Love this place. Have never been disappointed. It was a slow night and we had the manager serve us. He was awesome. Food was so tasty and great portion size! Atmosphere was perfect. Highly recommend this place.

My kids and I decided to have Mother's Day lunch here. Food was amazing, everything is made in house and fresh. We had a small hiccup and the manager was amazing at correcting the problem, he truly cares about the experience which made the difference all the better. I will definitely come back.

Really nice authentic Italian food, great atmosphere. Service is a bit on the slow side so don't stop in if you're in a rush.

I wish I could give it a 3.5 star. The servers all seemed quite lovely, but the manager was rude, had no smile, and placed us in a back room with dusty plates and cutlery. It was very busy but left us feeling like a totally unappreciated customers. Bread to start was dry (cut an hour or so ago probably).... More

We went to La Vita E Bella based on the online reviews. We arrived around 6pm and the place was practically empty. We ordered a few of their specialty drinks, they were very nice. Service was friendly but not overly attentive, considering there were only 6 tables. We had to flag the server down to order our mains, filled our... More

Food was pretty good. A little salty would be the only concern. Tasty and fresh otherwise and reasonably priced

We have been to this restaurant several times now. The food is always fantastic, but it was the service on our last visit that prompted my review. I often visit this restaurant with my wife, but on my last visit, I went with some friends just before a Flames game. I booked a table for four an hour before the... More

While we were waiting for our table, at least three groups of people were turned away. It is a good idea to have a reservation here, especially on a Saturday night. While we waited, we thought that it was a nice gesture that the hostess offered us drinks to purchase. Once seated, we found the server to be very attentive... More

My sister came to town with my niece, so my other sister and her family and I decided to get together to share a meal. We decided on La Vita E Bella mainly for location - it's very close proximity to my home. My sister booked on Open Table a few hours before we met, and we had a table... More
