Our group of about 24 people, ate in the private room and had a wonderful experience on a Thursday night. My filet was definitely "petite" but cooked perfectly. Carrots were al dente. And the salad was amazing. Wrapped in a long slice of cucumber, once you sliced it, a lovely salad almost popped out onto your salad plate. Very clever... More

We went to Bella Vita for a family meal on a Friday night. We made a reservation (which is recommended), and they seated us immediately. From the outside, the place doesn't look especially impressive, but don't be fooled. The food was great, the service was great, and we had an all-around enjoyable experience. Oh, and try the lobster bisque if... More

My girlfriend and I had a fabulous time at the Bella Vita tonight. When you arrive make sure you ask for Rachel...she is very sweet and kind, and she will be studying to be a nurse. We both had the caesar salad which was 9 out of 10...one of the best caesar in town with big delicious croutons! The Chianti... More

We stopped in for lunch. The Chicken Ala Vodka was excellent! The pasta was cooked perfectly. Certainly one of the best restaurant on the west side of Wichita.

My husband and I were in town visiting his family and we looked for an intimate place to take all 14 of us that would have excellent food. What a find this was! Everything we had was excellent! We are from Dallas so as foodies we love to find great restaurants and I so wish we could pack this place... More

This place has amazing food. I had the Canneloni Crepes and they were beyond fabulous, I also had the stuffed Portebello mushroom and the house salad, both of which were super. Drink menu is a little pricey but the food is reasonable and some of the best i have had in town.

Based on other reviews, I expected an excellent meal, but the food, service, and atmosphere were average at best. The servers were young & meant well, but...it felt as if they were pretending to be waiters. The "Caesar salad" was a chunk of romaine that I had to cut up to eat. The veal parmigiana was ok, but the sauce... More

Looks kind of shady outside, but this is actually really nice inside. I am not a big fan of italian restaurants usually, but I will definitely return to this place. The food is excellent and prepared fresh from scratch as ordered. The portion are really reasonable for the price. The service is absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend this restaurant.

My husband took me to Bella Vita to celebrate my birthday. I've lived here all my life and am just now discovering this place...and it is amazing!! It can be pricey, but we splurged and ordered an appetizer, 2 entrees & 2 salads and still stayed under $60 including the tip...not bad! My recommendation...order the Chicken Bella Vita. Oh my...

We are tourists visiting Wichita and were seeking a good meal - of course we rely on the thoughtful reviewers of Trip Advisor for guidance. We noticed Bella Vita was close by and had 9 five-star reviews so we thought how can we miss with this impressive showing. So we motored over to West Ave. and enjoyed a wonderful meal... More
