Excellent food. Excellent service. Whether you're having lunch or dinner, the utmost care is taken in the food prep and service. I've even hosted a party for 30 people there, and everything went smoothly and everyone enjoyed their meal. "West Wichita's hidden gem" is an overused cliche', but it truly fits. The caesar salad is one of the best I've... More

Would highly recommend...food was great and service was excellent. Made for a great date location, make reservations on weekend to save a spot. Bread and olive oil dip made the meal. Nice wine selection.

Superb atmosphere, excellent service, tasty bread, clean upscale place. My pasta was overcooked and soggy, however. This was very disappointing for such a dedicated Italian restaurant. That and the relatively expensive menu unfortunately made the place feel over-rated, so I would recommend trying elsewhere for better value, especially if you enjoy al-dente pasta.

It was an icy winter night, warmed by the cozy ambiance of Bella Vita. Each of our meals were expertly prepared. The gluten free choices are delectable, not just passable, which is a delightful departure from the normal gf experience. I can't wait to visit again!

Don't be fooled by the humble exterior and the strip mall location, once you are inside Bella Vita has lots of ambiance. My wife and I ate there again this week and had wonderful experience because of our server, Rachel. She was attentive, personable and witty, which made for a great dining experience. The complimentary bread with olive oil, balsamic... More

I usually come here my last night in the area when here for business. This time I brought a colleague. We both enjoyed our Chicken Parmigiana. The real highlight this time was the dessert. I enjoyed a red velvet treat while my colleague devoured a tiramisu. I would highly recommend with er dessert. I also had to pick up another... More

I stopped in here for dinner as I was simply passing by and the place looked interesting. I was met and seated promptly and my server took my drink order just as quickly. I ordered the chicken parmigiana as I guess I am on a quest to find the best in the USA. It was really good although I would... More

The weird thing is, almost every time you have poor service and lack of supply in a restaurant, it means it is all bad. Not the case here. Whoever is cooking at this little place is truly gifted. The food is incredible. But, from what we could tell on this last visit, everything else needs a significant amount of work.... More
