More than 40 members and guests enjoyed a full menu of delicious Italian dishes with fresh ingredients served at Bella Sera at the March 25, 2015 Arcadia Chamber of Commerce Love Lunch, sponsored monthly by The Law Offices of Hart, Mieras & Morris, Inc.
Attendees also enjoyed networking with attendees from all manner of businesses and organizations at the restaurant in Old Town Monrovia at 422 S. Myrtle Avenue.
“We took over the restaurant that had been here for ten years and now we’re coming up on our one-year anniversary in April,” said Dana Borreli, owner of Bella Sera Trattoria. “We re-modeled everything, including the menu, and we are expanding next door where we are going to have a bakery, olive oil tastings, and take-out trays as well as catering.”
Borreli said the new ceiling absorbs much of the sound, making the dining are much quieter and pleasant. And the south wall is linked with beautiful red iconic images of Italy, cleverly framed with leftover wood.

Bella Sera is a fusion of modern with traditional, and a simple mission: To make fresh, delicious and true Italian food in an atmosphere that is familiar, modern and comfortable. The menu features familiar entrees you’ve loved for years as well as their own inventive dishes created for you and your guests.
The Love Lunches were created by the Arcadia Chamber for members and prospective members who love lunch and love getting out of their homes or away from their office for a chance to relax and meet some new people and network. Attendees are invited to come anytime between 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of each month at a different restaurant each time. Order what you want and pay individually. The next Love Lunch will be held at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Monrovia-Pasadena, 924 West Huntington Drive, Monrovia, CA 91016
