Celebrate Mom at Bistro Bella Vita!
Sunday, May 13, 2018
I have been dining at Bistro Bella Vita since it opened 22+ years ago. They have consistently been a favorite spot of mine throughout the years. Up until recently, they've also had my favorite dish (rotini/fusilli con pollo) on the menu since they opened. Although it's not technically on the menu now, the kitchen staff was more than happy to make my favorite "old school" dish on request. Thank you and keep up the great service and cuisine!
Staff was very helpful with reserving a table for 11 people. Food was excellent and the staff very attentive. Will definitely dine here again.
Never disappointed with the Bistro. This visit was a wonderful pasta and one of the best dirty martinis in town.
Tristan and his staff are excellent. Connor the bartender makes fantastic drinks and we thoroughly love sitting in bar area
When we arrived at 5:30 the daily menu was not ready. My Italian dinner was very small and overpriced. The waitress was not overly friendly. I would not recommend
My wife and I went to GR for her birthday and Bistro Bella Vita was our choice for the meal and it was the right choice. Great food ( I had the pork chop) and perfect for my wife's food allergy issues (celiac, dairy and soy free). They custom made her food just right!!! and she didn't get sick. :) They even had a Birthday card waiting for her at our table.
I love this place! Menu items like the Bistro steak, cheese plate (always has something fresh/different), and martinis are amazing! Higher end, so can be pricey, but it’s worth it! I can’t wait to go back.
New menu and it was excellent! Service was also outstanding. Best experience I have had at bistro Bella vita in sometime. We will be back
The food was great, atmosphere was excellent, and our waitress was outstanding. We'll definitely be back
An all-around great dining experience. Great menu, good service, and nice decor. Will definitely be going back.
Beautiful atmosphere. Wonderful food. Amazing waitress! We love this place.
Really good food. Special birthday dinner. Too pricey for a casual meal.
We dined there to celebrate a birthday. It was our first time at BBV. Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. She split a salad for us on two plates so it could be shared and suggested a less expensive way to order desserts. The birthday girl received a complimentary dessert. All our food and drinks were delicious! We will return!
The Pizza Rustica was one of the best pizzas I have had in a long time. The chopped salad was really good as well. The service was awesome too.
A very beautiful restaurant too bad the food is just ordinary. Even the drinks are overwrought and so complicated that in the end they taste really bad. Avoid this place even though it looks like the perfect spot for a lovely dinner.
Consistently our favorite place downtown to dine. Always quiet and comfortable, the wait staff is patient and never pushy. Portion size is spot on and the food is fresh and delicious.
Always great food, great service, great place! Never disappoints us. Highly recommend.
Excellent at reservations made in advance, excellent service, and excellent food choices and food was very good!
We went to meet up with friends we have not seen in a while. We wanted good food and moderate noise level and easy parking. We stayed for over 3 hours and our server was wonderfully patient with us.
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!
