and presentation of everything was just off and bordering on amateurish. In the general area, you have a number of superior options, including Fiorella, Pizzetta 211, and Sociale. Go there instead.

Made a reservation at Bella Trattoria and was given a table at the Osteria next door. The two are NOT the same. Very disappointing and the service was amateurish.

We stopped by for a later dinner as we were passing through SF on our way home. Our three kids were with us and I was nervous about the reception we might get. Bella Trattoria was definitely the right place to enjoy a meal for our only night in SF. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The kiddos had a wonderful time and it was a perfect meal to end our trip.

Bella Trattoria was wonderful! It’s not you’re typical Italian menu, (i.e. spinach gnocchi) but absolutely delicious nonetheless. The service was friendly, knowledgeable and quick. The portions were slightly on the larger size, but make for great leftovers. I would highly recommend this place for someone looking for great Italian food. Definitely returning. And make reservations!!!

Excellent pasta dishes and friendly service. Went with my dad, wife, and sons family. Little kids are welcome. Wine list bottles were a bit steep in price but excellent. Awesome bruschetta too.

So yummy- just started out with bread that was out of this world! Reminded me of my great grandmas bread. Then the polenta was the most amazing flavors! I could go on and on, will be back.

This place never disappoints. Came from SCal for the weekend and couldn’t miss dinner here. My husband had the butter nut squash gnocchi and said it was the best gnocchi he ever had. This is truly a neighborhood gem not to be missed!

Our expectations were modest, but our experience was outstanding. This is a neighborhood gem, within walking distance of our home. We will definitely be back, often. I had a linguini dish with slow cooked pork in a cream sauce that they called “osso buco.” Technically a misnomer, but sublime. My wife had the dinner sized antipasto and was equally enthusiastic.

Good food and service for dinner; however, they continued to turn down the lights multiple times. I figure it must be for ambience but at one point it was so dim it was difficult to even read the menu.

TL;DR no need to dim the lights to set the mood, the food and service speak for themselves.

Although we had to wait quite some time for our table despite a reservation, the service and hospitality shown to us made up for it. Our waitress was terrific...friendly and genuine and patient explaining the menu. The manager was apologetic and came to check on us a couple times. We appreciated being treated like we were special customers. Wish SF had more places like Bella!

We went here for my wife's 40th birthday, just the two of us. This is some of the best handmade pasta we have ever had. The gnocchi are tiny pillows of sumtuousness. The pappardelle were a perfect al dente Everything was just amazing. Highly recommended for a lovely romantic dinner.
