Excellent food, small friendly environment. One of my favorites! Skip lunch and go early for a very affordable $15 three course meal. You won't be sorry that you did! Lasagna is my choice.

My husband and I met two friends for an early Sunday dinner and had a very satisfying dining experience. We did not have reservations and there were two large parties being held in this relatively small restaurant, but we were seated and enjoyed ourselves, The restaurant offers a $15.00 special from 4-5:30 p.m.. It is a BYOB, so we brought... More

We returned to Bella Sogno recently on a snowy Sunday night and we were not disappointed. Our entrées ranged from pastas to chicken and fish and all were very good. They honored two special requests without any fuss at all. Downsides- there was only one server who was trying to do her best with several tables and a large party... More

We had a reservation for a particular table but hostess didn't really know about that request - but we were seated promptly, given menus, immediately had specials read and asked what we wanted. We choose to sip wine for a few minutes until we are ready to look. No problem- but the waitress was very unfriendly and this casts a... More

We had dinner here last evening and the pasta dishes were wonderful. My husband and I just got back from 2 weeks in Rome so there was some tough competition!! Atmosphere was intimate and lovely. The only complaint was a slightly surly server. We did not have a reservation but went early enough so we didn't expect a problem...maybe that... More

I just reviewed this restaurant about five weeks ago and gave it four stars. That positive experience brought me and three companions back several weeks later. Well, our experience this time was the exact opposite. Last visit, the food was great, but the service was not. This time, the service was fine, but the food was most definitely not. In... More
