Modern Italian with Bella Cucina

by | Aug 27, 2020 | Dining, Arts & Entertainment

For years Bella Cucina has brought fine Italian dining to the Santa Clarita Valley. This restaurant has it all: affordability, family friendly atmosphere, and fantastic eats. What sets them aside from other Italian restaurants is that they serve modern Italian recipes. What does this mean? Unlike other food establishments who just serve “great grandmother’s” spaghetti recipe Chef Toumadi brings back new recipes from his visits to Italy every six months. Some recipes have become crowd favorites like the Italian Sangria. This cocktail is made with five liquors, blended with fresh chopped fruit, wine, cloves, cinnamon. Then the mix sits for hours allowing the juice to infuse in the fruits. Another cocktail that is a must try is the Versace Martini, a cocktail made with a special mix of liquors to give it a rainbow look.
Chef Taumodi and Owner Jay Hamzei work together each week to bring out new specials. Recently, they incorporated a Arrabiatta sauce in some of the dishes. This sauce has hints of garlic, tomatoes and dried red chili peppers. The interesting thing about it is that it is a spicy sauce but does not burn your mouth just gives your whole body a sort of warm fuzzy feeling. Each dish is carefully prepared and made with the customer in mind. As Taumodi put it, “Cooking with love is art.” However, he does create pieces that cater to a customers’ taste along with food sensitivities. Nearly everything on the menu can be made vegetarian or gluten free. Whatever the dish or recipe you are sure to leave very satisfied.
For a touch of modern with Italian and Morrocon influence, order today at Bella Cucina where every customer is treated like family; located at 27911 Seco Canyon Rd, Santa Clarita, CA 91350 or call today to make reservations: 661-263-1414.
