Bella California is all about the view. Overlooking the Sea of Cortez and the famous El Arco rock formation, this beachside restaurant, which specializes in the fusion of Californian and Italian cuisine, makes it easy to wake up and smell the coffee. Fresh roasted veggies, tangy hot pizzas and fresh-from-the-sea ceviche will whet your palate in this stunning beachfront bistro. Bustling activity and enticing aromas from the wood-burning pizza oven tempt senses while subtle breezes and stunning sunsets only add to a most memorable Italian meal. It is also a wonderful place to end your day amidst the soothing ambiance and gentle sounds of the crashing surf nearby.
Behind the savory aromas at our Cabo San Lucas restaurant is Giulio Lupori, the Executive Chef at Bella California. His passion for cooking began in Ponte Buggianese, a small town in Tuscany, where at a young age he was intrigued by the fire and fancy knife work he saw at his grandparent’s home. From there, his passion for cooking emerged as he watched his grandmother prepare meals when he was no taller than the table and as he began experimenting with different ingredients while he cooked meals for himself and friends. Inspired by their reviews, he moved on to work under Chef Fulvio in Sardinia, where he learned his way around the kitchen. His obvious talent earned him work in both Italy and Mexico, where he has done everything from cooking to opening restaurants. In 2016, Chef Lupori became part of The Villa Group team, pouring his soul into each dish he prepares.
The sweeping ocean views, subtle sound of the waves as they roll onto shore, and the inspiring sunsets that grace the horizon all contribute to the astounding ambiance at Bella California. Guests can revel in the elegance of the Cabo San Lucas restaurant, which is honored by the open air seating, calming decor, inviting aromas and friendly service. Whether delighting in the fresh morning breeze, lingering in the afternoon shade, or dining in the romantic ambiance of Bella California’s dinner service, you are sure to enjoy the atmosphere almost as much as the delicious culinary creations that come from the kitchen.
