Let me start with the positives...the staff was super friendly and our waitress Brandy provided first class service and was really attentive. The building itself is in need of an update as it's very outdated, but that doesn't bother me. It's all about the food with me. I ordered the bowtie pasta with a tomato cream sauce. The pasta was...

A little dated and a little pricey but the food was very good and the staff very friendly, The entrance was a little shabby but the bar area and dining room were fine.

Friendly staff and the food is always delicious! I highly recommend trying the shrimp and tortellini appetizer and the beef tenderloins in green peppercorn sauce as an entree.

The owners have taken this restaurants to new heights. The old Love Inn had good food but tended to get a little wild. This place has top notch food and great service. Don't pass through Little Falls without stopping here for a meal. Men should wear a collared shirt The owners have done a great honor to the original owners... More

My new husband introduced me to the Bella Vista fifteen years ago and it was love at first bite! I am originally from Boston and had lived in the area for twenty years without finding a restaurant of the quality I was accustomed to. I love the friendly atmosphere coupled with superior food and service. If not enticed by one... More

Recently dined here and had a great steak. Side dish of their fresh pasta. Homemade potato chips at the bar. The roasted red peppers are to die for.

Bella Vista is a family owned restaurant with beautiful views of a ski mountain which is no longer operating. It is a shame this ski area is no longer open. As for the restaurant, their Dolmonico steaks are cooked to perfection and tender and tasty! A special appetizer was offered the other evening, fresh squash ravioli . Yum! Their bar... More

Very nice people, great food. Atmosphere is very homey as it is in a house. There is a small bar if you need to wait for a table or to have a drink after dinner.
