If you want to listen to one of the most talented female jazz guitarists in NYC during the weekend brunch, you need to visit La Bella Via on Saturday. There is no better beginning of the weekend that having Bloody Mary or prosecco along with delicious pancakes, oatmeal porridge with figs or my favorite brunch pizza with egg and Brussel... More

Food choices are many, primarily Italian, tasty and not that expensive. The staff are friendly and service is fast. This restaurant, according to locals is the best wood oven pizza spot and I have to say that their pizzas are really, really good. But you can't go wrong with sea-food and pasta choices. Everything we tried was very tasty, portions... More

This place has a different type of red tomato sauce for seafood pasta. Whatever that is, it's excellent. I like the black linguini from here. They also carry own chili flakes that could come from the backyard, how cool is that. It's like they can read my mind that I'm a spice queen. Hubby and I came here for dinner.... More

The menu was not the same old Italian. My choice was delicious, and others thought so too. The wine cost was very reasonable.

Based on reviews it sounded to my wife and I like Bella Via is known for its pizza, but I think that understates this restaurants charm. Sure, the pizza is coal-fired in an oven - nice and crispy. But, the pasta dishes were quite good too. Moreover, the salad with pear and walnut was fresh and tasty and the appetizer... More

I was first introduced to Coal Fired pizza while a family member was attending Yale. Sal has the real deal and his authentic NYC restaurant is a fantastic gem in LIC!
