Just returned from Italy... – I had just returned from Italy, and was trying to get into the pizza place around the corner. They were booked, so my friend and I went to Bella Trattoria. The food instantly brought me back to Italy -- and the wines on the wine list were the same ones I had tried on my trip!
I had the pasta sampler, and they were all delicious. My friend's gnocci was amazing. While in Italy, I couldn't put my finger on what tasted so different there compared to the so-called Italian food in the States. Whatever the difference is, Bella has it nailed -- the food is very authentic, as well as the serving sizes. Some people don't seem to realize that the plates are smaller because in Italy, pasta is just one of a three-course meal.
IN VENO VERITAS – One of the best Italian Restaurant in US. Ive been traveling arround the world, and I can say the veal is the best, also spaghetti with duck is the homemade specialty from Antonio the owner. Should try!Worth it and never forget about BELLA:)
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! – i've been going to this restaurant for 2 years and it's all damn good here. I met many celebrities like Sharon Stone, & John Galliano here!! It was amazing!!! I tried everything here and they all are very authentic taste of italian food! Great atmosphere, friendly staff, delicious food!!!!!!!!!!
Addicted to Bella! – What can I say? Me and my girlfriend love all the food here & we're always dreaming about the food whenever we go out of town, want to come back for more. Tagliata is my choice or veal is a very nice choice too for the meatlovers. I like the linguini pasta too; my girlfriend lov the pastas very nice range of homemade sauces here. I've been trying italian food around the town, it's definitely an authentic food of italian taste and we'd always go back for more. The parking would be challenging especially around week-end but it is definitely worth it to eat here!
Always In Luv with tha Food!! – Evrything in here are so BUONISSIMA!! I've tried pretty much evrything here. EXCELLENT pastas very fresh & unique, i luv the portobello mushroom, bruschetta for the antipasti, and for the main course i luv the ravioli butternutsquash or ravioli with pinksauce! Very Yummy!! My friends ordered tagliatta or veal, these are very delicious too!! The fish (pesce), prawn plates also nice if you like seafood. For dessert, I luv the tiramisu (very fresh), and cream puff with chocolate splatter and sugar. These are just the things i tried but other things in the menu are really great too.
If you want to add a lil' romanticism, go at night where the light has a dim light + la candela on the table.
Very friendly staff, cozy environment, always great experience here!!
Gnocchi, Gnocchi, Gnocchi!!!!!!! – I've been dinning out in San Francisco for almost ten years and I feel I know the scene pretty well......Last week was the second time that I had dined at Bella....and have to admit that was some of the best damn gnocchi I ever had.....I recommend if your one of the few gnocchi lovers out there you must try the gnocchi at bella....
Overpriced, Undercooked, and Bland – If you like prompt service, good food, and reasonable prices, then this restaurant is NOT for you. Bella Trattoria is the worst Italian restaurant Ive ever been to.
My date and I waited for an hour and five minutes for our food to arrive, and it only took five minutes for me to finish my undercooked Tragliolini. Portions were so small, I thought I was eating from the kids menu. Soup/salad is not included. You wouldn't want to order their bland minestrone anyway. The soup, served in a plate, was so shallow it barely fit my spoon.
Seating is also very crowded. The waiters bumped into my chair on at least five occasions, and never apologized. If the service and food is good, then you can't put a price on that. But when service is as poor as this and the food is worse, you question what you're paying for.
Perfect for all occasions – Bravo Bella! I had such a great time when I visited Bella Trattoria, for the first time last night. One of the most important things in a restaurant to me is to feel warm and comfortable off the bat. They went over and beyond to do so. We started with an amazing Cabarnet, called- Bonna Corre-.Everything from the service to the food, was as smooth and lovely as the wine that we sipped. I can't wait to take a group of my girlfriends in to be spoiled by the inviting staff. The gnocci was amazing! Please, if you need some special time with a loved one or friend take them to Bella.
Excellent! – I have been to Bella twice now and both times I've been very pleased. Although it can take a while to get your food, the waiters make up for it by being very attentive and offering lots of bread. The gnocci is the best I've ever had. I've also tried the polenta and the orecchiette and both are excellent. I've received complimentary tiramisu on both of my visits. The prices are very affordable and the atmosphere is warm and cozy. This is definitely my favorite Italian restaurant!
Viva Bella! – What a find! We were in the city looking for a nice "locals only place" and we were lucky enough to stumble onto this cute little restautrant. The ambience is to DIE for ...too cute. However, it was the food that really stood out. I've been to Italy and I can say that this is authentic as they come...good inexpensive wine, homemade food and Italian waiters. If there was one negative to the night, it had to had been the parking but it was well worth the hassel. It's cute lil places like this that I wished I lived in the City!!!!!!! Grazie a Bella
