At Bella Trattoria, the housemade pasta could feed a bear fresh out of hibernation. The Italian restaurant in the Richmond is a reliable bet for dinner that won’t leave you hungry—or $100 lighter. Decadent carbonara and amatriciana with thick chunks of guanciale are on hand. There’s free bread. And the dimly lit atmosphere will make you want to pile all your friends into the black booths and keep the wine coming. If you’re looking for a midday meal or want to catch a game without defaulting to the illegal stream you found on Reddit, their more casual spot next door, Osteria Bella, has the same menu, TVs, a full bar, and is open for lunch.
