A day’s drive is the farthest that Cha Bella chef-owner Michael Lacy will go to stock the kitchen for his farm-to-table American menu. The place has an intimate, traditional feel, with a distinctive bar at the entrance, a cozy dining room, and a more expansive space outside. The dishes are incredibly fresh and tilt Italian, such as baked spaghetti squash and meatballs or Gouda-and-duck ravioli. Other favorites, such as rack of lamb and beef carpaccio, are equally tempting. The staff is personable and enthusiastic, and the service is some of the best in Savannah.
