Description: At La Vita E Bella we provide authentic Italian food made with homemade sauces and pasta. We offer many seafood dishes inspired by our Sicilian roots and fresh Seattle offerings. Thin pizzas are baked fresh for our mouthwatering customers. We have a large wine selection and many antipasto platters (appetizers) that are perfect for a quick drink and snack on the go. With a live accordion player, our restaurant has a romantic atmosphere and welcoming environment ideal for locals and tourists alike. Owner Giuseppe Forte strives to offer affordable cuisine that pops with flavor and value. He personally buys the groceries several times a week to insure the best products, allowing prices to remain low and fair for our customers.

Based upon trip advisor ratings, my wife and I walked there in the rain from our hotel on 01/17/2015. The atmosphere was nice and we liked the music playing in the background. Service started quite slow even though the place was only half-full. It took fifteen minutes to get more than water. Once our order was taken, things moved along... More

We made reservations, for it was Christmas day, thank goodness we did there was a line out the door. The atmosphere was romantic with an accordion player serenading the guests. I got one of the pizzas and all I have to say is there had to be a little Italian women in the back making the food because it was... More

We had two pasta dishes, the Spaghetti Carbonara and the Fettuccine Tartufo which were both great. The dishes are a large serving and quite rich. We got the Romano pizza for our 8 year old as the pasta dishes were a bit much for her, but the pizza was great.

The food was very good - unlike some Italian restaurants I've been to this was unpretentious - just good tasty food. The service very prompt and friendly. I would definitely go back here again.

The pasta was amazing, the service was genuinely friendly. I have been trying to find good coffee the last 6 weeks of travelling through USA (american coffee is the worst) and this is definitely a coffee addicts dream. The tiramisu was the best I've tasted outside of Italy. Highly recommended!

Was there tonight. All was good. Home made lemon cello was awesome. Filet mignon was a bit heavy on the port sauce but was cooked perfect. Going back soon. I come to Seattle a lot and will be there again within three days

I spent 10 days in Napoli, Italy which has spoiled me when it comes to restaurants claiming "authentic pizza". However, this place is the real thing. Great tasting pizza, nice decor, friendly staff. Would suggest the older staff be reminded of food hygiene - handling menus and then handling food (i.e. making a sandwich) is not good practice.

On a recent trip to Seattle, I had randomly searched for an Italian restaurant in the area of our hotel (Belltown) This one came up and was near by so decided to give it a try- we were VERY glad we did! My husband and I both ordered the Tuesday night special pasta - Ravioli with a saffron/king crab sauce,... More

This restaurant is great for so many different reasons. They have great food, a nice ambience, and a wonderful accordion player on the night I visited. I ordered their a Caesar Salad and the Swordfish special, and all I can say is that the Swordfish entree was amazing. They gave me a very sizable piece of swordfish which tasted extremely... More
