Bella Vista Cucina Italiana
Sunday lunchMy 2 sisters and I met up for lunch. First, we were given a free glass of Prosecco as there was a minor confusion about our booking- actually we were totally relaxed about the confusion but the freebie was a nice touch which set the tone for an excellent dining experience. The food is fantastic with super fresh ingredients and delicious flavours. Also excellent value. I've been here a number if times and will always go back.12/05/2013 00:00:00Lovely food and chilled atmosphere.Lovely food and chilled atmosphere.

The food is simply delicious, the service efficient and the value unbelievable, specially the lunch special. Will definitely be back again and again.04/05/2013 00:00:00A First Timer Returns to BlackheathI wanted a restaurant in Blackheath where I lived when I first came to London as a 21 year old. Now, fifty years later I took my wife and family to lunch as a celebration. The service was excellent, food was lovely and the wine list was appealing but, as always in restaurants, grossly over-priced.
I will return to Blackheath again for another walk down memory lane and look forward to taking lunch at the Bella Vista.28/04/2013 00:00:00Delightful dinnerLovely food and service, lovely table in the window, very nice house red. We enjoyed our evening.26/04/2013 00:00:00Marathon weekendWe were in Blackheath for the marathon. This restaurant has very friendly staff and has a very nice interior. The menu has plenty of choice and the food was exceptional and very reasonable.20/04/2013 00:00:00Fab service and wonderfulFab service and wonderful food, we would definitely return. Really enjoyable meal out, have a look at the menu online, all of our dishes were delicious!19/04/2013 00:00:00Sunday @ BlackheathFriendly staff, good choice of food, well cooked and presented. Was not too busy at 3pm on a Sunday. Would use on a regular basis if I lived nearby.07/04/2013 00:00:00Excellent lunchHad a very nice lunch here on Saturday. Opted for the main course and glass of wine menu for £8.95, which was excellent value. Both our dishes were very tasty, they were light and didn't stuff you in the way a pasta dish usually does. We will return!06/04/2013 00:00:00Lovely family run ItalianLovely family run Italian in the heart of Blackheath. Authentic food with hearty venison ragout a delight.05/04/2013 00:00:00Great local Italian RestaurantWe visted Balla Vista for dinner on a busy Friday evening. The menu choice is varied with excellent specials offered daily. The service was attentive & waiters knowledgeable on the food on offer. We enjoyed a variety of dishes including excellent crostini starters, main courses of liver, mushroom risotto, sirloin strips (special of the day) & fish pasta. The portions were generous & greatly enjoyed judging by the empty plates! This is a favourite local restaurant for our family as the ambience is always welcoming from all the staff.05/04/2013 00:00:00Excellent Italian restaurantThis is my favourite Italian restaurant in Blackheath. We have been there several times and we have never been disappointed. The menu is interesting with a good choice of wines, and the food is well prepared. The atmosphere is friendly and the service is efficent and friendly too.05/04/2013 00:00:00The Food gets better and betterThe whole starters menu is so good it's almost impossible to choose. For mains we had the belly pork and the veal both of which were delicious. The side dishes were great but too big to finish. For desert the panacotta... what can I say, simply the best31/03/2013 00:00:00Local gemI almost don't want to revue Bella Vista as its just right for our needs. Friendly, warm, comforting AND good food.24/03/2013 00:00:00Two Visits recentlyOne early bird, excellent value for money, second one, more expensive but food was very good,
particularly main course fish which the 3 of us had. 3 courses, coffee and soft drink each plus service £99.
