“Delicious! ”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 via mobile

My husband started taking me to Bella Via two years ago after we moved along the lakefront and many of his friends suggested dining here. Every visit has confirmed the last pleasant experience from the all around wonderful service and amazing food every time.

Our past visit we brought my mother and father in law for my mother inlaws birthday. We brought our two year old as well. The service was excellent. Drinks wonderful. Appetizers tasty to the last morsel. Dinners delicious. And dessert to write home about! Everything was superb and we couldn't have asked for a more wonderful dinner for her.

On past occasions my husband and I often order an appetizer and have a drink and wait a bit to order. Their servers are always fantastic and attentive and almost seem to know just the right moment to approach. Everything we've ever ordered off the menu is fantastic. Most desserts are house made and their tiramisu is splendid!

Highly recommend dining here. It's a wonderful place.

“Baffling Service, Great Food, still haven't received the Salad!”
Reviewed 7 September 2013 via mobile

Had reservations, thought we would have a cocktail before being seated. We were the only two sitting at the bar and none of the wait staff would even make eye contact, let alone take a drink order. We then had our appetizers come out at the same time as entrees, and they skipped our salads entirely. Waiter did not revisit the table until he broight our check. When we said that our salads were never served, he shrugged and said to have a nice evening. My wife and I a quiet laugh together. The pasta was terrific but the service is a head-scratcher. This was our date night away from our 4 sons, so we look forward to a great overall experience.

“Nice mid-price restaurant”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

WE have gone to Bella Via many times in the last 5 months and have found that the service, the drinks and food are well above average.

Whether eating inside our outside, we have enjoyed everything
