Our reservation was not respected and reception was totally chaotic. Manager/owner seemed totally overwhelmed and even nasty. Tables around us were left uncleaned. There were not sufficient personnel. My pasta (mushrooms) was overcooked. Special thanks to Michael who tried to make his best despite the...total mess.More

Ciao I sincerely apologize that your experience at Bella Vita it’s up to your expectations. As with every business in the United States, we are extremely short on personnel, and even offering $ 100 signing bonus to get additional personnel. Does not entice personnel to...More

As usual, the food and service @ Bella Vita was outstanding. We are locals. live 2 miles away, so we eat there often. The food is great and we don't have to worry about the weekend congestion in town when the tourists all show up,...so it is a good choice on a Friday or Saturday.More

The number of good reviews on here is perplexing, unless the credit is going to the ambience. The outdoor patio area is really nice - and the service was just fine. The food was really underwhelming. I ordered the clam and lemon pasta with GF...pasta and not only was the portion tiny, but it was a sad excuse for GF pasta - very watery and almost like it was boiled in leftover water. A sun-par entree with 10 bites for $30 is not cutting it. The caprese salad was ok but nothing to write home about. Salad + pasta + one glass of wine and tip = $70, for the least impressive meal of my trip with a high price tag. The restaurant does have regular availability as compared to other restaurants in Sedona but there’s likely a reason for this. Also nobody that worked there - servers included - were wearing masks. An unsettling atmosphere in food service.More

My wife and I ate dinner there on Mother’s Day while visiting Sedona. Service was very good as was the food. Portions were generous. The Spumoni Bombé for dessert was outstanding. Prices are not cheap so be aware.

I read some mixed reviews but we took a chance and had a great meal. Our reservation was early - 5 pm - so we got right in and were offered inside or outside seating. We chose to sit outside. The restaurant is in a...resort so we could hear families with kids nearby (a pool?) but the noise wasn't bad. The service was great! Fresh bread with dipping oil was brought to the table. We ordered a charcuterie antipasto tray which had wonderful meats, cheese and olives. We split a Caesar salad with real anchovies which was plenty for two people. And we planned to split an entree of Bocca di Mare (prosciutto and cheese cooked with scallops). The waitress said for an extra $5 charge they would split it in the kitchen and give us some extra of the sides - pasta and vegetables. We did that and it was plenty of food. Everything was well-prepared and tasty. The only negative was that some of the cushions in the outside seating area were worn and had some tears. We would definitely return and eat here again.More

It is Always such a pleasure to visit Bella Vita!! The food just gets Better and Better.. The Salmon was the sweetest taste.. so clearly organic and finely seasoned... melted in my mouth. If I could make vegetables as good I would eat them every...day. The Creme Brulee' (spelling?) was Fabulous and the Service, Superb. I'll be back for my birthday in July, for sure. Just Awesome!!!!More

Michael provided excellent service and our meal was fantastic! Shrimp cocktail, spinach salad and chicken parm were all really well prepared. Love the bread and dipping oil, too! Nice ambiance, as well. Best Italian food!

Our anniversary was perfect with our Italian meal served by Neal. The antipasto meat tray, olive oil dipping with focaccia bread, lemon capers with chicken and the pasta primavera were excellent. The dark chocolate covered ice cream with coffee and port was worth the check.

We ordered the sausage and peppers to go. It was very delicious. This is a small place and a favorite of the guests at Sedona Pines. They have specials a couple of nights and every night early bird meals. Best to go at 4 pm...happy hour and have dinner at 5. Otherwise take out is a good idea.More
