One of the folks at my table had the seafood salad appetizer and that looked incredible. Basically everyone picked something that looked way better than what I had. I had the scallops provencale which are always great -

We went with a group of 16 on a Sunday at 6:00 PM, not a busy time. Pleasant ambiance. Service was a bit slow and inconsistent, with only one waiter servicing our table, but the quality of the food made up for it. Everyone seemed pleased with their selections of appetizers, entrees, drinks and desserts. My neighbor's 3 extra sized... More

Business dinner. I had the fresh mozzarella and tomato salad followed by a piggie portion of the lasagne (which wasn't as substantial as I had feared/hoped). The salad was quite delicious, especially the slightly sweet balsamic dressing. Truth be told, I was slightly disappointed with my lasagne choice: seemed like a mass of layered noodles without much in between them.... More

We reserved the upstairs dining area for a Rehearsal Dinner with 35 guests, and Casa Bella did not disappoint. The upstairs views overlooking the lake added a scenic touch. This is an upscale authentic Italian Restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was delicious as always. They served hot appetizers family style : fried calamari, eggplant rollatini, and mozzarella... More

In town for business and when you're in N.J. you have to find solid Italian food. Great wine list and exceptional food. Pasta dishes offer 1/2 portions which was awesome. Had 1/2 portion of eggplant parmigiano which was the perfect side. Service was fast but not rushed. What you envision a N.J. Italian restaurant to be. On a side note,... More

Food was very well made, tasty. Had the chicken parm, very tender and delicious. Only drawback is that it's very noisy atmosphere. Acoustics aren't good, makes it hard to hear your own table. Perhaps going on an off hour when not so busy, would be better.

Casa Bella is a throwback to the old days of great food and impeccable service in a comfortable intimate setting. We stumbled onto this place a couple of years ago, and it has remained our go-to restaurant for our annual Labor Day weekend return. It never disappoints. Everything was top notch, from the cocktails to the main courses. Sadly, we... More

Went here for a couples date a few times. The food is great and the setting is good for couples. I especially like the outdoor seating available in the summer

Owners, Luciano Damato and his nephew, Angelo Locantore, welcome you to Casa Bella where the fine cuisine, warm, inviting ambiance and impeccable service effortlessly combine to create a rich and authentic Italian dining experience. Dishes enjoyed for generations in villages throughout Italy inspire our menu.

During lunch and dinner hours, pastas and flavorful sauces simmer while meats and vegetables are slowly cooked to perfection. We continue to use the recipes that have been handed down from our mothers, uncles, aunts, brothers and cousins - from one generation to the next. Bottles of wine are uncorked to complement the dishes, crafted and informed by the culture of Italy. Our menu includes modern and original interpretations of handmade pastas, seafood, veal, poultry, steaks and prime beef that marry the freshest ingredients of the season with an inspired culinary approach.
