Our Story

Bella Roma


 Bella Roma was established in 1991, by its present owners Chef Elio and Michelle,and Michelle's parents Jack and Irene Diamond.

Elio, who is from Sperlonga Italy,a small town near Rome came up with the name "Bella Roma" which means "Beautiful Rome". After cooking for many years professionally in restaurants from New Hampshire to The North End of Boston, Elio chose to get involved with a restaurant of his own.

 Michelle's Family has been in the restaurant business since 1979. Her father Jack, taught her the front end of the business. 

Now, along with their sons Matt and Pat, are still here to make sure customers are comfortable and feel like family, which is a very important part of the attraction at Bella Roma.

 The whole Italian experience is never more evident because Elio is a man who knows variety is the key to great dining.

When you enter the tastefully decorated, informal interior of Bella Roma, you will find the walls covered with beautiful hand painted murals of Italy and familiar faces. Its warming, cozy, and comfortable atmosphere. You will feel your taste buds being aroused by the wonderful smells of authentic Italian cuisine cooking all around you.
