Bella Monica might not have great atmosphere, but the solid Italian dishes and diverse menu will offer something for everyone in a group. The food will not disappoint.

Favorite Raleigh spot for authentic Italian food! Always greeted warmly and provided attentive service. Consistently excellent food with great wine selection and daily specials. Make reservations, this place is almost always packed!
