When you go to eat at Bella Vita, don't be put off by the location. It is in an unremarkable strip mall on an older Wichita street. When you step inside, you will see that it is not limited by its location. The restaurant is beautiful. It's got low lighting and is well-decorated. It's the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion. The chef is also a talented singer, and will sing an appropriate song to patrons depending on whether they're celebrating a birthday, anniversary, etc.

The food is Italian with a French fusion twist. Their puttanesca is delicious, but they had some chicken dish with green apples that I couldn't get enough of. Bella Vita can go up against any of Wichita's best known fine dining spots.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, especially in consideration of their unassuming location. The taste, quality and presentation were superb. Prices for the beer, appetizers and entrees were very reasonable but be prepared for "Upcharges". Going from baked potato to pasta: UPCHARGE. Pasta with meat sauce: UPCHARGE. Wine prices are pretty high and the first glass ordered was from a bottle that had 'turned' but was cheerfully replaced. Bottom Line? We'll return at our first opportunity!

First time diners may feel somewhat apprehensive when pulling up to this restaurant, located in an unassuming strip mall in west Wichita, but once you walk in the door, it's a different world. The chef here specializes in northern Italian and French cuisine, and everything on the menu that we'eve ever tried is really exceptional -- from the salads to entrees to the desserts. The atmosphere is perfect -- very comfortable with intimate table lighting. The service has always been friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive without being a nuisance. It's not a large restaurant, so be sure to make reservations for evening dining.
