If you like true Italian food you will love Bella Malano. It is a true Italian experience...from the decor to the wine to the pasta to the decadent desserts...Bella Malono is the only place to have it all.

A group of ten of us had dinner on the patio which is always a delight. The service was very attentive and understanding when it took over thirty minutes for all of to arrive.

Bella Milano is pretty bad. Everything is always watery. Why would a plate of pasta and chicken be sitting on a puddle of water? Maybe they don't have any colanders in the back...

Bella Milano is always our choice for relaxed dining in a pleasant atmosphere with really good food. Service is always excellent. A few times when we've had issues, they've always been immediately taken care of. My only complaint is that they have shortened the hour for their "early bird" menu without any notice, so we missed it by 5 minutes... More

The food was ok at best. The sauce on my penne had a weird flavor and it was really watery. My son got a pizza and it was ok. The calamari appetizer was not cooked enough and was a bit soggy.

Service is top shelf and the food is always very good, I like to order all over the menu and have never been let down, this is one of, if not, best around. My last steak dinner there was so good I had to write this review. This is fine dining at its best.
