the pasta portions were large, but had little to no taste (I had the pasta with clams in a white sauce). The other entrees at my table were penne with vodka sauce, it had some nice flavoring and chicken parm....nothing to write home about. Waitress could not seemed bothered...and why should she, the tip is added on the bill...

We ordered 2 pasta dishes (alfredo w/ chicken & Spaghetti w/eggplant) as well as 1 small pizza with three toppings and two diet cokes. We were asked if we wanted a refill on the diet cokes and one person said yes. We were charged another $2.95. So we were charged a total of $8.85 for three small glasses of Diet Coke. One person had water and waiter did not even refill that glass. So for the three dishes (pizza was pretty good/pasta dishes medicore) we were charged $70.55! This was before taxes. We were then charged a total of $89.52. This included tax and a surcharge. On top of that they expected gratuity. The service was not good, way overpriced. Food was not worth it. I will never go there again and do not recommend it.

I love Bella Vita. Have been there many times, and the food is always good, and we always get in fairly quick, if not quickly, even though it is crowded. The service is fast which is what you want if you are going to the theatre, or if you are starving after walking around NYC all day. The ceasar salad is great, along with the garlic knots and the spaghetti/meatballs and pizza. If you eat here once, you want to go back!

Ate here on our first night in NYC & loved it! A tad expensive but well worth it! Stopping by for another meal before we leave!

I am a pizza lover and have tried many pizzas in NYC...this is by far one of the best. The sauce is amazing. The cheese is creamy. Overall the pizza is just delicious. The restaurant is tiny and the service is just ok. But the pizza is worth it. The Bella Mista salad is awesome too. And huge.

The only pizza place in the city with a security guard at the door. What does that tell you? The food is good but there's nothing special here worth the prices they charge and there's a distasteful sense of moneygrubbing. A small pie with toppings and drink will cost you $35 to $40. Toppings on half a pie or whole pie get charged the same price. You're not allowed to sit at a table if you're ordering slices. The tables are for entrees and whole pies. Sit on the stool in the corner and eat your slice. This will be made clear to you from the waitresses stone cold look more than the explanation that accompanying it. Don't blame the waitresses. They're not allowed to sit at a table when they're eating food from the kitchen on their lunch break. They have to eat standing up in the back. Ordering entrees or a whole pie? No special requests. Take your food the way we serve it. There's a security camera behind you while you're eating. Too many tables in a small place cramped together so that people can't move in between them. It is also a tourist trap. You won't find any self-respecting New Yorker here. The only thing that's decent is the food. The rest is oddly bad enough that it affects your experience here.

Good salad, great pizza (esp. the crust). reasonably priced, fast service, great location.
