Bella Blu Restaurant Review

: If blue and yellow are your favorite colors, you'll like this bold contemporary Northern Italian eatery with its lively bar scene and imaginative, if pricey, food. Longtime chef Paolo Floess continues to turn out quality wood oven pizzas, zesty pastas and seafood. Dishes include pan-seared chicken paillard, and black pepper tagliatelle with wild boar rag├╣ and porcini mushrooms.
