La Bella in Norfolk for pizza

bimmertimmer | Jul 15, 201105:23 PM    

We ate at La Bella on 22nd St. in Norfolk (not Bella Pizza on Colley) today specifically for Pizza. It was really done well. Crispy crust obviously baked at high heat. Tried two separate pies. Fresh topping in the correct mix and and quanity. Both excellent. Could clearly taste the tomatoes rather than too much salt in the sauce. Only thing I could ask for is the smell of wood smoke but alas, because of the proximity to the RR tracks, no brick oven is allowed. Lots of other tempting Italian fare on the menu, but we went specifially for the pizza. I will be back soon. Well done La Bella.
