Bella Gelateria Yaletown is Open!

  1. I see they open at 8 am....probably the only time there won't be a line...

    1. I wonder if the new place is decorated like the first location - with articles about the owner. His gelato is awesome...but what a guy..

      1. The decor is very bright and white with the back wall in that semi-dark wood. It's a nice room with obviously a lot of window frontage. We did go last night, saw the lineup and my heart sank, went to the hostess stand and asked how long the wait was for dinner and we were seated within 5 minutes. The crazy line was just for gelato.

        Those people were insane because the pizza is really, really good. Really good. We tried the burrata and foccacia (good) and the insalata mista (tasty) but the pizza is the star. Though the pizza menu itself could use a little more differentiation (personal opinion), the crust is really nicely flavoured and texturally right in the centre of soft-chewy-charred-crisp zone. Toppings are very classic.

        Here is a photo of the Diavola. I want more.

            Breakfast of champions! I also like a Roli Roti porchetta sando at 8:30 when in SF :-). Great to hear there is another pizza contender on the map, especially in the Yaletown area, which is a bit challenged foodwise.
