Food was very average. Did not have the wine we wanted that was on their menu. Pricey for what you got.

The only complaint I have is that, because an oven was broken that night, several items were off the menu including all the flatbreads. Great service and food.

We have been to Bella Vino and the food is always good. This time was no exception and we enjoyed the Italian Nachos and Spicy Meatballs, two of our favorites. Cocktails and wine were very good and service was excellent. It was cold and raining so we couldn't enjoy their patio, but the inside is beautiful. While the bare brick walls and wood floor make for a great atmosphere, the noise level can get high if they are crowded. Menu has a lot to choose from and everything we have ever had is always enjoyable.

1. Great tapas served hot, great wines and full bar, great value (and we hit end of Fri Happy Hour for part of our meal). Favorites: the Spanish-style papas, lobster Mac’n cheese, and wine flights
2. Outdoor rented patio tables well-spaced, warmed by LP fireboxes, and weatherproof—we had a very severe thunderstorm and tornado siren. One of the managers briefed diners on the storms’ status twice. He also invited everyone to stay as long as we wanted to wait out the storm—good for another wine round, too.
3. Serving staff all excellent, friendly, helpful, not pushy. Sarah, our server, gets SIX stars (and a great tip) because she was so knowledgeable and spot-on about the menu items and wines; even steered us away from some cocktails we for sure wouldn’t have liked.
4. A totally-great 2-hour evening adventure celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary; and with all the Historic Old St Charles Christmas festivities.

Reserved a table which was in the back in the tented area. There were two blow heaters which we asked three/3 times to be turned on, they never were. Everytime the waitress went by she reminded us how busy it was on the INSIDE. We let it go because we enjoy Bella and have been many times. Upon exiting we mentioned to a GROUP of servers, bussers, and a hostess but they had no response. And, on top of it, looked at me like I was WRONG! I realized later that WE TOO WERE PAYING CUSTOMERS and just because we were in the back, we deserved the same respect, and service, as the inside customers. Very disappointed.

I love tapas, this is the place to come. Small plates are the best way to taste multiple delicacies. We did 10 small plates which we passed between 5 of us. Added 3 desserts to pass between us and we had a perfect meal!
Highly recommend this place! This was my second time in St. Charles eating here and both times have been remarkable.

Everything was incredible from the wine to our starter the Bella bonfire which is a four cheese fondue set on fire table side. It added to our ambience sitting outside by the fire pit. Our server was very attentive Everything was wonderful it will be my monthly choice dining out !

I really want to like this place. The food is excellent. However our service experience has been lacking. I went 3 years ago, loved the food, but bad service. Tried again in October - same thing. Loved the food, but could not get our waitress to visit our table for anything. I actually had planned to order more tapas and dessert, but couldn’t even find someone to get the orders in for us. Our wait went like this:
- 5 minutes to get waters
- 10 minutes to get in our first order
- 20 minutes until our first plate came out
- 40 additional minutes until our next plate came out (it was forgotten)
- 30 additional minutes to get our bill and pay it
- 15 additional minutes for a receipt

2 were there for 2 hours to get bread, cheese and potatoes. Even the front service desk could not help us get our check or find our waitress.

It’s too bad. I want to like this place. I suppose I’ll try again in another 3 years.

Not your average meat and potato or pasta place. Lobster ravioli was beyond delicious as was the salmon special. The Wine Wednesday 1/2 off bottle special was a pleasant surprise.
