If you're looking for good traditional Italian food and good service, head to Bella's. The portions were large, the food was really good. They were very accommodating as we asked to make changes from the menu - no problem. Would definitely return

I think tripadvisor needs to know the restaurant's correct hours of operation. Bella's in Banner Elk is closed between 2:30-4 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. On Sunday they are open from 12-9

This isn't really a question, I guess. I just think it should be changed for travellers' convenience
We are members of the Westgate Vacation Travelers. Will that qualify us for a nicer room than others who are not members?
