I expected a much better experience after reading all of the good reviews on Tripadvisor! The restaurant is a one of a kind, Italian Restaurant, in a small shopping center. The is ample parking in the shopping center. We were seated immediately. The service was better than average, but I thought the food was very pricey and just ok at... More

The clear strength of Bella Italia is the food. My wife and I were looking for a simple meal out. It was a basic Tuesday night and we were not out for any specific celebration. I mention this only because the atmosphere here is pretty basic. It was fine for a general dinner out but we were glad we weren't... More

This restaurant is the real deal! He makes the pasta himself and everything is fresh and absolutely delicious. So far everything is has always been wonderful...cannelloni, rigatoni with pistachio cream sauce, totelloni with fontina and Italian ham, and the chicken and mushrooms are some of our favorites. We tend to come for a later lunch and it is never busy....I... More

If you're looking for Olive Garden or anything similar, DON'T come here! This is Old World, Old School Italian done RIGHT! It's a very simple décor with classic Italian music overhead. Only wine and Italian beers for alcohol. The pasta is AWESOME! I started with the spinach salad which was lots of fresh baby spinach, fresh mozzarella and prosciutto with... More

This place is very nice. It's small and out of the way. It's like you just walked into a little restaurant in Italy. The couple that own it are from Italy. He does the cooking and she does the serving. The food is very delicious.

SO authentic. Freshly made pasta, especially the mushroom ravioli with a very delicious sauce. Absolutely the best you've ever had.

What a disappointment. Store bought, overcooked ravioli-17$...veal picatta was actually chicken and was way too sour, no other flavors but acid. At first i thought maybe the server put in the order wrong but after receiving the bill, we've realized that they simply ran out of veal and try to sell dry chicken as veal - 19$. I was too... More

The atmosphere is very simple. The service is friendly and timely, not pushy or slow. The food is great and a real treat for Reno. So many Italian restaurants offer mushroom raviolis and everyone thinks the restaurant is special. Here the menu offers SOOOO much more. The Rigatoni Giuseppe with Italian ham with pistachio cream sauce is to die for.... More
