my wife and i were walking down the street in Seattle and walked by this place. The aroma turned us around, and we're glad we went back. We're glad we went. We sat outside and it was a great, relaxing meal. The food was very good - we shared a calamari and pesto appetizer (which was delicious). The seafood pasta... More

Our first clue should've been why were we seated in the very warm corner of the restaurant vs the outside area with the nice breeze as we asked...the next was when I got up to refill my water glass. And the final straw was the menu stated for parties of 6or more gratuity added, ok we had 5. I really... More

We visited Seattle prior to embarking on an Alaskan cruise. After doing a bit of sightseeing, we headed back toward our hotel and came across La Vita E' Bella. It was early....just the beginning of their dinner service, so we walked up and grabbed a table outside on the sidewalk being it was a beautiful evening. The service was very... More

We sat outside and were made to feel very welcome in a typical Italian way. The food was really good, the Italian wine was reasonably priced and very good and the service was friendly, warm and attentive but not overbearingly so. Their tiramasu was the best ever, and even a simple green salad tasted wonderful.

We were so excited to try this place since it smelled so delicious from afar but the service was far from appetizing. Our host was less than excited to seat us and didn't even alert us that our table was ready. After seating ourselves, we weren't offered anything to drink but he decided water would be enough. Next, when our... More

We visited this charming restaurant this evening and had a great meal. The owner and wait staff were very attentive and the meal was delicious! My hard-to-please vegetarian husband enjoyed the good sized portion of the penne pesto. This Belltown restaurant offers inside and sidewalk dining, making it perfect for the recent warm weather in Seattle.

This charming place was one of the neighborhood restaurants on a list at our hotel. We walked over to check it out as friends were also coming to Seattle. Just seeing the tables on the sidewalk, the awnings was intriguing--the menu and the hostess reinforced our decision to book reservations. We did sit outside and enjoyed a memorable dinner. Two...

Very skeptical eating in Italian restaurants for the first time. Went with friends to give it a try. Arrived at restaurant didn't look very pleasing, very old looking and needs a face lift. The host was very friendly and charming. We were given bread on the table which was just toasted bread. Didn't think this was gonna go good. We... More
