A group of 8 of us arrived close to closing time & they accomidated us very well. The bread/oil dip kept us satisfied until the food came out pretty quick. Everyone loved their food & we appreciated them staying late.

Great place in Cape Girardeau with a mid price menu. Outstanding service and the food quality is perfect. Love their Lobster Bisque, wonderful salads, pizza, and pasta dishes are some of the best in Cape Girardeau!

My wife and I love to eat here for lunches. Or at least we did before she started a low carb diet. The sauces are rich and delicious, and the pre-meal bread and olive oil dip is sublime. Its very easy to over indulge in any dish here that I've tried, and I always leave full with a little extra... More

Food is delicious. Especially the bread they bring to the table with some oil and cheese. Atmosphere is pretty classy, though the paper on the tables throws off the romantic vibe it could have. But overall it's a winner!

If you enjoy Italian cuisine and you enjoy a nice atmosphere this is the place to have dinner in Cape Girardeau. The wife simply loves this place for it's food and wines. I am not a Italian food lover but I do enjoy it on occasion. Easy to find and parking is on street.

Why go to a chain restaurant when you can enjoy great food in the historic district? Portions are large, the food is prepared one dish at a time.

Been to Bella Italia twice now. Most recently last week. Everything I have always had was very good. Service was fast. And server was friendly.

My best friend and I enjoyed a nice Sunday evening dinner at Bella Italia. She hadn't dined there in awhile. (She said she had forgotten just how good the food and service actually were). They had a new menu, with some of our old favorite dishes, plus some new items. We had a nice evening meal and really enjoyed our... More
