Team dinner for 8. Appetizers were delicious. Bread was crunchy and fresh. Service was way above average. Menu had good variety, light on the fish though. Only one fish dish, which I had, and was delicious. The only negative is that the restaurant is cozy. The tables are pretty tight together. That isn't even really a negative unless you like your space. It started to get hot in there as the restaurant filled up.

Amazing meal from start to finish with a great atmosphere. The Kale and Grape Salad alone is worth the drive downtown. Never thought I'd say that about a salad! The scallops are seasoned and seared to absolute perfection. Every bite was sublime. I cannot praise the chef enough - passion shows in the food! Incredible. The building is rich with history. Read about it on the menu. A slightly musty scent reminds you it was once a cellar, but it adds to the ambiance. It is an intimate setting, and they really make you feel like you're getting VIP treatment. I just can't say enough about how fantastic our experience was. Can't wait to go back!

Very good food. Our meal was very satisfying and the wait staff is fantastic. I would highly recommend the filet mignon and the bruscetta.

This place is amazing! My girlfriend and I went here for dinner while visiting from Houston. The fantastic experience started off immediately as we were greeted warmly by the host, David. I mentioned I had a reservation and gave him my name, he apparently has all the reservations memorized and guided us to our table. Bella operates with a two server system, so Nathan and Amanda took care of us all night (awesome service). Without going into too much detail... The food was absolutely amazing. Everything from the pork belly app to the paella (incredible) to the Nutella no-bake cheesecake (one of the best desserts I've ever had). I couldn't have been happier with my experience here. I'll definitely be coming back the next time I'm in town.

It was ok: Bread and olive oil with rosemary and roasted garlic was good The mussels were good however the mustard sauce was too strong and covering their flavor Scallops were very good, however i would skip the sun dried tomatoes Chocolate tart was ok, too much caramel for me

We enjoyed a fantastic meal. I went to Bella's based on Google Reviews and I'm glad I did. I highly recommend the Pork Tenderloin. Clearly the best I've had in my life, seriously. My wife loved her scallops but seemed to slip her fork into my plate when I wasn't looking. Service was outstanding. This is a very small and intimate restaurant. You will be sitting close to others. I would call ahead to inquire about possible reservations also. They have several table where you can sit on the Riverwalk as well.

This is our go-to anniversary spot. Relaxing, intimate atmosphere and fabulous food. I just wish they still had their awesome piano player!
