Reviews seemed to say that this place had pretty bad service but that the pizza was excellent. So we ordered a pizza to go. I arrived at the time they predicted it would be ready, asked for my order, and saw them take the pizza out of the oven and put it in the box. When driving home, the box... More

We loved this little Italian restraunt. We stumbled across it one freezing evening, lights were glistening looking very inviting. The warmth was obvious from the minute we stepped inside both from the heaters and the smiles and welcome of the staff. From Huge pizza, delicious pasta and soups, yummy well dressed salads and tastey complimentary bread we tried so many... More

Love this place, in fact this is #2 on our list for LIC. The food is always fresh and delicious. This is a go to with a party of 4 or more. The only negative part, is that the service is poor. When I say poor I mean, slow and non-interested. This is one of those places where you better... More

If service is important to you, I'd skip Bella Via. Slow and ,just general poor service. The food was quite good, but takes the quality down when youre ignored at the table. Lots of other options along this street, we didnt have time in town to try any others but I would next time I visit.

The food was great, we a had soup and a salad to start which was great. Then we split a large Margherita pizza, which we had to take half of it home. The pizza was out of this world, made to perfection. This is now one of my favorite pizza spots. I highly recommend this place, especially for the pizza.... More

You can't go wrong with anything that you choose. Pasta, pizza, grilled calamari.... My personal favorite, linguine alla vongole (white).

Long Island City, across the East River from Manhattan has undergone quite a metamorphosis in the last 5+ years. Bela Via - several blocks away from the river front captures a bit of this with the charm of traditional Queens NY. On our last visit I had the Spaghetti Carbonara, my dish of choice whenever it is on the menu.... More

Had an evening meal at Bella Via during our week long stay at LIC, family of 4, youngest is 14. Between us we had pizza's and pasta. All were excellent, full of flavour and any changed accommodated easily. Staff were friendly and helpful. We would have eaten there again but too many other choices to try out.

My daughter and I had dinner here. We ordered the lamb shank and a pasta. The food quality was pretty good and the service was very good. I will go back.
