Bella Cucina is a family-friendly authentic Italian restaurant that has plenty of big bold flavors and lots of down-home hospitality to spare. Located along Southport Supply Rd and close to a number of local hotels and motels, Bella Cucina is a relaxing spot to unwind after a long trip to the coast with a big and freshly prepared Italian meal.
The menu is divvied up into appetizers, soups and salads, pasta dishes, meat dishes, chicken dishes, seafood dishes, hand tossed NY style pizzas, and “Cravings- “ or smaller portions of some of Bella Cucina’s most popular entrees. The pizzas are crowd pleasers, and come in medium 14” and 18” sizes with a wealth of toppings, but diners who want a full Italian meal will find plenty to love among the dozens of entrees. Coastal food lovers will want to peruse the seafood menu, which has local and Italian classics like crab cakes, shrimp scampi, and linguini with clam sauce, while true Italian aficionados will want to order one of the specialty pastas, like the Tortellini Bolognese, cheese ravioli, Spaghetti Carbonara, or the homemade lasagna. With so much filling fare to choose from, frequent Southport visitors will want to return to Bella Cucina again and again to explore all the worldly options.
