Always a great experience at Bells costa. Apparently, the word is out as were the people - the house was packed! Even though we had reservations, there was a wait but, we lucked out got seats at the bar. Staff was a bit overwhelmed because of the massive turn out. It’s all good.

Service was slow and felt like we were not there. The food especially the veal was tough and seemed old. It was overwhelmed with oils. Very slimy. Other meals were below average. Will not be going back.

A little hidden oasis of a restaurant. Absolutely amazing from the meal, to extremely friendly wait staff. Parkings a little tricky but once you get a spot it’s smooth sailing from there! Highly recommend the banana foster for a desert you won’t regret it! Was reasonably priced and definitely following all COVID protocols and makes everybody feel comfortable. Will definitely be back! Accidentally ordered the wrong salad and they fixed it free of charge. Amazing service!

We made reservations for the night before Christmas Eve, and it was very quiet and comfortable. The service was excellent. We've been coming here for years and will continue to do so. And the food was outstanding!

The waitress was excellent. The restaurant was more crowded than normal which is great for them, so happy to see it. Things happened at a slower pace but that suited us just fine.

Enjoyed a lovely seafood risotto, scallops and shrimp were cooked perfectly.
Chicken combo one of the other party had was also very good.
But the Chefs chicken special was too salty.
Piano player is a very nice touch.

My dinner companion's beet caprese special appetizer was good -- an interesting take on a classic. Some of his gnocchi were tougher than others. My portobello mushroom appetizer was fantastic. Some of the seafood in my cioppino (fish, scallops) was a little undercooked; the rest (shrimp, mussels) were fine.

The bread and butter served with the meal was pretty unimaginative -- bland slices of Italian bread at room temperature. The butter pats were ice cold so it was hard to spread it. Olive oil might have worked better.

The live pianist is a great addition. This wasn't our best experience at Bella Costa, but it won't be our last. We really like this place.

LOVE Bella Costa and so glad their loyal following has kept them going during the pandemic. Their homemade pasta is terrific and I go back regularly for the eggplant parm. Have had other dishes and nothing has been lacking.
