Our daughter's group of friends booked a private room for about 100 people. Each family was able to pay their own way. The food was served buffet style and was delish! Atmosphere was great too.

I can always count on Bella VIa for a good Italian meal. The chicken penne pasta and minestrone soup are always satisfying. The veggie lasagna is a big hit with friends who are vegetarian... or not. I am confident when I recommend Bella Via to...More

The restaurant is dark and looks a bit tired. On the other hand, the staff work hard and aim to please. Out of four entrees sampled, the grilled salmon was delicious and the sausage and peppers were good but overcooked. The chicken marsala was dried...More
