Bella Italia Ristorante is an authentic Italian restaurant in the heart of Winter Garden just minutes south of the Stoneybrook West Village shopping center. Family owned and operated, Bella Italia takes pride in being the neighborhood spot everyone feels welcome to for Sunday dinner -- and all week long! We have something for everyone, including gluten-free pasta & pizza options. Bella Italia Ristorante opened in the Winter Garden area June 2016. Bella Italia is owned and operated by husband and wife team Leonard & Dorina Kodra. Chef Leonard starting cooking at 18 alongside his grandmother who shared with him authentic Italian recipes. These dishes, some of them over 100 years-old, are served today at Bella Italia. The original Bella Italia location is in downtown (now under different ownership) and has been an Orlando favorite for years.
