La Bella

As proud members of the Ghent community, Andrea and Marti DiCarlo wanted to create a casual, laid-back space where their neighbors could relax and enjoy a traditional Italian meal. This vision led to the creation of La Bella, a slice of the Old World that has quickly become one of the area's most popular restaurants.

It's easy to see why: twice a day, the chefs here craft fresh batches of mozzarella and italian bread to pair with olives, prosciutto, and other imported ingredients. The pizzas also deserve mentioning, as each is layered with homemade cheese and topped with everything from roasted seasonal vegetables to sausage and hot peppers. The menu even features a number of vegan-friendly dishes, such as penne pasta tossed with sun-dried tomatoes, shallots, and crushed red peppers.

But the Old World influences aren't limited to the menu. Look around La Bella's dining room, and you'll notice orange-tinged walls painted to resemble the aged, mottled look of Tuscan plaster. Just outside this dining room is a scenic garden patio where guests can lounge in the fresh air while drinking wine or playing meatball bocce. Gayot was certainly right to say that "if you don’t live in Ghent, La Bella will make you want to move there just so you can claim this Italian charmer as your neighborhood trattoria."
