Our small family celebrated a family birthday at Bella Vita last week and all really enjoyed the fabulous hospitality and food. We were attended to in a very professional yet friendly manner by Maggie. Thanks for the birthday candle in our Mum's dessert, that really topped off a special lunch! Highly recommended.

Thoroughly recommended: Wide variety of italian-style dishes suitable for lunch or dinner; very good wine- and craft beer selection; food was good though not exceptional and portion sizes were reasonable. Service was efficient and personable. Nice ambience in the restaurant.
