Casa Bella was established in September 2009. With the support and guidance from our family, my wife and I decided it was time for us to start our own venture.
My wife Gina and my brother-in-law Mario come from a family well versed in the restaurant business. Their father Claudio Ferrentino, and uncles Mario and Joe are co-owners of the landmark Teresa’s Restaurant in Ware MA.
That is where we found our passion to cook, and strived to learn all the facets of the family business before opening our own. Working next to three of the best, we learned the importance of quality and consistency and only using the freshest of ingredients. Applying these tools with hard work and dedication helped turn our dream into a reality.
After 6.5 years and two kids, we decided to join forces with Mario and bring our business closer to home. We are truly grateful for the friends we have made in South Windsor, and hope you join us at our new home in Hampden, Ma.
