Bella's Italian Café

Bella's Italian Café Review

Carnivores are not slighted here, but it is often more delicious to go meatless at this SoHo (South Howard Avenue) eatery. The lasagna napoletana is bursting with four kinds of cheese, and the garlicky basil-tomato sauce gives it just the right bite. The grouper alla calabrese (lightly battered and sautéed with red wine, capers, olives, and onions) is another memory maker. Bella's is not too highbrow to ignore pizza and calzones—there are dozens of options. Offerings like these have kept the restaurant popular since 1986. If you're in a rush, there's curbside pickup.
