“When we arrived it looked like there were a lot of people waiting. Luckily they said it was only 30 minutes or less wait. The staff are amazing! While we waited they gave us bread, and offered drinks. Once seated our waiter was very friendly and attentive, didn't let more than a few minutes pass before either walking by or asking us if we needed anything. The food was amazing!!! The bread is so yummy, we got calamari app which was delicious. You've gotta try the pink sauce on your dish! We'll definitely be back!“

“Love Rothschild's!! I've been here for various occasions and each time has been an amazing experience! Highly recommend!!Food:Everything I've had here has been incredible! When I come for a girls night, we love to split the charcuterie board and meatballs. While not the most "Italian" food, the truffle frites are NOT to be passed up - they are always perfectly crisp and the truffle is sooo good. My favorite pasta dishes include the lobster ravioli, fettucine romano, cacio e pepe bucatini, and pistachio pesto spaghetti. Of the entrees, I've only tried the salmon piccata. I usually don't order fish for myself, but I thought it was tasty! I'm a carbs girl though, so I find myself craving the pasta!Atmosphere:They have a great patio with heaters, but the interior is my favorite! I love the dark wood everywhere and the stained glass ceilings. No other restaurant I've been to in Newport has that same vibe and I absolutely love it. It feels cozy and romantic. On nights that they have special events, it's always a fun time! They usually have a DJ and it's a good crowd of people!Service:The wait staff are excellent - very attentive and knowledgeable! They are all very personable and make your experience even better!“

“From the moment I walked in to the door to the minute I left it was hands down one of the best meals I’ve had! Our waiter Fernando was so friendly and kind and attentive and not the fake friendly. He went above and beyond in all aspects and was so knowledgeable and took our likes and dislikes into account. Our bartender unfortunately I could not remember her name but she had long brown hair and medium height but her drinks were so good! Then Chef O I believe was his name was also incredibly kind and his food was unbelievable. Authentic Italian sauces and pasta and the seafood was perfect! My calamari wasn’t chewy! I can not recommend this place enough! If you want the great knowledgeable customer service, excellent AUTHENTIC Italian food this place has it all! I will be coming back for much more !!!!!“

“My husband and I love trying out new restaurants. We especially enjoy trying out the meals of private chefs around Los Angeles. We are quite picky and fair when it comes to evaluating food. For Valentine's Day, we took a risk and decided to try out Bello for the first time. And we couldn't be happier. It was extraordinary. Now, I will share with you the things we tried. Before ordering, we were served 6 pieces of sourdough bread with amazing olive oil. Then for Antipasti, we ordered the Polpo. Fried Octopus. The portion size was larger than usual, almost too filling for 2 person. We ordered Tagliolini Al Tartufo and Costolette Agnello. The Tagliolini was enchanting. It got better with every bite. The truffle mushrooms on top added an amazing flavor. The Costolette Agnello was something else. Served with eggplant and a lightly sweet sauce on top. We normally don't like the smell of lamb, but the lamb chops were not smelly at all and were incredibly tender. Imagine the most beautiful lamb chop you can eat. For dessert, we chose tiramisu and got the panna cotta to go. The tiramisu was the perfect ending to the meal. It was simply amazing. We will definitely be coming back to this place regularly. Chef Sandro Nardone of Bello excites us incredibly! We are gonna closely follow him.“

Bello Chef's Table Fine Dining
1200 Bison Ave, Newport Beach

“This review is for HH only:We came on a weekday, restaurant was quite empty for their happy hour (4:30-6:30). We sat at the bar and got serviced immediately. The ambiance was alive with upbeat music but it did feel very dark and empty. It's also in the middle of a parking lot, so if you are looking for pleasant outdoor seating, this may not be it. The HH prices are very reasonable ($13-$18/appetizer), but I had higher expectations of the food (based on how many of my friends rave about their tasting menus). The octopus was way too dry and chewy, tasting bland. Burrata was nice and fresh but the caramelizes strawberries were so sour that it overpowered the whole dish. Pork belly was probably my favorite but the side was so deeply fried that made it very difficult to cut or chew. I would not be back for the HH food. Drink was great! I also expected more from the server. He was so busy talking to another customer (non stop) that I constantly had to flag him for attention (water refill, ordering more food). This place is trying to play in the fine dining space and I'd expect the service to be a lot more attentive than what they presented. When they did provide the service, everyone was super friendly and nice, which is why I don't want to give it 3 stars. I am not sure if I'd be back (maybe only for the full tasting, but definitely not HH)“

“What a quaint and authentic Italian restaurant on Balboa Island! Greeted by the owner who is clearly passionate about serving up, In a word... YUM! Most delicious, perfectly cooked pasta with craveable homemade sauce, (owner suggested). My friend had the veal with onions mashed potatoes, carrots, and green vegetables. Beautiful presentation, delicious food! Trattoria looks and feels like you're actually in a small restaurant in Italy. It's an authentic experience with beyond five-star food! We loved it! Let's all support small businesses like Trattoria one eatery that truly deserves our business!“

Please go here and ask for the lasagna lunch special. I ate inside and the atmosphere was so relaxing and peaceful.“
