While the food rated 4-5 stars, the service was just not too friendly and the prices were Manhattan, not Monrovia. I do recommend the chicken marsala over mashed potatoes and spinach. If only the staff would smile...

Made reservations as this is a new restaurant for a nice girls birthday luncheon. There were very few people in restaurant when we arrived at noon on a Sunday. I was a bit worried... ultimately for no reason. The food was very good as was the service. I would return. We shared the bruschetta appetizer which hands down was exceptional.... More

Probably should not have dined here on a Friday night. Entire main street in town closed every Friday for a market/fair. Parking almost impossible. Bella Sera was mobbed. We ate on the patio where there was "music" - a fellow playing a guitar and singing. Nobody paid any attention to the poor guy. A couple of loud birthday parties and... More

A gem of a place in the heart of Old Town Monrovia, Bella Sera has a pleasant ambiance paired with delicious fare, especially the pizza. If the weather permits, dining on the back patio is a lovely way to spend time.

We've been a few times and always are impressed with the high quality of the food and service. Definite value in there. Evenings are definitely the quiet enough atmosphere for a peaceful date night. Ample free parking in and around OId Town Monrovia in lots around Bella Serra. When weather permits there is also sidewalk and rear patio dining available.... More

Had a family party of nine make a reservation several hours before arrival. I know what you think is coming next. Well, guess again, we were seated right on time with smiles on their faces. I might add, the restaurant was very busy. Service through out the dinner was excellent. Now, onto the food. Surprise. Excellent as well. The table... More

We enjoyed a great lunch with 4 adults and two children (5 & 8). The boys loved being able to build their own pizza and they actually ate the Brussels sprouts. We ordered two pizzas and salad and shared it family style. It was a great lunch.
