For my birthday I chose the Bella Vista .. I hadn't been in a while and have heard good things recently. Well, it was the right choice! If you have to wait a moment at the bar - it's okay - have a cocktail and devour some delicious homemade chips. When you get to your table a delivery of roasted... More

This restaurant is in the middle of nowhere and looked like a simple house from the outside, but it is a fine dinning inside! They open at 5 pm and stay open till 10 pm. Chef cooks everything, including dressings for the salads. We had a wonderful appetizer: scallops and homemade chicken soup, phenomenal marinated chicken and a special: pork... More

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.

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.
