We ate at Bella's on a recent trip to Charlottesville for our anniversary. The waiter made it clear that the portions were meant to be shared. Yes, there is a lot of food, but it wasn't good. We started with artichoke poppers that were fried...More

Indeed it is. Some of the best Italian I have had in Charlottesville. Sauces just right spicy. Service was just right. A bit on the pricier side compared to other Italian places, but worth it.

Nice little Italian Restaurant, very close to our B & B. Our dinners were excellent, however, we were surprised that no bread with dipping oil was offered. The drinks were also a little pricey. But, if you're looking for a really great meal, you can't...More

Our family enjoyed eating at Bella's. The place is not very big. You can make reservations. Nice atmosphere. The food is served family style, either for 1-2 people or for 3-4 people. But the dishes for 1-2 that my daughter-in-law and I shared fed us...More

My husband and I enjoyed a romantic and relaxing dinner last evening starting with grilled gorgonzola salad, followed by fresh pasta with Bolognese, and finishing with chocolate cheese cake and expresso. Service and atmosphere were perfect to transport us into a bubble of relaxation. Thank...More

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Want Italian food? Go to Bella's. We've dined at many 5star restaurants around the nation and around the world so I'm being careful not to overrate. For a local and well established Charlottesville restaurant, it doesn't get much better. Nice job....More

They have huge portions that you have to share so hopefully you both like the same thing. The salad was good but we didn't care for the chicken parm. The chicken was tough and the sauce wasn't tasty either. The service was fast, waiter had...More

Too bad about the insensitivity, but we live in a democracy I believe, and suppressing of opinion just because someone might be offended undermines the freedom of speech upon which a democracy depends.....
