If I worked in Cary, I'd eat here at least twice a week.

Coal fired pizza with fresh cheese, sauce and a little basil. I'm easy. Comes with a great little salad at lunch time for $9.00. That's probably the best deal in the Triangle. I know it's the best tasting. I also love the meatball appetizer. Calzones look wonderful. And everyone in the place looks like they're having a good time. That's what a really good restaurant does for us all.

  1. Thats what people are sayin.

    1. I'd be interested to know where they source their coal supply.

      1. This place has legit pizza. Real buffalo mozzarella, and top notch ingredients in all their dishes. The quality of the ingredients is somewhat reflected in the prices, but it is totally worth it. (For instance, if you're used to papa john's or domino's prices, don't be scared off.) I lived in New York for a decade, and since leaving there, have rarely found pizza that meets the quality of some of my favorite old school pizzerias in Manhattan (Lombardi's) or Brooklyn (Grimaldi's), and I count Bella Mia among few such places I have found. And in the South--who would have guessed?

        1. Great food, haven't been to Bella Mia in a while but need to get back. Their pies remind me a bit of Motorino out in Brooklyn, one of Batali's faves.

          I went right after it opened up and it was good then, but hopefully even better now...

          1. re: RonboNC

            Motorino also has an East Village location now.

          2. This is the best pizza in the Triangle. The chicken wings are somehow even better than the pizza. Coal oven herbed chicken wings. Heaven. They also tweet when they have fresh shipments of burrata, God's gift to cheese lovers. Their beer selection is small and well-curated, there are always great NC beers on tap as well as awesome craft beers from around the country.
