Small, hidden and easy to miss, the Bella Vista Trattoria & Wine Bar gives a good dose of flavor in its food, ensuring that diners have a pleasant evening together. The cozy atmosphere in the cafŽ and the outdoor patio seating area give Bella Vista Trattoria & Wine Bar a rather intimate, casual vibe. The menu offers various daily specials and is also full of various Italian dishes that are popular such as the penne arrabbiate, gnocchi Bella Vista, fettuccini Bolognese, risotto and ravioli. There are also pizzas, steaks, salads and anti pasto that offer a mix of modern and contemporary Italian cuisines. The wine bar at the Bella Vista Trattoria & Wine Bar features a tasteful mix of martinis, bourbons, scotch whiskey (blended and single) as well as a small collection of beers too.

We waited about 45 minutes after ordering, before reminding them about our appetizer. Next thing we knew, the main course was arriving, and the appetizer came out soon after (and it was the wrong one). The folks around us seemed to have worse experiences, with one couple announcing they were leaving after an hour of waiting for drinks, and another nearby asking repeatedly about their caesar salad which took over an hour to come from the kitchen. It was not a romantic and quiet evening for anyone in the restaurant. I felt bad for the workers because the servers seemed to be trying their best but the kitchen was extremely slow and disorganized. It must be a bad feeling when you notice your patrons are starting to look around and commiserate with other tables about how long the wait has been.

My friend and I were there for a special occasion so we ordered the best bottle of bubbles on the menu $90. Not available. So we ordered the only other bubbles, a Prosecco at $30. Not available. So we settled on a cheap bottle of Chardonnay. The only one. Ordered salads: mixed green salad turned out to be a spinach salad with a few other lettuce leaves thrown in. Many greens looked wilted so this salad was not very fresh. We both had a seafood fettuccine which was very ordinary but a very large portion with an empty lobster tail casing thrown on top for decoration. I would not recommend this place as there are many other good Italian restaurants located nearby.

The margherita pizza was a crappy cheese pizza and the meatballs tasted like plain ground beef. The cocktails were good though (and inexpensive). It took us about a half hour to try to get our bills.

I ordered a vegetarian Risotto and the portion was very small, my husband mentioned to the waiter and they gave us a complimentary dessert for that without asking for anything so is a nice gesture from the restaurant. I didn't like the female washrooms, smelly and dirty.

The reason for four stars was that the service did take a bit long, which was surprising as the restaurant was quite empty. If you have lots of time, it would be no trouble at all, but in our case we then had to rush to make it to a show. Overall, great meal and we would definitely go back!

Asked for the bill when desert was dropped off then, had to walk our own bill up as our waiter was sitting at another table talking. Taste did not make up for the poor service.

They were more than happy to accommodate me and switch it to a tomato-basil sauce as I have some food allergies. My husband had the salmon which came in a dill sauce that was also very delicious. The house-made tirimisu was also incredibly delicious along with our cappuccinos. Everything was perfect- service, ambiance, music selection. Would recommend Bella Vista to anyone looking to eat on College Street, and to anyone looking for an Italian restaurant in the city!

Roberto was an incredible server with jokes to boot! Our meals ranged from homemade pastas to a seafood plate with lobster tails - all incredible. Patrick served amazing cocktails and kept the wine flowing :) Thank you again for such a fantastic dining experience, it was the perfect beginning to a great evening.

Had my in-laws over from Austria and they fell in love with this restaurant, and they aren't Italian. Roberto (our waiter) made everything so special for us. Food and service were 5 stars out of 5. My husband and I will come again for the Seafood Linguini and Vegetarian Butternut Squash Ravioli. All in all one of our new favaourite places to eat in the heart of Little Italy.
