“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

Been going to bella vita on a regular basis since it opened and can say I have always enjoyed it.

The food is lovely and very reasonably priced with lunch 2 courses for £5.95. However the main menu isn't that expensive and everything I have tried has been lovely.

The service is great all the staff are so nice and very friendly, especially Tara she is really nice always so happy and you can see she really works hard.

The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated and you can see that the owner is happy to invest in as they regularly make changes to the place which is nice to see.

I recently had my mothers birthday dinner here and it was such as nice night I left the staff some birthday cake and as a thank you they gave our table a round of lemoncello, which I thought was a lovely end to a fab night.

You do need to book as it's very busy everyday. I Would recommend this place to everyone.

“Surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014 via mobile

Surprised to read last review on Bella vita take aways as this is my regular dine in and take away venue can only assume this was written by someone with an axe to grind I purchase at least two take aways a week since it opened and never had cause for complaint food is always warm tasty and value for money and staff are very pleasant and helpful when explaining exactly what dishes are and even ordering food that does not appear on the main menu all in all I would give Bella vita a 10 out of 10 and suggest you also will become a regular after trying it

“Nothing too much trouble.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

We turned up on a busy Friday dinner time at peak time without a reservation. A table was sorted for an agreed time span. The food was great and the service brilliant.
The atmosphere was superb and we were able to relax after a long drive from Aberdeenshire. We thoroughly recommend Bella Vita and their excellent hospitality.

“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

I have eaten in Bella Vita a few times now, and have never been disappointed. Any night of the week you go it is busy, so I would highly recommend booking a table.

Being out of the city centre and just off a main road, it's not somewhere you will stuble upon by chance, but it is well worth the visit every time. The prices are very resonable and the portions generous. I have eaten from the early-evening menu and unlike some establishments the quality, quantity or presentation aren't affected.

I usually have pasta or pizza, and both I would highly recommend - the homemade meatballs are my favourite. I have been with others who have sampled steak, fish and some of the chicken dishes, all looked delicious and plates were left empty!

The decor and atmosphere of the restaurant are perfect, and the staff always very attentive and polite. I would highly recommend this place and will be going back again, and again, and again - you get the picture ;)
