My wife and I use to always love eating at Bella Notte. On our last visit, April 2016, the beer selections have all changed. No more domestic beers. Only local microbrews. The waitress said they were all local since the restaurant is local. But there was a beer from Germany and one from Italy. Microbrews....a reason to charge you double... More

40 plus runners gathered in town to Run The Bluegrass half marathon. This place is quaint and offered up great service. Because of the size of the group we had a pre set menu of options and we're on the enclosed patio. All food came out timely and was great. Service was friendly and worked with our group to ensure...

Average Italian fare reliable for a tasty meal, with efficient service at an inexpensive price. Good for families, date nights and lunches. Overall pretty good.

From the moment with walked in, the smell of garlic and the sounds of Sinatra, set the stage for a memorable meal that was well worth the very reasonable price. The food was imaginative, freshly prepared and excellent, bottles of wine were half off and the service was spot on.We'd certainly make it a priority to come back to Bella... More

Bella Notte is a very good Italian restaurant. It has really good food and service at a reasonable price. We were there on a crowded Saturday night. There was only one open space in the parking lot. Getting to the lot/restaurant can be a little tricky. Not the first time we’d been there – we’ll go back.

We were visiting colleges and I found this restaurant on Open Table. I am glad we had a reservation as the restaurant was very busy on a Thursday night. Our food was delicious. Everyone liked what they got. The italian bean soup was delicious. And my oldest daughter would go back for the chocolate souffle. There is limited parking and... More

We were looking for somewhere to get a quick, easy, quality meal our first night visiting Lexington, and came across this place. Hands down, could not have asked for more! The waitstaff was attentive and competent, the ambiance was wonderful (the smell of garlic and sounds of Sinatra), and the food was excellent. Not to mention that Thursdays are half-price... More

I’ve visited Bella Notte on and off for the last 8 years, with my latest visit happening in April of 2016. I dine here an average of 30 times a year, so perhaps it’s time to provide my two cents. In a nutshell, it’s an average pseudo-Italian restaurant with a somewhat limited menu and hit-or-miss flavoring for an economical price,... More

We met friends at Bella Notte for dinner, and had a wonderful time. The wines were half price, so we enjoyed 2 bottles of Chianti. We always enjoy the fresh baked warm bread served with spices and olive oil. I had the spinachi penne with gorgonzola cream sauce, and it was delicious. The eggplant parmesan was also a hit at...

An Italian restaurant that offers delicious food that is served by very friendly personal. The Italian specialities are very good and close to what can be eaten in Italy. The decoration is very nice and typically Mediterranean. We started the mean with sea food started and took meat or fish for the main course. Food was great and tasty, simply... More
