Good Italian near Centraal Station

Open Sunday evening. Had dinner here. You sit down and order and they bring olives, bread, butter and spicy olive oil. My wife had a special salmon and spinach lasagne (very good) and I ordered a green salad (some type of lettuce with a lemony dressing) and a Napoli pizza. This was a thin crust... read more

Chanced upon this quaint italian restaurant near the main Antwerpen train station. The seafood soup is fantastic and very much a comfort food for a cold night. However, the spaghetti vongole is less than ideal. The pasta is a little overdone and it is a ketchup version rather than what I thought to be a lighter white wine version (which... More

We had dinner at the Bella Vista last Saturday, a beautiful Sunny day. So we were sitting outside. Well the food is by far the best in this neighbourhood. They really take pride in serving you a proper good quality meal and accompanying wine. Only a second coffee we could not order anymore due to closure of the kitchen. That's... More

Many restaurants in Antwerp closed earlier except those near Central Station. I have dinner in this restaurant, where French and Italian food with English menu are provided. We ordered fried calamari, salad and a pasta with smoked salmon. The food is good, the staff had good service. So I highly recommend this restaurant.

Reasonable food, reasonable portions, nothing special but better than the pizzerias that abound. My wife ordered Kidneys, which were undercooked, complained, they didn't really like it, but kidneys are an acquired taste. Not worth going to especially, okay if passing'

My wife and I have been going to the Bella Vista for the past 8 years. The food is great, the service very good. The owner and all the waiters are warm and friendly. The Penne Arabieta is the best I've ever tasted. Cozy interior. Nice atmosphere.

The two dinners we had at Ristorante Bella Vista were the highlights of our 2-week Belgian holiday. Having had an overdose of french fries and anything else deep-fried, we were desperate for proper food. Suddenly we found this hidden gem just around the corner of The Central Station and stepped inside. At Bella Vista the service was very friendly and... More

I would not recommand this restaurant. Frozen carpaccio you wait for 30 minutes. Dry pasta with too much pepper (to cover other tatses I guess). Nothing really bas BUT not a good experience.
