I would have given 5 stars-- but we were outside and it seemed like we were waiting a long time for the wait staff. Other than that, we had pizza, wine and beer. It was way above average and delish!!

This little gem is tucked back in a shopping plaza. However, it is worth visiting. Salads are crisp and fresh, pizza is delicious and marina sauce is superb in any dish. I always find time to visit this restaurant when I am in Hilton Head.

We went to back to our all time favorite pizza place and it did not disappoint. Bella has the best pizza hands down!! The crust and sauce are perfection. The salads are fresh, huge and delicious. A nice selection of wine to go with our dinner. You just can't beat this place for a great meal at a great price!

I stop in for lunch fairly often for the terrific value, especially for the slice (really two slices) and a salad. Quiet small place run forever by Tony, the owner- who strongly supports the community and local art scene. Ok for dinner, but lunch is their forte.

All of our dishes were average. The food was not bad but not special by any means. Would I go back? Not with all the wonderful restaurants in the area.

If you enjoy the authentic family owned and run neighborhood hangout, this is your place. The staff is warm and friendly, mostly family too. The food is authentic with excellent pizza and pasta choices. This place is the Italian version of "Cheers" for the locals. Great spot for food and atmosphere.

Red sauce like Nonna used to make, great meatballs, chicken Parmesan, lasagna, eggplant, all the staples of Southern Italian cooking. Dinner includes warm garlic bread and a salad for a VERY reasonable price. Generous servings of wine and beer, also reasonably priced. A real find on an island like Hilton Head! The decor is checked table cloths, classic old Italian... More

This place is absolutely amazing! We enjoyed this place more than once on our vacation. Our server, Jamie, is the best. Without a doubt we will be returning in the future!

All the pasta dishes are good and the sandwiches are plenty big enough to eat half there and take the rest back for lunch the next day.Limited wine selection but decent reds for the pasta.Pizzas are huge and many do carryout to take home.Service was fine for a...

Very basic, not particularly attractive restaurant. Service was average. Pizza was not bad but we have certainly had better.
