    The fettuccine Alfredo may be the best I've ever tasted...fresh, creamy, cheesy. The lasagna con pollo was excellent, creamy pink sauce with nice spice and great blend of flavored and veggies.

    This Hyde Park restaurant features an affordable menu of Italian dishes made from scratch. Stop by during their late-night happy hour for half-price pizzas and calzones, plus two-for-one drinks.

    The Bistecca Gorgonzola w/ Angel Hair (instead of sunburst pasta) is AMAZING, as is the Lobster Bisque--- My only real complaint is that Bella's does not allow half-orders on the pasta

    good place for groups - have attended both a book group & an artsy meet-up here. Service is attentive without being annoying. And they let you hang out and chat without rushing you.

    The dessert is great. If they're busy however, be prepared to wait a long time before a server even says hi to you.
