Nice food, kind-of-friendly, but the person at the entrance (Italian bar tender?) Is not friendly edging on arrogance. It is surprising as the restaurant offers a great decor and good food and the experience could be better. We just moved to the place. We are testing the restaurants in the area and good, frienly service is a plus. Not sure we want to go back...

Bello Vista is a chic neighborhood restaurant that serves up above averaged Italian dishes. They have a large selection of Italian wines and one can have a few of them by the glass. I had their past Bolognese, which I think is always simple test to see if an Italian restaurant passes muster, and it was well made and tasteful. What adds to the experience here is their outside seating.

For many years Bella Vista is my favorite restaurant for Italian food. Being served by the owner is, off course, a big plus.
They serve nice Italian wines.
The prices are moderate and for dinner you better make a reservation.
Prices are moderate.

I Live here, so I know the neighbourhood, unless you like frozen style pizzas and plain escalopes do not go there, there are at least 2 much better italian places less than 3 minutes walking distance away....

Big disappointment, especially it looks nice on the outside, but sub par food ...

Authentic Italian place (to the extent that the waiters don't speak Dutch) and really excellent food, but let down by very sloppy service. Improve that and it could be 5/5.
