We visited Seattle prior to embarking on an Alaskan cruise. After doing a bit of sightseeing, we headed back toward our hotel and came across La Vita E' Bella. It was early....just the beginning of their dinner service, so we walked up and grabbed a table outside on the sidewalk being it was a beautiful evening. The service was very good, the food was also very good. We shared their Caprese appetizer, which was a little small for sharing....but very tasty. We both had a pasta dish. Seafood spaghetti and a ravioli special. Both were very good and fresh bread completed the meal. As we were finishing our wine, a gentleman began playing the accordion and singing. He was very entertaining! It was a great evening!!

We sat outside and were made to feel very welcome in a typical Italian way. The food was really good, the Italian wine was reasonably priced and very good and the service was friendly, warm and attentive but not overbearingly so. Their tiramasu was the best ever, and even a simple green salad tasted wonderful.

We were so excited to try this place since it smelled so delicious from afar but the service was far from appetizing. Our host was less than excited to seat us and didn't even alert us that our table was ready. After seating ourselves, we weren't offered anything to drink but he decided water would be enough. Next, when our waiter finally appeared he seemed slightly more enthusiastic about serving us but after he took our salad order he sadly forgot about us until rushing back 15 min later apologizing for his error. Every request we made seemed to be a bother and made us feel quite unwelcome. My pasta with leeks was excellent but my husband's spaghetti w regular tomato sauce wasn't anything to write home about, or trip advisor ;b.
Money would be better spent somewhere else.

We visited this charming restaurant this evening and had a great meal. The owner and wait staff were very attentive and the meal was delicious! My hard-to-please vegetarian husband enjoyed the good sized portion of the penne pesto. This Belltown restaurant offers inside and sidewalk dining, making it perfect for the recent warm weather in Seattle.

This charming place was one of the neighborhood restaurants on a list at our hotel. We walked over to check it out as friends were also coming to Seattle. Just seeing the tables on the sidewalk, the awnings was intriguing--the menu and the hostess reinforced our decision to book reservations.

We did sit outside and enjoyed a memorable dinner. Two of us had the fresh salmon special--and we each devoured our delicious 8 oz portion and accompaniments. Ditto for the guys with their shrimp and pasta. Each of our selections were among the specials. Had to have dessert--best Cannoli ever; other choices were limoncello and sorbet, also delicious!

The restaurant had an accordion player who was great--not too loud and good music. The neighborhood locals strolled by and overall, just a great setting. The weather was pleasant and added to the enjoyment!
