One of the best places around to wine and dine, in an area that is blessed with many. The fire in the lounge is cozy on these cold nights, and if you're there in the daytime the view from the dining room can't be beat. In warm weather the deck is ideal for lunch or an evening meal. It is... More

We ate here often during a one week stay @ Samoset in the summer of 2014. Food is very good & the atmosphere is very classy. We did breakfasts, several dinners, & Sunday brunch, dining al fresco for brunch. Dinners are a little pricey, & on weekends it's best not to be in a hurry, but it's worth it for... More

We never sat in the main restaurant, but ate three meals in the Enoteca Lounge while staying at the Samoset in January. We also ordered desserts delivered to our room, which were yummy. We enjoyed hanging out at the lounge. The place is very comfortable and welcoming. The bar menu food is pretty good but I made the mistake of... More

While staying at the Samoset Resort over the holiday break we enjoyed two dinners at La Bella Vita. To be honest, both of our meals and the service exceeded expectations. First, the restaurant is quite nice, trendy but comfortable at the same time. The front area has a great bar and private seating areas, and the dining room is upscale... More

We went on a rainy Sunday intending to have the buffet lunch and then we saw the menu and ordered the Shrimp and Lobster Scampi style. It was incredible! Large chunks of seafood filled the bowl. The creamy sauce was seasoned to perfection - a real taste bud treat. We ate at the bar and the bartender was very responsive... More

At the Samoset Hotel and resort. Part bar and restaurant with views of the ocean. Crowded so make a reservation and a bit noisy. Good thin pizzas, great pasta in small and large portions. Lots of seafood standalone and in pasta dishes. Wait staff was very friendly. Good wine list and martinis.

Enjoyed a warm and quiet, romantic dinner here on Christmas Eve. The wine list is extensive and good. The Caesar Salads, Chicken Saltimbocca and Grilled Prime NY Strip Steak were perfectly prepared, served hot and delicious even with an almost full house. The only thing missing was music of any sort. Classical, jazz, Italian or even holiday music would have... More

We have come to La Bella Vita several years in a row for a lovely Christmas dinner. The room is pretty and the service has been good. This year, everything changed. Our reservation took a while to find even though we reserved two weeks earlier. Our steaks were thin, overcooked and gristly. The formerly sumptuous salad was tiny. A portion... More

Last night our family birthday party of 5 adults and 4 children was seated in a private dining room with glass doors dividing us from the main restaurant. It was perfect. We could hear each other well and the children had the freedom to get up and down, switch seats, play with each other and not disturb other patrons. The... More
