Best cosmo in a long time. Calamari appetizer wasn’t prepared as described in menu but it was okay. Love that they offer half portions of pasta dishes.

Food was excellent. We had the special homemade gnocchi with crabmeat, shrimp in a vodka sauce and the grilled seafood. Yummy! The waitstaff was attentive and one of the main waiters had a great personality. The other one could have used some, but very efficient no the less. Would recommend to all....

Everything was excellent. The only thing that needs improving is the noise level. If they could find ways to cut that down it would be great.

The food and service was very good. The only issue was that I made reservations for 4 people and I received an email from OpenTable that my reservation was changed to two people. They were still able to give me a table for 4.

From the bartender to the valet person, everyone at Casa Bella is friendly and professional. It goes without saying that the food is always excellent with enough to bring home for lunch the next day. They always make you feel at home.

First time we tried here due to the great reviews. The ambiance is casual, expected a little nicer based on prices. They wanted to sit us upstairs which was loud, bright, and sterile.They accommodated us and sat us downstairs. Wine list a little sparce especially few Italian wines. Great bruschetta. My wife's shrimp cocktail was very good, not great. My pasta fagioli was good, not great. My wife's scallops were tasty but she said a little rubbery. My pork special was very good. They forgot our sauteed escarole- when it came it was a little oily and not very garlicky or flavorful. They comped us a dessert sampler of tartufo, tiramisu and cannoli- all were delicious
We will likely try it once again to see how their other dishes fair

Had a 7:00 PM reservation for two on a Saturday night. Was seated upstairs at a too small table that was too close to other tables around it. Upstairs room also has little of the pleasant ambiance of the first floor dining rooms. Food was delicious and portions generous. Service a little spotty - ran out of water twice. Overall, a good experience, but would not eat upstairs again.

Excellent service and food choices. The wait staff is very friendly and professional giving ample time to enjoy a meal and know how to time the meal so that you are not rushed nor waiting unnecessarily. Great food and extensive wine list complete the experience in a positive way.

Made a reservation on a friends recommendation.
After reading all the fantastic reviews we were looking forward to our dining experience.
Food: was flavorful with a nice presentation, but overpriced for the quality and immediately chilled from a cold draft blowing overhead.
Wine List: Not really any Italian wines to speak of surprisingly considering the name of the restaurant.

Overall I gave it a 3 out of 5.

We celebrated a bday for a friend . We are regulars at this restaurant . Disappointed that they kept ? Our bar bill when 2 x we told them it was wrong ... also ordered 3 different desserts one of course for the bday girl ! They didn’t even take one dessert off bill for her special day . Probably won’t be back .

We had an overall great experience at Casa Bella. The food and service are exceptional. In addition to the menu specials, there are also off menu daily specials. The wine list is strong and reasonably priced. Ambience is warm and cozy. Weather permitting, there is a beautiful deck for outdoor dining. Reservations are definitely recommended.

When I arrived at Casa Bella with my party of five, they had no record of my reservation. Fortunately they were able to seat us but my companions were questioning whether or not I had made a reservation. The hostess was questioning whether I had a big head made a reservation. Not happy at all with the whole situation as it was a source of embarrassment. Why do they bother to do this?
