THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bella Mia Restaurant & Bar Restaurant Review

: The bones of an historic building --- brick walls and aged wood --- add to the romantic setting of this Italian-California eatery emphasizing fresh seasonal ingredients. The wrap-around 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 dishes such as the trio of ravioli, sandwiches or main-dish salads. Fresh pastas make up a large part of the menu during both lunch and dinner. 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.
