From the website: "Sundays at our Nana’s house were special days. It began when we entered Nana’s house and the smell of the ‘gravy’ simmering on the stove would greet us at the door. Nana would fly out of the kitchen to pinch our cheeks, give us hugs, and lead us to the table full of food saying “mangia, mangia”. Sundays with Nana were days where everything seemed to stop for family and friends; everything except for pasta. Aunts, uncles and cousins would trickle into Nana’s house throughout the day to take their places at the table. The day never seemed to end as we would sit for hours sharing the food and laughter with one another. Although the day would begin and end with food, it was the time with family that really made the day special. It is our hope and passion at Bella Monica to recreate those long Sundays at Nana’s. "Since 2000, when chef/owner Corbett Monica and his wife Julie opened the doors to this neighborhood trattoria, Bella Monica has become an extension of Nana’s table. It is a place where guests become family at our tables and enjoy Nana’s recipes. Keeping true to tradition, we use only imported San Marzano tomatoes and the freshest ingredients just like Nana would. So please, enjoy our food and the company you share."

    I always enjoy Bella Monica. There are no bad choices on the menu. I was happy to see the back room open up since they are so popular. Thanks to everyone I talked with and I hope to see everyone again soon.
    I loved the Kahlua cheesecake and I get to enjoy the other half of my lasagna tomorrow.

    Surprise treat of the private room added to good company and great food added just the right touch to our long-awaited evening at Bella Monica.

    Woke up with a sore throat and fever, hate to miss this but I'm afraid I'm contagious.
