The service was a little harried, but in the world of Covid-19, I'll give it a pass. The restaurant was very full. After tasting the food, I understand why. The food was very tasty. There was a live singer who was not the greatest, but...he was still fun. People were encouraged to dance as well. Our server missed a couple of things on our order, but she was profusely apologetic and compensated us accordingly.More

Overall this place wasn’t bad but this is definitely not a place if you’re hoping to have a nice dine in experience social distancing wise. This place is located on the west side of Sedona about 15 minutes from the main part of town. The...restaurant is located in the Sedona Shadows resort. Upon entering, all the tables on the outdoor eating section was filled and you had to walk through it to the main entrance to check in. The outdoor seating area has a live singer and everyone was not wearing masks and guests were dancing around close with each other to the music like covid never existed. This was so concerning.... Upon entering, all the tables were filled and no social distancing was observed. I had my mask on the entire time until I ate. The food itself was not bad but not something to write home about. We had the insalata de forte to start which was okay, nothing spectacular. The chicken parm was my dinner and was recommended by our waiter. The chicken itself was not bad but I felt like the chicken parm at Olive Garden was way better. Overall I didn’t mind this place but probably wouldn’t return. I probably would avoid it if you’re wanting to social distance during the pandemic.More

We showed up at five to four they open at four. Sign says see hostess for patio seating. We where first ones there and a few groups showed up after us and sat themselves in patio and got attention while we still waited at front...door to be seen. Door was open late. Person tried to deny my service dog service inside wanted us to sit outside. Than they from four to five only serve drinks and appetizers so we had to wait an hour to place our order. It took 45 mins for our order to come out. Other tables had their food in twenty mins and no we didn’t order anything that would take 45 mins For the price of the food I feel like a salad or soup should be included it was expensive. We will not return or recommend it to others.More

Can't say enough about the food at Bella Vita. It is all so good and most is made from scratch. We have been dining here 2-3 times per month lately. The outdoor patio is lovely and the entertainment is what makes it so much fun....There is a lively atmosphere on the patio, and inside the restaurant it is warm and cozy. Inside or outside, you feel like you are dining at a restaurant in Italy.More

I am extremely picky when it comes to Italian food, well all food. The server was super accommodating as I can’t eat red sauce/( gives me heart burn) they were willing to sub. with Alfredo. I ended up getting the Pappardelle Funghi, but sub. the...pappardelle with gnochhi( easier for me to digest). It was incredible. The smoked taste, mushrooms, gnochhi. Cooked exactly as requested and absolutely delicious. My gf got the eggplant Parmesan and it was just excellent. Great sauce and the eggplant was thinly sliced and cooked well to perfection, not like some Italian restaurants where you get raw eggplant stuck inside of cheese. We will definitely come again next time we are in Sedona. Micheal our waiter was incredible. We went to other high end restaurants and they didn’t even have the courtesy to ask how our food was or even just check in, but Micheal did the whole time. Highly recommend. Decor is also very romantic inside.More

We had just checked in to the resort after flying into Phoenix and driving 2 hours. We were a bit tired, but wanted to relax and have a drink. So we headed over to Bella Vita and we were so surprised. The very large outdoor...dining space was so lovely, peaceful, and inviting. We were just going to have a drink, but one look at the comprehensive menu and we ordered dinner and a dinner salad. I had the Veal Shank and my husband had a pasta dish. Both were very good and enough to take some to our 2 bedroom unit for dinner the next evening. One highlight that we loved was the music and dancing in the open air. Thursdays and Friday nights.More

Went for early bird dining and it did not disappoint. Ordered some happy hour appetizers, the Caprese was very good, husband had calamari and loved it. Drinks were OK, pretty weak so we had wine with dinner. The chicken piccata was very good, just the...right size portion. Husband had the Italian sausage and ate every bit. The outside patio is large and felt Social distanced. Waiter was good and called us by name, we will go backMore
