We have been meaning to try this place for a while, finally got round to it and wasn't disappointed. Staff were very friendly on arrival and the food was great. Prices are reasonable and we will definitely be returning! Would advise to book, we did as it was a Saturday but still had to be seated earlier (6.30pm) as it... More

Been several times always beautiful food really friendly staff immaculately clean premises loads of car parking at the side. There is lots of choices for starters mains and puddings. Our gathering ranged from an 8 year old to an 86 year old and there was something for every one you can watch the chef spin the dough for freshly made... More

We seldom eat at Italian restaurants in the UK as Chinese or Indian are more our thing but visited La Bella Vita within a group of 17 for a Christmas meal. We arrived at 6pm and were surprised the place was almost full already so clearly has a good reputation with the Garforth locals. My wife and I shared 2... More

Yet again a lovely meal, great service and great atmosphere. My wife was very disappointed that they'd dropped lobster and crab ravioli from the menu but when the waiter realised this he got the chef to prepare one specially for her! Outstanding!

Around 24 of us have just had a very nice lunch at La Bella Vita a mixture of children, teenaged and adults. The food was really nice and the staff very attentive and helpful, we were not rushed and have all had a nice time I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant for good food and a nice atmosphere

Chose this restaurant as a good location to meet with friends. Went on a Thursday night which was reasonably busy. Excellent food and helpful friendly staff. Would definitely return.

Wide choice of menu. Abundance of waiting staff. Food was really really good but the service was ridiculously slow. We waited over 1 hour after our starters before the main course. Was it worth the wait? Yes but the experience would have been so much better if the wait hadn't been so long. I don't know if they were short... More

This is a great Italian restaurant on Garforth Main Street with good free nearby parking. There is a lot of truth in the old adage that a busy restaurant almost always serves good food. This place always seems to have lots of people enjoying good food and my most recent visit was no different. When you enter the restaurant there... More
