At 6 pm we arrived again and were told there was nothing available until... More

The restaurant was transformed from a day time beach feel to a very nice, elegant yet casual Italian restaurant at night. The food was excellent, service was great and there was a huge variety! We have some very picky eaters and there was something for everyone!

The Bella California restaurant is "The" place to go for a awesome breakfast. Whether ordering from the menu or selecting the buffet, the food is top-notch. The omelette bar was fantastic. The wood fired pizza was also very good.

There was two of us. I had the ravioli and my dining partner the shrimp fettuccini. Mine was good but there was only 4 pieces of ravioli and the fettuccine seemed undercooked. Beautiful atmosphere but we seemed forgotten once we were served and had to wait and finally ask for our check.

There were so many choices for meals, but my favorite was the breakfast buffet. I easily got into a habit of fresh omelets and mimosas. The omelette cook was super!
