Very good lunch. Nice ambiance and service as well as good value.
We were at the restaurant for the Valentine dinner night. Food was excellent, so were the services. The environment was perfect for a romantic dinner night. Recommend to add more vegetarian options.
This was our anniversary dinner. Options are vast and pretty good. We got a complimentary Tiramisu for our anniversary. Appreciate the gesture.
We had a very good time. It was very crowded for Valentine's Day, and it took awhile to get our food, but that was really just due to the occasion and a very full restaurant. The food was really good, the ambience nice and the prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend it.
Go to when in the Los Altos Hills area. Traditional Italian. The food and service complement the experience of the reason for the visit.
Bella Vita is a nice restaurant for friends, family, and celebrations. The menu has a nice variety of dishes, the specials are also very good, and there is a full bar. Bella Vita is one of my favorite places to eat.
Excellent service. The polenta/mushroom starter is very tasty. The Marsala reduction sauce laced with Gorgonzola is particularly yummy. The penne Siciliano was tasty. The chef knows what to do with Italian style dishes.
We were very pleased with the food. The service could have been a little better. We plan on returning.
Food has been consistently good over many years. Ristorante Bella Vita is a family favorite restaurant.
We have always enjoyed dining here. However, this time the meal did not live up to past dining experiences. Cappelini Al Pomodoro with added chicken was not very flavorful. Also, the portion seemed smaller than in the past. Beet Salad was very good. Service was friendly and attentive. We like that we can come here for a quiet, casual meal so will try again with hopes of a return to the good meals we have enjoyed in the past.
Service was excellent as usual, but I have to say I was disappointed with the fettucine bella vita pasta dish. Compared to past visits (at least 4 times/year), the portion was small, the sauce bland, and the veggies were sparce. The gamberi prawns entree was the expected quantity, but a little bland also.
Really enjoyed the outdoor atmosphere! Exceeded our expectations. 5 out of 5 dishes ordered were fabulous.
Bella Vita is a classic, go-to neighborhood Italian restaurant. They have a classic menu with plenty of selections of all courses without being overwhelming, plus they always have a couple of good entree specials. The wine list is almost exclusively Italian, but no Barbera! How can an Italian restaurant not offer a Barbera? Despite the lack of Barbera, we keep going back because the food and service is very good and it's in our neighborhood.
Bella Vita was great, however they had no record of the reservation I had made on Open Table. I had gotten a confirmation number too fro Open Table. Was disappointed.
We love this restaurant... beautiful plates of delicious Italian foods...always delivered to our table with amiable waiters....great way to celebrate our anniversary.
What a high note to end the MLK weekend...delicious food, etc!!
Great food and service. Nice for evening out. I hope you'll enjoy it as we did.
This is one of our favorite restaurants, whether just my wife and me, or with another couple or two. It's quiet enough for good conversation, and the food and atmosphere are excellent.
The restaurant has a family feel to it. Cozy and warm inside. The wait staff seemed to be doing a pretty good job considering all the full tables. The food was tasty with a good portion size. I also liked the wine selection.
Service was OK, but not great. The greeting was one of disinterest. There was nothing that made the occasion special. The food was, again, OK, but not special. We're walking distance, but I'm not sure that it was worth the walk.
