We found this wonderful little Italian restaurant on restaurant.com. We did not know what to expect! We were greeted by the owner Nick! He brought us to a back room and turned on Sinatra music. We ordered Pasta with meat sauce for my husband and chicken Picatta for me. We were served a large fresh salad with lots of greens... More

This is a pickup/eat-in standard "fast food" pizza joint. The pizza was as promised and on time for pickup. I wasn't very impressed with the lack of a smile, but maybe it had been a long day. Pizza was good, not great. Probably won't return.

The pizza is great, as are the fries and authentic cheese steaks. When they tell you 20 minutes, get there in 15, or your fries will be cold. This place is a staple for my family on Friday nights; where else would you go?

I am writing about the Bella Italia, Pottstown location. I have to write it here because, shockingly, the Pottstown location's reviews have mysteriously disappeared. This is about the owner of both locations, so it applies... It's terribly unfortunate. We've been dedicated customers 2x/month, if not more, since the Pottstown location opened. Every meal was a minimum of $30 (plus tips),... More

Your typical pizza joint. I come here with my kids usually for lunch. You can spread out in a booth and not feel like you are bothering everyone else. The pizza is good but they do a nice cheesesteak. There is a good selection of alcoholic drinks for sale.

One of the best pizzas I've ever had. Fresh ingredients, the sauce was delicious and the crust was perfect. Next time I'm in the area, I will stop by Bella Italia

Their food is DELICIOUS, reasonably priced and quickly served. It has that old school, family-owned Italian Pizza Shop feel! It wasn't our first choice when deciding where to go to eat. But, after our visit, I can't wait to go back!

After hearing so many good things about their pizza we finally decided to try it. We mostly liked it. The quality of the toppings was quite good. Yes, it was a little greasy but I actually like that. The big problem was that the crust was so thin it was soggy. The pizza was not undercooked at all but the... More

Bella Italia is a decent neighborhood Pizza joint in a small plaza just off the main street (Lancaster Avenue) in Ardmore, PA., on the Main Line west of Phildadelphia. The decor is bright with faux everything, including the faux tiffany lamps. It seems clean enough and the Pizza is fairly thin sliced with a good cheese and decent sauce. But... More

Maybe the other people who gave reviews have never eaten pizza before because this was the worst I have ever had. There is no more to say, it was just really bad food. There were six people in our party and we had two pies- all thumbs down. One pizza was supposed to have tomatoes on it but came with... More
