Review 1:

We came across the great reviews and decided to check it out ourselves. My kids were craving pizza and they loved the pizza here! The service was very nice and friendly, my kids were a little hangry but the staff got them some placemats and crayons to color on right away. We got a large pizza and it was plenty for the 3 of us- myself, my 6 & 8 year olds. We took 3 slices home for breakfast.  Loved the cozy atmosphere and the Italian staff members to add that authentic feel. Much easier to park than in Littly Italy. We got a spot right in front. I'm doing Dry January otherwise would have enjoyed some of their wine. The prices were a little steep but in line with other restaurants of this caliber. It's worth it knowing you are supporting small business and also enjoying a nice restaurant.

Review 2:

Not what I expected but when I realized this place was in Old Town (tourist spot) I should have known. It smelled great outside this restaurant, like roasted garlic so I thought it would be really good. We ordered garlic cheese bread, fettuccine Alfredo with sun-dried tomatoes and a personal cheese pizza with garlic and basil. The garlic cheese bread had no flavor. Mozzarella was just placed plopped on the garlic bread. The garlic bread that came with the pasta was better. It would have been nice if the serve said that garlic bread came with the pasta instead of letting us order the cheese bread. There were only 2 of us. The fettuccine Alfredo was unbelievable bland. There was absolutely no flavor. It taste like the alfredo you get from the jar at the store. I need some salt and garlic. I never add additional salt to my food so this meant literally the pasta had no taste. The pizza was ok. It had a crazy amount of cheese. It was like I was just chewing melted cheese. You can taste the garlic once you take the cheese off. The drinks (coke and ginger ale) were $3.95 each!!! Again, I'm guessing the hike in price is because it's a tourist place. The total bill for 2 sodas, cheese bread, 1 entree and 1 personal cheese (8") pizza was $54. I would not come here again. Head to Little Italy for better Italian food at a much more reasonable and worth it price.

Review 3:

Pizza Bella has a charming indoor seating, a nice patio dining area and a 2 hour free parking for customers in the back of the restaurant. Their Shrimp Alfredo is my favorite, I could eat it everyday. The sauce is rich, creamy and luxuriant, It complements the perfectly salty sautéed shrimp mixed in the pasta. It is topped with 2 slices of buttery garlic bread. Chicken Parmesan is smothered in a melted combination of cheeses and marinara sauce. Each order comes with pasta, garlic bread and steamed vegetables. The pizzas are cheesy and indulgent with toppings. They also have calzones, sandwiches, soups, desserts and a great selection of vino and beer. There is nothing better than coming to a restaurant and be treated like a very special guest every time. Although it gets busy, you can always expect a smile and friendly service from the staff. Not only is Pizza Bella Italian Bistro award winning, it truly is "Old Town's best kept secret".
