Under guidance of Italian Chef Guilio, the pastas and other main courses delighted us every night. I must admit I repeat my favorites of raviolis and fettuccine He also makes a paella special where he talks about the history and ingredients of the dish.

Description
One of Cabo's most beloved chefs, Emanuele Olivero has brought his thoroughly authentic regional Italian specialties to Bella California for your enjoyment on the terrace directly above Medano Beach. A romantic moonlit dinner across from the famous Arch is unforgettable and will be a highlight of any trip to Los Cabos. Also open for buffet and a la carte seaside breakfasts and lunch, featuring the chef's fantastic pizzas from the brick oven.
