Disappointing, expensive for what was served, mediocre flavours. Friendly service but not good value, visited before & was expecting more.

The special for today was pea and mint soup. It was served with several slices of toasted Italian bread and a saucer of freshly chopped mint and a small jug of cream. It is these touches that set the Bella Vista apart. The soup was lovely by the way.

I like to pop in for a quick espresso with a splash of grappa, wonderful on a cold day. Nice courtyard seating area and good selection of snacks.

Lovely little cafe in Trowbridge. My wife and I visited here for lunch. We both decided to sit in the enclosed courtyard as it was a lovely day. The service was excellent and the food very good. We would definitely go again next time we are in the area.
