Best Italian food in Chicago. We traveled all the way from Florida to eat there.
The bread was good. We shared a Caesar salad. It was a very generous portion and was good but slightly overdressed. We also shared the red snapper special ($36 I think). It was a small portion and definitely nothing special. My last bite was so bad that I would’ve spit it out if there were paper napkins! Ugh! Service was good and the atmosphere was fine but that fish was NOT special.
Service fine. Food was boring. Time to kick up the flavor. Charges too much for one item on a plate. Order was also wrong.
Service was horrible. Waiter acted like he had a million better things to do than give us the time of day. My first glass of wine was a splash, my second was filled to the brim. The table next to us had their food dropped off and had to serve themselves because the waiter was no where to be found. I’ve never tipped less than 20% in my life but this service was just inexcusable.
The food and service were great when we got to our table were great. They could've used a second bar tender to serve the clients because he was a little slow. The restaurant was very loud.
The quality of the food and pasta was fabulous! The calamari was the best I've ever had!
Been going to Bella Notte from when it first opened, never disappointed!
Great spot for a pre Blackhawk dinner.
Best food!!! Incredible meal, everything was amazing. Sausage and peppers, octopus was to die for along the best raviolis and then it was time for the meal!! So good, great people and great atmosphere for a night out at an authentic restaurant.
A+++ per usual. Love this place!
Birthday celebration. Excellent food, excellent service.
I absolutely love this place! Never does it disappoint! The owners always come by and say hello, and the food is the best Italian that I’ve had in Chicago, hands-down… No questions asked!
Wonderful food. Huge portions. Delightful wait staff. Don’t miss this one if you r in the neighborhood
I have dinned here many times and have always had a great experience. Food, Service everything spot on.
We had 13 people and I couldn't have picked a better place! Great food, attentive but chill service, super accommodating and so reasonable! We were fighting for the last bites of the fried calamari and sausage and peppers appetizers. The pasta (we got vodka sauce, Alfredo and Arrabiata), was so delicious, as were veal parmesan and chicken marsala.
The mussels in the mussels and linguine were some of the juiciest and most delicious I've ever had--and I live on the East Coast!
The servings are huge (it's family style), so everyone was happy to take home leftovers. And it was only $38 per person, and no one could have eaten or drank another bite. Una bella notte, indeed! Grazie mille!
Fantastic food and service.
Lobster fra diavolo was outstanding.... including enough linguini for 4 people ..!!!
. we were only 2 and my date ordered filet mignon.. lots to take home. One of the best dinners out in months.
Excellent food and service
Love the food. We have been going there for years
Great Italian food, excellent timely service and a solid wind list. Great value for someone not looking to pay for something crazy in the west loop.
Best marinara and service and food. Our favorite.
Great food and service. We had a party of 9 people and everyone enjoyed their meals and took what they could not finish home with them.
been a customer for years--with all the great italan restaurants in the city--belle note is reliable for good food-no rush service--a very pleasant evening--portions are enough for a few meals--plan on eating pasta a few times at home
Great, traditional style Italian food and generous quantities. Sauces were perfectly seasoned.
A bit too noisy for my golden ager ears, but the overall experience was still excellent.
We loved dinner at Bella Notte. The 8 finger cavatelli pasta in vodka sauce is amazing.... we shared it as a family for an appetizer. I had the veal vesuvio and it was delicious. Easily, Bella Notte is a top 3 Italian restaurants in the city for me.
The ambiance was relaxed, the host was very welcoming and the bartender friendly and helpful. The server was very attentive without being intrusive and the food was great. After dinner we were able to sit and finish our conversation without being made to feel guilty or rushed. An overall very enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend Bella Notte to others for lunch or dinner.
We loved it! It was our first time visiting. The linguini and clam sauce was outstanding. Love how they serve their olive oil. Will definitely go back!
Good small Italian work large portions. Service could be better and more small restaurant like. Disappointed that although when making reservations we were celebrating or son's birthday and again when ordering, no mention of the same.
I love this place, Ramon and his staff are fantastic
The food and service was exceptional. Portion sizes are extremely generous. Have been going here for years-still in top 5 of favorite restaurants.
We've been coming to Bella Notte for over 10 years and have our favorite menu items. The Fafalle Francesca is wonderful and this is one of the few Italian restaurants that serve roasted peppers...outstanding! Also recommend the Vesuvio potatoes.
The experience was fantastic as usual. Food and service was great and my client really enjoyed the meal. Was a big success!!
This was one of our favorite restaurants until this past Saturday night. There were only 2 other tables with customers having dinner, so that cannot excuse the poor service we experienced. We placed drink orders within minutes of being seated. 2 wine orders came right away. 5 minutes later, the martini arrived. The decaf coffee never arrived until we reminded our waiter repeatedly that we wanted coffee for our friend.
Appetizers and soups were ordered, but came out of the kitchen in lapsing time intervals. 2 salad entrees arrived together but another entree came many minutes later. Finally, we asked to split the bill on 2 credit cards, but both bills were charged to one credit card. It was truly a comedy of errors, and one we do NOT want to experience again.
Our group of 4 totally enjoyed the delicious food, our server Alberto & the front, window table. We’ll return soon!
Excellent lunch of salmon velasco! Bread was a variety and warm and fresh. Sat in front with doors open on a nice sunny day.
Amazing food and amazing staff. Everything was perfect.
Mothers Day, my wife’s favorite Italian restaurant
The food was amazing from the appetizers to the entrees and desserts, The baked cavatelli was delicious and the service was excellent. Must try the Tiramisu!
