Visited Bella's while on vacation on Sugar Mountain. Food was amazing, staff was and pleasant and the owner Craig was friendly and took the time to talk to us. Food was so good we visited 3 times during our vacation to eat Italian dishes and pizza. Definitely will be back.

We ate here our first night in town, sharing the Drunken Clams and a "build-your-own" pizza. Both were so tasty, we stopped again on our last night in town. Servers were friendly, atmosphere was nice, but relaxed. Can't wait to go back and try some of the pasta dishes!

I was not sure about this place at first glance. It's in a small strip mall across from a grocery store. There were a lot of families with small kids, which is not usually my scene. I thought maybe the food would be mediocre, mom and pop stuff. Man, did they change my mind! We had dinner on a Monday... More

We ordered 6 large pizzas for super bowl Sunday. It was about 2 hours before kickoff and they were slammed with orders from people with the same idea. They told us they would be ready in an hour.

Excellent Stromboli, calzone, lasagna, pizza. Fast and friendly service. Large portions and reasonable prices. Casual, cool atmosphere. Wish their Boone location could get their service issues fixed 😐

The special today was Cavatapi Bologinase. GOOD, GOOD, GOOD! My wife had... More

The host needs to work in another job, preferably without customer interaction. She was sooooo unfriendly. Not even a hello, nothing. We waited 45 min for a table at 5.15 pm. The table we got was empty the entire time. Portions were generous, food was good.
