Bensi co-owner Genci Previzi helms an immense menu of classic Italian cuisine, including hearty homestyle dishes with roots in Calabria, Italy. Entrees, joined by a house salad or cup of comforting housemade soup, range from spaghetti and meatballs to gluten-free grilled chicken in a lemon-garlic marinade served over a veggie medley. The chefs also prepare an array of specials such as pignoli-crusted goat cheese and arugula salad, barolo-braised veal osso buco, pan-seared Chilean sea bass with eggplant caponata, and nutella chocolate pizza with fresh strawberries. The dishes are served in a modern dining atmosphere where minimal table settings and simple dark-wood furniture keep the focus on the vibrant cuisine.

Designed after an Italian city square, Piazza Margherita brings the outdoors inside with striped awnings, faux-brick accents, and vines climbing the columns and streetlamps. A gurgling stone fountain at the restaurant's entryway welcomes guests with appetizer suggestions. The aromas of lasagna layered with ricotta cheese, pan-seared shrimp scampi in white-wine sauce, and cups of cappuccino flutter through the air, further transporting diners to Italian streets. During summer months, patrons flock to the torch-lit patio to split plates of chicken marsala and veal saltimbocca with prosciutto, spinach, and fresh melted mozzarella.
Sicilian-style pizzas are the name of the game at Bella Vita Pizzeria & Restaurant.
