My partner and I were wandering the north end looking for a quaint, cozy, romantic place for dinner and came across Bella Vista at 288 Hanover St. Our first impression was a cozy inviting atmosphere. It was busy and took a few minutes to get seated. The staff was friendly, but not overly attentive. The menu had a great selection of traditional Italian cuisine, and very reasonable priced. I ordered the veal saltimbocca, and my partner ordered the chicken marsala. It was one of the best meals I have had in the north end. You can tell it it was made to order with fresh ingredients, and the flavors were in perfect harmony. During our meal the manager came over and checked in on us… She made us feel welcomed and like family. I didn't expect that and was very impressed, considering how busy it was she appeared. I recommend Bella Vista for a great evening out with friends, or with that someone special.

Have been coming here since I was a kid. Although I now live on The West Coast, I always come back here every time I come back to Boston. Great Cannoli's, Gelatto's, Cappuccino, etc. I love the Capicola sandwich. The waitresses are always extremely nice. The red walls and Italian atmosphere combined with the quaintness of Charles Street couldn't be better!
