Fodor's Expert Review Bistro Bella Vita
Promoting local, natural, and sustainable ingredients, this bistro applies that philosphy to an eclectic menu that's sure to satisfy many palates—and waitstaff won't bat an eye at requests for gluten-free and vegan items. While dishes slant toward Italian—an antipasta platter or crackly thin-crust pizzas with offbeat toppings from a wood-burning oven—influences from other global regions pop up too, like paella with tiger shrimp and chorizo, or an entrée-size Greek salad. Included on the wine and beer lists are selections from Michigan. The atmosphere is very publike, but with a contemporary feel and high ceilings.
