Ristorante Bella Vita - Los Altos
Nice spotVery good Italian food with an authentic menu. Went for Mother's Day so they offered a specialized menu with not quite the variety it normally offers. If you're looking for spaghetti and meatballs and veal parmesan this isn't your spot. You'll get veal with asparagus prosciutto and mashed potatoes, lobster ravioli, lamb shank and other authentic dishes. There is a cool salad they offer that is sort of a caprese salad: tomatoes, basil, mixed greens, plus beets. A very good menu and a nice selection of wines too.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!Three of us went for a birthday celebration, and it was perfect! The waiters were charming and attentive, going out of their way to make the evening special. Fun, summery drinks, good wine, really tasty, fresh food . . . and wonderful dessert. All presented beautifully. We were not rushed, and it was very comfortable. I would definitely go back. I also hope to schedule our next office party there!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA Lovely Bit of ItalyHad a lovely table next to a fountain; food was fabulous, service good but the waiter did seem to be spread a little thin. Nice place for a date, special occasion.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMCharming and TastyWe thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Bella Vita. We were seated in the back, an area we've not noticed in the past as we have tended to sit near the front by the large windows. The back has a patio feel, with natural light and lovely art. Charming and spacious. There were other larger parties (ours was 7) dining there but we had plenty of space and were able to hold conversation across our round table easily.
The food was delicious. Sea Bass was the specialty that night and we dove in. A finish with Affogato and life was good!
Highly recommend this lovely intimate dining location.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways good food, always aAlways good food, always a great wait staff.
