The menu was not the same old Italian. My choice was delicious, and others thought so too. The wine cost was very reasonable.

Based on reviews it sounded to my wife and I like Bella Via is known for its pizza, but I think that understates this restaurants charm. Sure, the pizza is coal-fired in an oven - nice and crispy. But, the pasta dishes were quite good too. Moreover, the salad with pear and walnut was fresh and tasty and the appetizer... More

I was first introduced to Coal Fired pizza while a family member was attending Yale. Sal has the real deal and his authentic NYC restaurant is a fantastic gem in LIC!

Second time being here. Good selection of menu items. Pizza is just the right amount of crust and cheese. The baby kale salad was awesome. The wait staff is very attentive and love the atmosphere.

We dropped off someone and decide we needed some quick dinner. very nice restaurant...The bread and dipping oil were very good. The food was good.,though I did feel the chicken was pressed...instead of real. My husband really enjoyed his Lasagna.

Nice and quiet, family friendly, no surprises. Decent table bread and a GREAT balsamic vinegar; pleased they spent a little extra on it. Tried their pagila e fino - classic, with peas and prosciutto. Passable but pasta a little over, prosciutto overly chewy. Nice baby arugula salad with commendable bleu cheese dressing. To be fair, this place's strength is pizza... More

Was down the street getting drinks at the LIC Bar and needed some food so the bartender and another bar patron referred us to Bella Via. What a great find, they do Coal Fire Oven Pizzas and amazing pastas etc. We started with the bruschetta and moved on to dinner. I got the traditional spaghetti and meatballs and my friend... More
