Great food! I’ll be back
Quite possibly the best Italian we’ve ever had in the North End…from the bread and oil, antipasto, chicken and eggplant/veal, chicken ziti broccoli, chicken piccata— all top notch! So reasonable too — cannot wait to return! Still full!
Great place in the North End with a menu offering traditional Italian dishes. It appeared to be a family owned and operated restaurant. Anthony, the owner was very attentive to our needs and the food was delicious.
The food was amazing, we have been to a lot of places in the north end and so far this has been our favorite even our kids agreed. We will be back, this is our new go to restaurant in the north end.
Had the best dinner, the staff is absolutely wonderful and the food is delicious!
Amazing food, great table…Thank you Tony for the unforgettable experience
I was a bit apprehensive when we arrived and there were no other diners in the restaurant but all fears were erased the minute we started to eat! The food was exceptional! Not the heavily sauced drowning in cheese fare you can see sometimes in the North End. The flavor in every dish came through - from the manicotti to the chicken saltimboca - it all tasted great. Portion sizes were perfect (I hate when you are served a disgustingly large amount to hide that there is no taste - not the case here!). Attentive service without feeling rushed. We will be sure to return!
I selected the restaurant as the first dinner for our anniversary trip to the Boston area. The staff was absolutely incredible at this smaller gem within the North End Little Italy district. They were not only friendly and attentive, they were great ambassadors of Boston, giving my wife and I great advice about the city and all it had to offer.
I can’t say enough about the food, from the antipasto salad to the pasta fagioli, to the breads and entrees. It was evident that everything was made with the care and that only comes from an effort of love in a dynamic not focused on volume.
I don’t take anything away from the other Italian establishments in the North End, but as far as I’m concerned Bella Vista represents the best in the neighborhood.
Amazing food, attentive staff, great ambiance. Highly recommend!
Outstanding service and food. Never disappointed when we go here. Tony makes the experience that much better and he is extremely knowledgeable history and very entertaining.
The service was great. The tortellini in a cream sauce was ok. The scallop and shrimp Fra Diablo was just the right amount of spice. We only got 3 shrimp so would have liked more. The bread was fantastic. Overall, nice Italian restaurant.
The Chicken Verdicchio was wonderful and a very generous plateful, as well as the Tortellini Bolognese. Mama Lucia and her daughter Lucia were delightful. Their staff are friendly and attentive.
Excellent food, but the service was a bit lack-luster.
I have been to Bella Vista twice and they are like a family. Even the owners only met you once .. it’s delicious and you can tell they make their own sauce. I absolutely recommend. The only thing I will say is that it was very hot in the restaurant even with the door closed. I absolutely recommend
Awesome food, great service. Good times!!! Highly recommended!
Everything was perfect!
Superb. Simply superb.
Loved it!! The staff were amazing and so nice and the service was fast.
Amazing food and Service. Prices very reasonable.
Had a real Italian vibe... was quiet, the music set the romantic mood. The food was amazing; the lady who got us bread though wasn’t friendly. But overall it was a really good place to eat
The service was excellent, food was delicious (and big portions), and the place was beautiful. Start to finish great meal. Thank you!
Repeat: the service was EXCELLENT.
Great food... Great service... nice atmosphere. A top 3 favorite in the North End
We enjoyed an amazing dinner. The service was quick and our food was hot. I’ll be back!
I love Bella Vista! They have the best pasta and they always have room. It is a hidden gem!
Food was amazing!! And the staff was sweet and friendly!
Nicest people best foods
The staff was sooo sweet they made this meal memorable!! Great size portion for the prices.
The food was beyond delicious! Plenty of food for 2-3 meals! I had the cacciatore and it was the best I ever had!
4 of us had an awesome meal. The calamari appetizer was very large and delicious. Service was fantastic. We will definitely return.
The food was very good and very reasonably priced. Service was impeccable and we
received personal service from the owners of the restaurant. It was a wonderful evening
Good food good service lovely ambiance
Delicious food and excellent service. We happened to show up ~30 mins before our reservation time, and were immediately invited inside and seated anyway
So many choice in Boston's North End! We had a really good dinner and the staff was very friendly. My daughter really enjoyed her linguini with clams and the prices were extremely reasonable.
The place was perfect. It was quiet, the staff was super friendly to my children. The food was amazing. Everyone from my children to my wife were super happy with the choice of dinner.
We love Bellavista! It’s a must every time we visit the north end and we won’t go anywhere else. The owners are fabulous and the food is delicious. Once you try Bella Vista, you won’t go anywhere else.
I would give them all 6’s if I could. Wonderful!
Beautiful small old North End Italian restaurant. Food was outstanding. They are great at improvising, I asked the Chef to make something not even on the menu . . .he obliged and it was wonderful! Would recommend to all to try!

What a neighbor gem in the North End. Food was good, only serve beer and wine here but we were ok with that (wine pours were very generous). Wine menu was limited but I enjoyed my selection, but if you are fussy about your wine this might not be the place for you. Service was very attentive. Just a cute little North End restaurant with very reasonable Boston and North End prices. We will be back
