When we started planning Bello, we knew that the food would be unlike anything Americans had ever seen.  We knew that we would need a design that would be equally innovative and distinctive.  

We turned to noted architect Dino Lieghio of A-bit-a in Casalattico Italy.  Lieghio graduated from the prestigious l’Università “La Sapienza” in Rome. He has completed strikingly original projects in Italy and Ireland.

Lieghio created a design that is both clean and bold with straight lines and powerful, evocative Italian imagery (created by world famous Affreschi & Affreschi).  The lighting includes work from Italy’s top lighting company, Artemide.  Custom art was created by Ugo Art.  

 

Our goal was to bring a little bit of Italy to Newport Beach.
