“Stunning location, friendly staff & delicious food ”

Written on: 29/03/2012

My husband and I visited Bella Vista in South Queensferry on Saturday 3rd March. In the afternoon, we looked inside and the restaurant was fairly quiet with only a few customers. The staff were very welcoming and asked if we would like to come inside and have a look at the stunning view. We asked if it would be ok to just order drinks and no food. The waiter said no problem and promptly took our drinks order. As we enjoyed our drinks and admired the view of both bridges, we could see various… Read Full Review

“Awful service”

Written on: 25/03/2012 by Charlie121a (1 review written)

In previous years I have been a fan of bella vista and used to dine here regularly. Since we hadn't visited in a while mysel and my partner booked a table to discover things have indeed changed in this previously friendly and fantastic restaurant. Our cutlery was thrown at us. We were given one napkin between 2. One menu between 2. There was no beer or lager available. The cordial tasted in diluted. We were placed next to a large table to whom we were so close we kept bumping the neighbouring… Read Full Review

“I need a kilt...”

Written on: 28/10/2011 by CameronWilliamson (3 reviews written)

What a superb restaurant! I'd been worried that on a Saturday nighttime it may be packed and so unpleasant, yet it wasn't when I went, so I had the pleasure of being allowed to take a look around personally and talk comfortably with my company. Your wine menu was intriguing and the bar staff members extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I can't wait to get back there and try out more food or do a drinks tasting… Read Full Review

The views from this restaurant are fantastic. Right overlooking the Forth & the 2 bridges. However, for the price of the food, I would have expected much better quality & service. Decor is a bit dated too… Read Full Review

Took my wife and daughter, views were fabulous sadly to say it went down hill from there, the food was actually good, although very small portions and very expensive, no bread given with Soup, when I asked for some they charged me £1,95"- for the pleasure of 2 small slices, unbelievable!
As mentioned in another review the waiters were extremley rude & abrupt, no child menu either.

The food was spot-on. Usually, you will leave a restaurant with 1 or 2 small criticisms about the food, but it was nothing short of perfect on this occasion.
The penne con funghi e crema was beautiful, while the tartufo ice-cream was mouthwatering.

Written on: 07/01/2009 by shawshoose (1 review written)

I am a big fan of Massino's but Bella Vista surpassed even them.

Honestly if you are even slightly romantic the place will blow you away just with the views. If you want really good Italian food cooked fresh then it's the place to go.
