Bella Vista

We had decided to have dinner prior to the Missy Higgins concert and I was dying to try something new! Yes, just because I haven’t updated veggie bites for ages doesn’t mean I have stopped eating out! It just means we go to all our favourite places all the time! This place has been around for years, and finally decided that we should try it. We started with garlic bread, which was the flat pizza type bread, and was pretty good. Martin finally decided on gnocchi pesto (he always has pesto!) and I had one of the specials without the bacon – I think it was called pasta florentina. It was a slightly creamy tomato based sauce with a hint of chilli and mushrooms – it was delicious! As was the pesto. We all decided to opt for dessert and I had profiteroles, Martin had a biscotti which came with a desert wine to dip them in and our friends had the cannoli. The meals were huge and the desserts were huge – I managed to eat two out of three profiteroles before handing it over to Martin. There is a reasonable selection of veggie options here and we all agreed that the food was really good. Too bad they are not closer to home!
