Bella Via Ristorante and Banquets
Need to book at 7:00 PM?Other great restaurants with availability.
Food was good. Server rushed our order because they had “a party of 180 in the back.”
tasty food, good portions, very good service, good value, but you need to provide very fresh bread with the meal.
They put us n the noisy banquet room. Tables were patio furniture with double table cloth to hide holes. Was with business client and was embarrassing.
It was fine, nothing special really. The food was pretty good, but we won't be returning because we don't think it's a good value.
Came for I’m Beyonce and was seated in the back and a banquet room that had no ambience. Disappointing
Bella Via offers a great experience for anyone looking to get some good Italian food in a nice, quiet setting. Unlike other overcrowded, loud Italian restaurants, Bella Via made me feel welcome and comfortable. Food was great and prices were fair. Would recommend!
Love the warm welcome when we arrived. Food was perfect and delicious. Service was great. Good price point and value. Love the background music. Looking forward to our next meal there.
Great place, great food, service impeccable.
Just great food
One of our go to places
Just yummy and easy and
Food was exceptional, wait staff very nice but a little too attentive. In the grand scheme of things, I’d much rather it be this way than the opposite. Downside of the meal, the wine is pricey for a mediocre bottle. Still had a glass, though 😄
Food was really bland. I ordered a salad with grilled salmon.
My salmon was over cooked. It was really dry. I told my server about it and he explained us how to eat salmon.
He said “this is the safety way to eat it and it’s how they eat in Europe.” Obviously he was European. At the end was removed from my bill.
My date ordered the veal special, it was ok, but nothing special.
The interior was really chilly and noise level was ok.
If we come back to this place, definitely not. If I recommend this place no.
Food was outstanding as always.
Great food, great service! We’ll be back!!!!
Great food perfect
Just ok. Always want to take you to worst table available. Tiresome. Food average and expensive. We don’t go often. Thought we’d try again after a 5 year hiatus. Same.
This was our first time back after my last booking through Open Table - I’m very happy to report that the restaurant seemed to have taken my constructive criticism from last time and improved service tremendously, with new and very attentive wait staff. Attention was paid to details, service was offered with energy and smiles, and the food tasted great. Unlike last time, all the glassware, cutlery, and plates were clean, and the entire meal was fun and tasty. We had dessert too - smth we only do if we have had a relaxing dining experience overall. The menu offerings were varied and well thought out. We will be back, and gladly! I know this is a long-standing establishment in the area, but nothing about it felt jaded or boring. Well done!
The food was great And so was the service!
Waiter was slow
My husband and I have been to Bella Via restaurant on many occasions. We live in
Highland Park and the restaurant is not far from our house. We made a reservation
for New Year's Eve on open table.
Sorry to say, while it was an early dinner New Years Eve, service was very rushed and food was less than expected. Our waiter gave us no time to relax, review menu, or enjoy our before-dinner glass of wine. My pistachio crusted baked salmon was over-cooked and dry, arugula salad surrounding salmon was only mediocre. My friend’s chicken parmigiana was average but abundant. I have dined al fresco at Bella Via-much better experience. I would not return based upon this experience.
Everything our group ordered was absolutely delicious. Service was outstanding, very attentive without hovering. We will be back often.
excellence food and wine. atmosphere was excellent
Great home made pasta. Good service food was great
Food and service was outstanding
So delicious! We had veal special, beef short rib raviolis and spaghetti bolognese...perfect as usual!
Great attentive service and really good food. Tables are a bit close.
Good food. Service was prompt except they forgot to bring our appetizer. When we pointed this out they brought it later in the meal at no charge. Other than this one mix up we felt the service was very good
Very nice menu and prices. A little noisy, but otherwise great.
The food is excellent and for a reasonable price. The staff is friendly and has a positive helpful attitude.
Delightful experience! Food was delicious only to be outdone by the attentive service of our waitress. Noise levels do becomea bit intense when the dining room is full.
Excellent arrabiata penne and putanesca linguini. Minestrone and Italian sausage also delicious. Great price form the quality and quantity of food.
I cannot adequately describe how amazing the service was. Miguel was our server and he was incredibly kind. The food was great
Maybe it was the fire alarm which had no reaction from the staff...the servers seemed like it didn’t matter if we were there or not... the food was ok but I don’t feel like I need to rush back
The service and food are very good.
My husband and I like to share the main entre
They split it for us
Food is always consistently good. Service is very good. Excellent neighborhood restaurant.
Food was excellent! Servers were so accommodating . Moved our table to accommodate an infant and give us more space. We brought people who had never been there before and they said they would surely come back.
Service was fast and food was good
Wonderful food and service. Our go-to place.
One of our regular spots. Always great food and friendly service.
