“Overpriced!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Food was good, but nothing spectacular. We felt it was extremely . over-priced.
A rather mundane special for $32, with no side dish or salad.!!
all salads were a-la-carte.
yes , they have a cute wood fired pizza oven right in the main dining room (off the noisy bar), but it makes it very hot for diners.

there are a ton of Italian restaurants in the Rochester area with equal or better food at much more reasonable prices.
Highly doubtful that we would return. Too many other options.

“Small...loud...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

In our never ending search for Wood Fired Pizza, we decided to give La Bella Vita a shot. We didn't have reservations on a Friday night, and were told it would be about a half hour. That didn't seem bad at all. Funny thing was...there were several empty tables in the dining area plus a couple high tops in the bar (the high tops got filled after we sat at the bar). We ordered fried calamari, this was excellent and a good sized portion....we split a Rustica Pizza. There pizzas are rather small sized compared to other places in the Rochester area. The pizza was just OK...nothing extraordinary. We had also split an order of wood fired chicken wings....those were just charred wings with a balsamic glaze...nothing to make me want to order again. I suppose if we went again, we would not get pizza or wings, neither was remarkable enough to make me want to return...and I am sorry about that.

Great spot for quiet dinner with friends, family or just for two. Food is consistently good and service is great. Great neighborhood spot.
