We go to Casa Bella on a regular basis (at least 2-3 times per month) due to consistently good food and service. We have never had a disappointing meal, whether ordering a special or regular menu item. They also offer half-portions on most pasta dishes for folks with smaller appetites. Their complimentary bruschetta is a welcome extra. Shrimp Francese is one of my faves!

This was our first visit. The food was very good, calamari fritti appetizer, dinner entrees were a seafood ravioli special, and their homemade papardelle pasta in a pink sauce. Both tasty with deep flavors. My spouse had wine while I nursed a cocktail through dinner. Large portions so we did not take dessert here and did bring food home with us.

People did not come as dressed up as we thought was the norm for this restaurant. Noise level was on the high side but fine. Service was attentive but not intrusive. All in all, a happy dinner and looking forward to exploring the menu on return visits.

Have been to this restuarant many times and always have had a great meal. My wife orders breaded veal with a salad and I started off with a stuffed artichoke (TO DIE FOR) and than Veal Parmesan. All the dishes were cooked to order and served by a very attentive staff that constantly checked on us for drinks water or whatever we needed.

thank you Casa Bella, you never ever disappoint

This was our first time at Casa Bella . I have heard about it for years. We enjoyed the food. Their sauce taste homemade and was delicious. Everyone was happy with their choices. The services was attentive and professional.

Was wondering if there was a ramp for patrons with a walker or wheelchair I did not notice one.
The decor is nice but perhaps could use a little updating.

Overall would recommend to anyone for a lovely dining experience.

We really enjoyed our Saturday night dinner at Casa Bella. We were greeted by Angelo the owner. We waited about 15 minutes but we sat at the bar and enjoy a delicious Martini. Food was great, we look forward to going back soon.

Casa Bella is our local go-to restaurant. We love the food, service and atmosphere. My go to's are the shrimp fra diavolo and the fusilli amatriciana and of course the italian cocktail.

Casa Bella has always had consistently good food and good service! This was our first time eating on the outside deck which made the experience of dining here even more special. We have dined here many times throughout the years and we will continue to return especially now that we have discovered dining on the deck with a view of the lake.

We enjoyed our visit but the bar was so noisey so we went to our table quicker than we had liked. Service was excellent and so were the appetizers and the salad. Three of the four entries were very disappointing. No one had dessert. We have not been there for years and it was nice to see they were busy enough.

This was our least favorite time. It has always been our favorite restaurant. Not happy with service. Maybe we are spoiled because we always request Pablo who had off that night. Server was not friendly, waiters kept bumping my seat, took awhile for table to be cleared. Food was awesome as always.
