I stopped here for dinner and was really torn as to which dish I should order. My server suggested the pizza. She claimed it was the best pizza on the island. I can't substantiate her claim but the pizza was heavenly. The crust was thin as I ordered and overrun with toppings. Service was as good as the food. I... More

Great food at great prices. Large portions, good food. Luncheon specials for $10.00. Service was excellent. Sandy took our orders, six people. Wrote nothing down and made no mistakes. Everything is made to order so it takes a few minutes longer, but, it is well worth the wait.

I would have given 5 stars-- but we were outside and it seemed like we were waiting a long time for the wait staff. Other than that, we had pizza, wine and beer. It was way above average and delish!!

This little gem is tucked back in a shopping plaza. However, it is worth visiting. Salads are crisp and fresh, pizza is delicious and marina sauce is superb in any dish. I always find time to visit this restaurant when I am in Hilton Head.

We went to back to our all time favorite pizza place and it did not disappoint. Bella has the best pizza hands down!! The crust and sauce are perfection. The salads are fresh, huge and delicious. A nice selection of wine to go with our dinner. You just can't beat this place for a great meal at a great price!

I stop in for lunch fairly often for the terrific value, especially for the slice (really two slices) and a salad. Quiet small place run forever by Tony, the owner- who strongly supports the community and local art scene. Ok for dinner, but lunch is their forte.

All of our dishes were average. The food was not bad but not special by any means. Would I go back? Not with all the wonderful restaurants in the area.

If you enjoy the authentic family owned and run neighborhood hangout, this is your place. The staff is warm and friendly, mostly family too. The food is authentic with excellent pizza and pasta choices. This place is the Italian version of "Cheers" for the locals. Great spot for food and atmosphere.

Red sauce like Nonna used to make, great meatballs, chicken Parmesan, lasagna, eggplant, all the staples of Southern Italian cooking. Dinner includes warm garlic bread and a salad for a VERY reasonable price. Generous servings of wine and beer, also reasonably priced. A real find on an island like Hilton Head! The decor is checked table cloths, classic old Italian... More
