We dined here on 7/13/13. using a Groupon which had been given to us as a gift. We had made reservations, but quickly found out there had been no need for them, as only a few tables were occupied. Water was poured, and about five...More

Very nice. Private, small rooms. We both had pasta dishes and both were very good. Maybe a bit heavy on the pesto sauce. Bread was heavenly and a great wine and beer selection.

We enjoyed dinner at Bella Vita before a performance at the P.A.C. Their halibut special was outstanding and the wine list, while short, was good. Service was very pleasant and we were not rushed. Gelato was outstanding, but I suggest they offer espresso. It's an...More

loved the atmosphere and table service -- my dish was salty - my salad was blah - the gelato was not up to par - the wine selection was sparse - liked the bar good beer selection and specialty drinks (though service was slow).

Wonderful fresh homemade pasta. Great service! We enjoyed a lovely dinner which certainly was the closest to authentic handmade pasta as I've encountered in a long while. We also were quite impressed with the wonderful breakfast that was offered. The food was hot and fresh...More

The food is just ok, not bad but not great. The service was a little slow, considering it wasn't really busy. It's a beautifully decorated restaurant, but it seems awkward to be there, like it's too quiet. It feels like you can't help hearing other...More

The atmosphere at this place is nice, especially if you have a small (5-6 people) group. The way the tables and booths are situated you feel as if you have some privacy. The food is pretty good. Bruschetta is great. I've tried veggie ravioli and...More

Making a reservation was a little difficult during the day since their on line reservation service was down, but someone ultimately did call back to assist me. The restaurant has several small dining areas, which makes it more intimate and quiet than most. I like...More
