Lunch in Queens, at Bella Via… There are plenty of options so your meal can be as light or heavy as you wish.
Start with an antipasta – a cool green salad; spicy marinara and calamari fried to perfection; or healthy, marinated and grilled vegetables topped with fresh mozzarella.
Move on to a main course – our trademark spaghetti plate with fresh tomatoes and basil (Spaghettini al Pomodoro e‘ Basilico); the decadent ravioli stuffed with ricotta and covered in pink sauce (Ravioli in Salsa Rosa); or the elegant rigatoni with eggplant and tomatoes (Rigatoni alla Siciliana).
Really hungry? Place your order in advance for the delightful Veal Scollopini sautéed with asparagus tips (Picatini de Vitello alla Punti de Asparagi): the pan seared calf’s liver with onions and balsamic vinegar (Fegato alla Veneziana); or the healthy grilled salmon with mustard sauce (Salmon all’erba Cipollina).
Ordering lunch for the office? You can’t go wrong with takeout from Bella Via, in the form of our famous coal-fried, brick oven pizzas. The thin, crispy, flaky dough is baked to perfection and the toppings are plentiful and varied.
Choose from the favorite restaurant of Queens locals – either the delicious argula and prosciutto pie, or the white sauced ham, Parmesan and mozzarella – or please everyone with our famous Quattro Staggioni pizza with four “stations“ (quarters) comprised of artichoke, ham, mushroom and Biancaneve (white).
Add anchovies, eggplant, sun dried San Marzano tomatoes, grilled chicken, olives, truffle oil, and half a dozen different cheeses. It’s your lunch – so get it the way you like it at Bella Via! You can order the best takeout in Long Island City, or take a long lunch hour and enjoy sit down service in our comfortable, conveniently located restaurant.
It’s great takeout food for those in the mood for gourmet Italian on the go. Forget brown bagging it or swinging through a drive in – Bella Via is the next best thing to an Italian family meal!
