Bella Trio:

Reopening June 8 with the following precautions:

  • In order to keep you and our staff safe, we will be conducting contactless checkout and payment for your visit. Until further notice, we will not be accepting cash or check payments and prior to scheduling we will require a credit card securely stored on file to use for payment of services, products, and gratuity. If you do not wish to include gratuity on your credit card transaction, we suggest using Venmo.
  • The focus of our first four weeks will be accommodating as many guests as possible in a safe manner. Therefore, we will not offer one hour facial, one hour pedicure, or shampoo & style services. In addition, our stylists will temporarily complete your cut or color service without a blow-dry. Please discuss options for dry cutting or wet styling with your stylist. As a thank-you for understanding, color and highlight services will receive a complimentary deep conditioning treatment.
  • All guests and staff will be required to wear a face covering at all times. We ask that you bring your own covering. We will have disposable masks available if you are unable to provide your own.

  • We feel it best to move our existing tables outside onto the patio to provide additional outdoor seating options. We plan on operating in this capacity through the remainder of the summer, weather permitting. 
  • We are waiting on the delivery of a pager system which will allow guests to adhere to social distancing guidelines while waiting for their meals. We plan to expand hours as demand picks up. 
  • We still ask that you place your orders online. We will no longer require pre-orders but encourage it. Placards will be placed outside the restaurant to help guide in the ordering process. 
  • We plan to at some point give customers the ability order on site.

Government guidelines and common sense have guided the efforts we are taking to ensure the health and safety of our employees and guests:

  • We strongly encourage you to view our menu on your phone, we have QR codes available in the restaurant to make it easier to pull up the menu.
  • We understand some will still prefer a hard copy menu, so we also have single-use paper menus available.
  • Tables will not be pre-set with drink menus or condiments, these will be cleaned and brought to the table as needed and sanitized after each use.
  • We are closing half the tables in the restaurant to ensure guests can dine at least six feet apart.
  • We have outside seating available, also at least six feet apart.
  • Our entire staff is receiving new health department training, called Count on Me NC certification. You can read more about it here and even take a guest pledge.
  • For now, we will require our servers to wear masks during their work shift.
  • Touchless hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the restaurant.
  • Touchless bathroom door openers have been installed (using your foot to open the door).
  • Pens, check presenters and other high-use items materials are sanitized between use.
  • Employees complete a health screening every day to help ensure no one is working with any hint of illness (screening for symptoms as well as whether they have been in contact with anyone that has these symptoms).
  • Guests will enter through the main door and exit through our side door to reduce crowding in our lobby.
  • We use a text message system to notify you if your table is ready which allows you to wait outside or even in your car. No waiting in our lobby or common areas will be allowed.
  • We are following a rigorous master cleaning schedule of the entire restaurant, including restrooms.
