Bella Vino Wine Bar & Tapas

325 South Main Street St Charles, MO 63301 | St. Charles | 636-724-3434

Location Description:

Set in a historic home just off the cobblestone streets of old town St. Charles, Bella Vino Wine Bar & Tapas charms diners with its cozy atmosphere. The menu is an eclectic array of Spanish small plates, such as chorizo-stuffed dates, fried calamari and spicy pork and beef meatballs. Bella Vino offers several pastas and flatbreads; most notable is the duck-prosciutto flatbread; instead of sauce, the base is rich mascarpone cheese topped with cured duck, caramelized onions and Gorgonzola cheese. Bella Vino makes its desserts in house, and the gooey butter cake is its standout. The bottom of the cake has an almost savory, brown-butter nuttiness that is complemented by the creamy and caramely topping. Cozy up by the fireplace, order a bottle of wine and let the plates keep coming.
