Bella Via has been serving the best pizza in Long island City for the better part of ten years and helped lead the quality food invasion to this district. The salads, including an excellent beet and apple salad, the soups and pastas are almost as good as the pizza. The classic Pizza Margherita is first rate and we especially like the Bella Via pizza, a white pizza with sausage and broccoli rabe. And, the restaurant introduced us tothe truly excellent Menebrea beer from Italy. All of this is served by an efficient and friendly staff. A must visit--again and again.

I rarely write reviews but this pizza is unappetizing and exceptionally overpriced. First of all, the pizza was totally soggy. The crust was pretty much mush, and it was sagging so badly that you could hardly take the pizza off the pan to put it on your plate and it couldn't hold the toppings up. It was lukewarm, if that. To make matters worse, it's $2.50 per topping... $2.50 for a few pepperonis or a few pieces of pepper or something? I mean seriously? And that's PER TOPPING. If you want pepperoni and mushroom, that'll be $5. It's not like they were piling them on there either. I think I got maybe 2-3 pepperonis per (rather large) slice, if that. The weirdest part of the entire thing? If you get the topping on only half of the pizza, you still get charged the same as if you had it on the full thing, even though it's only half as much topping. In what universe does that make even the most remote bit of sense? If you and a friend split a pizza and want different toppings - say 2 on one half and 2 on the other, plan on spending $10 on toppings alone. Save your time and your money and go get a $1 slice from one of those places on the corner. It's infinitely better. I won't be back.
