Kept waiting nearly an hour for a pre booked table with no apology

I always respect any customer service role. It's not easy dealing with different expectations and demands if people. A great supervisor or manager needs to be able to listen to the customer and resolve any situation professionally and for the best outcome. Unfortunately this can't be said for our... read more

I am a regular customer to this restaurant not only because it is on my doorstep but the meals have always been great. My family went to celebrate the parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary in a party of 24. The food was exquisite. Service excellent bearing in mind the numbers involved and other customers were present and it made for a... More

This is my second visit to this beautiful restaurant. It is very convenient from the Holiday inn hotel where we have stayed for two nights this weekend. I have to admit I wasn't expecting a luxurious place in Garforth but this restaurant can compete with any city centre luxury. I had a seafood pasta Scoglio which was the best one... More

La Bella Vita in Garforth is a restaurant I have eaten in many times over the years. Having recently undertaken a refurb, the interior is now looking stylish, so I was looking forward to taking my girlfriend there. I should have realised the omens weren't set fair for a good experience though, given we went on Friday 13th!! The service... More

I visited this restaurant with friends celebrating another friends birthday, needless to say I look forward to my next trip here. The service is exactly as you would both want it and expect. The restaurant is both clean and well maintained. None of these are reasons for why I would recommend you visit here though. Quite simply go here for... More

Visited the restaurant for a romantic meal with my partner after reading the reviews. We arrived to see if we could get a table, during a period of about five minutes this time all of the waiters and waitresses saw us, and approached the bar area for drinks but not one of them even acknowledged our presence. Not even a... More

Visited la Bella vita twice in a week, 1st with friends then with family for a birthday celebration. On both occasions, the quality of the food was excellent as was the standard of service. I have commented on the restaurant in the past and said the only downside was that it can tend to get noisey, on each occasion this... More

First time we have visited this restaurant, we will certainly be returning, the food was amazing, even though it was a fairly busy Friday night, we got seated to our table on time and the food didn't take long to arrive once ordered. The service staff were very efficient and friendly. We look forward to returning very soon.
