Stopped in for a nice meal after the movies. Nice , warm environment with friendly help. The cavatelli and broccoli was tasty and generous portion. The Margherite pizza was fresh and crisp. Nice fresh mozzarella , plum tomatoes and basil leaves were yummy!

Lovely setting for the recent retirement party we had for a colleague. The food was fantastic. Services was very attentive and unobtrusive during the speeches. A delightful evening with homemade tastes and a warm atmosphere.

We were in a party of 16 in the back room. Pleasant atmosphere, casual attire and excellent service. We were all served in a timely manner. Food was hot and plentiful. Having been to this place before I found the food to be much improved this time. I would come again.

All of my eating experiences from La Bella Via have been delivery orders. The food is good and at a great price! At times, the delivery is a little slow, but the large portions and tasty grub make up for it.
