Bella Cocina owner, Jalil Haeri, started his career in the restaurant business more than 25 years ago. Working every job on the floor over the years, you can bet that Jalil knows what it takes to make a restaurant run well. However, working for someone else wasn’t his mission; he always wanted to own a restaurant. Jalil’s first was the Main Street Pizza and Café, a small local Italian cafe. Jalil and his wife Fatemeh welcome you to what they hope will be a memorable dining experience and friendship. The café offers an array of items that you may not find anywhere else. The menu was created by Jalil and Fatemeh using new recipes that continue to receive rave reviews from foodies in and around the Irvine area.

As the Main Street Pizza and Café menu became more and more popular with customers, Jalil and Fatemeh received increasing requests for catering, so the couple moved their restaurant to a larger space in the Irvine Food Court. Today, more than 60% of the restaurant’s business comes from catering. Their next move? Buying the neighboring bagel shop and expanding their space to allow for a breakfast, lunch and dinner menu! No matter what the economic climate, the cafe fared well. This should come as no surprise, because good food keeps people coming back again and again.

In 2012, Jalil and Fatemeh bought a restaurant in Santa Ana on MacArthur. After remodeling the space completely, the couple reopened the restaurant to offer Italian and Mexican cuisine. This interesting combination came in response to cafe customers’ requests for more variety and uniquely flavorful entrees. The most difficult part was coming up with name. Hence Bella Cocina was born! Jalil and Fatemeh searched for a chef that had a flare with Mexican cuisine. Chef Rum came with more than 20 years of experience in creating Mexican entrees. He developed the Mexican fare found on the Bella Cocina menu. Fatemeh is instrumental in refining the recipes, constantly working to find new flavors and selections. The menu is updated regularly with new entrees, which keeps customers coming back time and time again to experience the newest taste sensation.
