The owner remembered me from 13 years ago. The gnocchi dish was better than I remembered it. I'll be back.

Had reservations for 7:30 and still had no food by 9:00. When we arrived we were told about the specials and the wonderful pasta the Sri Lankan chef was able to prepare. An hour later our waiter was making each meal in our party of 8 and bringing out 1 meal every 20 min. (Not sure what happened to the Sri Lankan chef!) Worst restaurant experience I’ve ever encountered. Could not give the Service category anything less than 1 star (too bad).

The waitress that served us made over 5 errors with our orders. Perhaps she should write them down in future if she cannot get them correct by memory. Additionally, when we informed her that there were issues with our orders, she tried to tell us that it was our fault (ie. that we did not request a specific thing). Issues happen and that’s understandable, but a better attitude in dealing with such errors would be an asset. Food was good overall.

Went for mother's day dinner. Everything as usual was excellent! The food was perfect, service was friendly and efficient, the atmosphere was not too loud but not awkwardly quiet either. Couldn't ask for a better experience.

This was quite possibly the best dining experience I've ever had!! Our server, Roberto, was very friendly and truly went above and beyond to ensure that we had a good time. We were at the restaurant to celebrate a friend's engagement and every one of us had an incredible meal (I had the gnocchi, it was sensational), along with a surprise piece of delicious tiramisu afterward. One friend could not drink alcohol that night so she was given a mocktail free of charge as well, which was a very thoughtful gesture. Our whole group is still talking about how lovely our evening was, thank you Bella Vista, we'll be back again very soon!! :)

The atmosphere was nice, and the server was kind and friendly. However, as the restaurant became busier it became clear to us that the restaurant only had the 1 server for an entire restaurant, thus the service was not great. The food... the food was bad. there is no way around it. The food was bad, as in tasteless. It was clear to us that the sauces were just thrown on top of the food, before leaving the kitchen, and the sauces themselves were not flavourful. What's happened to this place?

Great restaurent! Went with my mom and husband and had a wonderful time. The food was high quality and very reasonably priced. We had a delicious wine and was treated to a tiramisu for my husband's birthday. Our waiter went above and beyond and made us laugh quite a bit. Overall great atmosphere, great food and great service!

Waiter deemed uninterested. Never made eye contact and we had to go up to the bar to get the bill. Tables and bathrooms were not clean. Felt like it was a bother that we chose to eat there.

We went out for a dinner and the restaurant was very quiet which we understand is normal for a Sunday night. Service was casual and prompt, not cloying like some of the other restaurants in Little Italy. The basic brochetta was excellent. We ordered seconds. The meals well prepared with generous portions.. The beet gnocchi was outstanding. Atmosphere was not fancy but we will return due to the quality of the food.

I wouldn't recommend it for summerlicious..maybe as a desperate dinner. Food was mediocre and the bread they served was probably from the day before...after we mentioned that they took it back warm it up and returned it saying .."here some fresh bread" ..was kinda if insulting.

Overall our meal was enjoyable at Bella Vista. The salmon was excellent as was the Famosa Penne. Vodka rigatoni was a little heavy on the sauce.. The apps were very generous but I'd expect better grilled calamari from an Italian restaurant. Very heavy on the garlic on the Caesar salad. Nice tiramisu for dessert. We'd go back.

Don't waste your money service was terrible. Food was like eating shoe leather. I could barely cut my veal with the knife. Sauce was so watered down there was no flavour. Had to ask for more bread while we waited had to ask for more drinks while we waited, no one came to table to check on us, waitress was very cranky and the guy working could care less after 2 hours of waiting for food it came to the table cold I had to get up to mention this as no one came back to table. The side that came with meal was a slice and a half of potato and few slices of carrot and the fibrous stem of broccoli. Please do not waste your money here. Finally restaurant could care less if you are there or the terrible service they provide. McDonald's is far better.

A fantastic dinner, we were there for Winterlicious and expected small helpings.... no! We had excellent food and amounts. I loved the lightly grilled calamari and the veal scallopini was delicious. Friends loved the homemade Tiramisu and the lobster bisque. The host/owner was very nice and attentive. Will definitely go back.
