As always the food was lovely along with the usual courteous service.
Enjoyed our meal from top to finish: antipasto misto di pesce, lamb shank, topped by a fantastic tiramisu. Friendly staff, true Italians. Great dining experience overall. We are just wondering why it took us this long to dine here.
We booked a table for Father’s Day. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was delicious. Even the teenager agreed!
great visit as always, very much recommended, thanks so much
It was very easy to book online with a prompt confirmation. Welcomed by Owner/manager who was very helpful. The menu was varied but not overwhelming and offered a choice of meats seafood and vegetarian options. the decor was interesting but helped by highish ceilings on a very warm and humid evening. The meal was very good and service prompt and discreet. Will visit again when next in the area for a break.
Excellent food as always. One small thing marred our lunch. We ordered a bottle of red and I asked for the Sicilian which was first on the wine list priced at £15.75 which we thought was very reasonable. When we received the bill we were charged £22.+. I suppose I wasn't exact enough in my ordering but we thought the waiter might have queried which Sicilian wine we wanted. Just a very small thing but it didn't sit well with the four of us!
The restaurant itself is very nice and we all really enjoyed our food (4 adults & 2 children), it was very reasonably priced and I only knocked off one point as the staff were not very friendly, although they were not in any way rude or unprofessional. There was no separate menu for the children, instead the pasta dishes and pizzas came in child portions/prices, although they were huge. We would definitely go again if visiting the area.
The food and service was very good with reasonable prices. The only negative thing was that the atmosphere wasn't very good, the restaurant wasn't very full and it could have looked more festive, I only saw a few strips of tinsel hanging up. The room itself was lovely and with a few more decorations and a tree, the atmosphere for this time of year could have greatly improved. Otherwise, a lovely meal spent with a friend who I hadn't seen for a long time, so a very pleasant evening.
A lovely restaurant where the food is divine. I asked to alter my starter slightly, the waitress took her time to explain the menu, nothing was too much trouble. I had Bruschetta, the Lamb Shank and The Banoffee Pie, it was all gorgeous! I’ve been there a number of times and will certainly be going back.
The visit to Bella Vita was absolutely amazing. The staff were very helpful and made us feel very relaxed, and the food was absolutely outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble and our waitress was only too happy to take photos for my partner and myself. We will definitely visit again. Many thanks, Dave.
