Neighborhood pizzeria with a killer outdoor patio. Head in for happy hour for $1 off slices and pints. Family and vegan friendly!
This pizzeria has a vast selection of pies (vegan too, of course!) and slices with the perfect grease-to-crisp ratio.
Love this pizza! – Love this place, but every 1 out of five times the counter person is not kind...other than that the food is great!
Best Pizza in Portland! For sure! I used to live ten mins away from Bella and would go at least once a week to get a slice. Now I live 45 mins away and still make the trip out there, it's worth it for that amazing crust! And for those who complain about poor service... what do you want 'em to wash your feet while they make your pizza for you? Tell you what a wonderful person you are? How proud they are of you for finding your way into their establishment? Get a clue. You want to be pampered, go to a massage parlor or call your mom. You want Hella Awesome pizza, go to Bella Faccia. The closest thing to real italian pizza I've had anywhere in this city. They know how to make some damn good 'Za! Grazie, Bella Faccia! Molto Bene!
okay pizza, terrible service – Pizza's alright. Service sux. If you don't want to work at a pizza joint, then don't! Please don't make us poor schlubs who just want a slice deal with your hipster-waiter angst. Those big '80s glasses look stupid on you, too.
And I don't even like NY pizza – I'm a west coastie who didn't grow up on NY style, and I have to say in general I prefer a sturdier, heartier pizza. But Bella Faccia has me won over. Even if it wasn't in my neighborhood I'd go out of the way for it. There's a Hot Lips closer that will deliver (Bella Faccia doesn't), but even that won't make me change allegiances. The sauce is flavorful--it actually tastes like tomato and not generic "sauce". We always get takeout because the place itself is very small. The staff there won't coddle you, but I don't consider that bad service. To me, poor service means you don't get what you asked for or it takes an unreasonably long time to get it. Their job is to get you your food, that's it, and here they do it well. Maybe they won't read the signs for you if you won't read 'em for yourself, and yes, they enforce a strict no-cell-phone policy at the counter and WILL walk away if you ignore it. I say, good for them! Great pizza, fast service, and I don't want anything else from a neighborhood pizza place.
Eat this pally! – Wow, anyone who does not like this pizza must prefer Cavone pizza like Dominoes, or they think that escape from NY is really good because of their one cup of oil to every slice ratio.
I am from the New York area, and I lived in NYC for 4 years, and I have to say...
get the cheese pizza, it is where it is at! If you can't take the service then think about all the clowns who ride bikes without helmets, or car drivers who are allergic to using turn signals in this town.
When you are in the Alberta Arts district, forget Tin Shed (they are the sanctimonious white bread restaurant!) go for the Bella baby!!!!!
Pepperoni is my fave! – Pizza is yummy and not your every day tasting pizza, totally unique. You can buy by the slice or order a pie of your own, I love how they feature two "specialty" pizzas every day, helps me to broaden my horizons - even though the pepperoni is my fave! The staff there is pretty friendly also. The drawbacks is that there isn't a lot of room to move around in there, and if it's the summer you'll really want to get outdoor seating because it is HOT in there, just get it to go though, enjoy it at home. Parking can be a pain on the weekends and evenings, but such is Alberta right?
CITYDORK – Seriously, the person below me is a F*CKING DORK. Bella's has some of the best pizza in town. P-I-Z-Z-A.
on the counter – i eat out a lot. all the time. and i have come to love the pizza at bella faccia. the slices are really pretty big and are not too saucey and not drowned in cheese. the counter girls are super fast and can move a line out the door and to the street pretty quick. at times they might be a little impatceint, but i wouldn't go as far to call them rude.
they have salads too. the greek salad is excellent. i love that they use red leaf lettuce. it has the perfect amount of toppings. if it is just you, only order the mini. their salads are huge. as for the caesar salad, i wish they wouldn't skimp so much on the caesar dressing though.
they have terminal gravity ipa on tap! which is the perfect match for pizza.
all in all, i would highly recommend bella faccia. good food. fast and fairly friendly service and super cheep. they have the best happy hour in town. and even as a meet eater, their vegan pies are to die for. SOOOOOOOooooooo good.
Lousy customer service – The pizza was so, so. I've had lots better and lots worse. What I found frustrating is that he counter help on each of the three occasions was incredibly rude! The first time the gal was busy visiting with another customer so I waited. She then took a personal cell phone call. When it was my turn to order she acted as though it wasn't in her contract to explain what the various slices of pizza were. She walked away. The guy making the pizza came to take my order. I tried it again several months later. Same thing, different employee. She was just blatantly rude. Third time (I live a block from the place) the counter help told me that I'd have to giver her exact change as she didn't have change and didn't know where the owner was. Haven't been back since - don't plan to.
Good pizza - not great, but good – Their vegan pizza is the best I've had in Portland so far. This place is a little cramped, but service is prompt and the food is pretty good. Not the best pizza in the world, but I'd go here over many other places in town.
