    Don't try to seat yourself!

    My friends and I went there for lunch one day and it looked fairly packed. I jumped at the opportunity once a table opened up but got scolded by the waitress when we went to seat ourselves in the ONLY table open in the restaurant. The water was brought over quick but the food took a long time and since we were starving it seemed like an eternity. We ordered garlic knots to try and hold us over till the food came but they arrived after our sandwiches. The paninis are good and the dressing on the side salad was awesome, but total experience wasn't enough to bring me back.

    Great pizza & pasta - best option!

    I was in NYC during the past 2 weeks and a friend of mine suggested this place. I was with a friend there and we did not know the city well. And we still do not know because we had dinner there 5 times during the 10 days we spent in NYC.. The Manager and his sfaff were so polite, prices are fair and the food...well...in my opinion, was the best from the restaurants we have visited!! Congratulations to them! You should try the peperoni pizza or the meatballs & spaghetti with fresh tomatoes sauce...I will certainly visit them again next time in NY!!

    Simply the best pizza I've ever tasted!

    There's pizza and then there's Bella Vista's delicious thin crust pizza. Made with the freshest ingredients perfectly prepared and served by the slice on a china plate. Simply the best pizza I've ever tasted! The premises are prestine and offer a warm and inviting atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and attentive. I stop in regularly on my way from work to my weekly drum lessons for a slice or two and a coke. Since I found this place about a year ago I haven't had pizza anywhere else. They have set the benchmark so high!

    Slow service, delicious food, warm staff

    My family and I stopped in for pizza on the recommendation of one of NY's finest (it was a long time since I had a pie in my home town). Two waitresses and the manager, maybe six tables of customers, including ours. There seemed to be a communication breakdown between the manager and the wait staff; we waited about 10 minutes for menus. Then we waited another 10 minutes after closing our menus and noticed the manager taking an order from customers seated next to us that arrived well after we did. I had to almost grab the manager as he turned away and tell him we'd had no waiter and we arrived prior to the customers who just ordered. On the positive side, we our waitress when she brought us a rather quickly prepared but delicious pizza. Her Greek warmth and eagerness to learn a bit about our visit saved the dinner experience from turning into a disappointment and greatly increased the service rating. The pizza was everything I expected from the city. Thin crust with that unique NY taste, fresh basil leaves, creamy mozzerella, hearty sauce. We finished with a freshly made canoli (the shell was lightly crispy and the sliced strawberries were a colorful and sweet touch). Mmmm, canoli. We spent half a day and $98 at the Natural History Museum, experiencing some of the finest exhibitions in the world. We rode in taxis with our eyes wide open and our knuckles occasionally white. But when anyone asked me how the NY visit was, I just close my eyes, smile, and chant, "Canoli."

    A great place to eat

    We needed a place to eat near 8th ave and 43st.. after reviewing the cretiques, we decided on Bella Vita. The food was delicious. Breading on the chicken parm, was light and tasty. The eggplant parm, was breaded lightly and covered with fresh cheese, and the sauce was loaded with Basil, not too much mind you, but perfect. The wait staff was friendly. The house wine was not too dry and not too sweet. This is a place to go and have a great meal..

    Order the fried zucchini!

    At first glance, we thought this was takeout only and stopped in for a quick slice before catching our train back to DC. Once inside we were offered a full menu and are so glad we sat down and took advantage of it. Anytime we see fried zucchini, we order it and this was the best we've ever had, bar none. It comes with a creamy yogurt dip that was amazing. The pizza is fresh and delicious, the crust is the perfect balance of crisp and chewy. We thought we'd ordered too much food, but managed to eat every bite. A great stop right off Times Square--stop by, sit down, and enjoy.

    Great pizza & pasta!

    This was the first & last place we visited in NY, and we all enjoyed the food, atmosphere and the fact we could walk here without getting blisters. I disagree with the guy who said no true new yorker would eat there - we were the only "out of town" accents I noticed and also we were moved from the freezing doorway as soon as a table became available - so for us staff were very accomodating. Would definately recommend sharing a pizza & ordering very little else - portions are huge - although the spinach ravioli & salads were too good to miss!
