Service was very slow. Server came over for the first time after sitting for 15 minutes and said “are you ready to order” before saying hello or giving us water or anything. None of the food was very good.

Amazing!! When I feel like Italian food this is my spot. The food is always on point. I highly recommend casa Bella if you are looking for good Italian food. The people there are always so pleasant.

Mother Daughter trip to NYC. Our best meal on trip was Casa Bella in Little Italy. Very attentive server. Perfect for my teenager to get pasta and lots of bread! I had lobster ravioli and it was great!!

We ate outside, our request and was great seating but it’s Little Italy and the road traffic is right there’s
Service was very good, food was fine but in all my years of dining out; have never incurred a charge of $14.75 for a spinach, or any vegetable side for that matter. It is NYC.
Wines by the glass $14.00 so you may want to check out the menu before you visit.
With so many of our regular Little Italy spots being pushed out; have to keep trying new places, this will be one.

Bustling dinner spot with great food the restaurant was packed but staff was attentive and timely. Food was delicious. I ordered the gnocchi, which melted in your mouth. Inside decor wasnt very fancy if you're looking for a romantic evening but if you're just having a night with friends or family, it's fine. Portions were much bigger than I've seen at upscale italian restaurants!

Horrible service especially since I noticed that they put all colored people to be seated in a different area and I have video to prove it. Never again will I spend my money in this place! Not to mention that they tried to seat us next to garbage until I said something

MASSIVE BAIT & SWITCH RESTAURANT EDITION
The only reason why I went here is because I had an open table rewards, which is a pre-filled MasterCard gift card.

This restaurant, although listed as an opted in restaurant to the rewards program said they don’t accept the rewards.
I ended up paying for the whole bill, when I should have only paid half. I wouldn’t have gone here if I would have known that. Why? When there’s a restaurant down the street offering free wine and sangria.

Spoke to open table customer support who said that this restaurant is fully aware they are opted in and they lose no money from this since it is as good as any other master card gift card.

The owner said they don’t type in credit card numbers. Bad Business. Little Italy is too competitive to have bad Business and all I could think about was how many other people this has happened to... DONT GO THERE IF YOU HAVE A REWARDS!

In all fairness, service was great. Loved my server, so I made sure I gave him a good tip and the food was good.

I wouldn’t go there again based on principal. But being a New Yorker, this just shows you why people are always wary of things, because these types of incidences happen.

We were freezing! Too cold to dine outside. Our legs and feet were frozen! They had the heaters going but they were so tall that it didn’t reach our bodies while we were sitting.

At the moment they only have outdoor dining, although they place a heater next to the table (but if you don't like cold weather very much, for now it is not recommended that you book there).

The attention was excellent, everyone was very friendly.

The food was great, as an appetizer we ordered "SPIEDINI ALLA ROMANA OR MOZZARELLA IN CARROZZA", as a main course we ordered "RIGATONI ALLA VODKA and PASTA VERDI FRUTI DI MARE", everything was extremely delicious.

We loved the Tira-Misu and the New York cheesecake with strawberries.

At the moment they do not have Happy Hour.

The only thing we did not like was that due to the little space they have on the street, some of the tables are right next to the people who walk on the sidewalks or they put the tables very close to each other (I had to ask that they put the table that was next to us farther away, since they were not respecting the 6 feet of distance).

Also that due to the limited number of tables, sometimes we felt that they wanted to rush us to leave and be able to assign that place to other people.

All staff wore their mask all the time.

Awesome outdoor dining in Little Italy! They have several LARGE heaters by every table, so it feels so nice and warm. My caesar salad was delicious. The homemade green pasta wish shrimp and crabmeat was just phenomenal! And the tiramisu was perfect. My server Donny was so nice and took wonderful care of me. One of the best Italian restaurants in downtown Manhattan. Will be going back soon!

As soon as I walked into Casa Bella the aromas of peppers and Italian sausages and spicy tomato sauce was everywhere. The wait staff was very professional and the hospitality and customer service was top notch. The Waiter made me feel at home. He was well informed of what was on the menu. And he even showed me the Thanksgiving special with turkey and all. Even though it was Thanksgiving,I was there for the great Italian food Casa Bella is known for. The decor made me feel like if I was in a mediterranean land.
What really caught my attention was the soft lights. Which set the mood for a romantic dinner. Casa Bella is one of the most Beautiful restaurants I have ever eaten in. Now if your visiting New York City. Stop by Little Italy and have lunch or dinner at Casa Bella. Your tastes buds will appreciate it.

This was a great neighborhood gem in Little Italy. Hard to tell about noise level since we are social distancing now. The food was amazing. The recommended dishes like the lobster ravioli are a must. The service as also great. They checked on us constantly, refilled water and wine without asking and did not rush us. I would definitely go back again.
