Ristorante Bella Vita Italian Bar and Grill - Los Altos Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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.
The food was tasteless , and the pasta over cooked. The server did not know what spaghetti al olio was. The bruschetta were soaked in water.. overall was a big disappointment as we had been there earlier in November and everything was good. The reason we came back.. I don’t think we will return . The prices were jacked up for the season also.. we had no wine or alcohol and all we had was pasta. Still the bill was over 250.. for what???
I selected this restaurant mostly for service reviews. Our waiter was barely adequate. Waited some time for waiter to approach table to take drink order. Never checked back after serving dinner. We instructed server to give my husband check so we could treat. Waiter did not give it to the right person’ had to argue to get the bill.
Food was ok, however we were not greeted upon arrival for over 10 minutes. Unsightly water stains in all ceiling corners, seating very worn looking, very crowded. We had to move our table out just to sit down. One of our guests was sitting right next to a big column.
The food is always superb: fresh, flavorful, and steaming hot. Service is really exceptional and ambiance is wonderful. The only criticism I have is the wine list. The only wines that are less than $34 are the house wines and the house Chardonnay was one of the worst I have ever had. It was actually bitter. The markup on wines I am familiar with is more than triple what I pay retail. So next visit I plan to have a cocktail.
This is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is always delicious, the service is friendly and efficient, and the desserts are fabulous. It is a special place that is great for any occasion. .. a quiet date night or a larger group of 4 or 8. The ambiance is lovely with Its Italian theme, and the restaurant is much larger than it looks from the outside.
I love that they are willing to make changes to dishes in order to satisfy the customer. All restaurants should be willing to please the customer but this is not always the case. Every time I have gone there they have wanted to make my food in a way that I will like it! Nice job!
