We have been here numerous times . This was the first time it was a disappointment.
The noise level was so bad, we couldn’t hear ourselves talk . The food was tasteless also.
Maybe due to Covid and being closed for so long they need to get back to their normal routine

I took my two “children” ages 19 & 17. This restaurant is a little off the beaten path. From the exterior I was questioning letting my 17 year old daughter choose our restaurant however, from the minute we stepped inside our experience was amazing. Our waiter, Daniel, was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable about the restaurant and the menu. Our food was very authentic. My daughter had the eggplant Parmesan and it was some of the best we’ve had. My chicken entree was one of the best I’ve ever had. Dessert was incredible! We had the tiramisu and the spumoni. Both were homemade and so good! Can’t say enough about this restaurant and our experience!

5 years ago, our first night in Colorado Springs, we ate at La Bella Vita. We have returned infrequently since then, but the food has always been well-prepared, tastefully presented, and delicious. July 30th was our last night in Colorado Springs (we're moving north of Denver), and I can easily say there quality and attentive service were still as good as our first meal.

An amazing experience. The waiter was personable and professional, without being "stuffy". Explained exactly how the dishes we asked about prepared, the area in Italy the dish originated, and how they were all unique compared to other Italian restaurants, because of the area the chef was from. I'll be back!

Definitely a place to bring your kids. Not romantic, server ignored me, didn't tell me the specials, and rushed. Food was ok, nothing outstanding.

I got the tortellini that a friend recommended to me and it was amazing! As well as a mista salad before my entree and tiramisu for dessert which were both delicious. I can't want to go back and eat there again soon.

La Bella Vita was fantastic in every way! Our server, Ivan, was incredible. His recommendations were spot-on. He was extremely knowledgeable and struck the perfect balance between making sure we were taken care of without hovering. The food was phenomenal - we had the Rollatine di Pollo, and the chicken special that evening (served with spinach, potatoes, in a white wine and mushroom sauce), and we shared a side of pasta with the vodka cream sauce. Everything was delicious and cooked perfectly. We will most definitely be back!

My daughter and I both ordered a cocktail that was not good at all . When we mentioned it to the server he said ok would you like to order something else . I ordered a drink and my daughter ordered a coke . When mom the bill came we were charged for both drinks even though we immediately gave the first drink back because it tasted like weak tang and water . When we mentioned that we gave the other drinks back the server said sorry but it was nothing wrong with the drinks so the best I can do is give them to you for half price . He never mentioned that we would be charged for the first tasteless drink . When I asked about the manager he said this came from the manger . The tablecloths were dirty and the food was mediocre. We paid the bill and will never return to this place again .

Hi,
This was our first time to La Bella Vita. It was terrific.
We have spent considerable time visiting Italy, so we have a good basis for comparison.
The food was authentic, delicious and the quantities were generous.
The staff was very kind and attentive and knew the menu to be able to advise us.
We were so pleased and will go there again.

Was the first time going out after stay at home order lifted. It was also my first time here with my boyfriend and his mom (they love the place). Our server was so kind and looked for items not on the menu for mom, because frankly she’s a picky eater. She did like her food! All in all it was a great night out and different with health regulations, but none of that hindered the experience. Thanks and keep at it!
