If you are trying to cut down on how much meat you consume, but find eating out to be a temptation, why not choose a restaurant with plenty of excellent meatless options? Bella Via is a great place to get a full meal without the need to consume red meat or poultry. You can opt for fish based dishes or go completely meat free.

Antipasta/Salads:

Start with grilled marinated vegetables with fresh mozzarella, or a salad of red beets with onions and goat cheese. Alternately, choose between a salad of mixed greens (insalatina di campo) or a simple Caesar salad (insalata Cesare.)

Soups:

Want something a little warmer? A trio of delicious soups await – zuppa di faggioli (a soup of cannellini beans and short pasta), minestrone de vegetali (mixed vegetable soup), or stracciatella alla romana (egg drop soup with spinach).

Entrees:

Try our ricotta / spinach gnocchi with tomato and olives, or penne with mushrooms and peas. We’ve got rigatoni with eggplant and tomatoes, and spaghetti with fresh tomatoes and basil.

Seafood:

We can also serve you such seafood delicacies as grilled salmon with mustard sauce, Arborio rice with seafood, angel hair pasta with shitake mushrooms and shrimps, mussels in a white wine sauce, or grilled or fried calamari.

Don’t let “meatless Mondays” keep from enjoying a meal out at a nice Italian restaurant. Come to Bella Via and find out how to stay on your diet without missing out on terrific food!
