Cannot say enough great things about this restaurant. They were able to accommodate a party of 15. The food was excellent as was the service. Would definitely go back!

This past weekend my new husband and I hosted our Rehearsal dinner here, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome!!! The food was delicious, the staff was friendly, professional, and attentive, the prices were extremely reasonable, and the private room was just perfect for our event. Our guests enjoyed the whole experience, and I would highly recommend this restaurant... More

A group of us meet regularly on Sunday evenings, and quite often we come here. The staff is always attentive, the food is excellent, and the price is right. They are always very accommodating and never rush us even - - if it's a Sunday evening. One of our favorite places, for sure.

Bella Gente seems to be an undiscovered Italian restaurant and we are not sure why it is not crowded. The service is friendly and attentive and the thin crust pizza is amazing, delicious and crisp, everything you want in a pizza! The chef has a light touch and we especially enjoy the pasta specials with seafood - yumm! Their portions... More
