La Bella's was able to seat us, but replied that they have tried to contact OpenTable to tell them that seating is now first come, first serve, not be reservation through OpenTable.

La Bella's is a hometown favorite! We were happy to celebrate a birthday there and it was the first time in a year that we ate indoors. Food is always great.

The meatballs in pesto were just ok. The meatballs themselves were very ample, however, the pesto sauce had too much olive oil..the dinner salad Italian dressing was very bland. The service was excellent, as was the wine!

La Bella’s is not accepting reservations through open table right now. Showed up with my party of 10 and was told they were not accepting reservations, but the host was incredible! He found us seats and everything was excellent! The service and the food 👍🏻 Highly recommend 😊

I made a reservation for a group of 14 and when I get there I was told they had no space for me that only on the older side of the restaurant. I made a reservation for that same reason because I like the play area since we had five kids in our group. The gentleman that assisted us could of been more apologetic; he obviously has no customer service skills because he told me that I should of paid in advance if I really wanted that table. Worst customer service ever. And that’s not it when we decided to stay and eat on the older side we were all crammed up within two tables which was very uncomfortable no space to eat whatsoever. I told the male waiter and he said that enough chairs were provided but that was no the point. He brought us cups but one was broken and many were extremely dirty with stains both on the inside and outside. Total rip off not ever going back

We made a reservation & were kicked out of our seating area after 2 hours. We were not aware of the time limit after making the reservation, otherwise we would have booked somewhere else. Our party was kicked out by the manager on duty & she had no care in the world where else we would be seated. My party & I had to sit and hang out by the pool area. Very disappointed with how everything turned out. Will not be booking a reservation here again. Especially for a special day since there’s a time limit and manager was rude.

It was very loud and crowded which led to us be neglected a bit. The waiter was nice. The calzone has lost its flavor. It was burnt on top and the ingredients were bland. The wings however were delicious!! I still like this place, but perhaps not during rush hour.

I was so dissapointed...i have always shown up without reservations to la bellas. But this time to be fair i decided to reserve for 7 people. Thought it was easy and fair enough. We got there at 1;45 told the young lady i had a reservation for 2:15 she looked at the list did not see it but said no worries we will fix it. I said we were going to play pool buy a couple of beers in the mean time. So it was 2:20 when i headed back to register. Patiently waited in line and when i asked... nobody knew anything not even that i reserved a table. I even had my confirmation on screen shot. Well after a while the owner sat us next to a party it was a good table. He said no worries I will bring you a menu. We waited and nobody brought us a menu .then i asked my son to get me a menu. Then we waited for a waitress. Needless to say my mother in law was upset she went to register to complain and then finally someone shows up to our table to take our order...the excuse sorry we usually dont have people ordering off menu at this table. Its usually reserved only for parties. Well why sit me there. Like i said all these years at la bellas and never had i ever experienced such bad service. So dissapointed. I love this place and now my husband said i dont want to come back here...i felt upset.. our 7th anniversary dinner ruined.. even though we well spent over 160 dollars . Beer dinner and desersts it was a disappointment. Dont know when we will be back. Especially since la bellas is one of those places that me and my kids grew up on. I hope this will never happen again.
On top of that I wrote this to la bella 10 days ago and they never responded

The service was actually pretty good, but the food was a disappointment. The craft beer was good and actually was a good value. But the pizza and the pasta were quite disappointing.

We had a reservation for 10 to celebrate the end of the school year. Upon arrival the table was set up and ready to go. Our waiter was extremely attentive and prompt to refill the water pitcher and (with the help of bus boys) quickly cleared used dishes from appetizers & salads to make room for the pizza and other entrees. There are plenty of video and other arcade games and pool tables to keep folks entertained after dinner. While I didn't drink any adult beverages on this particular trip, in the past I've enjoyed some bubbly refreshments at La Bella, and the selection is fine. Overall, you can't go wrong here!

I requested the check because your baby was ready for her nap and had to wait 45 mins, I informed the manager and still had to wait. It was ridiculous, the worst service I have had. It’s seems they care more about having people in there restaurant than how they treat customers. Service was terrible I will not be returning.
