Time Out NY You know those Italian restaurants that have been around forever? The ones in which every detail is effortlessly autentico{/I}? Well, Bella Via isn"t one of those. It feels more like a business plan than a neighborhood restaurant, with focus-group good looks (floor-to-ceiling windows, potted palms) and a distracted bartender in lieu of a host. Although the coal-fired brick oven"s thin-crust pizzas are delicious, you spin the roulette wheel when venturing beyond. Sliced sirloin with Gorgonzola sauce had been cooked past the requested rare. A pasta special featured flavorless sausage chunks and vapid vegetables, and the "that"s Italian!" music mix cycled through "Volare" more than once.
