I work in midtown and we're always looking for a nice place that's quick and not mobbed. I've been to this place several times and each time, have had a great experience. When they are busy (which seems to be most of the time), they are great about accomidating you. The service is great, the food is delicious (try the salads - they are GIGANTIC!), and the prices can't be beat for this area. Highly recommend it.

Yes, it is a little crowded, but that is b/c Charlie and Christian (owners, who are there daily to make sure every single thing on the menu tastes perrfet) have found the formula for a variety of delicious pizzas and entrees. I am telling you, the sauce in the best. I would argue with a straight face that the food at Bella Vita is fresher and higher quality then just about anything else in the 5 boroughs. I know, bold comment. The kitchen is WIDE OPEN, come in and watch the staff stirring the fresh sauce, cutting up fresh basil, or throwing some pies and calzones in the oven. Sit down and have a full meal, or grab a slice on the go...you will not be disappointed. Don't be fooloed by the Times Square location, this is not touristy nonsense food. If it isn't on the menu, ask for it, and I guarantee they will make whatever you want. I crave Bella Vita food an regularly brave the 43rd street mob scene to eat here. Please, enjoy!

I first want to thank the owner for such fabulous service on all of our visits (yes, more than one lol!) recently when we ate with them! Simply wonderful! We were part of a group of students and parents from Enterprise, Alabama on a Show Choir trip and we got to NYC a little late in the day and had to hurry to get food and to our show on time. We were seated at 7:00 pm and our AMAZINGLY FRESH PIZZA & PASTA & SALADS were all served, eaten, paid for & us walking out the door at 7:24! We were NOT late for our show just one block away (Mary Poppins)! It was soooo good & was just right for our budget. We didn't over-order and simply split a LARGE pizza and some pasta and noone left hungry (and we had high school kids to feed lol!) We loved it so much that we came back again & we told all our friends! We wouldn't have know about it, but I just happened to think, want to eat good? Ask a policeman? So there just happened to be an officer standing right there in Times Square and HE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED IT! And it was only about 1/2 block off Broadway if that far on 42nd street! I miss it already! Rest assured, I will tell anyone visiting that they MUST EAT HERE! Thanks again for making our trip so wonderful! Liane & Lindsey Cutts & the rest of the Enterprise Alabama Encores Show Choir!

Bella Vita is the 1st place my wife and I go when visiting NYC. The pizza is among the best we've ever tasted and their other food offerings are abosolutely fabulous! Service has always been good and the prices are right. On a trip to NYC in Sept. 07, we went on a pizza tasting hunt throughout the city and into Brooklyn where we ate at Grimaldi's Pizzera, and let me say, the pizza at Bella Vita was every bit as good as it was at the infamous Grimaldi's. Can't wait to get back to NYC and go to Bella Vita! AWESOME!!!

Jan 2007 - I was in town to see a concert with a few friends. We were hoping to eat at ESPN Zone. The lines were so long there that we would have been late to the concert. We decided to look around for another place and just by luck found Bella Vita! We had eggplant paninis and they were delicious! The pizza we saw on display looked awesome. This place has a warm friendly atmosphere. It was very clean looking and was reasonably priced! I will definitely stop back there the next time I am in the city! Try it... you'll like it!

I have never had pizza like that. It was totally fresh. It was like my mouth was alive for the first time. I couldn't believe it, I did not know pizza could taste so good. There other dishes are fantastic, too. The Fra Diavlo was out of this world. I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for really good food at a reasonable price. The service was one of the best parts of my several trips there. They are attentive, warm and make you feel like your coming over to their house for dinner, it was a real pleasure. This is a real restaurant. Do your self a favor and stop in... you will be amazed.
