Located in an Erie landmark eatery, la bella entices appetites with an extensive menu of homemade dishes served in a casual setting. Wanting to look perfect for its big dinner plate, the curly-leaf spinach takes a quick dip into the deep fryer ($6), while the sweet italian sausage prefers a long, hot bath in a sweet-and-sour poached-fig-and-date sauce ($8). Patrons looking for traditional Italian specialties find the ragu bolognese ($15) leading a roster of palate-pleasing pastas, as the lobster mac 'n' cheese ($25) and honey-jalapeño ahi tuna ($18) flaunt their flavors elsewhere on the menu. A nearby plant hatchery supplies the key component for vegetarian classics such as the eggplant parmesan ($18) and the eggplant veracruz ($17). Gluten-free guidelines help diners discern diet-friendly dishes such as the bittersweet chocolate-apricot cake ($8).

La bella prepares the majority of its dishes in-house, having already experimented with cooking in-car, in-bus, and in–living color. Only its pasta and artisan breads are imported, the latter being baked exclusively for la bella as part of a vocational-training program at the Saint Martin Center. Acknowledging that taste preferences, like weather forecasts and belly-button colors, can change frequently, la bella’s chef updates half of the menu every three months. la bella is open 5 p.m.–10 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.


Ninety percent of Urbanspooners like la bella:

  • I highly recommend the fried spinach appetizer - it's surprisingly amazing and melts in your mouth (it's fried, but not breaded, and served with sea salt and lemon). I hope this gem stays open in Erie for a long time! – Leslie
  • Wait people and owner were friendly and attentive and listened to our order. Everything was plated beautifully. – peghauser
