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. If you prefer, you can always call 206-441-5322 for an amazing meal TO GO!

Had Fettuccine Tartufo and my wife had Spaghetti di mare. Both were very good. Bread and flavored oil for dipping started the meal. We were both too full for dessert, but the homemade tiramisu looked delicious. Marcus and Seven both provided excellent service and the accordion player's Italian... read more

We visited this restaurant on a Monday and were able to sit outside, which is very nice. I ordered Ravioli with mushroom sauce, but my mushrooms tasted burned. And what I hate is if you ask for a dessert and they tell you the haven't 2 out of 6 desserts anymore. Sory ... that is a no no for me.... More

No booking, just dropped in and restaurant was not busy. Food was good but service was most inattentive and we needed to catch the attention of the two (only) staff present on several occasions. Obviously regular customers demanded their attention with greater priority! To top this off the gratuities were automatic and we would not have gone to the 18%... More

Spaghetti de mare and Fettuccine Tartufo. Both excellent. Host/waiter named Seven was knowledgeable/accommodating/welcoming. Go there, you will not be disappointed. Great value.Oh, our waiter, Marcus was passionate about the food.

From the street, I want all that excited as I had my heart set on Mediterranean, but my husband convinced me we'd do that another night. Then, we waddled in, and my heart changed! I felt as if we'd stepped of the sidewalk and into Italy! The cute little space and the decor were perfect, but the friendly liking man... More

On a recent trip, a friend and I stayed in a hotel close to the Space Needle. We ventured out walking about dinner time to see what we could find, and being Seattle, the wind and rain started. We had no idea what we were looking for until we stumbled upon this place. What a find! No outdoor cafe dining... More

We were staying in Belltown Crt. on a rainy evening and didn't want to venture too far for dinner. Fortunately, right downstairs was this perfect Italian restaurant with and authentic atmosphere including great "crooner" tunes.

Went solo on a Thursday, 9pm. Had homemade fettuccine with a homemade sausage and king mushrooms in a white wine lemon sage sauce. Delicious. Mushrooms were a great choice. Did not overwhelm the sauce. Homemade bread was served with an olive oil dipping sauce. Dessert was homemade cannoli. Can't wait to go back.
