I have been to this restaurant several times now, and it is great! Being a lasagna lover, that dish is usually my test. There's is fantastic. And hot throughout! The crab flat bread app was wonderful as well. Carol was our server the otherday and was so accommodating. We were a late table and were not rushed or made to feel like we were a problem. This is a great place. Go!

    I was nly there once, but remember being very full upon leaving and the space is very crowded. May have to try again before a Canes game.

      Am I the only one that is feels lukewarm about Bella Monica? I've tried them a number of times and thought the food was pretty typical Anglo-Italian fare. I've found the service to be suffocating. I appreciate friendliness, but I felt that they were trying way too hard. I don't want to be asked a dozen times how everything is or patted on the back everytime I get up to leave or come back from the bathroom. I expect that I'll probably get flamed for this, but it's just my honest two cents. But, I really do wonder if I'm missing something because I've never seen what the fuss is about.

      Oddly, I like Gravy downtown, which Bella Monica has a hand in.
