I herd it was a good place to eat. No one has told me any thing bad about it. So I was wondering what others think about it?

I've been wanting to try this place for a long time now. I love Melini's in Ironton but I think their prices are getting really high as well. Their food is amazing though. I'm definitely going to have to eat at Bella Fonte and see how it measures up.

Hmmm
Really! How can anyone say Melinis is overpriced!? A HUGE Calzone for under 6-8 bucks! An authentic Italian dish for 10-12 bucks?! I had the lunch special last week, 2 large stuffed shells with ricotta served over angel hair for 6 bucks!!!!! WTF do you want here? Hell go get a can of Chef Boyardee!

Bella Fonte is owned by the same people that own Toro Loco and all of those Mexican Restaurants, imagine that. What does a Mexican know about Italian cooking. I would choose Melini's any day those pople are true Italians. Not Mexicans acting like Italians.

actually, the back of house staff at melini cucina are 100% mexican, saying that,i'd also like to state that it doesnt matter what your race or nation of origin is,if you can cook, you can cook, and they can definately cook. bella fonte was opened on the premise of a menu that was directly ripped off of melini cucina. they have since added a few things and put a few twists here and there, but i find that every time i have dined there, it is still a sub-standard imitation,and i leave wishing i would have just gone to melini's. save your time.
thanks

so with that reasoning only Italians can work In Italian restaurants only Mexican in
Mexican, only Hawaiian in Hawaiian, only Germans in German, only rednecks in redneck restaurants???? So all the rednecks at taco bell have to quit their jobs roflmao
