Small, hidden and easy to miss, the Bella Vista Trattoria & Wine Bar gives a good dose of flavor in its food, ensuring that diners have a pleasant evening together. The cozy atmosphere in the cafŽ and the outdoor patio seating area give Bella Vista Trattoria & Wine Bar a rather intimate, casual vibe.

The menu offers various daily specials and is also full of various Italian dishes that are popular such as the penne arrabbiate, gnocchi Bella Vista, fettuccini Bolognese, risotto and ravioli. There are also pizzas, steaks, salads and anti pasto that offer a mix of modern and contemporary Italian cuisines. The wine bar at the Bella Vista Trattoria & Wine Bar features a tasteful mix of martinis, bourbons, scotch whiskey (blended and single) as well as a small collection of beers too.

We had a lovely meal here. I had calamari and pizza, my friends had beef carpaccio and pasta - all were very delicious! The reason for four stars was that the service did take a bit long, which was surprising as the restaurant was quite empty. If you have lots of time, it would be no trouble at all, but in our case we then had to rush to make it to a show. Overall, great meal and we would definitely go back!

The atmosphere was very calm and relaxing. We had a lovely knowledgeable waiter who recomend ded his favorites and they were super delicious presentation was a 10 out of 10. We had tiramisu and they served it very unique. We would definitely return, the food, the service and the place were all great!!!

Food was good as always. Service was slow, but seemed understaffed for the amount of tables occupied. Wine was excellent, and pasta was delicious. Affordable alcohol is a big bonus.

Service was beyond slow. Our waiter kept telling us he’d be right back. 20 minutes to get water. 25 minutes to get salad. Asked for the bill when desert was dropped off then, had to walk our own bill up as our waiter was sitting at another table talking. Taste did not make up for the poor service.

Disappointing

Thanks again Pat for being so accommodating to our grade 8 Science Fair winners. All the students loved their pizza's. And the teachers loved the Pasta Special you served us. We are coming for our Grad night in June but instead of 12 there will be 40. We are all looking forward to it.

Grazie

Went for a nice dinner after work, had the house-made gnocchi, which has got to be the best thing I've ever tasted. They were more than happy to accommodate me and switch it to a tomato-basil sauce as I have some food allergies. My husband had the salmon which came in a dill sauce that was also very delicious. The house-made tirimisu was also incredibly delicious along with our cappuccinos. Everything was perfect- service, ambiance, music selection. Would recommend Bella Vista to anyone looking to eat on College Street, and to anyone looking for an Italian restaurant in the city!

Went for a Birthday dinner with friends. What a great experience from the second we walked in until the moment we left. Roberto was an incredible server with jokes to boot! Our meals ranged from homemade pastas to a seafood plate with lobster tails - all incredible. Patrick served amazing cocktails and kept the wine flowing :) Thank you again for such a fantastic dining experience, it was the perfect beginning to a great evening.

Once again - outstanding !! Linguinni Pescatore and Butter Nut Squash Ravioli and two Lobster Bisques for starters and one Tiramisu (shared) for a beautiful ending.

Bella Vista was spectacular !! Had my in-laws over from Austria and they fell in love with this restaurant, and they aren't Italian. Roberto (our waiter) made everything so special for us. Food and service were 5 stars out of 5. My husband and I will come again for the Seafood Linguini and Vegetarian Butternut Squash Ravioli. All in all one of our new favaourite places to eat in the heart of Little Italy.
