Our hotel receptionist recommended Bella Italia (Bell’ Italia) for the last night of our two week trip to Costa Rica. It was truly a treat. I’ll preface this by saying we are lovers of Italian food and have travelled and eaten all over Italy. We...More

The seafood pizza is the best pizza at this joint. Other ones are OK, nothing that really stands put.. just the prices. Definitely not priced accordingly. I have not tried anything else than pizza at this place.

We were a party of 7 celebrating a birthday and this was the perfect place. Excellent service, excellent food and amazing desserts. All for a very good price. Definitely one of the best italian restaurants in the area.

My family and I all tried four different types of their fresh pastas and loved everything. The sauces were all fresh and amazing, the service was great, even the bibs we all got. There are so many italian resturants or pseudo-Italian restaurants that one rarely...More

We had an awful meal there last week, 21 February. My husband ordered pasta with salmon. The salmon was so dry he had to push it to one side. I ordered pasta with chicken and didn't like the flavour at all. We took it home...More
