Great restaurant

My husband and I love the atmosphere at Bella Vita. The food is great. My favorite is the Romano crusted chicken but everything is good.

Service was good and a cheerful waitress. Appetizer of calamari fair but a bit greasy. Bread was pretty good. Chicken was good, spaghetti was okay, did not like marinara sauce at all. I am sure there is better Italian food elsewhere in Indy.

We have a great time here. It is local for us. It is on the water and we love watching the boats come in and people stopping for dinner. We love the atmosphere and the food is good. We enjoy he area and our service has been good, however we especially love the bar area. It is quiet and we... More

Because basketball was on we ordered from Bella Vita and had them deliver it. Order was perfect, food was warm and very good. Delivered by a very nice young lady. Perfect dinner and didn't miss a minute of the game.

I've been a regular for many years and always have had great service and food quality. The menu has a wide variety of choices, but specializes in Italian. The atmosphere in the summer time is outstanding. They always have good background music most nights.

We went to Bella Vita to celebrate an anniversary. They gave us a seat on the back patio as we requested, and the best part of the experience was enjoying the view of Geist Reservoir. We saw some other guests drive up in boats and come straight to the restaurant. I got the tilapia with risotto, which was incredible. It... More

Bella Vita is nice restaurant located on the Geist marina. They have good Italian food, a nice bar and a great view. The often have a live band on the weekends. I took a first date here and she really enjoyed it. The restaurant was not to loud so that we could hear each other talk.

Love it here. We love to pull up in our boat and enjoy the food and drinks. Most meals are very consistent and even the Pizza is pretty good.

I went to Bella Vita for an early dinner with friends. It was not bad but nothing stood out as even something better than average. It certainly is priced as if it is something phenomenal. The young peppy waitress must have asked me 20 times if the food was great and wouldn't stop asking until I responded that way. It... More
