When we (family of 3) arrived for dinner (19:15) it was perhaps too early and the place was still empty, so we worried. No outdoor sitting, which we would have preferred, the restaurant inside looked (and felt, at first) a bit... stiff, for a summer evening outing. White table clothes, candles, flowers. As from 19:30 other customers arrived and the place became very quickly full and more cosy. Waiters were very professional, attentive and ... good in (several) foreign languages. Specials of the day included 7-8 dishes, not on the menu, which were minutely listed and described. We chose dishes from this list and ... we can recommend it. Starting with the appetizer, offered by the chef (!), up to the delicious desserts, everything was very fresh, tasty and well presented. We even met the chef, Andrea, who features a long professional experience, passion for food with the fact he is originally from Naples: someone with the right know-how for pastas and pizzas. La Bella Vita (nice life) is definitely a restaurant to be tried (more than once) if you are in the area of Carvoeiro. Value for money.

Do not be put off by the phone manner when booking or the outward appearance of this place. From the moment you enter it is a lovely environment with classy service to match. The perfect match of formal and friendly, helpful with the children and the menu and informative with the wines. Slightly more expensive than the average restaurant and perhaps a little more difficult to get to, but probably why it is a little more exclusive I suppose...if that is the correct word. Great dishes from superb fillet steak to perfect pizza with a wine list to match. Dont push the most expensive options and always ask for childrens portions as they are plenty big enough even for my 11 year old.

Make it a special meal and go for it!

We went in this restaurant with the idea to have a great Italian dinner.
We had a very good dinner, with tasty Italian pasta, and shrimps, etc...
This restaurant is excellent, but the prices are a bit expensive for the location.
I've been introduced to the "chef" who is an Italian guy, and cooks your dinner with passion.
I'll recommend this restaurant, but may be avoid to bring children, as the restaurant is very quite...

This place is a resort restaurant. The food is good, the setting is only average but if your not coming in from the resort itself you do feel like your eating in someone else's house. Wouldn't go back for that reason.

We have just been to Portugal yet again, La Bella Vita I would say was the best restaurant, fabulous food very fresh and tasty. It is not the first time we have visited La Bella Vita we always make it a choice when we visit we only stay for 1 week but most times we go twice in the week, I always wish we had done more. The staff are excellent great service and very friendly. I am getting hungry just talking about it, defiantly worth a try there is food to suit anyone, fine dining, pizza's which I am told are excellent and many pasta dishes. I am sure you will return once you have tried it.
