"I am late in writing this review but nonetheless I feel compelled to write it because our experience was so incredible! When first seated the table was not in a very favorable location ...since this was a special celebration for my husband and myself we wanted everything perfect. We didn't have to say a word...the owner picked up on it right away and escorted us to a perfect window table.
Now settling in to a lovely table and awesome piano music I said "this is a very sensible restaurant". Have no clue where that came from but I was pleasantly transported to my "urban days" and feeling the vibe and energy of a favorite uptown city restaurant!
We chose a beautiful Zinfandel, The Old Ghost, and to our happy surprise we were able to purchase 1/2 case...again, Tony, one of the new owners was extremely accommodating in assisting us with this purchase!
We enjoyed the Bruschetta Pomodoro and Cesar Salad to begin with...both delightful and satisfying. On to our entrees...Tuna Tapenade which was amazing. The quality of the tuna was right up there with the best I've had. My husband enjoyed the Bronzed Scallops...absolutely no complaints!
Top off this experience with wonderful service from our server and you know we will return!

"Christmas get together with friend for dinner started great with prompt attention by server for drinks and appetizer. Few patrons early evening but as restaurant business picked up, service went south and ended up being a two hour visit. Wait for entree was lengthy and hostess attempted to intervene with explaination that kitchen got slammed. Food was delicious and menu variety a big plus along with wine selections."

"I had parmesan encrusted flounder served with corn risotto and despite the risotto being served on the cool side, the meal was fantastic because the fish was flavorful and served right out of the oven. The risotto was good, just not as hot as the fish so perhaps they were prepared separately."

"The new owners have done a great job. The "open" ambience is a nice improvement. Continuing the Wednesday night "Wine & Dine" is a great idea. Just "Smaller Portions" in general is a great idea. Overall, the atmosphere is delightful ,the food is very good and the service is very profesional."

"We went for a birthday dinner date/celebration and were really impressed with the overrall ambiance and updated look of the restaurant. The bar was big and expansive with plenty of seating room. There was live-piano romantically playing in the background, and we were promptly greeted and show to our reservation. When we requested an alternate seat, the hostess happily obliged. During our meal, we were checked on multiple times--even by the manager (or owner?). I loved their house Pinot Noir (Lesse Fitch - CA) and our entrees were tasty as well. The Chicken Parm is a bit more fried than traditional breaded ones we're used to, but I loved the Shrimp pasta. Reasonably priced, with cheaper options, too (like pizzas!). Thanks for a great evening! We will definitely be back!"

"New ownership, redesigned dining room and huge wine tasting area. The food was tasty and portion generous. Option presented for glass of wine $13 or $19 for the bottle. Bottle an obvious better deal and you can take the remainder home.
Dining room looks much better without the Greek columns. We're glad they stayed in the neighborhood will be there weekly from now on.

"I have been to Virginia Beach quite a few times over the years and had never heard of Bella Monte so I decided to give it a go. The restaurant has recently gone through a change in owners and is in the midst of renovation's so when you walk in, it's a bit barren. Service was great and the hostesses were very friendly, but the food was so-so. Ordered one of their signature drinks and was told they were out of the base mix, so they couldn't make it. The calamari were tender, but the coating came off as soon as you touched it. The plate ended up looking like a plate of shells. The entree's were decent.
Not sure if I would go back next time I'm in town."
