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.

I frequent eat at this establishment several times a month. They are very consistent with the quality of their food. The entrees are moderately priced. It a great place for a date night.

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.

I rarely write reviews but this pizza is DISGUSTING and exceptionally overpriced. First of all, the pizza was totally soggy. The crust was pretty much mush, and it was sagging so badly that you could hardly take the pizza off the pan to put it on your plate and it couldn't hold the toppings up. It was lukewarm, if that....

Lots of choices in the area and we lucked into this one. I had Pasta Carbonara and OMG it was so rich and so good. We found all the food in New York expensive by Texas standards so this one was a good value.

After not being able to find the original restraunt we were looking for in LIC, we ended up at Bella Via. The atomsphere and decor was very nice and it seemed like lots of locals frequented the establishment but perhaps I chose the wrong dish but the calzone pizza was pretty bland although there was lots of it.
