We did not have a reservation on a Saturday night but we were shown to a table upstairs in a lovely small room with a library in it..very different! Wine was lovely and the food was so tasty. Was only sorry we didn't leave room for dessert as the tiramisu would have been amazing in this authentic Italian restaurant!

We stumbled on this Italian restaurant a little by accident and, what a find! Absolutely everything was perfect. Service attentive but unobtrusive, food wonderful but not fussy, wine recommends were spot on and the venue itself was sweet and welcoming with a hearty fire to complete the cosy feel. One of the best meals we have ever enjoyed.

Myself and 3 others went to this restaurant during a stay in Westport at the start of march. All 4 of us found the food fantastic. Lovely atmosphere in the restuarant with small rooms with 4 or 5 tables in each. I had the monk fish which was lovely. Others had haddock, seabass with shell fish and pasta with prawns all 4 thouroughly enjoyed the meal. The only word of caution I would give is that this is not a in out restuarant it is more of a traditional Itallian with long breaks between courses. Which suited us perfectly. Excellent restaurant that I look forward to visiting on my next trip to Westport.

Etzio(I guess this is not correct spelling) - is a great host and his staff and food variety and quality is second to none.

We are regular visitors to Westport and my sons aged 6 and 4 always request a visit to La Bella Vita for the early bird which is great value and has an excellent kids menu including ice-cream, garlic bread balls and a good selection from pasta menu.

Highly recommended, but be warned - phone and book a table at the weekends it can be very busy!!

Don't be afraid to ask for specials, chef is very accommodating and usually have a great selection of fresh sea food along with the usual's.
