Let me start with - Bella Monica would normally get a 4.0 from me for their food (we live in the neighborhood and are periodic customers). But I had an unusual circumstance recently that has lowered my rating. My credit card was charged a mere...More

Have often heard great reviews of this restaurant and finally took my family for a visit. For one, the food was good (not omg, everybody must try this or that, but good). The service really was vastly different from the 2013 award hanging on the...More
