If you are looking for a great "date dinner location " then this is for you! Dim lighting creates a wonderful atmosphere. Always a safe bet for delicious food!!

I wasn't happy overall with my experience here. We were seated in the back next to the soda machine. Small cramped area. The food was mediocre at best. Dry alfredo. Honestly, I would choose Olive Garden over this experience

Bella Botte is one of our favorite Lexington restaurants. The menu is creative as well as provides all of the standard Italian dishes. The menu changes seasonally. The patio is like being in Italy. The main dining room has a tree growing through it!

My husband and I were in Lexington recently to attend a horse event and visited Bella Notte for dinner on a Saturday night. They were very busy and we had to wait approximately 15 minutes past our reservation time. However, once seated, the service was excellent. Our server promptly took our drink orders and had a warm loaf of bread... More

I love this place!! Great food, nice vibes, always clean and the wait staff is very attentive. The tomato & chicken soup is amazing! I've never liked tomato soup ever in my life until I tried it here. The "Veal Valdosta" is everything! It's always busy so make a reservation. You wont regret it!

This was our first visit to Bella Notte and we drove two hours to get there. The service was outstanding, as we were seated immediately, served quickly and the server went above and beyond to take care of us. The food was delicious from the appetizer to dessert, and I felt the price was fair for what we ordered. The... More

Wait service was great. It used to be a regular place of ours to eat. The last time I was there I got sick as "..."
