Staying at a nice resort, one would think the food at the in house restaurant would be at a minimum, authentic. The pizzas were great. The rest could have been picked up at the local diner and thrown on a nice plate. Disappointed considering everything...More

Went there for dinner with great expectations and was thoroughly disappointed. High prices, less than average food and slow service – very bad choice. Not much else to say.

Typically, when you see an Italian restaurant that exists in northern New England ..... you think "Olive Garden-esque" at best. La Bella Vita was a great surprise of regional Italian cuisine, using lots of fresh local ingredients (summer) and exceptional homemade pastas, etc. A great...More

This was our 3rd trip to the Samoset in 2 years, and overall we have had very good food and experiences at the restaurant. The fare is somewhat standard/solid--not foodie/creative--but you can't beat the views and the servers are always pleasant and attentive. Suggestions: --at...More
