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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
