Although there had been an Italian restaurant at this address for years before, Bella Vita is a brand-new restaurant, only open since Summer 2013, and they seem to have hit the ground running.
Knowing a good thing, they have stuck with the menu from the previous business, but the execution of these dishes has moved up a notch.
Good ambience, although I'd personally like to see them create at least a couple of booths, to make the place seem less exposed.
Great value too, and some really pleasant staff round off the whole thing. I regularly visit Kenmare with my wife, and had missed our "Friday night Italian" slot from our long-weekend routine, but Bella Vita has fixed that for us. We'll be back next time.
