Bella Vita is now Lakehouse at Geist. New owner, new look, revised menu. They have added some great new outdoor space. We ate there last night and ate out in the patio despite the below zero temps. Huge fire pit and heaters keep it warm...More

30 minutes to get water. Food came out at random, after 90 minutes my wife still had no pizza. The food is good, but pricey. The music is too loud. There are too many good alternatives in this town. Never again!

This place is now called "Lake House". Appears to be under new management. Had a great time sitting on the deck. Treated very nice by all the staff. Will return for sure!

My wife, daughter and son-in-law ate her last Sunday evening. The food was spot on. Everything was great. I read the reviews here and somewhat hesitant, but my daughter assured me it was good. Some of the reviews are from the summer when the establishment...More

I had not returned to this restaurant since the ownership changed. I avoided it during the previous ownership because on several occasions we were not greeted upon arrival, and service was not good. But I'm so happy to return this past Saturday night. I had...More

This restaurant is not central but, due to some boundary history, has an Indianapolis address. It is worth the drive to a pretty marina setting with views which are particularly pleasant at dusk. We sat in a conservatory area with a fire in spite of...More
