Description: WELCOME TO BELLA VITA RISTORANTE!We desire and dream about our food, attaching it to distant memories of childhood, friends, loved ones and family. We know that a wonderful meal is not about the food and drink we consume; it is a poignant experience bonding us to it eternally.Bella Vita Ristorante is an authentic and down-to-earth place, where the mouth-watering Italian and Irish cuisine heightens the informal ambience, the culinary inspired dishes and the thoughtfully selected wine list. Whether a guest prefers the rustic and cosy dining room or the amorous candle lit courtyard area, it is a gathering spot for those who want to revive their much-loved memories or create new ones.Situated in historic Kenmare in County Kerry in the South West of Ireland, Bella Vita Ristorante features Irish/Italian comfort food reborn as contemporary takes on classics prepared to order by our chefs, one of whom hails from Rimini in Italy.The new owners describe their acquisition of number 18 as a dream becoming a reality. They are simply passionate about fresh, authentic, Italian food and want to share their passion with you.

We found this restaurant from Frommer's Ireland guide book (use to be called Prego). We arrived for dinner right after they opened and were the only diners. But within 45 minutes they were packed. It is a small, cozy restaurant with good service, great food and reasonable prices. I had the penne pasta dish with sausage and chicken (substituted tomato sauce for cream sauce) and it was great - more than I could eat. I ordered a side salad that was a good size too. My husband had a vegetarian pizza which he said was outstanding. This restaurant also does a good carry out business so the locals must really like the food too! Would go back if we could stay in Kenmare longer!

My family and I went to Bella Vita for breakfast 2 different mornings while in Kenmare and really loved it! Would recommend a visit while in Kenmare. The Bap breakfast sandwich was delicious and the pancakes were a delight!

Nice casual little spot, good food and reasonable price. My husband and I split a calzone for dinner and we were both full.. Atmosphere pleasant but not fancy. Service good. Would stop here again.
