For what Bella is—a little neighborhood spot with simple sandwiches and a couple of slightly more ambitious options—it succeeds. The incredibly affordable menu is as eclectic as the art collection, ranging from hummus (fine) to fruit-spiked guac (tasty) to hand-formed burgers (surprisingly well-seasoned and well-executed at a juicy medium-rare). One hope is that the owner ditches the weekday counter-service/weekend table-service switcheroo; it’s not only confusing for diners, it sucks for servers’ wallets.
