There has always been a debate over who makes the best pizza in Ottawa, and there are good candidates. However for as long as I can remember the BV has been the best. Loads of pepperoni buried under a ton of cheese. Now that is what I call pizza! I went there as a kid with my parents, spent my... More

Used to be a regular here since the late 70's until recently when I noticed, just before entering to order a take-out pizza, that the guy standing in the window alternated between rolling out dough, spreading sauce and affixing toppings between wiping his nose or his forehead with his bare hand and then going back to what he was doing...

We have been going to Bella Vista for years and often bragged about how it is the best pizza place in town. Well I beg to differ now. We went there tonight expecting to have a great pizza. First of all the appetizers were advertised as 50% off because it was a SENS night. Well we ordered onion rings as... More

We had had breakfast at Bella Vista, which we completely enjoyed and so we were really anticipating a great Italian dinner...we were beyond disappointed. The lasagna was just lasagna sheets about one inch thick (no meat sauce at all between layers)...just like someone had put a box full of lasagna sheets in hot water then just put it on the... More

My wife and I often go to Bella Vista for their very tasty pizza, but they also have a wide selection of home style comfort food. Just had the Bella Vista lasagna with meat and Italian sausage. Rounded out with a nice beer, exactly what one needs on a wet Fall night. Will return!

We recently went to Bella Vista for our annual visit. It was a very pleasant experience. The restaurant was busier and had a livelier vibe than in recent years. That's a good thing. Our combination pizza was tasty. And, the service was good. We will undoubtedly return.

I like this restraunt, and the food very much. Unfortunately this time around I did not get any pizza as we were there for breakfast, large portions and done right.(I think breakfast was just added to menu) Not far from CHEO.

This restaurant has been open since 1971. I went to it as a child, and loved it. It is every bit as good as it was in the 1970s (albeit with updated decor). This place has excellent pizza - one of the very best (with Collonade) in Ottawa - or anywhere else for that matter. It has very professional and... More
