Both cocktails we ordered (as seen in the online wine and cocktail menu) were not available This is a big part of the reason we chose the restaurant There were not even any suitable replacements for the Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough NZ.
Service was spotty and delayed. We were going to stay for dinner but after the issues just stopped after cocktails and apps. Meatball app while delicious was woefully tiny.

I love Bella Vino, the beat food in St. Charles. However, at one point the restaurant seemed too crowded and the tables too close together inside. I Was Expecting a little more covid restrictions and not have to worry about the social distancing.

Bella Vino is our favorite restaurant in St Charles. The food, wine, and service is consistently exceptional. This time we had the stuffed dates, nachos, and seafood risotto.

As always the food was amazing. I felt totally ripped off on our drinks. There was 6 of us at our table and ALL 6 felt the same way. $10 for a Manhattan that has maybe 2 oz of liquid in the glass. One glass of wine had maybe 4 oz of wine!!! Will not be going back till they fix this!!

It was our Anniversary and we had a wonderful evening. Our server was very attentive and made us feel special. The wine that was suggested was superb! Our food was delicious!!
The only negative was a party of 6 guests who knew one of the server’s that grew into a party of 13 before we left. Had one particular guest who was loud and obnoxious. You could hear them over everyone else in the whole area. If she had something to say, everyone heard it. Her use of profanity was not necessary. We did our best to ignore her and enjoyed everything else that evening.

My husband and I love Bella Vino! The service is great, the food comes out quickly so you can order the tapas 1-2 at a time and take your time to enjoy it. The atmosphere outside along Main St. Is perfect, especially this time of year with all the fall activities.

The food was good. On Wednesdays some wines are 50% off. The cheese plate was very good. Really liked the crostini and Boursin on the meat and cheese board. On the other hand, we were a little disappointed that our 31st anniversary was not acknowledged by Bella Vino even though it was indicated on our Open Table reservation request.

It was ok at best. Our server was great- attentive and friendly. The appetizer of bacon wrapped dates, while tasty, was obscenely overpriced. The two pasta dishes we ordered- spicy shrimp and spaghetti and meatballs- were not only overpriced for such small servings, but were not at all interesting. The cucumber cocktail was tasty though. We left hungry and unsatisfied. Won’t be back.

Allison was wonderful! We got to sit on the back patio under the string lights and sip our wine. There were a ton of cocktails to choose from and an even more impressive wine list. The food was excellent and tasted super fresh. Can't wait to come back and take advantage of the happy hour!

My husband and I found Bella Vino one day while walking Main Street in St. Charles. We easily made a reservation for our anniversary the next week. We had a great table on the front patio with a view of Main Street and all the passersby. We shared 3 tapas (delicious) and enjoyed the "Mystery" glass of wine. We were pleasantly surprised to discover the back patio. It was at least twice as large as the front one! We will be back.
