Great spot for quiet dinner with friends, family or just for two. Food is consistently good and service is great. Great neighborhood spot.

“Cozy, wood fired pizza & more!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

La Bella Vita is in a small barely noticed strip mall on Empire Blvd. (Across from the Verizon store) at 1759 Empire Blvd in Webster, NY 14580. As you enter, you will discover a small bar that has a nice contemporary italian decor. You then are escorted by a friendly wait staff to a small eating area. The lighting is low and cozy. You can watch as the wood fired pizzas are being created and baked. But La Bella Vita is soooo much more! The menu is filled with a plethora of italian dishes from grilled calamari, bruschetta, paninis, pizzas, pastas and don't forget their special of the day risotto!!! I was informed that the chef was formerly from Two Vine in Rochester. This explains why the dishes are so special and a cut-above typical tired Italian restaurants. Their house salad is fresh and huge; enough to split for two. The prices are extremely reasonable for the quality of each plate. Try their daily special for an extra special treat! I am a Webster resident that will visit La Bella Vita often! I love the atmosphere! I hope they don't expand and lose the ambiance of this little discovery with the big taste!

“Impressed and Will Return!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

My wife and I recently ate here and were very satisfied with our experience. We split a wood fire pizza and chicken french. Both were delicious and came in large enough portions so that some was brought home. The roasted veggies as a side choice and bread with olive oil were great additions. The ambiance was impressive, the place was cozy and the prices were fair. The wine list was extensive--all in all, we will go back. It is a great place for adults and couples celebrating an occasion. Don't just drive by, the cars in front speak for the quality.

“Un-expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

I liked it! Our server was very attentive. The dining room is cozy with the wood pizza oven open to view. The wine selection is good. It wasn't noisy as so many restuarants are. My disappointment is that their website is outdated. Pictures show mouth watering dishes no longer available ---- A number of the menu items on the website are no longer available. The dining room menu had changed. When I asked about a dish I had seen on the website and had been thinking about all day, the server kindly inquired, but the ingredients were no longer available.

“Love the food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

This is a great neighborhood place and the food is right from scratch. The chef uses the owner's family Italian recipes. We make this a 'regular' on our list. Also, the service is terrific. I do wish they'd take reservations as we've had to wait at the bar many times on Friday nights.
