I have tendered a low rating based more on my negative experience than their quality of food. We chose Bella Roma for a Sunday evening dinner while visiting Santa Cruz County. It was a special weekend and Bella Roma was operating on a fixed menu...More

Went for our first time - had a price fixe menu. Everything both of us ordered was delicious beyond description. The appetizer, salad, main courses and desserts. We chose the pork loin (actually three cutlets) and the gnocchi with shimps and scallops. For dessert we...More

Dismiss the "cafe" in the title! This is a full meal deal! I ordered the risotto special (fabulous!!) and my husband ordered the lamb ragout (super fantastically fabulous! Order 2 and take one home!!) Go!
