Bello Cucina has always been a great choice for us, especially when we don't have our children with us. My favorite thing is their flatbreads. My husband usually gets a seafood pasta. The drinks and desserts are great, too. They also have specials frequently, like happy hour prices, 1/2 off wine, and the pasta-made-to-order bar. We will go again and... More

I made reservations for four people one month in advance of a Garrison Keillor performance at St. Benedict College. The performance was at 7:00 and we arrived for our reservation at 5:30. We were seated promptly, but after 20 minutes had not seen a waitress. I informed the hostess and after another five minutes, a waitress arrived, offered no apology... More

Nice atmosphere, Wednesday fresh fixed while you watch pasta buffet, outdoor seating in the summer, and good service. Good selection of entrees. Can be busy at popular times. Nice touches like artisanal bread and olive oil.

The food is wonderful - any item on the menu and the atmosphere is so nice. The small town of St. Joseph is very proud to have this business.

I've never had a bad meal there and the staff is wonderful. Always accommodating. I go there often. I bring friends whenever I need a good place to take good friends.

From reading some of the reviews I was apprehensive about the service. Totally unnecessary! We were seating immediately. Our waitress, Raquel, took our drink orders quickly and ordered our bottle of wine shortly thereafter. We ordered two appetizers, Calamari and lobster something? and they were both excellent. We ended up taking some of this home. My seafood Ricotta? was loaded... More

This now small chain restaurant (several others in Central MN) has a diverse pasta and sandwich menu and some salads and soups with an Italian lean to it. The mushroom and seafood pastas are particularly good. My recent visit found me asking for langostino pasta and I got shrimp. The Ceasar salad is covered with olives so you may want... More

This is the greatest Italian food in St Joe. Their cooks are really excellent and probably deserves a raise but I wish they would have more locally sourced food.
