Warm, rustic experience with rich, flavorful dishes

Walking into Bella in Maryville is like stepping into a little corner of Italy. It’s a place where the aromas of garlic and tomatoes wrap around you like a comforting blanket, and you know you’re in for something special. The ambiance is warm and inviting, with a touch of rustic charm that makes you feel right at home.

Start with a glass of Chianti. This wine is the embodiment of Italian tradition—bold, rich, and slightly tannic, with notes of dark cherries and a hint of spice. It’s the kind of wine that doesn’t just complement your meal; it elevates it, turning every bite into a celebration of flavor.

The Meatballs Pomodoro are a testament to the beauty of simplicity done right. These aren’t your average meatballs. They’re tender, juicy, and packed with flavor, simmered in a tomato sauce that’s been perfected over generations. The sauce is fresh and vibrant, with the right balance of acidity and sweetness, clinging lovingly to each meatball. It’s the kind of dish that makes you close your eyes and savor every bite, a reminder that sometimes, the simplest dishes are the best.

Then there’s the Rigatoni Ragu. This dish is comfort food at its finest, the kind that sticks to your ribs and warms you from the inside out. The rigatoni is cooked perfectly al dente, the ridges catching every bit of the rich, meaty ragu. The sauce is a labor of love, slow-cooked to develop deep, layered flavors that come together in a harmonious symphony. It’s hearty, satisfying, and utterly delicious, the kind of dish that makes you want to lick the plate clean.

Bella in Maryville isn’t just about the food, though. It’s about the experience. The warm, welcoming atmosphere, the attentive service, the feeling that you’re part of something special. It’s the kind of place where you can sit back, relax, and let the flavors transport you. Whether you’re here for a quiet dinner or a lively gathering with friends, Bella offers a slice of Italy that’s sure to leave you with a full belly and a happy heart.
