We have been here a number of times and the food is always good - however, this time I ordered the mushroom crepes I have had in the past and was told that they were not making crepes that evening. They recommended a pasta plate with the mushrooms and sausage - it was ok at best - the pasta seemed tough and heavy. I ate most of the mushrooms and sausage and left the pasta. Rather disappointing this time.

La Vita Bella was a very good choice for us. They had a lot of variety and really great specials.
The server was excellent and very attentive. I would recommend visiting if in that part of the city.

The food and service was great, reasonably priced. There was a good variety of Entrees and our food came out piping hot and certainly not shy on the portion size. . Service was friendly and attentive.

I chose this place to link up with friends who were visiting town. The place was relatively empty, and very quiet. We could have a conversation easily. The service was a bit slow but the servers were nice.

We read stellar reviews on Yelp but our experience did not match. The restaurant was barely 10% full when we showed up for our reservation but had to wait over 5 mins to be seated. Once seated we waited another 10 before our waiter showed up so we could order drinks. For a starter my husband ordered the minestrone but his soup was potato, broccoli and carrots - definitely not a minestrone.
Our entrees were overly salty and not very flavorful. Our waiter never came back to ask how the meals were or to let us order more drinks. The quality and service we're definitely not worth the price. We would not recommend.

Walked in for a 9:00pm reservation only to have them tell us they were closing early and come back another day. Open Table showed reservations available until 9:45

I took my friend to celebrate our birthdays that fell on either side of the weekend. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, the decir was homey and the feel was very relaxed and friendly. I had never been before but will probably go more often now that I have found it.

Picked this based on reviews. SPOT ON!! Was very happy with the friendly service. Husband enjoyed the salmon special. Child enjoyed smoked salmon farfalle dish. The spaghetti carbonara (a touted house classic) was good but I like my pancetta crispier and my sauce more runny (raw egg), but again, that is ME and my taste. The dish still tasted delicious! If we had room for dessert I'm sure it would have blown me away...this is a neighborhood treasure!
