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.

The manager was horrible! My 5 year old had to do the #2 really bad and the closest place to this restaurant was this place and he refused to let he go! I told him she is turtle heading and he still refused! I asked him if he was just going to let her crap on herself? He said yes but I'm sorry! Wtf? Really? No sympathy or common courtesy at all. If you treat outside people like this then this place tells me that they look at you and discriminate! 9/5/15 8:30 pm

My wife and I ate here for dinner during our vacation in San Antonio in May. The restaurant is located just off of the busy area of the Riverwalk. Inside you will find a quaint and nicely decorated place. We did not have reservations but luckily there was a table available. The waiter brought us bread with roasted garlic, rosemary and olive oil for dipping. I could not get enough! Delicious! We ordered the Emmola Sauvignon Blanc wine, Pasta Bella and Texas Redfish. Everything was delicious and well priced! We had a wonderful time and highly recommend eating here. We will definitely be back!

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!

We had a nice lunch here today. The atmosphere and service was just fine. I loved the hummus. The piuta meat was very fresh and the onions seemed really potent today. We all had a nice time.

Romantic, rustic, and cozy. Great service. The menu was accompanied with unique specials. Get the eggplant josephine, just do it.

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
