We went with our large family to the Bella Sera Restaurant in Monrovia just outside Los Angeles in California purely because of their happy hour prices. When we ordered I made a mutual joke about this (yes, as long as it is before 7.00pm). When...More

Interesting and well thought out menu combined with a young and energetic wait staff make this a pleasant dining experience. Extra marks as their bread is really excellent. Minus for not having seafood forks to go with the Cioppino. As in the title, it’s pretty...More

I have been here several times for work events. Mostly had appetizers and drinks in the patio in the back. The appetizers were good. I especially liked the meatballs and the dates wrapped in bacon.

Italian food is at the top of my list of favorites. To find this restaurant and give them five stars means a lot. The food was extraordinary. Actually can’t wait to come back. This is one of the great ones to always remember.

Breakfast wrap with soy chorizo is so far the winner in Myrtle, Monrovia. The breakfast hash lacks taste. They also have unlimited coffee refill. All their other food.. superb!

I went with a group from work last night. Fortunately, they were paying so I could order the Frutti de Mare at $26. Delicious. It had a kind of smoky flavor. The bread was also very good, but I could have done without the hot...More
