Bella Pizzeria serves up a slice of history

EAST VINCENT — In the late 1700s ,the Brumbach (later known as Brownbach) family built the building that today houses Bella Pizzeria.

Standing the test of time, much of the interior has remained the same over the years, including the fine stonework and floors. From a general store to a gas station where barbeques were held in the back to a Red Rooster breakfast restaurant, the building has seen a lot of transition.

Celebrating more than three years in business, Bella Pizzeria is making a name for itself by serving quality foods at reasonable prices. And while the outside maintains the traditional look, inside there is a restaurant that is keeping up with the times — and appetites — of the greater East Vincent community.

A huge menu unfolds to a variety of foods, included a wide selection of handcrafted pizza options, all cooked in a brick oven. Feedback from the customers is that the pizza is great, people love the wings, and because of some poultry-infused dishes it was suggested that the restaurant start calling itself “Bella Chicken.”

The restaurant features traditional pizzeria items such as steaks, hoagies and pizza as well as some more obscure dishes, such as the Red Rooster. This sandwich is made of grilled chicken, fried onions, mushrooms, roasted red peppers and pepper jack cheese on a freshly baked roll. Farmland steak and chicken is used, complemented by fresh vegetables and other ingredients.
Homemade desserts such as cheesecake, triple chocolate cake and cannolis complement the lunch and dinner menu items, all of which can be enjoyed in a large dining area. The dining room, featuring a small game room and television, makes Bella Pizzeria a relaxing family-oriented destination.

The Mercury Muncher sampled a tasty cheesesteak with hearty beef, gooey melted American cheese, thick-cut fried onions and cool sauce. Even a small sandwich was filling enough to satisfy the Muncher for the whole day. The Muncher’s only regret was that it didn’t get a large so it could snack on the sandwich again for dinner!

Pickup, dine-in and takeout service are offered, take out beer is available, and on Mondays and Tuesdays kids can eat for $2. Senior citizen discounts and a variety of specials can be taken advantage of and are promoted on the Bella Pizzeria Facebook, where the full menu and coupons are available.
