Table for two yet again........ Food and menu excellent! Prices good too. Friendly, fast service.
Good to book in advance.......Good for couples or family or friends gathering together to sample superb Italian cuisine. Great prices,generous portions and hard to beat this restaurant for all round value......give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

We arrived at a very busy lunch time without a reservation, however a table was made available for us. The lunchtime menu was good value and most of the food was good. My chicken skewers with spicy sauce were served with chips and it wasn't possible to change this to rice even although one of the other dishes on the lunch menu was served with rice. I thought this was very odd. The waiter did offer to serve it with rice eventually but said there would be a charge to do this! Disappointing! Although my chicken was lovely it was completely spoiled by being absolutely smothered in a horrible strong tomato flavoured sauce which I couldn't eat. The two people I was with enjoyed their food though, so perhaps just my taste! Good pleasant service from the waiting staff. I will return to this restaurant and am happy to give it another chance though will try the a la carte menu next time fir more variety/flexibility.

This is now our fourth visit to Bella Vita and as the title of my review says it's just as good now as it was on our very first visit. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at this wee gem of a restaurant and the service you get is second too none. It still amazes me how they manage to produce such high quality food for the prices they charge, just check out their 2 course lunchtime menu at £5.95 with tea or coffee !!!!! All my visits have been with my family and we chose from the A La Carte menu which was an absolute steal. I am looking forward to taking some friends here from my old home town as they were in the hospitality trade themselves and appreciate well prepared and delicious food such as this. I apologise that even after my fourth visit I still don't know any of the staffs names but I would just like to thank you for the good work that you all do and I look forward to seeing you all again soon.

I booked Bella Vita for my daughters 18th birthday, from the moment we arrived we were looked after by David the Manager. The food was fantastic & great portions too. The restaurant was busy & there was just a great atmosphere about the place. I would highly recommend Bella Vita to my friends & family, great food at reasonable prices . Thank you Nimmo,David & all the staff.
