La Bella is a local neighborhood tradition that has served the Oak Park community since 1990. Located in an intimate 1891 storefront in the historic Pleasant District of Oak Park, La Bella offers traditional southern Italian comfort food, fresh fish, veggie specialties, steaks, chops and veal, a wonderful selection of wines and beers, homemade desserts, and handmade old fashioned cocktails, "muddled where possible." Our warm, experienced staff and the inviting atmosphere of the space will assure you the relaxing break that you are seeking from the busy lives that we all lead. You are most welcome to join us!
Start out with a sweet "Piacenza Punch" or "1939 Manhattan" cocktail. Then, try the grilled calamari, fried zucchini or stuffed artichoke, or sample our appetizer-sized hand-tossed pizzas. Next, don’t miss the Stacked Eggplant salad or perhaps share the Insalata di Mare for a wonderful low-carb seafood start. For your entrée? Choose from our huge selection of traditional pasta dishes, including stuffed gnocchi, ravioli, tortellacci, linguini, cavatelli, rigatoni, eight finger, fettuccine and more. We offer veal and chicken dishes, steak and choices of chops (blackened, Siciliano, oreganato). Fish? How about fresh baramundi or lake perch in our light sauces? End your experience with homemade tiramisu, New York-style cheesecake, irresistible pinot grigio cake or spumoni, as well as our selection of cordials and single malt or blended scotches and other whiskeys.
