We dine out often and live really close to this restaurant. We first visited about one year ago and never returned. This place is very busy every night and we decided to give it another shot. Last night was great! Our food was great, beer was cold! The servers are a little inexperienced but they were fine. On weekends they... More

There were 4 of us and 2 of us loved what we ordered and the other 2 were not as happy. The service was very good. We were sitting outside on a beautiful evening and at the table next to ours was a family with little children. When they started crying the parents did nothing to try and quiet them... More

Had dinner here about a year ago and it was great. Perfect for traditional Italian food, a cozy atmosphere and great service.

We had not been to Bella Via for several years except for a couple of party functions. It was always average, but we are pleased that we tried it anew. The food was very tasty with ample portions. Entrees come with soup or salad. The kitchen was very accommodating in preparing the dishes with some things left out or on... More

Years ago my wife and I were introduce to Bella Via by two dear friends. It was one of the best introductions that were ever made to us! The owner, Maurizio, is one of the hardest working, caring and giving souls around. He came to this country knowing no english and has created one of the best restaurant experiences on... More

My husband and I love to come here. It's a fabulous place to get an amazing meal! Reasonably priced. And I love that we can bring out toddler with no issues! The servers are always attentive and extremely helpful, descriptive, and help offer recommendations and specialties. Every time the food has surpassed the last time we visited! Excellent fresh flavors... More

We have been going her for years--always consistent although menu could use some updating or additions of new items. Help is always attentive--Maurizio (owner) is a great guy and makes us feel very welcome. Have had several parties here and they have been terrific.

My husband started taking me to Bella Via two years ago after we moved along the lakefront and many of his friends suggested dining here. Every visit has confirmed the last pleasant experience from the all around wonderful service and amazing food every time. Our past visit we brought my mother and father in law for my mother inlaws birthday.... More

Had reservations, thought we would have a cocktail before being seated. We were the only two sitting at the bar and none of the wait staff would even make eye contact, let alone take a drink order. We then had our appetizers come out at the same time as entrees, and they skipped our salads entirely. Waiter did not revisit... More
