not a comfortable experience. 1/24/2012

This is on the tourist strip and is full of tourists. It is so loud. The food was average at best. It simply was not a comfortable experience. more

food was not so great 1/23/2012

I heard very good reviews on this restaurant but is wasn't good as I expected.... My friends pasta was dry and hard(undercooked). I had chicken and it was very salty. Location is good but food was not so great.. more

Fast and Good! 7/21/2009

After walking Hollywood Blvd looking for a restaurant prior to my movie, my friend and I walked into this neighborhood jewel. There were quite a lot of people dining there that evening, but we were lucky and snagged a table. I had the chopped bella salad with greens, salami, mozzarella, balsamic, avocado and my friend the roasted eggplant parmiggiano appetizers, which I had to snag from him because it was so delicious. For our main courses he had the duet of salmon and halibut, which I think is a nice twist to offer both in one dish, and I had the gorgonzola dolce cheese crusted medallions of beef with a comforting parmesan risotto. The risotto was a little salty, I think from the use of grana padano cheese, but contrasted harmoniously with the sweetness of the blue cheese. We shared a bottle of Luigi Righetti Amarone at only $60, which is unheard of in price for such Venetian libations!, but was a steal for it's youthful maturity, impeccable taste and medium body. Our fast server Beth was a complete rockstar! When I am in Hollywood again I will for sure re-visit the diamond in the rough. Pros: Great Speedy Staff more

Wonderful Food! 7/19/2009

Bella is a great date restaraunt, but also is very family friendly. Their food is wonderful, and I highly recomment their Lobster Ravioli. They have a great dessert menu, and their servers are very helpful and caring. Overall, its a great place to take family or friends for a great night out. Pros: Wonderful Service more

Great Atmosphere 7/19/2009

I took my Mother to Bella while she was in town, and the atmophere was great, I have been here prevoiusly and the food is always consistant and great! Their ""create your own"" pasta dishes are excellent, and I would recommend this place to all of my family and friends. Pros: Best Pasta in Town more

Best Italian Restaurant in Town 7/19/2009

I went to Bella for the first time last month and have been back 4 times since. I was amazed at how good the food was. Best calamari in town and I especially loved the beef medallions and lasagna. They also have a great wine selection and full bar. Not to mention the service is amazing and the staff is friendly. I have to say I was impressed. Whenever entertaining family and friends I'll bring them here! Pros: Great Food, Wine, and Service more

Fub place with really good food. 7/19/2009

Great service, delicious food 7/15/2009

My friend and I went to Bella on a Friday night. We were right on time for our reservation and were able to be seated right away. The hostess was very friendly and sat us at a booth. The server was great.. very friendly and attentive. She had great recommendations for both food and wine. We ordered the spinach salad and the bruschetta as appetizers which were delicious. I had the pumpkin ravioli and my friend had the beef medallions. Both were amazing! The wine was great and the cocktails were fun (and strong!) For dessert we had the molten chocolate cake with vanilla gelato.. The hot and cold combo was the perfect end to a great meal. I would definitely go to bella again and recommend it to all of my friends! Pros: Awesome service, great food more

AMAZING! 7/15/2009

my husband and I don't go out very often for dinner with a little one at home so when we go out we make it count. based on a couple friends recomendations we decided to give Bella a try. Our Waitress was super nice and she really was helpful in all of our decisions for dinner, On her recomendation For dinner I had the Salmon and Halibut duo ( you get a filet of each!) and my Husband got the medallions of beef, my fish was great, I liked that it had two different sauces and you also get cheese ravioli with it too! but I gotta say the medallions that my guy had were AMAZING! even tho I loved my fish I was a little jealous of him lol they come with gorgonzola cheese over top with a red wine type sauce along with veggies and risoto, the meat was just super tender and cooked just right!\r I will definitely be back and will be telling my friends as well to come to this great palce! Thanks for a great night out with my husband! Pros: Fast seating, great ambiance, good price Cons: a little too dark more