Staff very attentive. will be back again.22/03/2013 00:00:00High quality in BlackheathWe only really booked this restaurant because of the limited availability in our usual choice of restaurants in Chislehurst/ Bromley but were very pleasantly surprised. There was a good choice and the food was interesting, of a high quality, and was particularly well presented.09/03/2013 00:00:00Great food, great nightWe dined here for my daughter's 21st birthday celebration. The food was excellent as was the service. I would not hesitate to recommend dining here.04/03/2013 00:00:00Excellent Again!This was my 4th visit to Bella Vista and yet again I really enjoyed the experience. The menu is pretty much the same as on my first visit but I have always managed to find something that I like. I went for Sardines to start, followed by the crab pasta and ice cream with coffee to finish. A good ambiance and good service and in the heart of Blackheath. I will return.06/02/2013 00:00:00Fantastic FindReally glad we've found this place, will definitely be going back! Great atmosphere, delicious food and fantastic service. Our apologies to the staff for being the last to leave - we were enjoying ourselves so much and felt so comfortable that we didn't even notice! Thanks for a lovely evening.30/01/2013 16:00:00Again avery good lunchHad an excellent Sunday lunch. The staff were very attentive, without being over powering. Our son's children's meal was finished off 100% (a good sign). We thoroughly enjoyed the starters, and main courses with excellent deserts. We feel that it was good value because we did not waste anything, but did not feel as if we had over eaten. Good job by all staff, well done! We will return.19/01/2013 16:00:00brilliant as everAlways great value. Plenty of choice. A very comfortable setting. Staff are welcoming, but never hassle you.12/01/2013 16:00:00A perfect lunch!This was the first time I had visited the Bella Vista for a weekend lunch with friends and I cannot fault the food or service. The menu choice was excellent and varied and the staff attentive and helpful but not intrusive. The food was superb and obviously freshly cooked - excellent value for money in very pleasant surroundings.If I have one slight gripe it is that the 'background' music was a little too loud but I am sure that if I had mentioned it at the time my concerns would have been dealt with courteously.11/01/2013 16:00:00We went to the Bella VistaWe went to the Bella Vista for New Years Eve with my sister and brother-in-law. The food was excellent and the party atmosphere and dancing until 2.00am made it a New Years Eve to remember. We all had a very enjoyable evening.30/12/2012 16:00:00Good Food, good serviceAs always the food was excellent with good service, we had a slight issue however this was rectified quickly.29/12/2012 16:00:00Fantastic food and fantasticFantastic food and fantastic service. Amazing as always.28/12/2012 16:00:00Bella Vista BlackheathWe love this restaurant, as it serves hearty Italian food that is cooked and served with finesse. You feel like you could have had a rustic fine dining experience, the flavours are intense and authentic and the service is very natural and friendly. The lunch and dinner menus that the place offers are also good value but the a la carte is not too expensive either. Really good food and a nice setting, Blackheath is lovely for a stroll before dinner and the restaurant has a 30's feel to it. We had winter veg soup/ burrata to start - both fantastic! And for main the venison pappardelle was amazing. The tiramisu is not to be missed!18/11/2012 00:00:00Wow! We had an absolutelyWow! We had an absolutely DELICIOUS meal here - really excellent food from a menu from which it's almost impossible to choose as everything sounds gorgeous.
The butternut squash ravioli was absolutely sublime, as was my sea bass. Lovely service, great coffee and delightful setting. Sadly, we didn't have room for dessert. I can't recommend it highly enough!
Only thing is, check to see what your main comes with; we ordered sides that were unnecessary, as our meals came with vegetables anyway.01/05/2012 00:00:00We ate lunch at the BellaWe ate lunch at the Bella Vista restaurant in Blackheath and chose the special menu, which was excellent value at £15.95 for 3 courses. The food was superb as always and the service friendly, helpful but not overdone. The restaurant was busy on a wet miserable day but it shouldnt be surprising as obviously other diners are also only too aware that this restaurant offers first class food at inexpensive prices.04/03/2012 00:00:00Bella Vista, Blackheath.
WeBella Vista, Blackheath.
We returned to this venue some 2 years after having a bad experience there. Fortunately they are back to somewhere near their best. Crab starter excellent value dish, as was the lamb rump. Service good but unobtrusive.21/02/2012 16:00:00
