Bella Vista Restaurants- Top 5
I’ve lived in Philadelphia my entire life. I love food and an very passionate about it and would never be bias in my opinion-( To anyone who loves food, this is an unwritten rule). I eat out often and do love several restaurants in Bella Vista. These are 5 of the best restaurants, not only in Bella Vista, but arguably in the entire City of Philadelphia. Today’s society eats much different than the way they did in past years. The food is different, the portions are different, the plates, the presentation, right on down to the appearance of the staff. These 4 Bella Vista restaurants are all historical authentic Italian restaurant landmarks. All of which have been in business for over 50 years and have been consistently been awarded for just about every dining award possible.
1.) Saloon Restaurant
2.) Ralph’s Italian Restaurant
3.) Villa Di Roma
4.) Dante & Luigi’s
5.) Fitzwater Cafe
About Bella Vista
Bella Vista, Italian for “beautiful sight”, is a neighborhood in the South Philadelphia section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Annual festivals in the neighborhood include the Italian Market Festival and Bella Vista Festa. Arts and cultural events in Bella Vista are centered around public concerts, coffeehouses and Fleisher Art Memorial.
Bella Vista was the first neighborhood settled by Italian immigrants in Philadelphia, and it continues to be one of Philadelphia’s Italian American neighborhoods. The Italian Market is most recognized from the motion picture “Rocky” when Sylvester Stallone ran down 9th street as part of his training ritual. It is the second most visited tourist attraction in all of Philadelphia. In case you are wondering, The Liberty Bell is first.
