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

Casual, yet upscale ambience. Great prices, service and selection. Very friendly staff. Outdoor patio is gorgeous and you can sit and watch people play golf or just look at the Atlantic ocean.

Our party of 8 recently enjoyed an entertaining evening here and left feeling pleasantly wowed by the food and service. There is not one single item on the menu that didn't appeal to me and I ended up ordering the Chicken Saltimbocca as well as the lemon cheesecake - both delicious!

Upon mere mention of overcooked eggs Benedict, server Kim Pease whisked them away and brought me French Toast, divinely prepared with layers of bananas and strawberries with what seemed like buttered berry cream between each layer. She was graceful and kind. Without her wonderful service I would not have returned. Now I certainly will. What a pro!

We ventured to the resort for the long weekend. We experienced lunch, dinner, and breakfast in the two restaurants. La Bella Vita is a sit down restaurant and reservations are recommended - at least thins weekend. There were several weddings taking place at the resort this particular weekend. Perhaps this caused an increase in patrons. The first time we attempted... More

Hoteliers don't always excel at food service at their own property but Samoset certainly does with their La Bella Vita & The Enoteca Lounge. We had three dinners and three breakfasts here and found the food to be very good with great views of the bay and surrounding grounds no matter where you are seated. Outside seating is also available.... More
