Bella Notte Ratings and Reviews
Not as anticipated. Expecting a really great experience based on all of the reviews, not what we experienced at all. Between the terrible service and pasta that tasted like it came straight out of a box, I cannot recommend this place at all. Really not sure how it has such good reviews. Much more of an Olive Garden vibe rather than "romantic" as advertised.
Bella Notte is one of my favorite restaurants. We drive over an hour from Shelby County to this wonderful place. Everything I have ordered has been delicious & well prepared. I love the swordfish & the pasta dishes are well worth the drive. Desserts are decadent & affordable. Tiamisu is my favorite, as it is light & just enough after dinner. I do suggest making a reservation as it can be very busy.
The food and atmosphere was very good as always. The only reason I didn't give our experience 5 stars was the server. She was efficient, but had zero personality. I don't think she spoke 10 words to us the entire time. Other than that, we had a wonderful dinner.
I stumbled upon this restaurant on a quick 2 night trip to Lexington. Being vegetarian, there are limited options for good cuisine, so myself and a group of friends (many of them also vegetarian) decided to go eat at this Italian restaurant. What I expected was generic vegetarian Italian food: cheesy, one-note pasta. What I got instead was food that was simply divine to eat. Our waitress was incredibly helpful and very cheerful, and the entire experience was surprisingly quick. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who happens to come to Lexington.
P.S. I ordered manicotti with tomato-basil cream sauce. Simply astounding.
This is one of my go to places so extremely disappointed this visit. My food came out cold, sent back and it returned to table 3 minutes later - reheated and again not hot. Our waiter greeted us, took order and due to large party at another table didn't return until bringing the check. Other staff served our meals, and never checked after my meal was brought back to see how it was - would have sent back again, but gave up when nobody came by. Empty salad plates sitting on table and were not cleared until after entrées served and water glasses were left to go empty and never refilled. Again, very disappointed This visit.
While we always look forward to dinner at Belle Notte and our food was excellent on this visit, the service was a bit slow. I don't think this is the norm but it was a busy night after a basketball game which likely explained the Sat night crowd. I think I will pay more attention next time to the schedule of athletic events when I make reservations.
