A traditional Italian restaurant, Bella Trattoria is warmly lit and decorated in the colors of Tuscany: pale-green walls, dark wood and marble-top tables. With a prime location right on Main Street in Manayunk, the trattoria works well for a casual lunch or an upscale dinner. The long list of pasta options, supplemented by specials, includes penne with chicken tips, mixed vegetables, and marsala wine sauce; tortellini with prosciutto, peas, shiitake mushrooms and a basil cream sauce; or the Lasagna Della Nonna, a big square of beef lasagna laced with hard-boiled egg. A large selection of stromboli, calzones and tomato pies rounds out the hearty menu.
