If you have ever gone, then you would have likely met the father son duo known as “the Sals.” With dad Slavatore Granata in the kitchen making his delicious recipes popping out once in a while to say hello, and Sal, Jr. making sure everyone is happy and having a good time, you will want to return.

The menu is described on their website as “a blend an old world with the warmth of the Mediterranean sun,” here at TAP, we just call it “great Italian food.” With something on the menu for everyone, Bella has the freshest seafood, authentic veal dishes, homemade pastas, and exquisite meat dishes that will not disappoint.  

Currently, they are offering 10% off orders during the pandemic and 20% off gift receipts to be used after the COVID-19 is over. In keeping with social distancing during this pandemic, all you have to do is call in, provide them with the time you will arrive, and they will bring the food right out to your car.

If you can afford to, ordering take-out food from the places you would have eaten at had COVID-19 not occurred, could financially save the restaurant industry in our towns along with their employees. Can you imagine Orange and East Orange without Bella?
