Had dinner here last night, and it was simply fantastic. I had the Ravioli special, portabello ravioli with beef medallions in a rich sauce. The server suggested a Chianti to pair with it. It was fantastic. My dinner date had the fresh sea bass. Also fantastic. And the portions were perfect. Pair that with great atmosphere and great service, and... More

Located near the Hampton Inn in South Port this establishment has several dinning choices a deli-like option where there are pub tables and you can order pizza by the slice or whole pie among their other offerings. Another sections has a bar. Tables and booths with sports on the tv 's. The third area was a more upscale sit down... More

I received a gift certificate from Bella Cucina which was donated to our local fire department. My wife and I shared a large vegetarian pizza accompanied by side salads and complimentary garlic knots (GREAT). Pizza was very generous and more than satisfied our hunger. Service was good but I'm am so tired of hearing "No problem." when the customer says... More

A change in the marinara sauce complimented the popular family recipe meatballs. The previous sauce, I thought, was too heavy for my taste. We were told by the staff that an effort to improve the sauce was a labor of love that took several weeks to perfect. The work by the owner and executive chef was a success. The new... More

I ate here because Tripadvisor said Bella Cucina had gluten free options. Their menu states that they have gluten free pasta, but I was informed that the pasta was cooked in the same water as the regular pasta. Anyone that has a severe gluten allergy should steer clear of this place as they obviously don't have an understanding of how... More

Bella Cucina has consistently good dishes. Many of the dishes are Southern Italian, but they also source local seafood to create interesting and tasty dishes. They also have smaller portions (Voglia, or Cravings) of their more popular dishes, but do not expect to go hungry with these. The portions are very generous, and at times with a starter salad, we...

Very convenient location if you are staying at the Hampton Inn, just walk across the parking lot. My wife and I had subs for lunch and the were made perfectly. Some of the best subs I have had in a while. Later we decided to try dinner there and it was delicious and our waitress was wonderful. We ended up... More

Once my girlfriend and I walked into the door it took 5 minutes before we were even greeted. Then another 5 to get seated. All servers were wearing something different and it was confusing at times. Thought they should all be wearing the same type of dress shirt atleast. I ordered the Lasagna for dinner. The server asked what kind... More
