Food was great, entertainer was cheesy and loud

Food was great, our waitress Jessica was better. Enjoyed our family meal there until Nick the lounge singer began his program with a pseudo-KennyG set that was way too loud to continue any normal conversations with our elder family members.

Our only disappointment here is that when we arrived, they said we had requested to be inside. Since we never do that, I knew there was a mistake but didn't want to fuss. Would have much preferred outdoor seating, and that spoiled it a bit for me, but everything was very nice. Our server was very good, wines had reasonable... More

We had a spectacular Maine day when eating at La Bella Vita with clear blue skies and wonderful temperatures - perfect for eating out on the large patio overlooking the golf course, Rockland Harbor and Penobscot Bay in front of this Samoset Resort restaurant. So, location, location - absolutely lovely. My only critique of the tables outside would be that... More

A wonderful place to dine. Water views and food that would be hard to beat. The service was impeccable and we were not rushed even though they were very busy. If you want to eat outside be sure to make a reservation ahead of time.
