Our History

Welcome To Bella Sera!

A True Trattoria Serving Authentic Italian Cuisine

After 11 years in our wonderful town of Monrovia, we welcome you back to Bella Sera Trattoria!

Our mission is very simple: To make fresh, delicious Italian food in an atmosphere that is familiar, modern and comfortable. In our new restaurant, you will experience Italian Food. The menu features familiar entrees you’ve loved for years as well as our own inventive dishes created for you and your guests.

Our passion for this restaurant extends back to its founding when we ate here with our families. After many years in the food service industry as managers and cooks, we understand what it takes to create memorable dining moments for loyal customers: delicious food, dependable service. We hope you’ve raised your expectations for the new Bella Sera because we expect greatness from ourselves and we are passionate about creating exceptional memories for you.
