Very nice place. Food is good. High prices and not big portions.
Absolutely loved this Resturant. The pasta were fantastic. The service was top notch. And the ambiance was exactly what I needed for my business meeting.
Our server, Spencer, was excellent. Excellent knowledge of menu, drinks, etc. Good conversation, was very patient with me as I was waiting for my daughter to arrive.
Went with a friend before a concert. Great experience with the staff.
Excellent food, and great service. It was extremely busy as we were in GR to see a concert, but we were in and out very quickly, but did not feel rushed.
Overall the experience was great. I would have enjoyed it more if there wasn’t a loud obnoxious girl at the table next to me. Food was great. Many options. Service was standard. Nothing special.
Great food. Always something new and interesting.
It was ok but if you want I wasn't happy with the dinner selections. NO sandwiches and only 1 soup option.
Great food with a constantly changing menu of daily specials with some unique entrees.
Our first time. Food was plenty and fabulous. Service was great. We certainly will be back. We are from 30 miles away and well worth the drive. Spencer was a great server.
Nice meal and service was very good. The restaurant was packed and the noise level was almost beyond hearing table conversations. Ambience could be better on a less crowded night
We met a group of friends before a play at the Civic. Server was accommodating with our timeline and we had plenty of time to enjoy the meal.
Having spent the majority of my life in big cities, I have high standards for cuisine. Bistro is one of the best restaurants in the area. Such high quality food and great service!
The food and environment was great! Service was outstanding! Very accommodating to food allergies!
The food and service was great. Nice atmosphere.
We were running late but they were very kind to hold our reservation. Thank you!
My wife and I went there for our 6th year anniversary and we absolutely loved it. The music that was playing went beautifully with the occasion. I had requested a bottle of Chardonnay and there it was awaiting at our table. Our waitress, Lynelle, was very understanding and helpful explaining the menu to us. We even got a dessert on the house to conclude the evening. We will DEFINITELY be coming back.
We, my friend and I, had a lovely evening at Bistro Bella Vita. The food was delicious, I loved the music, and our server, Hallie ? was great. She was warm and friendly, and I appreciated that she asked the cook for the recipe of a dish I particularly liked. And I appreciated that the kitchen was willing to share it with me!
Wonderful imaginative food and great service. Live jazz was an added bonus!
In town for a girls’ weekend. Food was fantastic and service was top notch! Loved the atmosphere too!
Bella Vita was fantastic! Food was outstanding and servers and sommeliers were friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. We went for a birthday and all the staff wished my sister a happy birthday, they had placed a nice card on the table for her and even gave her a free dessert! Would definitely go back and highly recommend for a nice evening out!
It was our first time at Bella Vita . Our server Travis was friendly and helpful and the food was great!! We will return!!
The water boy was the highlight of our experience, he was the only person who did his job well! We ended up at a bar table as my request for a booth per our Open Table reservation resulted in a booth that didn't begin to fit 4 adults. Our server, a bartender, was less than attentive, he was way more interested in the girls at the bar than serving us. Food was average, pork chop was dry, focaccia bread was stale (you have to pay for a bread course!), Caesar salad was chewy, saffron risotto was very spicy and the shrimp was not fresh. The restaurant has nice decor, but we won't be back.
Love this venue. Have not been here for about 10 years. The warm salad was delicious, however, I think the the dinners are a little overpriced. I would put sandwiches on the evening menu. That would give more price options.
The food was amazing as always. We really enjoy coming here for our Valentine’s Day date every year and it’s something she always looks forward to. This year though the service just felt so-so and it bothered us a little. I ordered the Whistlepig 10 year neat and the bottle was pretty much gone based on how much came in the glass. I had to nurse it pretty heavily to make it most of the way through the meal, which someone came by and bussed what little I had left when my back was turned. The server said it was discounted, but it only went from $22 to $16 for the pour for maybe $4 worth of alcohol (it barely covered the bottom of the glass). After spending what we did, I’d have expected the service to be better. In the end I hope next year turns out differently if we return.
Convenient dining to venues in the area, great food and very nice atmosphere. Very quick and pleasant staff.
They were nice enough to prepare a meal that was on the menu many years ago. Pasta with various meats - delicious. The others truly enjoyed their meals as well. The cocktails were good - not measured. The Tiramisu was delicious. Got a second piece to take home. No valet parking - there is a garage next door.
The food was very good but a little pricy for what it was. (simple pasta dish) The service was good. It was a little loud and open air, but I believe some people like that. Drinks were good.
Another delicious meal. I do enjoy the recent menu changes and the rotating beer menu.
We received great service. The cheese plate was outstanding to start things and our meals were very good. I had two mixed drinks, each made perfectly. My wife enjoyed a Pino. Your restaurant is especially good for special events because of the varied and interesting menu, as well as the atmosphere. Our waiter was always there when we needed him and had a good working knowledge of the menu items. The pacing of the meal from small plates through to desert was good, and the waiter helped it along by simply asking if we were ready for the next step. We will be back again.
My boyfriend and I came here for Valentine’s Day and were not disappointed!
As a veteran of the hospitality industry for over a decade, I have extraordinarily high expectations of service. Travis, met and exceeded them, with the help of the lovely Candace. Service was exceptionally prompt and attentive. The food was sublime, as always. The only constructive criticism I could provide would be not to dim the lights so much. It was distracting to have the level of light change multiple times.
The food was very good. We have always had a good experience at Bistro Bella Vita
We loved this restaurant! After a long Valentines get-away, this was our last dinner in downtown. It was definitely worth it and is one of our new favorites!
Enjoyed Saffron Risotto and Whole Roasted Branzino
Great food and wonderful service for Valentines dinner
Once again, BBV did not disappoint. Had the best filet I've ever put in my mouth, with risotto and bearnaise sauce. OMG!! Fabulous dining.
Best dining experience we’ve had in a very long time (including fine dining in Chicago and New York).
Dinner was delicious! The food was amazing. Starting with the calamari and ending with the steak it was all worth the price.
