After exploring the winding alleys of Ostuni we had lunch at Il Bellavista. They start serving lunch at 12.30 and if you get there at this time you can have a great table with, as the title suggests, a bella vista across the open countryside to the sea. The food as well as the view was fabulous. Inside the old... More

Nice location, we got a table in the bustling pedestrian street outside the restaurant. We order tuna steak, tuna tartare and octopus salad. Very tasty but the portions were really small. Also there were 6 lemon pips in my tartare, not nice. Service was ok but could smile more. Overpriced

A lovely position and the interior is amazing. Food nicely presented. However, as this is a tourist trap restaurant it has its minus points - especially as the waiter rolled his eyes at me - good customer service isn't important when you can fill your table three times over during high season. Also, the menu said my meal included chips... More

Visited for dinner last night and was suitably impressed, Il Bellavista has earned a place in our favourite restaurants list. As previous reviewers have mentioned, the location offers fantastic views and the street side location of the al fresco dining area makes it a great spot for people watching whilst enjoying a bottle of prosecco. My wife (who is vegetarian)... More

Great outdoor dining, lovely pizza and good service. The pizza was very nice and the location was ideal for people watching and enjoying al fresco dining.

Instead of taking the time for the guests, all of the waiters were running around like crazy people. Seems to me they were only interested in serving as many people as possible. Nobody of the staff had a smile and we did not feel welcome. We had to wait really long for our food and when it came it didn't... More

We dined here on a Saturday night, but didn't have a booking. We were luckily to get one of the 2 remaining tables. After we were seated, other groups started to arrive and wait around for a table. As the place is large, it didn't seem to be too much of a wait was tables were turning over quite often.... More

Had pizza at Il Bellavista - outdoor dining location, fantastic view and excellent service made it well worthwhile. Pizza was fine and good value. Would recommend.

Amongst Ostuni's pizzeries the Bellavista stands out from the crowd as it's housed in an hypogeal oil mil dating back to the year 1500. The home-made preparation respects the authentic Neapolitan tradition for pizza making as a STG ( guaranteed as Traditional Speciality) product. Furthermore, over and above the set menù, we make other dishes available to diners should they have special wishes or eating issues.
