We had been to Bella Vita once before, and thought it was nice but not the equal of Carmella's a few miles west. But we decided to try it again when we got a Groupon discount. Our entrees were really good, but the pumpkin gelato we ordered for dessert was a huge disappointment and a waste of 8 bucks (for two). It was nearly solid, and with lots of ice crystals, which shows that this place does not know to make and/or store gelato. ANY gelato lover knows that gelato should have a frozen yogurt texture, and should be significantly warmer throughout the making and storing process than ice cream. Shame on an allegedly Italian restaurant for not knowing this! When we informed our waiter of the problem, he just grinned like a fool. We should not have even been charged for it. (BTW, much better gelato is available a couple of blocks away at Aspen, although I don't think it is open in the evening.)
