We really enjoyed our dinner here. The house reserve red was excellent. We ate inside
However there was outside seating. We enjoyed the presentation and the service. It
Is close to the Hilton and there is lots of street action in the area.

Recommended by Hilton concierge, Bella Vista was a short walk from our hotel. A nice local setting with a refined interior. About 20 local folks were in the outside patio but we sat inside. The service was good and the food was great. We shared eggplant parm and a caprese pizza, a bottle of wine and great tiramisu. Excellent food for the price, with a festive atmosphere when Holland beat Mexico in the soccer match.
We'll go back the next time we're in Amsterdam.

I visited this restaurant over a year ago and gave them a 5 rating. Maybe, the chef was too preoccupied with the Italians playing in the World Cup, that he wasn't concerned with the food that he was sending out to his patrons. Both meat dishes were swimming in sauce. My wife's was in a red wine sauce that was gelatinous and my steak and pepper sauce was like eating a steak in pepper cream soup. Sauce is one thing, but to have a dish swimming in it is uncalled for. Service is good and attentive. For the prices they charge, you would expect more. If you want a really great Italian meal, try Restaurant Classico nearby.

We were recommended by the Hilton Amsterdam and a couple of locals. We ordered the grilled steak and spaghetti Marinara. I must say it was very bland, no salt or pepper was offered, and the overall experience was poor.

I can highly recommend the Bella Vista in Amsterdam. It is a good walk from the RAI Convention Center and close to the Hilton. I had the Caprese Salad and The Spaghetti Vongole both very good. The owner is obviously Italian and I think it is a family business. You can tell there was a lot of attention to detail and they care about the food. Nice wine and lovely decor added to a lovely leisurely lunch.
