Great place for lunch. The food consisting of wraps, sandwiches and salads is very fresh and healthy. Noisy but nice atmosphere. Very good deserts also.

There to meet family. What a delightful place. Right in the heart of Kalispell. Decorated nicely and a very friendly place to meet and eat.

This is a great little bistro. The soups are hot and flavorful, and the sandwiches are reliably good. Side salads a plus. I've had several of the sandwiches, including the turkey bistro and I believe a meatball sandwich. The hot chocolate is good too. The only drawback to Bonelli's is that the service can occasionally be slow to minimal. Sometimes... More

Tried their italian sub and it was all bread. Had to take the meat from other half of sub and put on other half to taste the actual meat. Terrible bread and it was thick. The salad side was so-so. No chips available. Better restaurants in Kalispell.

Bonelli's has a trendy fun menu. The soups are always very good and the sandwich selection is top notch.It's also within walking distance of Depot Park and other downtown attractions. They have several gluten-free options and the staff is very friendly and helpful here.

I dined here twice during my 4 day stay in Kalispell. The food is excellent and the menu is diverse. I had the med/meze platter and a turkey club panini. Great outdoor seating options, too. On the minus side: (1) we did wait WAY too long for lunch the first time (over one hour), but the second time was quick;... More

I like that you can sit outside. Food is excellent, service is good. Atmosphere is relaxing. Lunch is busy.

There are not a lot of choices for lunchtime dining and I choose this place when I want something healthy and not too hefty on the wallet. They have gluten free options as well. You order at the counter and can get a glass of water yourself and then the wait can be a bit lengthy. I like the restaurant... More

The food at Bonelli's was always really tasty, but occasionally the owner and some of the wait staff were rude. As for the setting, it's half decent but can become really cramped during peak hours.
