Our dinner at Belle Notte was delicious. We had the pappardelle bolognese from the winter menu and chicken piccata. The food was fresh and well presented and our server, Geoffrey, was friendly and attentive.

I can't praise this place enough. It is delicious. Every. Single. Bite. We ordered wood-grilled divers sea scallops over linguine and manicotti. We both had salads and iced tea and finished with a chocolate souffle. The service is impeccable. We eat at Bella Notte every time we visit or pass through and we'll continue to do do so!

The food is delicious - love the bread and Italian dipping sauce. I generally order one of the chicken dishes, which are always excellent. The décor hasn't changed in years, and it never ceases to amaze me how relevant and interesting it is. The downside to Bella Notte are the drinks - you definitely don't get a "good pour" at... More

I was visiting Lexington with some girl friends this weekend and we were looking for a good spot for dinner. Since Bella Notte had such great reviews, we decided to give it a shot! I'm also gluten free and it appeared they had some good options. We arrived just before the dinner rush and were seated right away. Our waitress,... More

The Italian food that they serve is very good. After we put in our order, they give us fresh; warm baked bread and seasoning to mix with the olive oil on a small plate for dipping your bread in. It is really good. We can almost make a meal with just the salad and the bread. They have a beautiful... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner with friends at Bella Notte. My husband and I had not been back for some time and we found the food, the service, and the atmosphere even better than we had remembered. Several in our party ordered from the special fall menu and others from the regular options. Ingredients were of good quality and well... More

Looking for a brief oasis for lunch? Look no further then Bella Notte. For around 10 dollars, you can enjoy a variety of choices. I initially was scared to try a lunch that would be surrounded by carbs from bread ad pasta. I was so wrong. There is soup, salad, grilled chicken, grilled fish, healthy veggie choices and yes, bread... More

So glad I trusted other reviews about this restaurant. The food each of the 6 of us ordered was absolutely delicious. The restaurant was like stepping into a piece of Italy. It was welcoming and charming. Enjoy!

We went to Bella Notte because of its Trip Advisor ratings. Initially we were sceptical. It is a barn of a place at the edge of a shopping mall accommodating large numbers of diners. We also (based on our previous night's experience at another Lexington restaurant) feared excessive noise. All of our worries were totally without foundation. We were served... More

Love Bella Notte - I visited there twice when I was in town on business. Love the dining room with the tree. Food is really good too.
