“We look forward to returning to La Bella Vita.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

This restaurant is located in the Harborside Hotel where we were staying again after multiple previous visits. Like the hotel, the staff at La Bella Vita goes out of their way to make sure your needs are met. We have had breakfast, lunch and dinner at La Bella Vita and can’t remember being disappointed with a meal. The menu is Italian with a nice integration of seafood. The wonderful pizzas are handmade in the pizza oven behind the nicely stocked bar. The breakfast menu is a nice mix of lite items and Italian inspired breakfast foods. Do not miss the Maine blueberry pancakes. We recommend La Bella Vita.

“Good menu and good value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

Take a break from seafood and enjoy some great Italian food. The Veal Scallopini was very good with a large portion. The Old World Bello Filet Trio was good but not great. The thin crust pizza is great...highly recommend the Sicilian and Pizza Margherita.

“Best Food, Best Service Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

Jamie was a great waitress, she explained everything. I had the pasta, choose your own sauce, and I added spinach, onions, broccoli, and sausage. This was the best pasta dish I ever ate. My husband had the skirt steak and his was fantastic and soft, perfectly cooked. We were at the Harborside Hotel Spa hotel, it is in the lobby. Fantastic.
