I love this place!! Great food, nice vibes, always clean and the wait staff is very attentive. The tomato & chicken soup is amazing! I've never liked tomato soup ever in my life until I tried it here. The "Veal Valdosta" is everything! It's always busy so make a reservation. You wont regret it!

This was our first visit to Bella Notte and we drove two hours to get there. The service was outstanding, as we were seated immediately, served quickly and the server went above and beyond to take care of us. The food was delicious from the appetizer to dessert, and I felt the price was fair for what we ordered. The... More

Wait service was great. It used to be a regular place of ours to eat. The last time I was there I got sick as "..." I called restaurant next day, when I could so they would know and make sure whatever food was checked out so others did not get sick. Management, who did not want to even talk... More

First time eating here and was happy I was able to make a reservation with ease on open table. We were seated under the tree with lights and it was such a nice meal. Will 100% be back.

Bella Note is a favorite of my wife and mine. The food and service are always great. The other night we tried to go with four other friends and couldn't hardly hear each other talk. We were seated on the porch and it was way too loud. It is best for couples.

A fan of Bella for years, it's been great to see both the usual favorites as well as the refreshing seasonal items they offer. Always a favorite! A local mainstay before 'local' was cool. Here's to many more years to come!

Thanks for making our celebration so special. Great food, service, and atmosphere! The waitress even put the Birthday cake I made in the back until dessert time and brought it out with a candle lit for my daughter. So sweet!

My wife and I tried Bella Notte for a "date night" and while we weren't disappointed in anything at all, it was average Italian food. The service wasn't bad, the food was good, the menu wasn't anything special. The atmosphere was a bit unique but not super comfortable. We would probably return, but we would also look to try something... More

1/12/2017 Calamhud (Calamari) for both of us was delicious for apps. My better half had the Chicken Marsala which she enjoyed. I had the pleasure of the Seafood Linguine which also was good, Service was a little slow
