The lobster ravioli is amazing! Breakfast outside on the terrace is tasty and the view is great. We got the breakfast as part of our package.

Beautiful restaurant on the bottom floor of the Samoset resort. We found the restaurant good, but strangely out of sync. To begin, the chairs were uncomfortable--you literally sink into a hole in the middle--the table a tad too high and the distance across the table a bit too far. Next, we were harassed by flies throughout our meal. Nonstop. Finally,... More

We reserved outside seating in advance and our table was inside. The calamari was sort of soggy, the pizza was cold and sent back, the pasta wasn't much warmer, but the chicken was hot. We figured it was a bad night for the restaurant and decided to try the next day for breakfast! We didn't have a reservation, but it... More

My family had mixed review for La Bella Vita. Great location within Samoset with a nice view. The service was fine and my lobster ravioli was good, not great. My sons pizza was not good, soggy and my other sons spaghetti and meatballs was bad. Very expensive meal because of the setting but the need to be better

We went to grab a bit to eat at the Enoteca Lounge at about 9:15 PM. We sat right next to the food preparation was and had a fun conversation with the folks there. However, it took about 15 minutes for a waitress to show up to serve us. Once we placed our order, we saw our food prepared then... More

Mediocre food and amateurish service in a great location. The restaurant claims to be an upscale Italian gourmet restaurant but the food is merely average, the pizzas are limp, the red sauce dishes are bland, the desserts are overly sweet, the service is by untrained college kids and the prices are sky high. Come here for the superb location and... More

If you don't book a reservation in time, you can still enjoy the food in the adjoining restaurant. Check with the hostess. Great singers in the lounge as well!
