great italian food/service mixed response to requests

the layout of the restaurant is a little crowded. the food is very good, the service is quick enough, but some of the male waiters are a bit taciturn, also when I wanted more table napkins I had to ask twice the male waiter ignored my request,not for the first time

Visited the La Bella Vita 2 weeks ago. The service and food where excellent and the seating arrangements now are a lot better, so no overcrowding now in the back room like before

Ate here some time ago but visited recently (party of 6), Two course Sunday lunch menu for £10.95. Varied range of Italian starters - garlic mushrooms, calamari, meatballs in a tomato sauce, soup of the day. All were very, very good. Main courses of fillet of cod, Pizza, chicken, lasagne, spaghetti bolognaise; again all well presented with quality ingredients being... More

It was a busy mid week..... Which in one way is a positive as it demonstrates a good spread of demand. On the other hand the service was a little slow and having to catch the waiters eye to egg him along really was tedious. The food again was good but as with the service it wasn't fantastic. It was...

We booked a table for 15 for my Grandfathers 90th. All in all the food, service and staff were excellent, if a little slow especially has we had a few children in the group. The food was hot and of a good quality. We will happily return again

Enthusiastic staff alongside an enjoyable and bustling atmosphere. I was part of a large party (12 people) and it was a very busy Friday night - I think it was these factors that contributed to the slow service and luke warm food however, a quieter night would have probably eradicated these down falls. A good family restaurant.

Our first visit to this restaurant, we booked a table for 6pm Saturday evening dinner expecting it to be relatively quiet at such an early hour. On arrival, however, we were rather surprised to find many of the tables taken and the place heaving !! The noise levels were many decibels above what we would have chosen as suitable for... More

Eat here on a regular basis, never had a bad experience, always great food and perfect portion sizes. Would recommend the pizza's, Calzone and Diavolo are two of my personal favourites. The pasta dishes are also great, if you love a spag bol you must try this one. Best dishes in the house have to be the Rissoto, both the... More

The food here is always lovely. Very freshly cooked always hot and nicely presented. The amazing thing is that it is always so busy whenever I go. The staff are quick, astute and responsive but friendly with it. A good place to be with family or friends. Try it for yourself soon. Always suggest advance booking and take sleeves- the... More

Went to pick up my wife in Garforth after she had been on a coach outing to Scarborough, someone on the coach had mentioned how good this place was and as it was next to the car park we thought we would try it. It was a friday evening and very busy but they managed to fit us in. A... More
