Bella Viva Ristorante and Wine Bar
It was a busy night and although there is outside seating, there was a fall chill in the air and we were seated at one of the last inside tables. Having been there before, the three of us knew exactly what we would order: three wood-fired pizzas, a shared salad and a wine flight for each of us.
The watermelon salad ($13) with arugula and burrata cheese, came plated on a slab of dark gray slate, and was refreshingly delicious. Our three pizzas came out on slices of polished oak: a Margherita ($13.95), a Greek style ($14.95) and my favorite, a combination of prosciutto and goat cheese ($16.95).
We each chose a different wine flight: my daughter, in a celebratory mood, chose the Classic Sparklers ($24). Being a Zinfandel lover, I chose the It’s a Jam-boree!, ($23), a jammy trio of fruit-forward wines, while my husband ordered a flight of Italian wines from Piemonte, the Bella Figura ($24). It was fun to have our very own selection of wines to enjoy—going back and forth between them to find our favorites. Clinking our glasses in a toast to Lindsey, it was a perfect celebration.
