La Bella Vita Ratings and Reviews
Food was fantastic! Service was unprofessional, too casual and very awkward. Also they advertise on their website they do 1/2 price bottles of wine on Wednesdays but apparently that was under old ownership. They don't offer that anymore and wouldn't honor it even though they haven't taken it off their website. Will go back for the food only, will likely do takeout to avoid the service and will gladly give my tips to the kitchen instead. Again, food was spectacular.
We are very particular about Italian food, and this is the only place in Colorado Springs, CO to meet our expectations. All of us (7) were very happy with our meals. In addition, our server was just terrific -- knowledgeable and fun. It was a great way to celebrate my 81st birthday. I know we will return several times before my 82nd!
I am not sure how this place has as high a rating as it does. I’m wondering if they are true reviews. I had a issue while dinning there. I will not get into it, but after trying to contact the
Restaurant no one ever respond. This alone shows they don’t care. If you check out my profile I have never left a bad review.
The food was bland and Un-flavorful. Most of the wait staff seemed upbeat but ours was terrible. The location is awful and the building as you pull up will make you wonder if you should go inside. The floor is all carpet with stains all over. It makes you question the overall cleanliness of the restaurant.
My advice Stay Away!
Nico our food extrodinar (waiter) was great. As he was describing the menu you could feel your mouth begin to water. The lasagna was incredible and the shrimp in tomato sauce was just as good. This was the third time we have been there and it just keeps getting better.
Great restaurant and Authentic Italian food prepared perfectly! We visit here a couple of times per year and have been extremely pleased each and every time. The manager and staff ensure you are well taken care of beside making you feel like your eating at their dining room table! Wine selection is spot on and the special dishes are amazing!
The Chicken Rolotini was freshly prepared and delicious. The sides of broccoli and "roasted" potatoes were flavorful, though one wouldn't likely recognize the potatoes as roasted. Timmy did a nice job as server, following up to be sure the wine and entree were to my liking.
What the restaurant lacks in ambiance it makes up for with the food. Both my spouse and I ordered veal dishes and both were exceptional. Having traveled a great deal in Europe it was refreshing to see veal on the menu in the U.S. as that is not usually the case. Wait staff was very friendly and attentive. Still looking for that restaurant in the U.S. that actually makes creme brûlée like the French! Will definitely return to try other items on their menu.
