Went to celebrate our 20th anniversary to Bella Vita, had a great time and very satisfied, our steaks and lobsters were very tender, the server a gentleman from another planet kind and helpful, we will definitely go back. Decor is old but don't care as long as it's clean and the food is superb that's all it matters.

Every special occasion we have gone to the Bella Vita for dinner. Last night we went to celebrate our 40th Wedding anniversary and we were so terribly disappointed. Unknown to us the venue has been sold and the quality of the food has definitely gone downhill. Where the Prime Rib used to be so tender and lean it was very fatty and tough. The schnitzel was heavily breaded and not much meat or sauce. We were actually in the Bistro and I saw a friend go to the dining room, I saw her today and asked how her meal was and she too said awful..the seafood was like rubber. Too bad I guess all good things must end with time!

The decor is sooo very tired but it is the food that is the most "terrible". The menu is old and very outdated, the dishes are pedestrian at best. Something you would be served at a cheap, family restaurant. Bland and boring fare you can taste the loss of inspiration in every bite. I don't know if it is the chef or the managements fault but they need a complete update to the decor that is tired and worn and they need to burn that menu and start fresh...with fresh ingredients, some flair and inspiration. Won't be ging back anytime soon unless it gets this much needed overhaul.

the food is delicious and the service was fast and courteous.The new owners are very friendly,and they do whatever they can to please. We had the chicken with rice and it melts in you're mouth. This will be my favourite restaurant from now on. It would be a good place to hold parties. They plan on renovating so that will be a nice change.

Stopped for lunch on a saturday, don't know the area very well and we like to try new places so opted to eat at the Bella Vita Restaurant in Maple Ridge.
Our food was great, served hot, including warm buns just after ordering. The portions were generous. Quality of food was also great.
However, the decor in this Bella Vita definitely needs some updating. I enjoyed the paintings on the walls, but it was dark and old feeling. The old velvet chairs with arms need to be replaced or updated. I was not comfortable during the meal so only ate part of my meal and then we decided to leave.
