“The only place to order Gluten free Pizza!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

I have decided to start rating restaurants and will begin with my favourite pizza place in town.
I have been diagnosed with celiac disease for 6 years and have struggled to find good gluten free comfort food until i heard about Bella Vista. Bella Vista's Gluten free pizza is a bright spot in an otherwise dismal gluten free pizza market in Ottawa. Bella Vista is one of the only pizza places that make its gluten free dough in house and always you to order the pizza in any size you want! You can even buy the gluten free dough from them to make at home if you’re worried about cross contamination. Some may feel Bella Vista pizza is expensive but in comparison to other chains and restaurants serving frozen gluten free cardboard crust (and in 1 size) I will gladly pay the extra dollar or two.

“BEST BREAKFAST IN TOWN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I have been coming to Bella Vista since K&S Pizza moved and became a pseudo Moxies (yuck) I never looked back.

Their french toast and Deb (the waitress) keep us coming back!! My husband orders the meat breakfast and it is piled with all sort of goodness!!

They just renovated and it is a more modern looking however the pizza baking area is still retro and kitschy!!

Least but not last Deb makes that place!! She always has a smile and a story, they don't make waitresses like that anymore.

“Excellent Pizza and Lazagna”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

We have been customers here since the 70's and keep coming back for the pizza and lasagna (and cheap beer). That says it all for their food.

If you order a large draft, watch out, it is more of a large German stein than the typical smaller North American sizes...

They have very good prices on daily specials, but we never tried them, sticking to our favourite Italian dishes for the occasions we visit them.

“Meh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Had take out veg w/ pepperoni pizza from here this evening. Rather disappointed. Very poor value for the dollar. Lorenzo's or Gabriel pizza would have been far better at a better price.

“Gluten Free Pizza that rocks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

One thing to go for at Bella Vista (well 2!) is the Pizza and a nice cold beer.
Not sure if they still have them, but they used to have huge litre-sized, frosted steins.
Not only that but their pizza has a gluten free option!

Always reasonably priced. A staple of the "Ottawa Lebanese Pizza" family.
