As nighttime falls on Bonna Bella Waterfront Grille, its glowing patio heat lamps cast shimmering reflections in the tranquil waters of the marsh. Come daytime, the sun warms the expansive wooden patios and two outdoor bars that won the restaurant the title of "Best Waterfront Dining" from Savannah Magazine four years in a row. There, cheerful umbrellas shade guests as they sip colorful cocktails and watch nearby games of corn-hole.
Meanwhile, inside the restaurant, chefs fire up grills in the kitchen while executive chef Roberto Leoci examines deliveries of freshly caught seafood. The internationally renowned chef and his crew then fold local ingredients into the fresh-seafood dishes, sandwiches, and fish tacos that earned them a feature on the Food Network's Chefs vs. City in 2010.
