Pros: read cons, none, none

Cons: Terrible service, bad tasting food, overpriced

This is an authentic Italian restaurant in San Francisco. Small, quaint and esthetically stimulating, Bella is a wonderful place to come with a date or bring your entire family. From the food to the wine to the cooks to the wait staff, everything is Italian and preserved in such a way where you almost feel transported to Italy. The food is amazing! It's REAL Italian, not American-Italian. You will see Italians (from Italy) eating here on a regular basis. Make reservations in advance as they are very busy.

Pros: environment, music!!, food!

I have been to Bella twice now and both times I've been very pleased. Although it can take a while to get your food, the waiters make up for it by being very attentive and offering lots of bread. The gnocci is the best I've ever had.
