Bella Vista Brazilian Gourmet Pizza Ratings and Reviews
I took a party of about 10 and the restaurant seemed understaffed to accommodate us along with the other tables. There was 1 host/server and 1 cook on a Saturday afternoon. Aside from that, everything was great! Most of us did the all you can eat but some people opted out and did their own thing. Since there was only 1 cook the pizzas came out rather slowly at first but it gave us some time to think about what we wanted to try next. We sat there for over 2 hours and the staff didn't seem to mind. It's BYOB (no corkage fee) so we brought some champagne and made a brunch of it. I recommend trying it on a week night.
I went here with a Groupon for dinner. $20 for all you can eat pizza, salad, and dessert pizza for 2! It's definitely better to go later in the evening when more people are there to put in orders. You basically tell the server what you want to eat and they cook it up on a pizza and bring it to your table first. We were the only people doing AYCE at first so the service was a little slow. Once more people showed up and another server started there was a steady stream of pizza offerings. I was not a fan on the stroganoff but it's a popular slice. We probably tried about 10 slices each. Some we only ate a few bites of. All of the dessert pizzas were delicious but we were so full by the time they came by. I highly recommend this as a fun social dinner. They will only split the check 4 ways so keep that in mind if you are going with a large group. I also noticed that for a Groupon they automatically tack on the 20% tip.
The pizza was the best I had in a long time. The service was horrible! No one explained being a first time customer what the options were. We had no idea there was a family style option to enjoy the salads, variety of pizzas, and dessert, so we ordered straight from the menu.
Once our pizza was dropped off our server was not to be seen again. Refills did not happen and he had to be chased down just to get the check. Would be open to going back at a later date to give it another try but would ask for a different server and ask more questions.
All you can eat Pizza a la Brazilian style...ok without the brazilian dancers but the pizzas were awesome. You are started with caesar salad then one by one small slices of various pizzas from the regular marghegritz to the more exotic, beef stroganoff, to four cheese, to basil and pesto, to chicken and corn, to prosciutto. All thin crust, hot and very tasty. A wide array of tastes and flavors for the indulgent appetite.
A dessert pizza? Yes guava and cheese. plus others.
Highly recommended and will return.
If you ever go to Brazil, most sit down pizzerias will be like this one: you pay an amount for all you can eat, and they pass by the tables with different types of pizzas, you tell them if you want it or your want to pass. We were a group of six, most visually impaired, and they accommodate us very well.
This was a Valentine's dinner with my wife of 15 Years ! It was suggested to us by a good friend. I suggest you come hungry and order the all you can eat Pizza! We were so pleasantly surprised by the variety of pies they have and the tastes were so good that we were overwhelmed! We tried to rank our top 5 slices to no avail. When we thought we had a consensus invariably the next slice would top 2 or 3 of the slices we had before. The servers were very helpful and all served you. I / we highly recommenced this restaurant for a date or just to enjoy good pizza . We will eat there as many times as the wife will allow me to and maintain my figure lol ! BTW the meat lovers was my fav.. My Wife is still stuck between Chicken & cream corn slice and the Tuna slice ... I know sounds weird but they were 3 & 4 on my top 5 list which I still don't really believe but they were awesome! try the zucchini slice as well.
Where else are you going to find all-you-can-eat Brazilian pizza? Not sure what that means? Well, the waiters bring pizza pans around with perhaps three different flavors and you can pick any or all. And they keep coming and coming. I suspect that there are 20 different varieties, including 4 dessert pizzas! Some are very familiar, such as cheese and tomato, barbeque chicken, or pesto. Others I haven't seen anywhere else. These include slices with Brazilian cheeses or meats.
We also really like Bella Vista because it consistently has friendly and fun staff who really add color to the meal.
We enjoyed the all you can eat option for $17 on Sat night, great way to taste a lot of flavors. Really liked the margherita, four cheese, chicken and corn, and the strawberry chocolate dessert. I tried a few other flavors but these four stood out. Great place for families and groups. May have to wait for a table.
Really annoyed after holding my reservation for WEEKS--including a modification late the night before--showed up at restaurant to discover it was closed for a private World Cup watching party. Just indescribably BAD business to blow off customers with reservations without any notice!
There's so much to love about Bella Vista. It isn't often that you find a pizza buffet, but this one not only has tremendous selection but it has unusual ingredients. They even have dessert pizzas which include one with a marvelous guava jam and another chocolate and strawberries.
But the joy of this restaurant doesn't end with the food. Every time I've been there, the servers have been happy, energetic and more than willing to load your plate with new tastes.
Do yourself a favor, try this. Just make sure you go during the hours when they serve the all you can eat fare.
This restaurant is a hidden gem. The pizza is thin and packed with flavor. I love their variety, even the simple pizzas that are vegetarian are yummy, so vegetarians can also enjoy! I loved the waiters, they were very friendly and it's good to feel welcomed. Eventhough the all you can eat was busy, the waiters were never rude or seem rushed to get you out of the restaurant. They were the best waiters ever! I would definitely come back here with friends.
I think the only other time I went here was for brunch on a Saturday and the waitress was a bit slow on serving us.
Combining the all-you-can-eat rodizio style of Brazilian dining and pizza, Bella Vista is a great place to get your pizza fix with a twist. If you get the all-you-can-eat option, you'll get plenty of different types of pizza brought around by hard working servers and you can try any or all that appeal to you. Many have Brazilian flavors and there are also sweet dessert pizzas once you've had your fill of the savory ones. Go hungry and you'll be stuffed when you leave.
This place offers Brazilian styles all you can eat pizzas. What a great concepts. They offer a good variety of pizzas. My favorite is the creamy chicken with corn. Slices are not very big so you can have room to sample their wide selection of pizzas. Service was great. Staff was very nice, patient, and friendly. I highly recommend this place especially if you are a foodie.
Where else, besides your Mother's, are you going to find people so happy to give you just a little more food?
The concept is that you sit down and enjoy some Caesar salad and perhaps 30 kinds of pizza, all brought to to your table to inspect and devour. Pizza is thin crust, but being Brazilian, some of the toppings you have probably never seen on a pizza before. In fact, you may never have seen then anywhere before. Dry Brazilian beef, Brazilian sausage or cheese, chocolate or guava.
You need to try Bella Vista.
I usually don't like pizza but this place was delicious. They don't go heavy on the sauce or cheese. They also slice their slices smaller so you can enjoy more different types for the all you can eat. Also, you can make requests for the all you can eat, all their pizza offerings are fair game. I was really sad that they ran out of the pichana though =(((
The wait staff was accommodating, but they were unorganized for a large party of 12. Said they were short staffed, and it was a bit confusing. There was no beer or wine, but you could BYOB. The pizzas were different - not sure what made them Brazilian - may be the cheese. It is a unique experience, and worth at least one try. Although we did not try it, they have an "all you can eat" option.
