    First time at Belle Notte. Had heard lots of good experiences and decided to try it over the May long weekend. The food and service were excellent. However, the noise level made it difficult to hear people sitting across the table from you but it didn't take away from a great dining experience.

    Initially I wasn't sure what to expect. I've eaten at a few places in the Durham region and often left disappointed. THIS PLACE WAS THE EXCEPTION, the staff were extremely friendly, the food was worth the price, you can taste the freshness of ingredients, and I was thoroughly impressed overall. This restaurant has now been favorited and added to my saved list for future dinners.

    We all have been to Bella Note many times in the past , we keep on coming back because of the food, Michael, service, great atmosphere. The only small drawback is the level of noise.

    First time in this dining room since the renovation. It looks great! Service was very good with a real team atmosphere that comes across from the staff sharing the attention they give to customers. I planned ahead to have octopus as an appetizer this evening because it’s a favourite of mine usually and I had it in Italy last year where it tasted fabulous. Tonight’s octopus sadly seemed a little bit over cooked and while the flavours on the plate were okay- the octopus itself did not have much flavour at all. It also seemed overpriced at $22 for one tentacle. The rest of our meals were great- and the red sangria was very tasty! We’ll be back….

    Outstanding food and service is the standard here! The Scallop appetizer and Branzino for the main were both spot on. Though the restaurant was very busy service was attentive but not rushed. One of my favourite restaurants.

    A CULINARY GEM IN DURHAM!! We went to Bella Notte for the first time to celebrate my wonderful daughter’s 30th birthday. (5 Adults) The atmosphere was CHARMING and COZY. The food was OUTSTANDING, (and I’m Italian so I know good food). And the drinks and desserts were DECADENT. We were all so impressed and delighted by the service from ELLENA. She was so welcoming, efficient, knowledgeable, and friendly!! We had an AMAZING time at BELLA NOTTE and we are very excited to go back. WE HIGHLY APPRECIATE AND RECOMMEND BELLA NOTTE IN WHITBY!

    I recently treated my sister to lunch at Bella Notte, to celebrate a milestone birthday. Staff were quite pleasant at our arrival. After being seated, we received service immediately, with an offer of water and to take our drink order. Wine tastings were offered when we had difficulty making a decision on the wine. Staff were very personable and knowledgeable on wine pairings and menu options. We enjoyed the Pane E Formaggio, Shrimp Limoncello, Caesar Salad and the Pear & Prosciutto Pizza. Everything was delicious. I enjoyed a Cappuccino after lunch, and that was very good as well. We were asked if we wanted dessert, but we declined. To be honest, I thought that the Server would have brought out a complimentary dessert for my sister (it was also my birthday a few days before). With that said, complimentary chocolates (2) from a local Chocolatier was a nice touch. Many thanks for a lovely lunch.

    This was our first time visiting. The staff were cheerful, and we didn’t have to wait long for our food. The lasagna was tasty, but would have been even nicer if it was hotter. My guest was celebrating her birthday, and was certainly made to feel valued, with the little chocolates from the restaurant staff, and the candle on her dessert.

    One of our favourite places to eat in Whitby. Our waiter was outstanding and made sure that we had time to enjoy each course before rushing us on to the next one. Each course was prepared to our expectations. Even the owner, Michael, spoke to us on our way out of the restaurant to make sure that everything was good.

    This was our first time at Bella Notte but it won’t be our last. We made a reservation and were seated promptly. Staff were attentive to us when needed but also weren’t intrusive in conversation. The food was superb. I had the veal Marsala and it was delightful tender, the sauce was flavourful. My husband enjoyed his veal sorrento very much also. The portions were just right as they left you feeling full but not stuffed so after a little while I was able to enjoy the crème brûlée. An overall delightful experience!

Gave just the right time between apps and dinner and we even ordered dessert that was delicious! Miranda was attentive, well versed on the menu and made excellent suggestions for the whole meal. All of the food was delicious!

    From the moment we arrived we were treated so warmly that it felt like family. Our waitress was super sweet and helpful. We were a party of four women and she ensured we were happy with food, drink and timing of everything. This is our chosen favorite place for girls night out to catch up and unwind. Lasagna is always a big hit. The sauce is perfect with dipping the bread too. Yummmy. Friend ordered the gluten free pasta she’d be craving for days so she was content. I’m not saying the other two ladies licked their plates clean but whatever they ate must’ve been a hit!! Big night out so I also enjoyed a party drink. Sunrise something …?? … not sure what it was called but the pineapple juice in it was just what I needed and it was pretty. Chocolate gelato for dessert was the perfect touch. Two scoops too. Nice! See you in a couple months.

    Great evening at Belle Notte! Food and service was superb, I especially liked the fact that this restaurant goes out of its way for people who require Gluten Free options. There was alot of Gluten Free options unlike some restaurants where there might be limitations or a lack of variety for people who need to avoid gluten. Mario was out server and he was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and was very friendly & attentive. The entire staff was great, from the hostess to the food runners etc. It was a fabulous experience and we will definitely be comming back again! Thanks for a great evening Belle Notte!
