This is an Italian restaurant with very good food and competitively priced. Jimmy was our waiter on the 2 occasions we ate there. He was excellent and makes an excellent Spanish coffee!

Excellent meal overlooking the ocean. I had the scallops and shrimp alfredo pasta. Best view, on the water.

We were not too happy about having american style Italian food instead of having authentic Mexican food available to the guest.

He had a horrible time ever getting the waiters attention to refill drinks or even order. Sometimes we got up ourselves to get something. Then they would suddenly appear. Food was okay, but nothing outstanding.

Just the two of us, waves gently hitting the shore, nothing on our minds but pleasure. Good service, good food, good prices. How spoiled do you want to be ?

Sunny, the waitress, was wonderful. She greeted us each visit with a warm smile and was attentive to our needs. She was prompt and courteous and always made us feel like family when we dined. She really made our daily meals a treat.

How the chef can put his name on the menu I can't figure out. The only thing they make that is good is a pizza. We were here for 2 weeks and never had anything good. Most of it was totally unacceptable. Cold mushy lasagne obviously made ahead, frozen and warmed over. The portions are small. How hard is it... More

Unfortunately due to time constraints, we were unable to enjoy this restaurant for dinner, but it was very popular by what I could see. However, we did enjoy the breakfast buffet every morning and it was most enjoyable. There was a plethora of offerings from the typical fare of cereals, pancakes, eggs, meats, breads, and fabulous sweet fresh fruit, to... More

This restaurant is one of the best things at the resort. It overlooks the beach and ocean. We enjoyed sunrise while eating breakfast. Evenings were warm so eating at 8 or 9 pm was pleasant. Dinners were both delicious and beautiful (which is why Chopped would be proud of them). We ordered something different each night and enjoyed them all.... More

Description
One of Cabo's most beloved chefs, Emanuele Olivero has brought his thoroughly authentic regional Italian specialties to Bella California for your enjoyment on the terrace directly above Medano Beach. A romantic moonlit dinner across from the famous Arch is unforgettable and will be a highlight of any trip to Los Cabos. Also open for buffet and a la carte seaside breakfasts and lunch, featuring the chef's fantastic pizzas from the brick oven.
