This restaurant was chosen for a business lunch - was not aware this was a new location, but I'm not surprised as it was very clean and well-maintained. The waitress was very respectful to the fact we were pressed for time, and got us our food as quickly as possible - though it took a few reminders for her to... More

I had been to their older restaurant years ago; however, even though the food was amazing, I did not like how the restaurant was so small and claustrophobic. The new location on Newport Avenue is wonderful. Much larger and the food is still amazing! They have a lunch special of soup... More

I must confess it has been a while since we visited Bella Padta, but we were curious to see the new building and see our favorite waitress Tiffany. Everything was outstanding!!! The restaurant is bright and clean. The food was incredible and Tiffany made some great suggestions to us regarding the entrees and cocktails. Has a wonderful dinner and can't... More

Love this place and new location is so nice ! ..Only complaint is that it is very bright ... lights should be a little more dim and relaxing !! And also the fact that they upgraded on Building size but not wine glass size :( not the pour but the actual tiny old school glasses should be updated

No refills offered on drinks or bread. After an hour and a half, the food came. No better than Frozen STOUFFERS. Certainly NOT homemade pasta. Small portions. My family wanted to... More

We were a party of 10, celebrating a birthday, 9 adults and one toddler, visiting on the first Friday after relocating from their long-time location on Benefit St. to a larger, bright and modern location at 223 Newport Ave. Understanding that this was really like a "soft opening," we were very sympathetic and mild-mannered with our server, but if we'd...
