Bella Mia Italian Restaurant Review: The bones of a historic building---brick walls and aged wood---add to the romantic setting of this Italian-California eatery emphasizing fresh seasonal ingredients. The wraparound bar is a comfortable spot to sip a cocktail and wait for a table. Service is friendly and attentive, and when the weather is pleasant, many opt to sit outside on the patio. Lunchtime sees a high demand for dine and dash, offering dishes like a half order of lasagna or linguine with crab, shrimp and mushrooms in a white wine and butter sauce. Start your dinner with one of the tasty flatbreads or the toothsome almond prawn cocktail. Fresh pastas make up a large part of the menu: try the salmon ravioli or opt for an old favorite like spaghetti and meatballs. Featured entrées include grilled items such as top sirloin steak in a Madeira wine reduction. Be sure to save room for the cappuccino mud pie.
