Let me start with - Bella Monica would normally get a 4.0 from me for their food (we live in the neighborhood and are periodic customers). But I had an unusual circumstance recently that has lowered my rating. My credit card was charged a mere...More

Have often heard great reviews of this restaurant and finally took my family for a visit. For one, the food was good (not omg, everybody must try this or that, but good). The service really was vastly different from the 2013 award hanging on the...More

You have to want to go here because there is only a small sign on the door which is blocked by an awning. Food was quite good and the portions was sufficient. They have outdoor dining and well as indoor.

If a zero star was a rating option, I would give Bella Monica a zero star. We had the worst restaurant experience of all time at this place. I had made reservations for my boyfriend's birthday. We waited 45 min for our table. During that...More
