The service was uneven---served my wife's salad before mine came and then my Ceasar salad was drenched in dressing. Only ate half of it. Also took a long time for the main courses to arrive which was awkward because the other couple did not order any appetizers.

Our friend ordered the Paglio e Fine pasta which was loaded with vegetables and did not look appetizing at all. We are Italian and have lived in Italy so we know that traditional Paglia e Fieno is a simple dish, like most Italian cooking. Casa Bella should skip the vegetables.

Food was good
But our waitress was not friendly and no patient
She does not even know what we were order. And provide us the wrong bill. We have been asked her to correct the bill for 3 times. Very unhappy face from her
I have been to this restaurant many time in the past and service/food were good
But with this special event (birthday), my family did not enjoy it at all
We understand it is holiday season, all the restaurants are super busy. At least, put on your smiling face when you go to work

An excellent dining experience all around, starting with many menu options and a large number of daily specials. I had one of the specials, a smoked pork chop with a brown sugar sauce. The size of the chop was huge and every bit as delicious as it sounded. My dining companions said their meals were just as delicious. Other reasons why we thoroughly enjoyed Casa Bella were the excellent complimentary bruschetta, good (and crusty) table bread, and - always a sign to me of a restaurant that cares - thoughtful, different, and well prepared veggies and potatoes/pasta.

The shared appetizers and desserts were also top quality, the prices very reasonable for both the quality and quantity of food, and the service was some of the friendliest and most helpful we've had in months.

We've been here before, we'll certainly be back.

Food and service is always excellent. The noise level can be difficult at times if you are sitting in the wrong spot. The tables are not too close, but the voices from other tables travels especially when the people speak louder than necessary.

This is the second time I booked through open table with this restaurant only to be told I had no reservation. I showed my confirmation and was treated as if they were doing me a favor by seating us. I was told, “next time call”.

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.

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.
