Bella vista is a great place to eat. The views are terrific. Our server Lucy was fantastic very attentive and knew the menu inside out. The food was fantastic I would highly recommend this establishment. Take the funicular railway up and eat here you will be pleasantly surprised. Added to this the bill was not over the top. Well done... More

This place is a true gem! The food is great (a little pricey but worth it), the scenery is phenomenal and the people are very friendly. This restaurant is a keeper and should be revisited whenever you're in Pittsburgh.

I attended a business dinner here in late 2015. Everything was absolutely amazing. The photo I took from our table remains one of my favorites. The food and wine were excellent but the view is the star of the show.

I enjoyed dinner here on a recent trip. It is pricey but the food is well worth it, especially considering the views. The service was great as well.

This restaurant has great views and was good for a large group. The service was good and a decent wine selection but I thought the food was overpriced.

I have lived in the "burgh" for many years and my wife and I have ate at just about every restaurant in the city, Bella Vista surpasses them all on many levels. It's true that it may seem expensive at first, but you must keep in mind that your entrée includes your choice of homemade salad or soup and all... More

The views are nice at this Mount Washington restaurant, but the décor is worn, tacky, and in need of complete refurbishment. The food is not even mediocre: the quality of the ingredients is low and the preparation very disappointing. Poor quality chicken and beef destroyed the entrees. The only reason to patronize this restaurant is the view and - given... More

My husband and I are planning the rehearsal dinner for our son's upcoming wedding. We do not live in Pennsylvania but had visited Pittsburgh and were familiar with the wonderful views found in the Mt. Washington restaurants. My Italian heritage and the fact that everyone loves Italian food (right?), led us to Bella Vista. My husband called nine, yes 9,... More
