It was a very rainy night so we elected to stay in for dinner at our hotel (after finding out that The West Street Cafe had a long wait.) We enjoyed a break from all that lobster with some fine Italian specialties and a nice bottle of wine. It was a very relaxing evening.

We wanted a break from meat so looked for an Italian restaurant for pasta and this did not disappoint. We both had the caprese salad which was tasty. My husband had the 'build your own pasta' where you can choose your pasta and then your sauce and then the vegetables and meat. He loved it. I had gnocchi and it... More

We recently had dinner and breakfast at La Bella Vita while staying at the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised with both meals. The calamari appetizer was delicious, My husband thought the scallops were very good and I enjoyed the salmon salad. There was a nice wine selection, especially by the bottle. The breakfast buffet was excellent and included made-to-order omelettes... More

We went to this restaurant for dinner on our vacation to Maine and it was bad. I ordered the pizza and my wife ordered the pan cooked lobster. The lobster was to be a two pound lobster but it was more like eight ounces. I have had better frozen pizzas than the one I was served. The restaurant was beautiful... More

We made reservations in the morning for an evening meal here. We were shown to a table near a window and had an excellent waiter. Alex. Alex was helpful in the selection of our meal and our drink. He was attentive as the meal progressed. We really enjoyed our experience here.
