Growing up just outside of Naples, Italy, the Furfaro brothers spent much of their time in their father's restaurant, becoming intimately familiar with not only the tastes, but also the techniques of Italian cuisine. They now recreate their father’s recipes at Bella Italia in Roswell, where the kitchen crew eschews frozen ingredients and never uses a microwave or a laser gun to heat food. Diners can sip wine as they tuck into comforting yet elegant Italian dishes, such as prosciutto-topped veal scaloppine, gnocchi dumplings in gorgonzola-cream sauce, and clams sautéed with olive oil, lemon, and white wine before being ladled over linguine. The chefs also bake stromboli, calzones, and specialty pizzas that can be made with either thin New York–style or square Sicilian-style crusts.
Brick House Pizza, Pasta & Deli resembles an old-school pizzeria. So although familiar items such as garlic knots, eggplant parmigiana, and baked ziti quiet hunger pangs, pizzas are the true stars of the menu.

A Glance Inside
The dining room shares the menu's casual, rustic charm and ties to the Big Apple. Vintage license plates and taxi signs, framed sports memorabilia, and photographs of famous bagels adorn the stucco walls. Some tables even feature checkered tablecloths, which complement the space's burgundy booths and dark brickwork.
