Bella Via has become well known in Long Island City and beyond in Queens as one of the nicest Italian restaurants around. Fine wine, fine dining, and a friendly atmosphere keep the doors wide open and the reservation list full. But the real story behind Bella Via’s success is anything but a secret – it’s our pizza.

While full-fledged Italian fare for the whole family is an amazing meal on a cold winter night, sometimes you simply want something simple, delicious, and filling to order in or take away – and Bella Via pizza in Long Island City is the ideal solution.

Each pie starts with our made from scratch crust, which is baked in our coal fire brick ovens to the perfect cross between crunchy and chewy – just like a New York pizza should be.

Our sauce is also made fresh – from San Marzano tomatoes so you get the big, bold burst of flavor in every single bite. (Don’t care for red sauce? No problem. Our white sauce is creamy smooth and delicious, too.)

Choose your toppings – we have everything from onions, mushrooms and peppers to chicken, beef, and sausage. Get fancy and add pineapple or anchovies – or go elegant and opt for a few more cheeses and some truffle oil with a scattering of arugula to surprise your sweetheart after a long day of battling the crowds while Christmas shopping.

Pizza baked in the brick, coal fire oven allows the crust to bake thoroughly and crisp tender vegetables come out just right in the super-hot interior. You’ll never be disappointed with a Bella Via Pizza – just look at what our customers have to say:

Bella Via is a solid family-run Italian restaurant in LIC. Perfect for those chilly winter afternoons when you are craving a crispy margherita pie. ~Doreen L, Queens

We had an excellent Brunch at Bella Via Restaurant.  There’s nothing like a Coal Oven to make real pizza. We had a Margherita Pizza with Prosciutto and Mushrooms.  Perfectly made pizza as good as I’ve had in the famous Brooklyn Margherita. ~Kwai L, Forest Hills

Pizza is delicious and worth it. They do thin sliced pizza and wow, just wow. It comes on this elevated tray which makes you feel like royalty. Its the way grandma pies are made. If you don’t feel making the trip and live close by order. The delivery is always under 40mins and the pizza is fresh. ~Louise D, Long Island City
