Bella Bistro Culinary Studio


Chef Shelly has taken her most prized culinary possessions from the restaurant that was once located in Old Town Arvada and has created Bella Bistro Culinary Studio. The studio consists of a culinary prep room that has every tool you can imagine to carry out a wide variety of menus. We are equipped with all the latest kitchen equipment, a large collection of artisan pasta-making tools, and a newly added outdoor pizza kitchen that is the new home for the pizza oven from the restaurant – one of Chef Shelly’s most beloved fixtures. It’s the next best thing to Italy!


Classes that you may join are always being posted and updated. Simply contact Shelly to make your reservation. Would you like to book a private class, cooking demonstration, or dinner party to celebrate your next birthday, anniversary, or just to celebrate life? Chef Shelly can design a private event for you with a variety of tastes and flavors from regional Italian, Spanish, French, Vietnamese and Cuban cuisine. Shelly is always adding new flavors and techniques to her menus, and uses fresh, seasonal produce in her recipes.

So if you loved and miss Bella Bistro the restaurant, please come visit the Culinary Studio. It’s the same great food from the restaurant that you can now learn to make and enjoy at home!
