I like Trip Advisor otherwise would not have found this gem. Located in a strip mall (always scary) this place left us very satisfied. I had the pizza, other had the calzone. Really very good. Waitress was very nice, overall great experience. Return visit, most likely.

This is one of our favorite Italian restaurants! The pizza has a chewy, bubbly crust that is so yummy! All the main courses we've tried have been awesome! Big portions, too! The complimentary bruschetta is a treat, and so are the desserts!

I was very disappointed. Read good reviews and a friend raves about it.
It was very loud. Not good for visiting . Menu was ok. Tables too close. Food was drenched in sauce.
Wouldn’t return or recommend.

Bella’s is an inexpensive, but tasty and classy experience. The food is generally delicious, if a little too filling. This is definitely one of the top Italian restaurants in Tampa. It’s open till late, and they usually have tables for walk ins. Come hungry!

Incredible service! No complaints from a service perspective, our waiter was amazing and we couldn’t really ask for more. I had a chicken parm and unfortunately the chicken was a little tough and a bit salty. I had tortellini that was very good and we ordered some arancini (rice balls) that were actually delicious! Overall it was a good experience but the service definitely made up for some lack of excitement in the food. How can chicken parm get tough and salty when it’s usually a best seller? Either way, I’m comfortable with 4 stars because overall experience and service merits it.
