Had a tke order of two pizzas to go. Ate them at Check6 Brewery (no food served).across the street. Margareta and Americano were really good -- piping hot with a lightly darkened crust. Fed five hungry folks with a piece or two left over.

I wanted a healthy meal and was craving vegetables, so ordered the eggplant parmigiana and a salad. The salad was super fresh and the eggplant parmigiana was both my lunch and dinner - and was excellent - the best I've had in years! Staff was also friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this restaurant and the attached pizza/carry out shop!!!

What a pleasant surprise- The back dining room was very nice. We shared a bottle of wine and enjoyed ravioli , calamari and lasagna. There was an extensive menu, so don't just go for the pizza.

Will give them another try someday as we have normally enjoyed our pizzas there. Salad was generous size and tasty. Pizza was soggy in the middle and no one asked.

Wife and I were treated to a fantastic dining experience starting with Vongole en brodo (Tom's Clams). Fresh whole clams with pancetta, spinach, roasted red peppers and mushrooms in a delightful broth. Beautiful appetizer and am not ashamed to say we emptied the bowl to the last drop. We both had the Di Pasta Especiale with two soft shell crabs... More

The town of Southport rolls up the sidewalks early on Sunday, so we were excited to see the lights on in Bella Cucina. The hostess had seen us pull in & stayed open for us, since we got there right at closing. I hate being "that" person, so we quickly apologized & said we would leave but NO... They were... More

A+ for Bella Cucina, the staff, decor and food were excellent. The garlic oil for the dipping bread was the best we have tasted, asked for additional bread. From the spaghetti and meatballs to the shrimp scampi, wonderful all around. Second visit was for pizza, we all ordered the Poco pizza, which is the individual size. The waitress said it... More

Good pizza crust! Only complaint is that I don't like banana peppers on a veggie pizza! Eggplant Parmesan was made to order! This is getting to be a regular place to eat!

Good Pizza, priced well. Only place I know in the area that makes zeppoles (if you're from NJ you know what I mean). Like the fact in the quick serve area that I can grab my own beer when I need a refill.

I have seen some negative reviews and I don't know what happened?? We have eaten here multiple times and the food is excellent. The service is also exceptional and the atmosphere very good.
