The menu is primarily Italian food. This visit we had a supreme pizza which was very good! We ordered a medium size and still had 3 pieces to take home. The service was very good and our waitress was friendly and had a good sense of humor. The chicken salads were huge and the chicken marsala was very good too.... More

We love anything off their menu. The pastas, pizza and salads are all worth trying. The staff couldn't be nicer. You can enjoy a nice glass of wine or beer with your meal. It is family friendly. Yum!

We love it there. We find it difficult in our busy schedule to eat in, however we get carry out a few times a month. Great traditional Italian! Great staff.

Good menu and food is average plus. Service was slow and dishes were very pricey. Not planning to return.

The last time I got food from Bella Mia it was a "Hit" last time it was a "Miss" And my "Miss" I mean, the sauce didn't taste right. The pasta was old. The "Garlic Knots' were old. This last time. It was a "Hit" the pasta was fresh, the sauce was on target and the knots were alright. The... More

I visited recently with friends for the first time. Dinner meal prices are medium to high (a little higher than Olive Garden). The table had bottled beer ($3.50) and house wine ($6) for beverages. Garlic knots are served gratis. My house salad had brown and yellow lettuce in spots, but the blue cheese dressing was excellent. All others had romaine... More

Not just a pizza place, so don't be fooled. Go for great pizza in a cozy, family-owned atmosphere, but be sure to try their yummy dinners which include salad and delectable garlic knots at reasonable prices. Sandwiches are a good take-out item as you drive west to the beach. I've never had a mediocre meal here!

Chef Amato prepared a wonderfully delicious dinner for us for a reasonable price. My wife who judges every new Italian restaurant upon the eggplant parmigiana said "before this evening another chef held the distinction of preparing the best dish". That is impressive since she has had hundreds of these dishes prepared both privately and commercially over the past 30 years.

Thank Kimry G
