La Bella Vita is Samoset Resort's signature restaurant and is definitely worth a visit. The menu offers an extensive offering of traditional and innovative Italian dishes. The restaurant also offers dining on a large terrace with great views over the golf course and to the ocean. We had the Bruschetta Trio and Mushroom Risotto to start and both were very... More

We arrived this past Saturday and have tried a couple of restaurants in the area. Sadly we have been very disappointed until tonight. We decided to go to La Bella Vita as we are staying on the resort and went to check it out. It's decor beautifully rich and warm. We were four and everything we ordered was excellent. Like... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the special food & great service provided by Christie U last evening. The antipasto board of salami's & cheeses was a perfect start. The lobster ravioli was excellent as was the chicken saltimbucco. The blueberry pie was a perfect ending. A little pricey but well worth it when the entire experience was so enjoyable!

This is a great restaurant and lounge offering a wide variety. We often go for a pizza and salad which are delicious and reasonably priced. The view, inside or outside is amazing. It is also cozy inside with the fireplace and the lighting. Whenever we are up in the Camden/Rockland/Rockport area, we go here.

Some resort restaurants disappoint, but definitely not this one! The multi-level floor plan gives the opportunity for most diners to look out to the Bay in the near distance. Our only quibble with the décor is the sheet of white paper placed over the entire tabletop, in an effort, I suppose, to save on laundry expenses with the white tablecloths.... More
