Restaurant is open only Thursday thru Saturday. Menu changes weekly, with only 3 options, land (meat), sea (seafood) and air (poultry). All food is fresh daily and prepared by the owner. Full 3 course meals. A little pricey, but well worth the experience, at least once.

Bella Vita has always been our #1 choice in Easley. You fell like you could be in Little Italy in Manhattan. Out of the way, small, intimate with wonderful food. Reservations are a must. This past week we attended one of Chef John's cooking demos. He shares his recipes & demonstrates the food preparation. You get to eat each course.... More

My husband and I found Bella Vita many years ago, and have eaten here many times since. We are never disappointed with the entire dining experience. Small -24 seat- intimate establishment. Best authentic Italian food in the Upstate. Trattoria menu that consists of one option of land, sea and air. Well worth the investment for a compete dining experience! We... More

What a surprise! This small hidden restaurant in Easley has excellent Italian food. We had a small green salad with anchovies for an appetizer, then a really delicious pasta with cream and walnut pesto that was absolutely wonderful. The salmon main dish was finished with a balsamic glaze and was cooked perfectly. We shared cannolis for dessert, which were made... More

This is a hidden gem in Easley. The chef/owner, John, is very personable and interacts with the customers. Great place for a nice dinner to celebrate. Very small and need to have reservations.

We made reservations at Bella Vita based on the recommendations of several friends. You have to make a reservation. When we pulled up we were kind of thinking it was a mistake - a small shack in a run down area. Once inside, it was a warm, wonderful little restaurant. The food was excellent. The waitress provided great service. The... More
