We went with a group of 8 people. I received my meal (like warm) after most people had eaten at least half of theirs I didn't send it back because it took so long. One person asked for a refill on her coke which did not come. One person ordered coffee with dessert. The coffee finally came after everyone was... More

Just came back from a business dinner. Sort of cool and fun atmosphere and helped creative juice flowing for business ideas. Good seafood and steak dinners.

First, the staff and owners were sooooo friendly which always seems to make the food taste even better. And then the quiet piano music, lighting and mood of the place was fantastic. The piano was a nice background but also quiet enough that people didn't have to talk over it to be heard. And then the food! They are game... More

My wife and I had a Christmas eve dinner at Bella Costa. We had reservations for 7 pm, not realizing that this was the last reservation before they closed early for Christmas eve. We arrived about 10 minutes late, when the owner told us they were closed at 7. When we let him know that we had a reservation, he... More

Great food, great service, great entertainment. Finally, a nice locally owned establishment. The waitress recommended the lobster risotto which was delicious. The jazz duo ( piano/ drums) were great to listen to during after dinner drinks. Very nice ambience added to a very pleasant night out. Highly recommended.

Third time my family has been here and it is always a treat. Nice interior, not gaudy, but classy. Great menu, good variety and usually nice specials. A gem in this part of the town, well worth the visit

Glad we went and will go again....Prices good and service excellent...Food very tasty....BUT...when googled and searched the Sunday Brunch comes up as a "buffet"...There is an "unlimited" Omelette Bar ($8 or $3 add on) but very limited in "ingredients" and not what we expected as far as what a Brunch Buffet is....Enjoyed thoroughly but just a heads up!!

In the summer, I wrote a stunning review for this restaurant. However, the past two times I have been here, I have been very disappointed. The service was awful. By the time we got our food, it was obvious it had been sitting out and reheated. My son's french fries were hard and cold. My pasta dish was hot in... More

For years I drove past this establishment never giving it a second thought...than one day a co-worker suggested we go for lunch. What a treat. Great food at a reasonable price. The owner and staff greet you like you're family.
