A word from La Bella Vita Ristorante in enoteca Lounge
The new culinary experience, La Bella Vita Ristorante in Inoteka Lounge, will be approachable, intimate and engaging, referencing Trattorias surrounding the Piazzas of Italy. The interior design will complement the artful manner in which the food is prepared and served at the Antipasto Bar and Marketplace. The rustic finishes and textural materials will be genuine elements most commonly found in domestic Italian kitchens, such as marble, wood, copper and iron. Lighting and decorative fixtures will be strategically placed to enhance the food and create an intimate atmosphere; subtly illuminating the diverse dining areas. The color palate of the interior and patterns of the carpets and fabrics will be derived from both the food and the rich Italian history. The luminous colors of the ocean provide an additional dimension to the dining experience at Bella Vita. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Birthday weekend for my wife, was very restful. Food at La Bella was excellent and I expected the service to be the same but it wasn't. It was the off season so it wasn't very busy so I expected the service to be excellent. We had to wait for our server longer than acceptable for each course, and waited a really long time to get our check at the end of the meal. To top it all off our server messed up the check and change. Would have expected more from such an upper scale restaurant during a slow time of year. Thanks for the opportunity to review this restaurant. Brad"

  • "Celebrating my birthday and I couldn't have picked a better place in town. The bar music was a bit horrible, both my partner and I kept thinking the girl was howling the same songs over and over. But ip we ignored it, haha. The food and service were a amazing. The steak was cooked to perfection, easy to chew. The desserts were very delectable. If we both were into wine there seemed robe a notable wine list. I would say for a special occasion or group dinning this is the place."

  • "We enjoyed the newly remodeled restaurant at the Samoset Resort in Rockport, Maine. The atmosphere was just right for a romantic evening. Although, it was nearly dark when we arrived, the view of the grounds and ocean is beautiful. The waitstaff were courteous and efficient without hovering. Our meal was carefully executed and delicious. The scallops wrapped in prosciutto were perfectly cooked. I would definitely go back to the Samoset and perhaps sit in the adjoining bar to listen to some music and have their excellent pizza. As a local diner, I appreciate being able to go out to a beautiful spot, dine on great seafood, and spent two hours enjoying my date. We'll go back."

  • "We were a bit disappointed with the ambiance and service at this restaurant - they had advertised a special valentines day dinner but there wasn't much special about it. In fact, we felt like we were being rushed- maybe they overbooked?"

  • "Beautiful setting and views. Atmosphere welcoming. Noise level a little higher than I would have liked. This was a brunch at noon time and the selection of food was excellent. The ham, roast beef, omelettes and desserts were great!"

  • "This resort and restaurant is a commute for me but always worth the drive. Friday evening 1/24/14 we attended the 2nd annual "Ice Bar" event ... we will look forward to attending again next year. The outdoor festivities were a bit chilly on this particular night, but the bar and restaurant we welcomingly warm and inviting. Both food and service were excellent! This is a year round destination ... I'll be back in a couple of months and again in the fall ... and anytime an opportunity presents itself."

  • "This place excelled my expectations. The hostess brought us to our seat which had a nice view of the ice sculptures that were outside. The waitress was friendly and attentive. We started with the bruschetta which was amazing, three different selections and varieties to taste. We each had separate meals. My boyfriend had the new york strip with gnocchi and some greens. It was cooked to perfection, and well plated. I had the Chicken Saltimbocca, plated nicely, amazing taste, chicken was moist. It seemed to be busy but because of the ice bar and a function, but because of where we were seated it was not loud. It was a nice atmosphere, perfect food, and the wait staff was part of the best we've experienced. We will be back!"

  • "We had brunch here with a large group. The overall setting is nice, but the service was just ok. The food was what I would consider average for a buffet, but definitely not worth the price! We ordered room service later in the day from the restaurant and the food was much better!The hotel just had a renovation and made huge improvements."

  • "We booked a table from London prior to our arrival based on the reviews from trip advisor. We were not disappointed. The food was very good and reasonable. The restaurant has a fantastic view overlooking the ocean. The dining table are well spaced out so you don't feel so close to other diners. We will go back to the restaurant for sure the next time we're in Rockland and you bet we will recommend La Bella Vita to our friends too."

  • "Bella Vita is in the Samoset resort in Rockport with a lovely view out to the ocean from its lower level dining room. Wedge salad with blue cheese dressing was artfully presented on the plate and tasty. Portions are very large (it's Maine). Chicken parmesan was tasty and tender. This is a fine dining experience and the prices reflect that. Very pleasant waitress and since we were on the early side, we had the dining room to ourselves for the first half hour."
