Had Birthday Dinner for friend total experience was outstanding.
Wonderful food and outstanding service. Never have had a bad meal or a bad experience. A favorite restaurant for birthdays and special occasions.
Best martini for sure. Dinner was great and the company was enchanting
The food was delicious and the wait staff friendly and attentive.
Eat here a lot. Always excellent. Great selection and good service also
Unfortunately the stuffed mushrooms had no taste at all and my chicken saltimboca was paper thin disappointing for sure.
The food is always terrific and the staff is always pleasant and attentive. I love this place.
We liked the outdoor dining, food and service was excellent.
Outstanding start to finish. Food server was awesome and checked on our table often but not too much. Food was awesome. I’m from out of town and when I’m in Jersey, this is where I like to go. Very inviting and I haven’t had a bad drink or meal yet!!
Another very enjoyable special occasion dinner. Particularly happy with the service by Drake.
Everyone was professional the food was excellent. They treat you like family.
Our favorite restaurant. Great food, staff and comfort.
I dream about their beef barolo. Seriously amazing food here.
Overall very good, we got the stuffed mushroom appetizer which was a bit lacking but the farfalle smaller portion was perfect
As always, thoroughly enjoyable; friendly staff and great food.
Not one complaint! Food was SUPERB! Service was OUTSTANDING!
Casa Bella all the food was excellent. Waiter's were very polite.
The food is excellent and the service is exceptional.
Overall the food is good. I went to Casa Bella on that day, there was a wedding. It's pretty crowded on the deck for outdoor seating. Also there is no one wear mask at all!
Boyfriend's friends own this place. Amazing good and beautiful outside dining. Highly recommend.
The outdoor deck is beautiful! Service was great, food delicious, and the owner stopped by to check in and see if everything was good. Pleasant conversation about the fresh, never frozen ingredients used to prepare your meals. Hidden gem… will definitely be back!
Very comfortable dining upstairs. Could see the river.
XCLNt good. Just loud.
Food and service was excellent. Can be noisy downstairs when busy. Outside is best if not too hot
Food always excellent. Service can be better, pay attention to all your customers. No matter when we went, always got a crappy table. Hostess is uppity.
Amazing appetizers and entrees. Loved everything.
The service was quick (important during lunch hour), food was excellent and great proportions, and everyone was very helpful. Definitely going back.
Delicious food but ran out of meatballs and sausages!
Amazing our waiter John was spectacular. Prob one of the. Best waiters we have ever had. Made the night and meal fantastic
The food was delicious and the service was wonderful!
The food was outstanding!! A bad thunderstorm hit when we arrived and power went out. They seated us and we waited out the storm. The power came on and went out a few times while we were waiting. We ordered a pitcher of Sangria and our waiter provided us with bruschetta. The power finally came back on and we ordered dinner. The meal was definitely worth the wait. We'll go back and hopefully can dine outside in their beautiful outdoor dining area.
The food was good to very good, but not outstanding. Service was professionally attentive and timely without being disruptive or annoying. The prices are high relative to the overall dining experience. Will go back.
Good food at a good price. Quiet little spot
Truly just a relaxing incredible restaurant! Great service, the BEST Italian food!!!!!! My husband and I love it here
Outstanding food as service would highly recommend
40th wedding anniversary Waiter never informed us of many dinner specials not on menu Never apologized Said he would smack the guy who he said should have told us. Never offered a courtesy drink or anything for anniversary or to apologize for his neglect. After I complained he disappeared for a while. Food was excellent Service was fine except for this waiter.
His tip reflected his performance All he had to do was apologize. Nope. At the end of the meal he said nothing.
My family and I are longtime Casa Bella customers but this was my first trip in a while, due to the pandemic. I brought someone new here and to be honest, was a little disappointed. I am still giving four stars because I know what the experience can be here when things are firing on all cylinders. I will go back, but I’m giving it some time.
It just seems that like many places, demand is outpacing staffing. There was a large private party in the main dining room and all the other tables seemed filled and I just don’t think they could handle it. We were seated upstairs outside (lovely) with one server for about 12 tables and it took a very long time for pretty much anything and our hot appetizers were barely lukewarm (not great for calamari). The entrees and dessert were very good.
Our server was very pleasant and woking hard — clearly circumstances were beyond her control. It seems like the restaurant needs to put a cap on reservations or tables open until they get pacing and staffing back on track.
I have been going to Casa Bella for many years and am never disappointed with the food and the servers are always friendly.
Food was good, service was very slow
Food is always amazingly delicious, staff is very nice too, love sitting outside on the deck enjoying the view of the lake.
