My husband and I came here on a Saturday evening about 6:30pm. We were greeted by complimentary valet service. We were asked if we had a reservation because at the time they were really only accepting reservations. We went in and were able to get a "high table" which is a cute, adequate table off the bar, out of the... More

How does one choose what Italian restaurant to patronize in Morris County? Well, my wife choose one of her favorites, Casa Bella, based primarily upon one menu item, Shrimp Fra Diavolo! The food was, as always, incredible. The portions large enough to doggie bag leftovers for the next day. The service was friendly, knowledgable and prompt.

Tried this place for the first time on a Saturday night. It was very busy, but service was adequate. Food was good, but based on the reviews, I had expected something better than average. There are many decent Italian restaurants in the area, and I can't say this one stands out. Portions were a good size, but price was a... More

8 of us went there for a business lunch. Sorry to say I've never been here before. The service and the meal were outstanding. The place is very comfortable. We ordered a variety of the appetizers and passed them around. The entree menu consisted of a wide variety of selections in any of the meat or fish options. The portion... More

One of the folks at my table had the seafood salad appetizer and that looked incredible. Basically everyone picked something that looked way better than what I had. I had the scallops provencale which are always great -

We went with a group of 16 on a Sunday at 6:00 PM, not a busy time. Pleasant ambiance. Service was a bit slow and inconsistent, with only one waiter servicing our table, but the quality of the food made up for it. Everyone seemed pleased with their selections of appetizers, entrees, drinks and desserts. My neighbor's 3 extra sized... More

Business dinner. I had the fresh mozzarella and tomato salad followed by a piggie portion of the lasagne (which wasn't as substantial as I had feared/hoped). The salad was quite delicious, especially the slightly sweet balsamic dressing. Truth be told, I was slightly disappointed with my lasagne choice: seemed like a mass of layered noodles without much in between them.... More

We reserved the upstairs dining area for a Rehearsal Dinner with 35 guests, and Casa Bella did not disappoint. The upstairs views overlooking the lake added a scenic touch. This is an upscale authentic Italian Restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was delicious as always. They served hot appetizers family style : fried calamari, eggplant rollatini, and mozzarella... More

Description
Owners, Luciano Damato and his nephew, Angelo Locantore, welcome you to Casa Bella where the fine cuisine, warm, inviting ambiance and impeccable service effortlessly combine to create a rich and authentic Italian dining experience. Dishes enjoyed for generations in villages throughout Italy inspire our menu.

During lunch and dinner hours, pastas and flavorful sauces simmer while meats and vegetables are slowly cooked to perfection. We continue to use the recipes that have been handed down from our mothers, uncles, aunts, brothers and cousins - from one generation to the next. Bottles of wine are uncorked to complement the dishes, crafted and informed by the culture of Italy. Our menu includes modern and original interpretations of handmade pastas, seafood, veal, poultry, steaks and prime beef that marry the freshest ingredients of the season with an inspired culinary approach.
