As Spring approaches, many Geist residents will want to dine outside; there are many options for that. One of my favorites is Bella Vita's in the Geist area. Did you know that Bella Vita means Good Life?
It is located on 11699 Fall Creek Road at the Marina. You can dine inside or outside and get a great view of the Geist Reservoir.
Bella Vita was established on March 5, 1998 by Henri and Shelley Najem.
Starting on April 15th, they are now serving Lunch Thursday-Sunday from 11-4 PM and Dinner is Sunday through Thursday from 4-10 PM and Friday and Saturday from 4-11 PM. They also have breakfast on Sundays with live jazz. You can make reservations at 598-9011.
The Bella Vita menu is superb with wonderful crab cakes, Ravioli Pomodoro or their filet mignon; if you can't decide just order the Taste of Bella Vita!
The mezzanine lounge has a full bar and appetizer menu and has live music.
We visited for Mother's Day for their brunch and it was so fabulous. The decor, the atmosphere, the views, the service and the food all combine for a totally perfect dining experience.
I think one of the best part of dining at Bella Vita is the water views of Geist Reservoir; watching the boats come in and go across the waters. It is so relaxing for me.
Their are many great restaurants for the Geist Real Estate residents to visit, Bella Vita just happened to be the one I wanted to feature first. Living in Lawrence Township allows me to the a local expert on the sights, sounds and the real estate market and I am really looking forward to sharing that with all of my readers.
