So... my wife and I had been on a search for "that" Italian restaurant. The one we would go to and be floored because the experience was so good.... we knew we wouldn't find this in a chain restaurant, which led us to Vita Felice. We went on a Sunday afternoon after church (2014)... the sign on the door said... More

The authentic warmth that we were used to receiving since the restaurant opened was gone... When I asked where the other owner was the response was rude and argumentative. A simple explanation would have been fine, but was not offered. We had all come in excited because it was a celebration. But his attitude totally put a damper on the... More

We went with friends to this place because of proximity to our hotel. Our food was very good and worth the wAit. We weren't sure if they were short of help or if this is the way it always is but the service was extremely slow. So if you aren't in a hurry I recommend it highly! The bread will... More

The title says it all... very "strip mall" style inside, entree prices were not appropriate to its location

Driving to Florida we needed dinner on our overnight stop. Desk clerk at Fairfield Inn recommended Vita Felice. It was Valentines Day and place was packed. Host was able to squeeze us in. Nice white table cloth restaurant. They had a young woman with beautiful voice singing. Food was very good. Decent wines are reasonably priced. Had a cannoli for... More

We went for dinner at this restaurant, the service was great! But the tablecloth and bread plates were dirty... my husband liked is meal (calzone) and I had the chicken Marsala... it was ok. I would not return to this restaurant next time I'm in Fredericksburg, VA. The music was too loud!

As soon as we walked in we were impressed by the classy atmosphere It was very relaxed and the music was Italian, but the place was pretty empty, and for a Valentine's Day weekend we felt something was wrong. There were cloth tablecloths, and the place looked very clean and stylish. They served hot, fresh bread and the portions were... More

On Friday the 13th my wife and I decided to try Vita Felice a local restaurant. Entering in at 7:45 the only diners were another couple. I chose the Daily "Special" of Veal and my wife eggplant parmesan. Both were a disappointment. The presentation was pedestrian at best. The noodles on my dish were well below expected temperature, the veal... More
