Our server, Shannon, was awesome! She kept our drinks filled and the food was delicious!
The food was absolutely delicious! The patatas bravas and the spinach and artichoke drip were standouts! Our server was attentive and they even stayed late while we finished!
Wonderful atmosphere and amazing food. Our server was so fun. She was also bartending and was super busy. She managed to still provide excellent service. Can’t wait to go back
We pass through this area every few years and include this restaurant in our brief stay. It’s never disappointing. The menu is creative, the food is done well and with a nice presentation, the service is attentive—even on a busy evening.
Love this place! Staff is the best!!! The outdoor patio is the best!
A real Gem. Need to experience this restaurant!
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.
Our waiter could have been more pleasant. Acted like he was not having a good time.
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.
Great ladies night out. Perfect outdoor seating and the drinks and food were super YUMMY. Can't wait to go again.
Excellent variety on menu for tapas
A great outdoor dining experience.
Love open table and love Bella vino
We were celebrating two birthdays amongst friends. Celebrating at Bella Vino has become a tradition. We love the food and the choices. We are never disappointed. Hopefully this is a tradition that will last for many years to come.
Wonderful place with a great atmosphere. It is our favorite in the St Charles area
Really good atmosphere! Food was good too
Very nice tapas restaurant located in a refurbished old building, complete with thick millwork and tin ceilings. The wine list was good and I enjoyed a delightful cabernet. The menu is varied enough to suit almost anyone, but not so long that it gets confusing! My seafood risotto was great! And the service was attentive. Nice neighborhood vibe without being too loud.
Various selection for food and wine. The Bella Nachos are wonderful and a very generous potion size.
Great food. Great wine. Great atmosphere. It has quickly become one of our favorite restaurants in downtown St. Charles.
Server, Alex, was charming. Nice spacing on back patio. Enjoyed the menu-it was not typical restaurant fare, many unique choices. I had mushroom ravioli with lobster sauce, husband enjoyed a special spicy bratwurst dip with toasts as well as sliders with bacon.
Wine Wednesday - 1/2 price bottles + Happy Hour Tapas Specials make this one of our favorite ways to spend an evening on the patio. Patatas Bravas, Bella Bonfire, Hummus Trio and Butternut Squash Flatbread were all delicious as usual.
Crostini was bad. Brie was good.
The food is so bad and we barely ate any of it and told our server and we still paid for the food we didn’t eat.
I LOVE Bella Vino! Last night we had one of my all time favorites - chorizo stuffed dates- and they did not disappoint! We also tried the calamari which was very tender and served over crispy flash fried spinach. It was super yummy! Our third food item was the spinach, artichoke, mushroom and tomato flatbread. It was delicious. We paired our food with a bottle of the Gemma di Luna Pinot Grigio.
Enjoyable as always! And our server, Allison, was delightful!
Wonderful as usual!
Not bad, but too many better choices to come back.
Bella Vino is one of our favorite restaurants. Food and service are always consistently exceptional. We had the bacon wrapped dates, mushroom puff pastry, butter nut squash pizza, and gooey butter cake.
Enjoyed our dinner there. Would go back for sure.
We so enjoyed our dinner here. The food was great, the staff was helpful, and the location was perfect for us.
Great as always!
Very disappointing meal.
Loved our dinner. Shared several small plates - the wild mushroom in puff pastry, fried goat cheese, and mushroom lobster ravioli were all outstanding!!
Very good food , cocktails and wine were good . Server was very nice
Great date night with my husband. There was a table of 6 next to us so it was hard to hear each other speak, but other than that everything was great! The food is delicious! Try the calamari with fried spinach! It is the best!
We sat outside which was lovely. Waiter was very attentive. Menu variety is wonderful. We enjoyed a couple of the Tapas dishes to share then everyone ordered their own meal. Great location in Old St. Charles.
Staff were lovely and accommodating and the food was really good. The cucumber cocktail was so refreshing. The back patio was perfect to spread out and feel distanced from other people. We loved the tapas and the shrimp pasta.
Bella vino is a favorite of ours. The food and service is always good, our server yesterday was Tom and he was unbelievable. He was very helpful and attentive. He made our lunch even better.
