“Best pizzas ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Staff were lovely, very accommodating for a takeaway order (including dessert!). Even though we did take out, it was a lovely place to wait and we were offered drinks. The pizzas were the best we have had in a long time.

“Lovely meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Good decor, reasonable prices, Nice staff and lovely food, We both had a prawn entree, with 7 big prawns, yummy, and I liked the fact i could have an entree sized main. We shared a Tiramisu for dessert and it was perfect.

“Great space and Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We enjoyed a three course meal here and our bill was pretty good. My mother in law is vegetarian and also doesnt like garlick etc but this was no problem to staff and they happly sorted her with what she likes. The two areas for the dinning room give a feeling of space.
Don"t usually eat dessert but we were all temped and they were all very good.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Had lunch here to day with friends......we chose the $10 lunch menu which had a great selection to choose from. We all chose a different meal and each one was excellent. The restaurant was very busy, the service was excellent and the staff very friendly and attentive. The wine list is extensive and a good quantity of wine in your glass. Two of our group had desserts and commented that they were delicious. Nice atmosphere, no loud music, just some very nice Italian style music in the background and we all commented what a great place and we will definetly return there....Thanks.

“Check out the lunch menu at this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

The dinner reviews here show the class of Bella Vita, but I have to add that they serve the best value/quality lunch menu I have come across. A lunch meal has to be served and enjoyed within your lunch break of course, and they scored there too. I'm not prone too posting reviews, but man, these guys deserve one!