This place is adorable! 7/15/2009

Love this place! My mom was in town this week, wanted to take her somewhere in Hollywood. Was recommended Geisha House but she said she really wanted Italian. We had a FANTASTIC time at Bella!!! Our server was simply delightful, and the food was delicious! The appetizer tuna tar tar was my favorite part!!! And I was in love with the red zin! I would recommend this place to anyone! Pros: Atmosphere, Food more

Watch the waitress 11/17/2008

This was my second time at Bella and I had the same thing. The food was different in how they matched the ingredients and the taste was ok. The ambiance is great, especially for a date. There was a young group of people at the bar and they looked like they were having a good time. The service was ok. However, the next Monday after my visit my debit card was charged for the tip amount again. I had been very generous with the tip towards a mediocre waitress. It seemed very rude, not to mention criminal that she charged my card again. I was able to have the charge reversed after calling the manager. This was the second time this had happened in this same restaurant in a year. The first time I had to go into the restaurant again and talk to the manager to rectify the situation. If I do go back I will be paying cash and the tip will be smaller if the service does not improve. Pros: The ambiance for dating Cons: The waitress double charging your ATM card more

Half price Tuesdays! 10/28/2008

I agree that the service is lacking, but I thought the food was good. On Tuesdays food is half-priced, which outweighs the mediocre service in my opinion. I probably wouldn't go on a full priced night, but I can overlook inattentive service when the bill for two people with wine is under $40. more

love the bow tie pasta! 7/30/2008

So, this is my third Dolce restaurant. I thought i'd check them all out to see if the group knows what they're doing. \r \r I liked this place. Intimate space, nice ambiance, and good food. Had the bow tie pasta, which was amazing. Not too greasy and had that clean flavorful taste.\r \r And couldn't eat enough of that bread and dipping sauce they give out when you sit! \r \r My date had the salmon, which was good too. more

Major Let-Down! 5/30/2008

Food was typical for L.A.... nothing special to note. For those prices, you'd expect it to taste good. I love how people are surprised when food actually tastes good these days - it's like, we've forgotten that instead of it being a variable, that element should be a GIVEN. \r Service was bad.\r Drinks were okay - again - for the price, you should be getting a Golden Goose Egg with your martini.\r Overall - not impressed. I'd go someplace else for the money. Pros: L.A. scene Cons: Bad service, food was whatever, drinks did not meet standards. more

Great Pasta and Beautiful Decor 5/28/2008

I had my birthday dinner at Bella a week ago because ive heard nothing but great things about it and I was really impressed. The food was DELICIOUS and probably one of the best Italian food restaurants around. It wasnt hard at all to get a reservation for a large party and they were really busy the night we went. Fun atmosphire and a great place to go for dinner. ---the lasagna is outstanding and the fresh berries dessert plate is good too. Pros: Service, FOOD! Cons: n/a more

Bad service, would expect better from the Dolce Group 5/22/2008

My drink was good, the food was good, the service was NOT. There were seven of us at dinner and I felt like our waiter could care less because he knew he was getting an automatic gratuity. He was hard to find in the tiny restaurant and kept on disappearing. The busboy was very nice though and we wished we could have left the tip for him instead. Also, despite the fact that the food was really good, it still felt overpriced, but we probably felt even more that way because we were treated so poorly. Pros: Food, drinks Cons: Service more

So-so Italian food 1/30/2008

When I went for dinner at Bella, it wasn't very crowded so I was quite surprised since it was a friday night, and most places in Hollywood are packed with people. (Which says somthing about the restaurant already)\r \r As for the service I received.. maybe it's a Dolce Group culture or they just simply don't train servers at all. Just like Dolce, Bella here has unfriendly staff who are not particularly helpful.\r \r The food is just so-so.. order anything but the gnocchi because that's what I tried and it came looking very un-appetizing. The taste was ok cus the sauce was made with pesto and pesto goes well with almost anything. However, the gnocchi was in a weird smell and it same very soggy, which it is not supposed to be like.\r \r My friend had the Filet Mignon and it was not as bad. Although the bad attitudes from the servers made everything seemed worse than they were already.\r \r So if you still want to try out this restaurant.. don't order the gnocchi! more
