I have always liked Bellas. I live here. But twice now I have left due to being treated rudely. Each time they were very busy so possibly its just a matter of hiring more help... This time they were pretty busy and I saw an open bar table and asked the bar tender if it was available. She was clearly... More

The food is authentic Italian and the portions are enormous. My only problem with Bella's is the "take Out". We ordered a pizza. I went to pick it up at the appointed time. Was thirty minutes more before they had it ready. The cashier did not have the correct change and she attempted to short me 76 cents. Normally ,... More

Excellent food but horrible service. We went in on a Sunday afternoon, 11/20/16 at 2:00 p.m., the place was not crowded at all. The waitress was horrible, rude and was in a real hurry to go no where. The food was excellent. We had the lunch specials, Spaghetti with meat sauce and my husband had some type of Penne with... More

We dine here often for lunch and dinner because we live in the area and the food is wonderful! The pizza is delicious. My husband prefers the lasagna and I usually order the eggplant parmigiana.

Excellent spaghetti and great service. Very close to Sugar Mountain and in the same center as Food Lion grocery store.

They have a weekly lobster deal for around $11. Not bad but a bit small tail. I eat the tail, wife likes the claws. Good deal.

Really enjoyed Bella's for dinner after a long day of fishing. Restaurant opened at 4 and we were seated and waited on quickly. We ordered the nachos as an appetizer and they were delicious. Would go back just for those. We had pepperoni pizza and a Stromboli and they were both delicious. Stromboli was big enough for 2 people by... More

Great Italian food lines were long but we were there Peak Week and Wooly Worm Festival weekend, the food was great, service was really good considering how busy the restaurant was, you really should try this place if you are in the Banner Elk N C area

We ate here for lunch today and my whole family really enjoyed it. The place was super busy, with only two servers for the whole restaurant. Even though they were slammed, the service was still good. We all loved the pizza. Got a large pizza for less than $15 and it was delicious. Will definitely be back on our next... More
