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

We were only in town for the weekend, and we ate here twice! They have an amazing garlic oil that they bring to the table with bread. We took home leftovers it was so tasty! My friend is gluten free and loved their pasta and pizza. Would definitely recommend!!!

Cassidy was our server and she did an exceptionally fine job. She was able to get a special dish prepared (mussels and linguini) that was not on the menu. Mussels and sauce were excellent and there was plenty of bread to ensure no sauce escaped the palate. Other diners were pleased with their pizzas and appetizers and salads. Have not... More

6 of us had dinner in which one meal was better than the next. Ms. Tracy came out from the kitchen and we had the opportunity to praise her food and be amazed by her personality. Our service was EXCELLENT. 3 of of our 6 were under 14 so extremely family friendly with their smaller portion offerings. Can't wait to... More
