I visited recently with friends for the first time. Dinner meal prices are medium to high (a little higher than Olive Garden). The table had bottled beer ($3.50) and house wine ($6) for beverages. Garlic knots are served gratis. My house salad had brown and yellow lettuce in spots, but the blue cheese dressing was excellent. All others had romaine... More

Not just a pizza place, so don't be fooled. Go for great pizza in a cozy, family-owned atmosphere, but be sure to try their yummy dinners which include salad and delectable garlic knots at reasonable prices. Sandwiches are a good take-out item as you drive west to the beach. I've never had a mediocre meal here!

Chef Amato prepared a wonderfully delicious dinner for us for a reasonable price. My wife who judges every new Italian restaurant upon the eggplant parmigiana said "before this evening another chef held the distinction of preparing the best dish". That is impressive since she has had hundreds of these dishes prepared both privately and commercially over the past 30 years.

I've had food from Bella Mia twice in the past few days. First was "dine in," the second was "carry out." I enjoyed really good food and service on both visits! Portions are more than ample and prices very reasonable. I can confidently recommend Bella Mia for a good Italian meal!

My wife and I made our second visit here tonight. We picked them because our previous visit, several years ago while vacationing, was excellent. They did not disappoint. I had the minestrone soup, which is made at the time of the order. The veggies were still crisp. You can tell the soup didn't sit around in a hot pot all... More

Went here due to other restaurants being totally slammed; we were immediately seated. Pleasant waitstaff, pizza came out as requested (was good), and while the meatball appetizer was good, it was rather small for $6.00 (2 small meatballs). Verdict? Good, but not sure would be a to-go place.

I have been here several times and the staff is friendly,helpful and attentive. Menu is typical small Italian restaurant with a few specials. Pizza is good and menu items are good to very good. The free garlic knots are a must and hard to stop eating. My last visit I has the special pork parmigiana with pasta and it was... More
