If you are in the San Gabriel Valley area, Bella Sera Trattoria has some of the best Italian food you will find. Located on Myrtle Street, it is right in the middle of downtown Monrovia which gives it a small town, cozy feel. The restaurant...More

While the food rated 4-5 stars, the service was just not too friendly and the prices were Manhattan, not Monrovia. I do recommend the chicken marsala over mashed potatoes and spinach. If only the staff would smile...
