Benvenuto! Opened May 2017, chef/owner Corbett Monica and his wife, Julie, created this trattoria to become an extension of his Nanas table. A place where the neighborhood gathers to dine and enjoy life. Guests become family at our tables while enjoying recipes handed down from our grandparents. Keeping true to tradition, we make our sauce with San Marzano tomatoes and use only the freshest ingredients available, just like Nana would. Our gravy is so good that we sometimes eat it like soup! Our Neapolitan menu features dishes like thin-crust pizzas made with “00” flour, fresh and dry Pasta, NC Seafood, Local Pork, Chicken and Beef dishes. Without a doubt, we serve the best cannoli you will ever taste! Our wine list features all Italian, hard-to-find selections that are a perfect match for our familys food.
We welcome you to our business, our culture and our family. It is an honor and pleasure to cook for you. Please enjoy our food and the company you share at our table. Mangia bene!

Another great experience! My wife loved the gluten free shells. It’s hard to find good gluten free food and this was excellent. Highly recommend.

Great food and wonderful service. I celebrated by birthday there and they treated me like a queen. Full service bar with knowledgable bartenders. My favorite drink is the Amaretto Sour!

Food was good but a little pricey. Very loud in the dining room and difficult to hear dinner companions. Wait staff interrupted our dinner too often.

Great for smaller business meals. Excellent house bread - beautiful thick focaccia - make sure to ask, it's an experience. Nana's gravy!

Food failed to meet expectations. Seemed rushed and bland, not what I have experienced in Monica restaurants before. Good atmosphere and service, food was disappointing on both app and main courses.

Ive always loved Stellino’s from the complimentary focaccia bread to the hand crafted cocktails. However, I hadn’t been in awhile because I’m now gluten free. When a friend suggested we go, I wasn’t sure what I was going to eat. I was so excited to see that they have a gluten free menu, which isn’t common at Italian restaurants. I had the gluten free stuffed shells and I couldn’t tell the difference from the traditional pasta dish. They were delicious! I’ll definitely be returning soon :)

We were at Southpoint Mall and stopped by Maggiano's, we were told 2.5 to 3 hour wait. Looked for and found a better place with no wait at all. Great food, great time, no wait. Thnaks,

Meet lasagne lacked flavor and had very little meat. We ordered two desserts the seasonal cheesecake and the limoncello cake. It was not until the limoncello cake arrived that we were informed they were out of cheesecake. We will come back and try the pizza , we saw them go out and they looked great.

Great food and atmosphere! We liked everything except the limonchelos. We ordered 3 of them and two were left untouched. I believe the restaurant could take that out of our check since we did not like the drink, but they did not. We told the waitress the limonchelos were missing lemon; and she did and pour little bit but no result.

I have been to Bella Monica before and was curious about their sister restaurant. I was not disappointed. The food presentation, the quality service, and the ambience was beyond what I expected. Much more than your average Italian restaurant! Leave room for the amazing tiramisu! Light and yummy!

Excellent from the focaccia before the meal to our entrees of lasagna and an incredibly delicious GF Chicken Marsala. Our server was friendly and attentive and the manager delivered our entrees and checked-in with us as well. Can’t wait to visit again!

My entree of eggplant rollatini was served lukewarm. I asked them to reheat it to the point where I could see steam to ensure it was hot. It was re-served lukewarm again and I sent it back again. The third time it was finally served hot with some steam coming off the plate. Meanwhile my husband is eating by himself and/or waiting for my meal to be heated. Not a great dining experience but the food was delicious.

We recently went to Stellino’s and absolutely loved it. Our waitress was amazing and so great with our little kiddos. We were a party of 8 to include to little under 5 and we had an amazing time not to mention the food was phenomenal. We are definitely adding this restaurant to our list of keepers!!!!!
