Whenever we want a special dinner out, Bella Vita is the place we go. It is small, intimate, and very personal. (You might want to make a reservation -- it may not be necessary, but it would save you from being disappointed). The least expensive item on the men;u -- spaghetti with meat sauce -- is very good, but if... More

I had read how this was supposed to be one of the best restaurants in Wichita, but when we pulled into this strip mall, I began to wonder????? We carefully opened to door to find a beautiful little Italian restaurant with a great staff and even greater food. This was a highlight of our three days in Wichita.

We selected this Italian restaurant because of reviews on a web site. Those reviews caused us to believe this would be more than ordinary. Perhaps if we'd ordered differently, our meals would cause a better rating. Spaghetti and fettuccine were what we ordered off of a fairly comprehensive menu. The spaghetti was dry because of too little sauce, meat ball... More

Dinner service was great. Food was excellent. Smaller, more personal restaurants are great for conversation and leisurely spending an evening with friends. Put this one on your list to try. And have their lasagna! It's a white cheese sauce rather than the tomato sauce variety and it is delicious! Their onion soup is one of the best I've had!

...we felt like the kitchen was slow. We visited on a Friday night at about 8:15. We ordered fried mozzarella which was delicious, and entrees...and it took about 50 minutes to get our entrees! Now, the Chicken Bistro & the Chicken Bella Vita were excellent, but it seemed like we waited a long time. Our waiter kept saying, "it's almost... More

This is an especially good Italian restaurant in the nation's heartland. When you drive up to this modest strip mall, the ambiance (or lack of ambiance) belies the quality of the food. Pasta is very good. Try the Vodka Tortellini. The hot home-baked Italian bread could be a meal alone. Then there's the tiramisu. A few years ago while traveling... More

I was in Wichita overnight at the Hampton Inn off of Kellogg. When it came time to look for a place to eat dinner. At first glance, there isn't many options outside of fast food and chain restaurants. A quick online search, and Bella Vita came up. Like other reviewers have said, you should not judge a book by it's... More
