Lost out to Luigi's, next door. This was a good little Italian place, but people decided the place next door to the north was a little bit better, and that's how it goes.

No sadness in their closing. Ate there once and never was hungry enough to go back. There are better places to get a meal. My food was passable, my wife's was not. Poor selection of tired looking deserts.

The service is polite, but scattered-brain. The service just didn't flow. First the drinks were switched, no biggie. Had to ask for a refill, irritating. The couple across the way were served their salads but had no silverware. The poor lady across from me didn't...More

This is the restaurant Ottawa has been needing for a long time. My husband and I travel all over and have eaten at many many restaurants. The food at Bella Cucina is certainly some of the better food we've eaten. Francine is not only friendly...More

The place is cute on the interior. Staff was OK, not overly friendly or super. The parmesan shaker on the table had mold growing in the cheese, the dessert display in the middle of the restaurant was swarmed by fruit flies. It was a Saturday...More
