We hired Bella Vita to cater a wedding at Valhalla Tahoe and the food, drinks, and service were phenomenal. I would highly recommend hiring them for any event. The owner Lori worked with us to create the perfect menu including appetizers, sides, entree, dessert, and drinks and all at a price that fit our budget. She was also easy to get ahold of and available for any questions I had regarding the catering and wedding prep.


Have been getting take out meals from Bella Vita all during the pandemic. The meals are very good and the prices are reasonable. We will keep going back for their great meals whether it is take out or dine in. Great little bistro.

If I could give them zero stars, I would. Last week we went to Bela Vita for dinner. We sat outside and immediately noticed the outdoor tables had not been cleaned for a really long time. Tables were covered in built up dirt and had spilled food all over them. Globs of dried up ketchup, white stuff, etc. We were there for almost two hours, mostly waiting to be served, drink refills, ketchup, salt and pepper,our food, etc. and never saw anyone wipe down the tables, not even once...It was disgusting. And every time we asked for something it would take at least 10 minutes for them to bring it out...if they remembered. They were more worried about serving the bar than serving the dinner guests.The service was horrible. Two waitresses and it wasn't extremely busy but fairly busy. We ordered sandwiches, so it doesn't take a rocket scientist to make a simple sandwich. We were also served last after all the other people who came AFTER us got served first! (most of them were having similar food) The owner might want to spend a little more time at their restaurant overseeing things especially when they are busy...and you also might want to take the disinfectant out of the closet and actually use it! Health dept. nightmare!

We had Lori and her catering crew cover our Mom's Celebration of Life event in Gardnerville and it was truly Fantastic! The food was deeelicious, the personal attention from the staff (Lori and Leah) and the bartender was impeccable from setup to clean up... They all did a Great Job. I highly recommend Bella Vita Catering for any event needs. Thank you all so very much!!

Lori comes to our business on Thursday and delivers sandwiches. The whole office gets sandwiches. We like them a lot, fresh and tasty. The garlic chips are fantastic. I have a vendor that comes on Thursday and he orders a sandwich too.

You come for delicious food. You come for friendly service. You might even come for the entertainment or the relaxed, informal cabaret-esque atmosphere. It's an intimate little spot in the back of Carson mall that could be the best kept secret in North Nevada. If the tiny indoor bistro thing isn't your scene, they do offer outdoor seating and overflow options in the mall. The staff are the best. In the short time we've frequented the bistro I feel we've become good friends with everyone. They are incredibly quick, too! They strive to keep the drinks flowing and the table cleared. Before Covid you couldn't find a seat. I suspect it's heading back in that direction. Just when I tell you their greatest highlight is their service, I'm reminded of how wonderful the food is. Not only is it prepared flawlessly, the combination of flavours, spices and textures make each dish a work of art. The different entrees they've created are absolutely incredible. Seeing is believing; tasting is convincing. From the time your seated little treats come your way. When their house made potato chips and Parmesan garlic aioli dip hit the table, it leaves you craving more. Then there's the carafe of fresh water and the various appetizers. Live music Fridays and karaoke Thursdays are an unequalled event. I recommend arriving early. The seats filled quickly and many stay the duration! 03/21
