Our Vision: Italian Lifestyle at its Best: Exceptional Food, Wine and Celebration! Bella Piatti, located in downtown Birmingham was re-invented under new ownership and now approaching our fifth year anniversary. The interior of the restaurant was revitalized with the help of designer Jeff Fontana. The warm and whimsical décor is an unexpected change from the original interior. The antique chandeliers, renaissance and baroque murals, caramel colored linens and the unusual stainless steel drape create a cozy, warm and inviting environment. Venetian born Chef Francesco Apollonia created a traditional Italian menu with a contemporary presentation and flair. His take on foods and flavors from around the Italian boot have been receiving rave reviews. The menu is comprised of traditional meals such as pastas, risotto, seafood and mouthwatering steaks, veal and lamb. Also offered are a variety of hot and cold antipasti, daily specials and delectable house-made desserts. Fresh seasonal produce, exceptional quality products and artisanal ingredients make this dining experience authentic and simply Italian.
