A “family-style Italian BYO with a more refined menu" is how fans describe Maria Forte’s Bella Vista trattoria, whose gnocchi is like "taking a bite out of a cloud" ; a few see the setting as "South Philly gaudy" , but “friendly” service “takes the cake" and prompts many to “come back time and time again."

I had a decent experience here. It's a small location, but comfortable. The food was very tasty, I recommend the gnocchi and meat-sauce. Overall, my experience was pleasant.. but do be prepared, if you want to leave with a full stomach.. the prices are outrageous, especially for the quality of food and overall atmosphere.

I had the pleasure of dining here last night with my family. The food was great but our waitress made the night. She was so nice and helpful. I believe her name was Jamie and when I go back, I will definitely ask for her section.

My husband and I went to dinner there. The food was outstanding as usual. However, even though the air conditioning was on it was still uncomfortable. In fact we took our entrees home. Maybe they should add ceiling fans. Other than that we had a good time, sorry that our night was cut short.
