Visited tonight as part of a family celebration, was impressed with the friendly welcome and we were shown to our table promptly. We were given plenty of time to order, as a group we had starters across the menu, meatballs, pate, mozzarella, bruschetta - everyone was pleased with the quality. I was impressed with mine, which was the pate, very... More

6 of us visited La Bella on Saturday to celebrate my birthday although the restaurant was very busy we were seated reasonably quickly. The food and service were fantastic and friendly. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone

We had a table booked for 6 girls Friday night and had a few drinks in the bar before we were seated. We’ve not been for a couple of years so were surprised by the refurbishment (looks lovely) The restaurant was full and had a fabulous atmosphere. The staff were faultless and very attentive, pouring our wine whenever our glasses... More

Had a birthday celebration last night for 7 and thoroughly enjoyed every aspect. Busy and a lively atmosphere even for mid week, attentive staff and great food, will definitely add it to our list.

Dined here last night as a party of 4 adults and found that La Bella Vita lived up to it's own high standards both in the standard of food and the pleasant, courteous staff. I had the polpette salantine starter (meatballs in a creamy tomato sauce) and it is a thing of beauty, followed by lobster ravioli with king prawns... More

Visited as a celebratory meal on 23rd Dec after finishing for the Christmas holidays. Typical Italian fare, a restaurant that's fortunate to be set in quite a densely populated area, Garforth so it does catch the local clientele many of whom will be regulars who don't want to venture further a field. You have the option to dine on a... More

The food is good for the price although nothing that would mark it as being especially spectacular. Service remains slow and largely unresponsive. Tonight the second veg was forgotten and the second round of drinks never arrived. On the whole I remain surprised that there are so many good reviews. While it is not a bad restaurant the food is...

I visited recently as part of large group with 2 babies. The food was to a high standard as always. The staff were pleasant and very accommodating to our needs ( high chairs and extra space for car seats). The only slight negative point is we had to ask for drinks a few times before they were served.
