Bella Cucina is a family-owned Tuscan style restaurant featuring everything from fine Italian dining to hand-tossed pizza. We travel to Italy to look for new ideas and presentations and, different ways to enhance the “old” recipes that have been in the family for generations. With the “Specials“ that we prepare, foremost is what is seasonal and available fresh; combine that with our knack for creativity with skillful presentation and you get a wonderful selection to choose from.
In addition to our traditional pasta meat entrees we serve seafood entrees using fresh-caught fish from local purveyors. Many visitors to our area ask “where can we get GOOD seafood?” not realizing that right here in Southport the best seafood in Brunswick County is found at Bella Cucina.
If you’re yearning for thin-crust pizza then Bella is the place to be. Hand-tossed dough covered with delicious cheese, special sauces, and fresh toppings are what make these NY-style pies a must. A hearty made-to-order Calzone or Stromboli is also the perfect choice for those who’d like to try something unique and you’d be missing out if you didn’t sample what the locals call “best chicken wings in town”.
To complement our menu is an extensive Wine List with many reasonably priced Italian wines. May we suggest you can begin with one our exciting special martinis and complete the meal with a cappuccino and Sambuca? For a great dining experience in a comfortable, relaxing environment, presented by a talented and friendly wait-staff…you can’t beat Bella Cucina.
