My wife and I stopped for lunch on recommendation of local friends. The restaurant was moderately busy on Thursday afternoon. We were able to seat ourselves, and were promtly attended. I ordered grouper fingers with coleslaw and fries. Fish was good, fries were hot, crispy outside and soft inside. Didn't like the slaw. My wife ordered white bean & ham... More

My wife and I were looking for Italian food and we narrowed our choice down to Bella's or Sorrento's and decided on Bella's since it was closer to where we were staying and it had received good reviews. My wife ordered the ravioli with marinara sauce and I ordered spaghetti with meat sauce and meat balls. The meal came with... More

The pizza was really good. We stayed in Banner Elk while traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway. This is a very nice area.

We didn't know where to take our family to eat but we like Italian, so a local recommended we try Bella's. We ordered an appetizer of Cheezy Bread and a large Pizza. The Cheezy Bread is like a white Pizza pie with garlic and was out of this world. Our pizza was one of their creations with sliced tomatos and... More

We made a mistake of ordering an appetizer of Bruschetta. Which was amazing ❤. I ordered the lasagna which was extremely cheesy. We also ordered the chicken Parmesan which was outstanding! Outside the chalkboard read lasagna was $10. But we were charged $13.99 afterwards we learned that was lunch price.

My family had a wonderful dinner at Bella's. We had a variety of dishes from chicken fingers and pizza for the kids to Veal Parmigiana for me. The service was fast and the food was hot and very good. The dishes were large (we carried home 4 to-go plates). Yum-Yum, I recommend a visit to Bella's.

We visited Bella's for their lunch. We got way more food than was expected and it tasted great. We will definately visit here for dinner the next time we're in town. With lunch being so good, I can only imagine how sublime the dinner tastes. The staff is very friendly, polite, and attentative. Thank you.
