Thought I would have Italian but the trio of filets with different flavors was so tempting, and the waitress confirmed it was a customer favorite. Only criticism is they had a large private party upstairs and our waitress was split between the two floors, so she was a little overextended. Despite this, she was pleasant, helpful and professional. The food... More

Two couples decided to go on a last minute trip to Maine to escape the heat. While there we ate 3 breakfasts, one dinner and three evenings in the Enoteca lounge. We really enjoyed everything the food, drinks, view, and entertainment. The thing that I personally find so outstanding is the wait staff, they were just wonderful.

We stayed at the Samoset Resort. We had breakfast at La Bella Vita 4 times and dinner 3 times. We always chose the breakfast buffet which was delicious. We had wonderful service and very nice meals for dinner. There were 6 adults and 3 children with us and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. The food was very good.

Kimee, we are so sorry to hear this. We wish you would’ve brought this to our attention before your departure so that we could’ve addressed it immediately as we take food poisoning claims very seriously. This seems to have been an isolated incident since we have not received any other reports of the omelet station making guests ill. Please be... More

Our party of 6 enjoyed happy hour and delicious appetizers while listening to the live music. Our wait person, Faith, was very pleasant and accommodating. My family comes to visit yearly from Florida, our tradition is to enjoy the view with dinner on their last night in town. The Samoset is a treasure in mid-coast Maine. Lynn Van Reich

Amazing location overlooking the Pen. Bay. The outside area is typically windy and the heaters were unreliable. The calamari starter was very good. The food went downhill from there. Our group ordered the seafood stew (average), the haddock (bad), and the steak frites (bad). We asked for my daughter's pasta to plain, no butter and it arrived with butter on... More

We sat outside on the patio on a beautiful night after enjoying a drink in the Enoteca Lounge (thanks Cy!) and had outstanding wait service by Jessica S. The restaurant was extremely busy and Jessica hustled like crazy to ensure timely, excellent service. We noticed that the staff worked as a team and helped each other out, which is an... More

First the caprese salad left a lot to be desired. Thin tomatoes not enough balsamic dressing. Husband had a great steak, the asparagus was undercooked and not,very edible. I had the haddock and it was exceptional. A note to waitstaff, when someone is in a wheelchair it doesn't mean they can't speak for themselves. The staff looked to me to... More
