Our Family

 Papa Anthony


Anthony Roncarati originally hails from Springfield Massachusetts, where he and his brother-in-law Ernie and his big brother Paul owned and operated an Italian Restaurant, Marcos, for 15 years.  After falling in love with Hilton Head Island, Anthony and his wife Deborah moved to the lowcountry and opened Bella Italia in 1993.  

Ever since then, Bella Italia had been serving up Hilton Head Island's best authentic Italian dishes and New York style pizza to residents and visitors alike!  

Stop in to Bella Italia to see Papa Anthony making your pizza and pasta to order!





Alvin and Arelis

Alvin and Arelis Espinoza are a husband and wife team who keep the kitchen and dining room humming!


Both Alvin and Arelis are long-time residents of Hilton Head Island, and have worked at Bella Italia for over ten years. 

When Alvin and Arelis aren't cooking up the Island's finest pizza and pasta, they are busy raising their three children in Bluffton (that's the mainland for you visitors!).

Of course, no family would be complete with out a mama to keep it all together, and at Bella Italia that's our Mama  Theresa!  Mama Theresa has been cooking up Hilton Head Island's favorite Italian dishes since the doors opened in 1993.

 Stop in any time to enjoy Mama's homemade Italian favorites, in our warm and family-friendly atmosphere.
