Service and food were outstanding. I had the chicken Rigaletti which was chicken and eggplant parm. It was served with pasta, I ordered spinach. It was amazing and I do love their house salad dressing!

Scallops appetizer was excellent, but fried calamari had too much breading. Veal and lamb main courses were very good but pasta and mashed potatoes were nothing special.

We met some family there for a special occasion. Even though there was a baby shower going on in the function room and their buffet was in the middle of the dining room, the restaurant was still not that loud. Our server was great, she gave us time to talk and never rushed us to order. We'll be back.

Had a great Valentines Day dinner. Always love eating here, the food is always great. Jean our waitress was terrific.
My wife had chicken Marsala and a white chocolate cake covered in a Carmel glaze. I had Veal Parmigiana and a chocolate moose. Everything was perfect.
This restaurant is a unique combination of great neighborhood restaurant and fine dining. Prices are reasonable but considering the quality. It’s superior.

Will definitely come again!

My chicken Parmigiana was delicious. The chicken was moist and cooked perfectly! Yummy cheese! Excellent fresh salads and homemade pastas. The waitress was very cheerful, enthusiastic ad helpful with our meal selections. The Saturday night atmosphere was energetic and socially bustling with the live piano entertainment, sports on TVs at the bar area and diners socializing while enjoying their meals. I look forward to dining at Bella Costa again!

Second visit in 3 weeks. Did not disappoint. As usual, ordering one or more of the daily specials is a winning strategy. We had the lobster ravioli and a veal dish off the specials menu. As usual, the tremendous selection of desserts is an awesome way to end another terrific meal at Bella Costa.

First time there for brunch. Cute interior. It got really busy. Food was good, Bloody Mary was blah. It wasn’t a bad experience but it wasn’t worth the trip back for either. It did seem like they had some regulars so maybe they have had a more memorable experience.

We come to Bella costa often and this time was not the usual service we get here.
It was crowded when we arrived, but our server was not available often. She came to take our drink order, but we had no wine list given to us. After she gave us a drink menu, she disappeared for what seemed to be a long time before returning to take our order. One of the 4 of us has food allergies always handled well at this restaurant, but for some reason, his dinner came out much later than the other 3 dinners. No apology was given for his wait. We asked for bread, and the server told us since she thought the diner with food allergies might not be able to eat the olive oil served with the bread, she didn’t think we would want it at the table. As it turned out, he eats the bread and olive oil there all the time and there was no reason for her not to bring it, at least for the rest of us.
The food was good as usual. I hesitated to write a negative review as our experience is always positive.
Bella Costa is a neighborhood gem and has been there for 30 + years.
Their small plate option (until 7PM) is a great deal with still plenty of food.
I recommend Bella Costa to everyone. The piano music is a nice addition, although it does add to the noise level. If you request the back room. It is quieter, but you cannot hear the piano.

Bella Costa is a hidden gem in Framingham. The food is authentic and very much like the food I had when I was in Florence, Italy. Their fresh pasta is to die for (esp the pappardelle)! The service is great and the owners are absolutely lovely. I highly recommend going!

I've been to Bella Costa's before and enjoyed the apps, meals and drinks. I kept them in mind for future meals and events. Last year we had a work lunch there and we noticed an unpleasant odor upon walking in. This year, we had that same lunch and noticed the smell once again. I'm guessing there is a drain that is causing it. This is the only reason I didn't give 5 stars.

Terrible service last Saturday night. We decided to try this restaurant after reading some good reviews. Our waitress didn't acknowledge us or ask us for our drink orders until we had been seated for over 20 minutes. Waitress rarely came by and we ended up spending 3 hours at the restaurant due to the poor service and extended wait times. The food was ok, nothing special there are definitely much better Italian restaurants around (check out volturno down the street). We reached out via email to the restaurant but they did not reply, have given them over a week to respond and assuming they will not so writing this review. Definitely overall disappointing experience, would not recommend. Save your money and time for another choice.

We love Bella Costa! They never disappoint and we have brought many of our friends there. We were, however expecting a piano player the Wednesday night we visited but he was sick. We had a family member visiting from Norway who loved the food. No piano but otherwise a perfect evening.
