We had a grand time celebrating a family birthday. Fifteen people along with four children. Service was wonderful and the food is always the best. La Bella in Ghent really knows how to handle small and large groups.

Enjoyed a nice and relaxing dinner. Don't let the shopping front fool you. We had a nice server and enjoyed the multitude of options. The Chicken Parmesan was very good. They had a great apple flavored old fashioned, definitely worth getting!
