The pizza is great, as are the fries and authentic cheese steaks. When they tell you 20 minutes, get there in 15, or your fries will be cold. This place is a staple for my family on Friday nights; where else would you go?

I am writing about the Bella Italia, Pottstown location. I have to write it here because, shockingly, the Pottstown location's reviews have mysteriously disappeared. This is about the owner of both locations, so it applies... It's terribly unfortunate. We've been dedicated customers 2x/month, if not more, since the Pottstown location opened. Every meal was a minimum of $30 (plus tips),... More

Your typical pizza joint. I come here with my kids usually for lunch. You can spread out in a booth and not feel like you are bothering everyone else. The pizza is good but they do a nice cheesesteak. There is a good selection of alcoholic drinks for sale.

One of the best pizzas I've ever had. Fresh ingredients, the sauce was delicious and the crust was perfect. Next time I'm in the area, I will stop by Bella Italia

Their food is DELICIOUS, reasonably priced and quickly served. It has that old school, family-owned Italian Pizza Shop feel! It wasn't our first choice when deciding where to go to eat. But, after our visit, I can't wait to go back!

After hearing so many good things about their pizza we finally decided to try it. We mostly liked it. The quality of the toppings was quite good. Yes, it was a little greasy but I actually like that. The big problem was that the crust was so thin it was soggy. The pizza was not undercooked at all but the... More

Bella Italia is a decent neighborhood Pizza joint in a small plaza just off the main street (Lancaster Avenue) in Ardmore, PA., on the Main Line west of Phildadelphia. The decor is bright with faux everything, including the faux tiffany lamps. It seems clean enough and the Pizza is fairly thin sliced with a good cheese and decent sauce. But... More

Maybe the other people who gave reviews have never eaten pizza before because this was the worst I have ever had. There is no more to say, it was just really bad food. There were six people in our party and we had two pies- all thumbs down. One pizza was supposed to have tomatoes on it but came with... More

It's always a battle of opinions when you ask anyone who has the best pizza in the area. However my vote goes to Bella Italia in Ardmore. The building is a little worn and shows a lot of wear and tear over years of service to the area. It's not much to look it with it's hand written signs, faded... More

Pizza and hoagies are good. The best is their cheesesteaks! Delicious! Real Italian hoagies. Great New York style pizza - think crust.
