The "vibrant flavors of Sicily" are yours "without an eight-hour plane ride" at this cash-only Bella Vista trattoria, whose "unpretentious" storefront exterior belies the "ambitious" cooking within – declared so "delicious" , some would bestow chef Peter McAndrews with "honorary Italian" status; a "wonderful staff" and wallet-friendly BYO policy are two more reasons many could "eat there every night."

Unexpectedly delicious brunch. I took my family here on a whim and we were thoroughly impressed by the food. Very very good tastes to be had. Delicious coffee too. 4 stars because I think the chef had a hard time preparing everything at the same time, my potatoes were closer to lukewarm than hot.

This restaurant offers great value for the food that is prepared and served. Presentation is fantastic and flavors so divine. Owners present and involved. We would define here every night if we could.

The flavors the chef puts together are phenomenal, as is the service & atmosphere.
