I haven't been to Bella Via for years so thought we'd give it a try. Upon entering, there is an odor that screams remodel me. I had the homemade ravioli for $12.50. I received a small plate with 2 ravioli on it. I ordered a side salad which I thought came with the meal but was charged $3.50 for it.... More

Visited for baby shower. Waitress was very rude. Only one working the shower. Disgusted by every request anyone made. Chicken parm was one of meal choices and at least 6 people had chicken hard as a rock. Couldn't cut or eat it. Needs updated decor and furniture.

Old-fashioned, classic restaurant. We enjoyed homemade pasta and sauce, and a very delicious baked fish. Love the cole slaw. The owner greets you warmly, service is very good. We are able to ride our bicycles to this restaurant, but parking is plentiful. Reminds my husband of the same cuisine at this location years ago. Worth a visit.

I used to love Bella Via however it has become so rundown. The light fixture has dust hanging from it above our table. It is so upsetting to see a place I loved as a child so rundown. Salad is a joke (they had brown lettuce 1 onion slice 1 cherry tomato 1 cuecumber slice) calamati was bland. Don't eat... More

This is a great, old-fashioned family, Italian restaurant. I was on a road trip and the staff at my local hotel recommended this place. When I entered the restaurant I was greeted by the owner. I told him I was looking for take-out and asked what is the best meal them make. He quickly answered the Veal Parmesan. It is... More

My family used the upstairs banquet room this past weekend for a 65th wedding anniversary. As always, the food at Bella Via was good. Some of the best Italian food on the area, I always say. However, this review is based on the banquet room experience. First of all, we had to call our orders into the restaurant the Wednesday... More

The Bella Via has excellent Chicken Parm and it's the only reason I visit the restaurant from time to time. The service has been ridiculously awful every single time I have been there, no matter if it is dinner or lunch, semi-busy (I've never seen it super busy) or totally empty. By awful I mean rude waitress, empty drinks, and... More

Have been going to the Bella Via for 30+ years, and even though it has changed hands, you still receive a great meal for your money. We have never left hungry. The chicken and peppers and cappellini with meat sauce are 2 of our favorites. If you want a salad they have 2 specialty salads that are packed full of... More
