This was our second visit to Bella Notte, and it did not disappoint. The staff here is excellent. The host handled a busy room very efficiently and courteously. The waitstaff is super-friendly and knowledgeable, without being fawning or pushy, and the bussers work the whole room and do not skip a beat. This is a well-run place. I waited tables for seven years, so I really appreciate this kind of service and the hustle that goes into it. The food is really quite good, and the portions are unbelieveable! You have a choice of full order(bigger portion, comes with soup or salad) or half order (still so darn big). For about three dollars more, the full order is definitely the bargain, because, beside the soup/salad, you get enough left-overs for two more meals. Unreal. Try the portobello mushroom appetizer! It has an intense flavor and an excellent consistency. The last time we came, we ordered dessert(tiramisu..yum)and were given a complimentary fruit plate which was no small thing...large slices of honeydew, cantaloupe, and a whole orange! We didn't order dessert this time, but were offered the fruit plate again. We were tired, so we said no, but quite a nice touch. Try this place!
