Bella Roma was delicious as always. One of my favorite restaurants in LA and my favorite Italian for sure. The homemade pasta is to die for and the specials are always great.

I HAVE recommended Bella Roma to all my friends and everybody else loves it too! They should send me a finder's fee. It is just a good, casual, reasonably priced Italian restaurant. The owner is always there to make sure. Way better than a large, impersonal chain restaurant.

The food is OK but far from being great. The service was excellent. It is a neighborhood Italian restaurant which does not compare to the better Italian restaurants in Beverly Hills. For example I had veal marsala at one of the top-end Italian restaurants in Beverly Hills recently and the quality of the meat was far better than at Bella Roma and also the sauce was better prepared. However, It is more expensive than Bella Roma . So if you’re looking for an adequate meal for less expensive cost, this would be a good choice.

It is my most favorite italian restaurant in LA, which is saying alot. The food is outstanding and so reasonably priced. I've paid a lot more for less good food at some of the trendier and most expensive Italian restaurants in LA, and they don't come close to Bella Roma S.P.Q.R.

Not only would I recommend Bella Roma to a friend, but I have......often. And everybody keeps returning. This is a great, great neighborhood Italian restaurant with good tasty food and very nice service. My only quibble is the noise level when you sit inside on a busy night. I go for the Bucatini Amatriciana. Hard to find and they serve delicious, huge portions.

We enjoyed the meal. The menu selections are extensive, and the food was hot when served. I had the gnocchi with spicy marinara sauce, which was delicious. The gnocchi were soft and like pillows—probably the best I’ve ever had. Service was great. Our main problem was the noise level. We had trouble hearing one another across the table. Still, I look forward to returning sometime soon.

I got to Bella Roma when I want the two C's - cannelloni and cannoli. They're both excellent there. It tends to be a little noisy because there are a lot of guests at dinner time. We happened to sit near a birthday party for a group of nine-year-olds so it was extra loud this time. But, the food is good and all of the faces there are friendly.

The salmon was very good but the scallops in the appetizer were pretty mediocre. The Cabernet Sauvignon that cost $32.00 was excellent for the price

Everything was perfect with the exception of the very loud and continuous barking of the dog at the table next to us. It was extremely annoying.

I have never been treated so bad... our waiter yelled at my mother who is an elder and he was beyond rude to our table. A chef and waiter didn’t showed up to work that night, but that should not dignify complete disservice to costumers, especially at a time when your customers could be and are federal employees that furloughed. We ended up leaving after ordering because the waiter was so abusive with his words.

Had a longer than expected wait because a few workers didn’t show, including the pizza maker so no pizza. The staff did their best and delivered a phenomenal meal, ensuring everyone was attended to as frequently as possible, with nothing but great attitudes toward everyone. I left full and content with the experience.

This is our favorite restaurant. We always have a great time here and the food is excellent. The prices are very reasonable too. Every one of the servers are excellent. It is pretty busy most nights so be sure to make a reservation.

Good fare! - Good selections. The whitefish is delicious. The bread could be tastier and the music was annoying. Would love some crooning neapolitan songs or classical.
Liked our waiter.

I have been here many times and the food is always excellent. The service by Roberto, the owner, is excellent ... he knows I am a slow diner and never rushes me. If you're a chocolate lover and they have the Flourless Chocolate Cake, go for it ... it's super rich and the best I've ever had. I always bring my own bottle of wine since the $6 corkage fee is more than reasonable!!!

First time here with a friend from out of town. If you plan an early dinner, there is space in the free parking lot! We were pleasantly surprised by the extensive menu at very reasonable prices. The filet mignon was offered with a peppercorn sauce, and while it was presented in two pieces rather than the tall single chunk one usually sees in restaurants, it was perfectly prepared, tender and delicious. Their handmade pasta was also quite good, cooked just right. We started with the arancini appetizer, which arrived as two large balls that required utensils to enjoy, but enjoy them we certainly did! The portions are generous; we both took some home for lunch the next day. Our waiter, Salvatore, was informative, attentive, with the right amount of good humor, and helped us select a wine that worked well with our dishes. The wine list, while not as long as the food menu, is also very reasonable. This restaurant was a terrific find and we will be back, as well as tout it to other Italian food lovers.

We go here about once a month for casual dining. We always take advantage of the $5 corkage fee and no extra cost for split salads (love the burrata salad). We hit a particularly busy time this past week and service suffered as a result. Also the noise level inside was so high we were barely able to talk. We will still go back, we'll just wait for an outside table where the noise level is much lower.
