Chef Rima Barkett grew up in Tuscany, Italy in a large loving family that emigrated from Syria in the 1960s. In her mother's kitchen she learned the love of feeding people and sharing her amazing talent for cooking delicious, simple meals that easily brings people together. Rima brought those traditions with her to the United States in 1993. BellaVista is excited to share this beautiful dining experience with you offering savory authentic Italian cuisine in the heart of downtown Stockton.
