Surprised by some of the negative reviews here. I and the 7 other diners I ate with thought the food was extremely good. I had the tomato-avocado salad (excellent!) and the cinnamon duck. I thought the duck was tender and delicious and even my friend who doesn't like duck enjoyed the bite of mine she tried. The stuffed chicken (cannot remember the name) was also excellent and if I returned I would order that. Someone else ordered the bass, which I thought was only so-so. The espresso sirloin, while interesting to try, ultimately wasn't as good as the filet mignon. The orchiette and sausage was also a very good dish for pasta lovers. I would love to return for their brunch. While it is a bit on the pricey side, the atmosphere as well as the very friendly, attentive, and refreshingly unpretentious service made it worth it. If you want to take out-of-towners to dinner, this place is will undoubtedly impress!! (Bonus: We were a large group and were grateful that this was one fo the very few restaurants where you can actually hear your dinnermates talking. No loud music or voices and no need for shouting!)

My husband & I love the finer restaurants in the area. I have no problem paying for good food but we were very disappointed in Bella Tori. The atmosphere was wonderful but I think cooking lessons are in order. We just got back from northern Italy and had hope to savor some of our favorite dishes from there. It's a shame, I really had high hopes for an upscale restaurant in the neighborhood. I don't know if we will give it another try.

A little off the beaten track if you're not familiar with Langhorne/Bucks County, but what a great place for a special dinner. Wonderfully romantic atmosphere, a great place to relax for drinks. Food was good, the staff aimed to please. The highlight of our visit was a tour of the restored victorian mansion. We look forward to a return visit during the holiday season. Can't wait to have dinner by the fireplace.

My husband suprised me by bringing me to Bella Tori for my Birthday, What a treat! I Had the Diver Scallops which were cooked perfect, and Joel had the sea bass and loved it. We shared a lightly fried calamari for the appetizer. The manager suggested a great white wine which went perfect with the meal. Our server I forget his name, was extremely friendly and accomadating. We finished the evening with a drink in the bar and a tour of the restaurant by the manager. We will be back.

Had an anniversary dinner at this beautiful restaurant on August 12, 2006. One person was a vegetarian and the restaurant was called beforehand to ask if they could accommodate us. The entree was two wide noodles with nothing on them, one very small stuffed tomato(spinach)?, 1/2 of a small portobello mushroom burned and a small tart with no taste (store bought quiche?) for $22.00. The waiter removed his plate in 5 minutes and let him sit there with nothing to eat while I tried to eat my entree. One slice of bread is all you get regardless of how emptry you are. My entree was the roast duck, very rubbery and dredged in cinnamon so that it was unpleasant to eat. It was accompanied by three par-cooked fingerling potatoes that were still crunchy for $30.00 The bar is good but the food wasn't. We went home and had dinner instead.
