The Italian-borne Nardone came to the United States in 2012 and founded a brick-oven pizzeria in Dana Point, but now desires to expose local diners to a far more varied menu. The restaurant aims for Italian authenticity in every detail, from the made-daily in-house pastas and intriguing entrees to sleek and modern interior decor created by, you guessed it, an Italian designer.

Between the intentional ingredients and high-end atmosphere, Bello’s mission is to “bring a little bit of Italy to Newport Beach.” Open daily for dinner from 5 p.m. 1200 Bison Ave., Newport Beach, 949-520-7191,
