Bella Sera Restaurant Review

: A solid neighborhood trattoria operated by seasoned restaurateurs, Bella Sera features an extensive menu of classic and modern Italian fare in a handsome dining room with linen-clad tables and an open kitchen. In the rear lies an open-air dining room, which is also ideal for private events. We recommend beginning with crisp, lightly fried calamari fritti or fritto misto, both distinguished by a smooth basil aïoli for dipping, or a refreshing seasonal fruit salad that makes a nice alternative to the kitchen’s respectable renditions of the ubiquitous caprese or Caesar. Good pizzas emerge from the prominent oven, and pastas include penne in vodka-infused tomato cream sauce; lobster, ricotta and spinach ravioli; and generously portioned home-style lasagna. Chicken piccata, veal Marsala and nicely prepared branzino round out the versatile menu. Service is professional and a short Cal-Italian wine list emphasizes value. In the heart of vibrant downtown Monrovia, Bella Sera is a pleasant option for moviegoers or shoppers.
