Our favorite restaurant in Wichita, KS!!

We love Bella Vita!! It's small, intimate, romantic atmosphere, with soft quiet pleasant background music to allow for conversation without having to yell at each other. The food is absolutely wonderful!!! Excellent service! Always a lovely dining experience that we will return to again and again... read more

I have been to Bella Vita a few times and each time I thoroughly enjoyed it. I took my bestie for her birthday. The presentation was beautiful. The salad comes out looking small because it is beautifully wrapped in a cucumber sliced longways. But when you pull it apart, the plate fills with a fresh yummy salad. After a delicious... More

It is definitely the best romantic restaurant in Wichita. The dimly lit room, the quant tables and the ambience transforms you from Wichita to Tuscany.

I really wanted to like this place. Good Italian restuarants aren't easy to find in Wichita and this place has good reviews, so I had high expectations. It started off well. The bread and dipping sauce that they gave our table was good, and we also ordered a stuffed mushrooms appetizer that we all enjoyed. Unfortunately, it went downhill after... More

Went here on a Saturday night for my brother's birthday. Chose from TA ratings, and was not disappointed. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, with an understated elegance. The food is top notch, and they have a well rounded wine list. Our server, Rachel, did a great job, and belted out "Happy Birthday" with us to our brother like a... More

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor my husband and I decided to travel across town to eat here. Best decision ever. The outside is deceiving,but the inside is wonderful. Great setting and ambience. Calamari was lightly breaded and cooked just right. Bread and dipping sauce wonderful. Entrees wonderful. We are out of towners that visit Wichita every 2 or... More

A colleague and I were told to go here by the Hampton Inn staff a few blocks away. I must say, I was shocked. It looks very average from the outside. But, I will tell you, the service is friendly, the food is very good and the wine is reasonable. We had a great meal in the bar. We just... More

While it is a small restaurant the food here is really good. Service and atmosphere is very good. The menu has a good mix of dishes. Would go back anytime.

One of the best kept secrets in town. On the south end of a strip center with blacked out windows, it looks like a dive from the outside. A friend and his wife drove up, looked, turned around, and left. Their loss until I brought them back for their anniversary. We've eaten here on and off since they opened. Great... More
