This restaurant at the Samoset Resort is one of our favourites in the area! Great food, wonderful ambience and a terrific wait staff! The seasonal special are quite good (blueberries were in season when we were there). A special place!

We went back two nights later and had a few more selections. Everything is FANTASTIC! Ask for Christie and she will treat you right. You... More

When dining in the restaurant there is a yummy breakfast buffet with a custom omelet station, waffles, fruit, bacon, scrambled eggs and sausage. They also had a lot of pastries and both hot and cold cereal. When we ordered room service, we had... More

The La Bella Vita restaurant is an exceptional restaurant with great food and an amazing view, but we would return mainly due to the service we received from Christie U. Nightly we would wind down our day enjoying the atmosphere, a few drinks, amazing view and great service. Additionally, we made sure to visit some of the local areas Christie... More

Our family of 5 (including 3 teenagers) enjoyed our dinner here. Our server was super friendly and efficient, and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. The menu offers an ample selection of mostly Italian dishes, and the food is tasty / solid. Often hotel restaurants aren't very good, but La Bella Vita provided us with a fine dinner experience.

It was just for pizza "But!" The ambiance was simply elegant, the service was first class and the lobster pizza was delicious. When we return we'll stay for full dinners and enjoy this delightful restaurant once again.
