Bella Notte Ratings and Reviews

I had searched top places in Lexington, this wasn't anything grander than an Olive Garden. I had higher expectations especially with the higher prices, but this had no ambiance and nothing stand-out when it came to the food.

I went to Bella Notte with my girlfriend for her birthday. Service was wonderful, food was delicious, and the signature dessert (The Chocolate Souffle) was to die for. We have decided to add this to our list of restaurants we frequent.
For what we ordered, the price was on par. We did not eat there for a long time because it sounded more expensive than it is. Price is similar to that of Olive Garden.

Spending a weekend in Lexington. We had been very disappointed in food we had eaten so far. Belle Notte was a great change. The service was outstanding . They actually turned down the AC, because the vent was blowing on us. They also offered to move us.We enjoyed a great meal at great prices.

Took my girlfriend here for her birthday dinner. Quick service took us right to our table. Waitress provided good service and the food was prepared in a good timely manner not too fast to where we were rushed out and not too slow to where we were sitting there wondering if they'd forgotten about us. Food was excellent. Well worth it.
We have been going to Bella Notte since ...
We have been going to Bella Notte since 2000. My wife and I moved away from the area in 2013. We still have children in the area and every time we visit Lexington we go to Bella Notte. Also we have dined internationally and across the U.S. And Bella Notte consistently measures up to the top restaurants we have dined at. Thanks Bella Notte management and service team!

The Seasonal Bucatini w/Heirloom tomato sauce was absolutely delightful! Enjoyed bringing out of town friends to my favorite spot in Lex - I knew I could count on their meals being superb...and they were (1 had the scallops and 1 had the Ahi Tuna Steak).
My husband and I have been to Belle Nott ...
My husband and I have been to Belle Notte several times over the past 5 years when visiting Lexington. We always have wanted to return at least once each visit, but the last couple of times the service hasn't been that great. During our visit last week, if our server had just glanced our way when cleaning the table next to us or when passing on two other occasions I could have let him know we needed something but instead I had to eventually ask another server to send him to our table.
The food is always awesome and the prices are very good. Management just needs to train the servers to be more attentive.

We had not dined at Bella Notte for quite some time. We were there this time with a group for a birthday celebration. The prices continue to rise as the food quality and portions decrease. Service was just barely adequate and there were very few diners in the restaurant. One of our group ordered off the special brunch menu and was told she could help herself to the extra things that went with it but was not told where/what they were.
This was our first time to Bella Notte. ...
This was our first time to Bella Notte. What a lovely spot! The food was delish! You must try the sausage appetizer. It was sweet and spicy. Just the right amount before the main course was served. Also keep in mind that Thursday is 1/2 price wine night. The server did a great job of taking care of us but not being overwhelming. We will certainly go back again and again!

Always an enjoyable experience, this visit was no exception. Heather provided exceptional service, dinner was delicious, and as an added treat they had some delicious wines at 1/2 price on the bottle! Our only complaint was that another group get the last of the chocolate soufflés, but we survived by choosing a crème brule and pistachio ice cream filled puffs.

Fabulouso as always! It was my second dinner at Bella Notte that week (it really is my favorite place!). I was excited to try the new summer menu! The Arancini was a delightful start to our meal as the spicy tomato jam was the tastiest of accompaniments for it! We all really loved the Market Salad - the summery veggies were a fresh and crisp array of flavors, the strawberry balsamic was a lovely touch and I love the addition of the farro!!! I also totally enjoyed my Summer Lasagna - the presentation with the 2 colorful sauces was pleasing to the eye and the robust flavor of both sauces were a delight to the palate! The layer of squash was wonderful! Loved our meal as usual! Bella Notte rocks!!!
Good but Average Food
The waitress seemed to be in a rush. The Italian food was average. The pasta was overcooked. The veal saltimbocca had a white sauce and lacked flavor. I wouldn't order it again. The place was bright and cheerful with a fake tree in the center. Our family is Italian so, we may be used to better Italian food.
No matter the menu always a delight!
As always a fabulous meal. I tend to get caught up in the seasonal menu because the options are always delicious! But having eaten off of the spring menu so many times and with the summer menu about to debut, I was having a hankering for an old standby, the Penne Arrabiatta, and was definitely not disappointed. Craving satisfied and I can't wait to try something from the summer menu Friday night !
Bella Notte is our favorite Italian rest ...
Bella Notte is our favorite Italian restaurant in Lexington by far. They do an excellent job at changing up the menu based on the seasons and there is almost always something new. Great food and some of the best servers around.
