Great food, great service, great entertainment. Finally, a nice locally owned establishment. The waitress recommended the lobster risotto which was delicious. The jazz duo ( piano/ drums) were great to listen to during after dinner drinks. Very nice ambience added to a very pleasant night out. Highly recommended.

Third time my family has been here and it is always a treat. Nice interior, not gaudy, but classy. Great menu, good variety and usually nice specials. A gem in this part of the town, well worth the visit

Glad we went and will go again....Prices good and service excellent...Food very tasty....BUT...when googled and searched the Sunday Brunch comes up as a "buffet"...There is an "unlimited" Omelette Bar ($8 or $3 add on) but very limited in "ingredients" and not what we expected as far as what a Brunch Buffet is....Enjoyed thoroughly but just a heads up!!

In the summer, I wrote a stunning review for this restaurant. However, the past two times I have been here, I have been very disappointed. The service was awful. By the time we got our food, it was obvious it had been sitting out and reheated. My son's french fries were hard and cold. My pasta dish was hot in... More

For years I drove past this establishment never giving it a second thought...than one day a co-worker suggested we go for lunch. What a treat. Great food at a reasonable price. The owner and staff greet you like you're family.

Most recently I had a business dinner at the Bella Costa in Oct 2016. I average one business dinner there per month - which confirms how much I like it! They offer a broad Italian menu with both traditional and more modern style choices. I especially like that they offer both "full-portion" and "tapas" style portions. Again, I have eaten... More

This chef owner restaurant, in a strip mall, has 2 rooms. The front room has more of a tavern atmosphere as there's a bar & TV in the room, although there are black cloth napkins. Everyone was seated in the front room when we were there. The back room looks more like a traditional restaurant & appeared nicer to me.... More

great food, large portions, friendly service, between courses was a little slow - if you're in a rush to see a show or something (we weren't) but it was great!

For the area, this place has a surprising, beautiful, classical decor. The wait staff is very friendly and made excellent recommendations. The food is classic, hearty Italian fare, and even though it takes a little while to show up, it's worth the wait. Definitely give it a shot if you're in the area and feel like Italian.

food was good, The wait was too long. We had a new waitress who had no idea of what she was doing. I waited 1 hour for my meal. The other 3 people in my party were all done when I got my meal
