Wonderful food and excellent service! This restaurant is great!
While the food and service were great, clearly the restaurant was focused on turning tables as fast as they could instead of offering a relaxed experience . Being Valentine’s Day, I wanted to have a great and relaxed dinner. But I felt like being pushed through a mass production factory. We had cocktails, appetizers, main course and dessert all in 55 minutes. Way too rushed!
And in fact, this meant less money for the restaurant. We were planning on having our cocktails and then getting a wine bottle. Things moved so fast, that cocktails lasted until well into the main course. So it didn’t make sense to ask for the wine anymore.
It was great. Our server, Jordan, treated us well. Girlfriend said her Salmon pasta was a bit bland.
Authentic Italian cuisine. Taste like mama's.
The food was great, well prepared and presented. The staff was friendly, professional, and attentive, without being burdensome. That was nice for a date night. Dessert and espresso hit the spot.
Fantastic food, great service.
Pasta was cooked the way we like it. Al dente!
The Carbonara was one of the best!
Wanted a good Italian meal and was not disappointed in the meal. Would go back again.
We were looking for good Italian and found it at La Vita E Bella. The food was scrumptious. The wine they recommended was delicious. The servers were attentive and we had a great time.
From the time we arrived to the time we left the servers were attentive and engaging . The food was perfect and every person in our party was very happy with the evening. The birthday party was one the best we have ever had at a restaurant in many years. Coming from an Italian family out of NY city we were so impressed with the meals and the presentation.
Ok I’m italian and let me tell you , they make one of the best Tagliatella in the U.S.A
MOLTO BUONA !
Amazing food and great service. Totally authentic Italian. Highly recommend
Completely uncomfortable place, get's smokey from cooking, eyes start burning (saw 2 people using visine) then they open the door so you can sit and enjoy freezing your butt off while eating dinner. Bread was hard as a rock. Food was ok.
Our server was amazing! The food was delicious and the ambiance was perfect!
The food is consistently delicious here, and they always have wonderful specials. It's much more truly "Italian" than many local places. The only thing I could say I dislike is the stupid TV playing a football game over the bar area during dinner. I prefer when they have the accordion player, and feel like during dinner on a weekend, the TV should be off.
My husband and I went for a date night here. We reserved in advance and had no idea with our reservation. Our server was a great guy and let us have our space, but was available when we needed anything. The restaurant itself is really cute and is definitely a great spot to grab wine or dinner with a friend, or a date. The food itself wasn't anything to write home about, but it was okay overall. Don't think I'd necessarily go back for the food specifically, but I'd definitely go back fora glad of wine and an app.
I love this restaurant so much! I’ve lived in Seattle for 20 years now, and this is probably the best Italian I’ve ever had (sorry mom). I can’t believe I’ve never been here before this, and I’m sure I will be going back again.
I had the fettuccine tartufo, my wife had a spaghetti di mare dish. Both were excellent. Seriously, it’s hard to make Italian food that isn’t too sweet, too salty, too “thin”. La Vita E Bella’s offerings are delicious, well proportioned, and left me with a satisfied feeling for the rest of the night.
The service was also excellent. Prompt, friendly without being cloying, warm.
If you want real Italian food in a warm, comfortable and authentic environment, do yourself a favor and eat here.
Out of 2 salads that we tried to order. The lettuce had frozen.
Terrific food! The owner was warm and personable!
Nice people and decent food, but after telling the server about an allergy I was served two plates of food with the one thing in the world I'm allergic to. That ingredient was not listed on the ingredients of either item on the menu and the server said nothing when we ordered. Underwhelmed by the response thereafter. The rest of the experience was fine, but not amazing food or service.
