Bella Cucina is situated at the corner of Franklin's main street and the town park and the high windows give you a nice view of both. We visited Franklin on our way from Amish country to the Alhegendies and wanted a late lunch and Bella Cucina was recommended bu some kind locals. The place has a very good choice of... More

My sisters and I (total party of 6) had a wonderful lunch at Bella Cucina. The food was all fabulous, reasonably priced, and served quickly and with style. Our waiter was knowledgeable and professional, and not overly chatty (none of that, "Hi, I'm Chas and I'll be taking care of you guys today" stuff). Highly recommended.

Went here for a business dinner. The staff was friendly, the atmosphere was very warm and inviting. The food was fantastic, and portion sizes were huge. The price was also high, but considering the quality of the food. I didn't think it was exorbitant.

Wonderful tapas menu on Wednesday and International night on Thursday. The menu is so versatile that you can find anything you want. You can even ask for off menu items and they will accommodate. Best place in Venango County, and perhaps North Western, Pa. True diamond in the rough. The kitchen team delivers everytime. Every meal comes straight from the... More

I have dined at this restaurant a few times when in town and have always enjoyed their food. I was really disappointed in my recent lunch. The roast beef in my sandwich was very tough and hardly edible. I thought the kettle chips would be home made but were straight from the bag. I was mortified at the condition of... More

A friend suggested we go there. I had a hard time finding something on the menu that I wanted to eat. The decor was nice. We went back another time with our daughter and she didn't think it was worth the drive and left most of her meal.

Bella Cucina is a "special occasion" restaurant for us. The menu is amazing, the food is delicious, and the service is top notch. Definitely a great place to eat!

This is a little restaurant with a great selection and moderately priced. It is on the main street of town right by the town park. Go There.
