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.
