Italian Food in Newport Beach: Pasta
No variety of dishes is more important to Italian cuisine than pasta, and Bello ensures it lives up to the hype. Each day the talented kitchen team makes every pasta on the menu from scratch. Whether you order the Amatriciana made with bigoli pasta or the Norcia crafted with fresh Rigatoncini, be assured your pasta is of the highest standard.
Pizza: Born in Italy
We can’t forget one of Italy’s trademark dishes: pizza. Here at Bello, the pizza is Neapolitan and fired in our brick oven. Only the freshest ingredients will do, evidenced by our classic Margherita pizza, flavorful tomato sauce, DiStefano mozzarella, or other toppings. A slightly crispy crust and soft internal crust (perfect for folding) await you when you join us.
Other Italian Specialties
We don’t stop at the classics; check our menu frequently to see the latest creations from our team. One of the newest is the Agnello Alla Griglia, Grilled Lamb with artichoke, tomato, and rosemary salsa verde. Or, take a look at the Acqua Pazza, Branzino with fish stock, baby heirloom tomatoes, chopped parsley, and lemon.
Our beverage selection is also one thing that helps us stand out from the pack—the cocktail menu is by Lorenzo Ricchi, a native of Florence and head of our bar program. The bar at Bello is home to famous Italian cocktails such as the Negroni and Aperol Spritz. We even make our limoncello in-house using Ricchi’s secret family recipe. Make sure you don’t miss it!
