We found the food and service to be excellent. The staff was very accommodating and attentive without being overbearing. We had a great dinner in well designed environment. The food was reasonably priced. I definitely recommend and will revisit in the future.

I chose this restaurant for my 1 year wedding anniversary dinner. We are new to the area and were looking forward to trying this restaurant. It did not disappoint. Our server Jake provided amazing service. Their Italian food is very good; fresh ingredients, flavorful, and cooked well. My wife and I will definitely be back here in the future.
Not a bad looking restaurant, but it could benefit from a refresh.

Made reservation for 2, and they placed us in a tiny table right next to the cash register. There was plenty of room to put our small table somewhere else.

We had the honey ginger calamari to start which was delicious and for an entre I had the veal saltimbocca which was good but had me searching for the prosciutto but overall was very tasty and we also had the stuffed ravioli with lobster in a vodka sauce and that too was very tasty.

We were traveling to NYC and stopped overnight and found this wonderful place. The food was great; the bean and escarole soup was amazing in particular.

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!!

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!

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!

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.
