People we know raved about this restaurant and took us there for lunch earlier this month. I had the fettucini; the pasta was tender (you could tell it was fresh and homemade, not purchased) and the white sauce was tasty. My husband was disappointed in the Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich. He didn't care for the meat, and he said that it... More

Like to go for a weekday dinner. Pizza is great. They have large steak sandwiches with quality meat. No grizzle in it. Their wraps are also worth the price. Family restaurant.

I love dining at La Bella Via. There really isn't much in the way of good Italian food in Warren County, but this place is enjoyable. The services is always friendly and attentive. They have very good pizza and their pastas are homemade. The atmosphere is nice, not too casual and yet not fancy.

La Bella Via is a friendly, casual Italian restaurant with excellent food. The pasta is homemade, the marinara sauce is as well which made my dinner so enjoyable. Homemade rolls and salad are included with the meal. Prices are very affordable.Yes, there is beer, wine and I believe full bar service. The atmosphere is warm and quiet, amongst a very... More

After living in the area for years, went here for the first time a couple weeks ago and was very pleased. How did I miss this one? Food was wonderful and portions were huge. Wait staff were wonderful - patient (we had a party of 10 - and mostly kids!) and prompt. Full bar.

Passing through the area, we stopped in this restaurant for lunch 12:00pm on Saturday afternoon, and were very surprised. Small, but very clean, and nice decor. The staff was very friendly, the prices were very reasonable, and the food was amazing. Would we stop in here again? Absolutely, and would drive out of the way to get there.

I have eaten at La Bella Via a couple times. This past time I had the chicken parmigiana. It was very good. I had the Italian Wedding Soup which I enjoyed as well. The waitress was very friendly and helpful and made sure we got refills on our drinks. The rolls came with both a flavored oil and butter and... More

We can't say enough about the 2 parties that we have had or attended in the past year. Sal is amazing to work with and the waitresses were very accommodating. We had our son's first birthday at La Bella Via yesterday, for a party of 35. The food was delicious, everyone kept talking about how great the appetizers were, we... More

Usually don't go for these specials in restaurants but figured I'd give it a try here. Can't believe how great they were, and unbelievable at $2.95/doz. Steamed perfectly and sweet, beautiful, nice size little necks. Have been there twice now this summer on Wed nights when they have this special. Last night 2 gentlemen near us had 8 dozen each...
