I have eaten here a few times, all of which were delicious. Even my husband, who can be very picky, loves the food. My favorite is sausage cacciatore, but the Hungarian Goulash is superb. Can discount the spaghetti and meatballs either. All so tasty and...fresh. We will be back!More

Greeted the minute we sat down by the chef, who explained the background and dinner options. All had different Italian and Hungarian dishes that were superbly prepared and presented. Family owned business that aims to please. The portion size was just right and the price...was a great value for home style cooking. Must allow sufficient time to dine as all meals are individually prepared from fresh ingredients. Sauces and salads are made from scratch each day. Perfect model for a family owned restaurant. Will definitely revisit when we're in Hiawassee, GA.More

We just found our home away from home! We were blown away with a legendary dining experience today, and will claim this amazing and AUTHENTIC HOMEMADE CUISINE as our all time favorite restaurant. This GEM of a restaurant is owned by two amazing people, a...husband and wife team, Connie and Emil. We feel so blessed to have met these amazing people because it is very clear that they are 100% devoted to providing great food, and a cozy atmosphere to their patrons! Connie and Emil are so appreciative for each, and every customer as well and it shows. When we walked in, we were greeted by Connie and Emil, and they made us feel like we were home visiting family. Their warm and inviting smiles along with their kind words were so welcoming. What solidified the fact that Casa Bella was now our favorite restaurant was also when we learned that Connie only uses the best ingredients, and she has an intense love of keeping recipes authentic. Then when she took the time to go over the menu, and answer our questions we knew that she cares deeply. We decided to have the AUTHENTIC CHICKEN PAPRIKASH. The first words that came to mind upon the first taste was "TOTALLY COOKED TO PERFECTION" The chicken was so TENDER, and the EXTRAORDINARILY RICH CREAMY SAUCE with just the right amount of paprika just made me want to do the HAPPY DANCE! Connie brought us a plate of delicious FRESH VEGGIES with that straight from the garden taste and freshness! Then these heavenly GARLIC KNOTS arrived on our table piping hot from the oven.....Oh my goodness, the mouth watering delishiness...how perfect! We can't wait to return because we want to start at the top, and try everything on the menu. When you find a restaurant with owners that aren't afraid to use the best ingredients, provide great prices, and stand on strong work ethics...well you MUST SUPPORT THEM. Oh did I mention that they are indeed true PATRIOTS? Well, they should be rewarded for their giving hearts, and they love the USA so much, and they're not afraid to share that either. We love this people!!! This isn't just any restaurant, but a lifetime of passion for providing the best of the best AUTHENTIC CUISINE at AFFORDABLE PRICES to their patrons, that they love and cherish! Bountiful, and Boundless, Blessings of Good Health, Safety, and Prosperity to Connie and Emil. Thank you!More

This is not a "new" restaurant around here, but we just tried it. Wish we had tried it a long time ago. Tiny - only six tables. The owner is the only one working there, so don't expect a fast food meal. The food was...excellent, though. The owner (Connie) cuts up your salad after you order - finds out what you do and don't want in it. I had eggplant parmesan and my husband had spaghetti bolognese. We saw several other things we will go back and try. Give it a try -- you'll like it and be helping out a small local business. You can take your own bottle of wine and there is a very small corkage fee.More

The owner of this restaurant has an excellent ability to create wonderful Eastern European and Italian dishes. She knows how to prepare her food with an artistic talent as well and is very welcoming to each customer. The process of ordering from the menu will...require you to be patient as she is the chef as well as she waits on each table to see what they would like to order. We thoroughly enjoyed our culinary visit to Casa Bella Restaurante and will plan on returning in the future.More

We ordered the Hungarian Goulash and Chicken Paprikash. Both dishes were fabulous. I certainly did not expect to find this very European bistro in Young Harris.

What a delightful discovery. Casa Bella is a great composition of all the elements that make a restaurant good. Excellent food, both Italian and Eastern European. A moderately priced menu with ample servings. An attentive, friendly and professional service. A demonstrable willingness to please the...client. A welcoming, warm and engaging owner/chef.More

Eating at Casa Bella is like eating at your mom’s house - assuming your mom cooks fantastic Italian dishes. It is a small place and Connie, the owner, is also the wait staff and the chef. Don’t go if you’re in a hurry, it’s not...fast food. She makes each dish to order and brings it to your table piping hot. The sausage cacciatore is amazing. She also serves Eastern European dishes like stuffed cabbage, Hungarian goulash and chicken paprikash.More
